Problems encountered in implementing the practice

Initially Students weren’t serious about the counselling and considered it as a leisure period. They hesitated to share their personal grievances and even their academic problems too. Girls students were reluctant to share their thoughts, especially the gents staff. On the other hand, faculty were not confident enough in handling the student’s issue and comfortably take over the counselling session.

Later the need for training was envisaged and an intensive one was conducted to all by a trained counsellor.

Adolescent phase is one in which students usually tend to believe their peer group and start distancing from parents. Most of their personal issue remain unnoticed by either parents or teachers. The issues aggravate to an extent that leads to serious consequences in the career of the student. A diligent and intellectual student can end being unsuccessful in their academics or even an average student can create great difference in all their endeavors. Thus in this phase a mentor/counsellor act as a facilitator thereby monitoring their activities and guiding them to achieve their goal.

Mentors are similar to the reins in a horse that drive them properly to the target and counsellor are similar to a blinder and hence do not allow the student to get indulged in unwarranted activities. This practice is universal and has to be followed in any educational institution to be guide the student community.
