INTRODUCTION

 

Counselling is a crucial aspect which can shape the life of an individual. Mere education or possession of talent is not worth until it is not used in an appropriate manner. PARAS India India believes that guidance is necessary for the marginalized community in order to explore their talent and be at par with the mainstream. Counselling at PARAS India is followed in an integrated manner where personal, social and legal guidance is provided in every possible manner.

METHODS
 

We primarily follow the following steps:

 

  • GROUP AND TECHNICAL COUNSELLING

Our first step will be group counselling, where while we do career counseling, students would be given the opportunity to interact with our counsellors. This exercise will be done to develop a comfort zone between students and counsellor.This will help the counselor to understand their psychic state and their problems. The actual process of professional counselling will be initiated where subject stream and need specific counselling to particular group or individual, depending on assessment, results will be given.

 

  • INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENT

Under this, individual case studies will be assessed and analysis will be done in order to give targeted and specific counselling. We do this in case of mental and legal counseling.
