Students can meet counsellors for a number of reasons. Some of them wish to seek advice about their personal issues, understand themselves better, learn better ways to deal with life difficulties.

During counselling session, the counsellor works with students to solve their problems. The counsellor’s role is to help students clarify their goals and facilitate them to develop the skills that they need to solve the problems in future.
