Welcome to the Indian Institute Of Counselling. The Indian Institute of Counselling is fully committed to the emotional well-being and psychologically healthier and balanced lives of individuals and institutions. It offers various services, including personal growth and development training, academic and life-skills training (effective communication, interpersonal skills, adaptation to new situations, managing relationships, decision making, assertiveness, a sense of positivity in life, coping with stress, being solution oriented etc.)
"Working as an intern at the Indian Institute of Counselling has been a great and life changing experience. The experience of conducting workshops has helped me sharpen my communication skills, interpersonal skills, presentation skills and has made me more professional. The counselling sessions and interaction with clients broaden my horizon and has made me a more sensitive, empathetic, patient, accepting and a calm person. I get to meet people from different backgrounds, different life experiences and different age groups having varied preferences and expectations. Personally, the internship has helped me become more sorted, at peace with myself, happy, optimistic and knowledgeable. The institute provides constant intellectual stimulation and a safe and secure space for discussions of all kinds. The personal touch to professional relationships is the highlight of the institution and it feels like a family."
