ST. XAVIER'S COUNSELLING CENTER
St. Xavier's Counselling Centre has made a positive impact on the
students of the college relating to student counselling on various problems they
confront. Details of the availability of the counsellors are put up on the
Notice Boards of the different departments of the college.
Student counselling is gaining popularity all over the world. Students go
for counselling to get an unbiased, non judgmental outlook to some of the
current issues concerning them.
The Personal Counselling Sessions are conducted at St Xavier’s Counselling
Center by an experienced counsellor to help students resolve the problems that
they confront. The sessions are client centered, on one to one basis. The
emphasis is laid to understand the student’s problem using professional methods
and provide strategy to help them handle it effectively. Chances are that
whatever problems a student has, the counsellor has seen it before and has lots
of good advice on it.
Choosing the right career path is often a dilemma that the students face. The
center provides vocational guidance to students based on their personality and
interest. For personality appraisal the center conducts a battery of tests to
provide your personality profile which gives insights into the work environment
suitable for you. Understanding your personality is helpful in choosing the
right career path. For example, a person with creative personality will succeed
as a writer and a person who is an introvert is less likely to succeed in face
to face sales promotion.
Interest test assesses a student’s major field of interest. It is often said “Do
what you love, love what you do”. If you choose a field that excites you, you
will not only enjoy your work but also excel in your chosen field. For these
tests the counselling center can be contacted.
