About the Counseling Cell
The college has a Counseling Cell to provide counseling to the students. The Students’ Counseling Cell of our college has conducted so many valuable and useful programmes for the benefit of our students. It is pleasing to see that our activities, programmes and counseling classes by eminent psychologists and seminars have done much good to the students to overcome their psychological problems, mental difficulties and personal problems. In order to ensure the psychological wellbeing of all students in the campus, various activities are conducted in each year.
Counsellors are effective helpers who are able to reach in as well as reach out. Students are helped to work through their problems by developing self-awareness and overcome problems by using new coping strategies. Attempts are made to understand the behavior without imposing value judgments. The counsellor makes every effort to be intellectually and affectively available to the client throughout the process.
In order to resolve day to day academic and personal problems of the students in the classroom and hostel , mentors are appointed for a batch of 20 students, and they will counsel the respective students once in a week in the Articulation and Idea Fixation (AIF) class, to solve the problems come across during their course of study.
This is a continuous process till the end of academic career of the student. During the last semester of study students are advised for placement or higher studies or self-employment along with proper career guidance. Reasonable numbers of students have secured jobs, admissions for their higher studies and they in turn guide their juniors for their prospective admissions.
Students who require psychiatric help are referred to practising professional psychiatrists and therapists, along with their counselling sessions in college. Many students have benefitted from these sessions, as a result of which they are now able to handle their lives with improved self-esteem and confidence.
In addition to the above Dr.K.Chellapandian has been the student counselor of the college. Personal counseling is given to the needy students.
