For the emotional and mental well being of every human being, counseling by a trained professional could serve as an appropriate help. The myth that counselling is only for the problematic has been replaced by the fact that counselling prevents from problems. Counselling foster better life skills like decision making communication skills, interpersonal relationships etc. Both preventive and remedial counseling provide help. Parents and teachers are also counselled and planned follow-ups and personal counselling sessions help to solve the existing problem and also to prevent high risk behaviours.
Effective parenting sessions with the parents and counselling workshops and training programs promotes better parent child and better student-teacher relationships. Educational counselling helps to impart effective study skills, handling exams and managing stress.
The first step towards the career choice is to know yourself. First and foremost the life skill “Self awareness” starts the process of career planning. Classes VII onwards interact with the counsellor in groups to know and learn the process of career planning. Subsequently the role of personality traits, aptitude and interests are understood. This is followed by information on careers in three different streams namely Commerce, Science and Humanities. Questions like
- “Which subjects I should take?”
- “Hotel Management Karne ke leye kya karna parta hai?”
- “What is BBA?”
And so on are addressed and doubts and confusions are cleared. After these sessions students may require face to face sessions for which they meet the counsellor personally.
Career Counselling sessions – Career talks were arranged for class XI and XII on 15th and 16th Dec. 2008. Students were exposed to information regarding careers namely Fashion Industry, Hospitality, Acturial Science, Clinical research and careers in management.
