NSPL offers confidential and free professional counselling services for its students in order to help them in handling various stressful situations and to cope up with their problems for their better social adjustment and good professional performance. There are designated counsellors who listen to the issues of the students and hold one-to-one counselling sessions for solving their problems.
Counselling can offer you a space to talk and think about problems and difficulties, and many people find it helpful to be able to do this with someone who is not a friend or family member. Our counsellor can work with you to help you make decisions and changes that may work better for you.
There are many different reasons why a student may want help from the counselling service. You don’t need to fully understand what is causing the difficulty in order to make an appointment, and the nature of the problem might become more clear during the initial assessment/ first meeting.
Some of the difficulties that students often raise include
Confusion about career, stream and aim
Depression, homesickness, loneliness
