Socio-emotional Counselling

About Socio Emotional Counselling

Counselling, as defined by the American Counselling Association, involves applying principles of mental health, psychology, and human development to promote wellness, personal growth, and career development. It focuses on helping individuals to make positive changes in their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, with the support of a non-judgmental and confidential environment.
Socio-emotional Counselling (SEC) aims to support students in maintaining their social and emotional well-being throughout their university years, while also ensuring that they can thrive academically. SEC utilizes three levels of prevention:

Primary Prevention: SEC organizes awareness programs such as seminars and events on world mental health day. 
Secondary Prevention: SEC conducts workshops addressing mental health concerns, such as stress and anger management. 
Tertiary Prevention: SEC provides individual and group counseling services to students.

By implementing these prevention methods, SEC strives to create a supportive environment where students can prioritize their mental health and successfully pursue their academic goals.
