The essentiality of counselling programme
It is needless to state that there is no area in the modern world where counselling is not required. Broken families, problems among students and teenagers, psycho-somatic disorders during adolescence, un-expected tragedies in life, bereavement of loved ones and loneliness in life, mental stress and strain, unhealthy competition in the present trend of globalization and materialism, etc. lead to different sorts of crises in everybody developing despair, dejection and hatred to oneself and to the society. Individual and community life is shattered causing its reverberation in the society. The present situation necessitates a large team of qualified professional counsellors to uplift self-esteem, build up personality and restore peace in families and groups.
