1.      Training of Counsellors through courses of different duration.

Seven principles underlying the the work of the Institute


Each person and community:

- Is Worthwhile

- Is Unique

- Has Gifts and Potentials to Develop

- Has Problems that can be Managed

- Is a Steward of the Planet’s Resources

- Is a Catalyst of Personal and Social Change

- Is a Partner in the Divine Cosmic Process of Peace, Justice and    Transformation.


The Director of the Institute Dr. B.J. Prashantham has defined Counselling as


“A relationship between the counsellor and the counsellee characterized by trust and openness, in a one to one or a small group relationship, whereby the counsellee is helped to work through his/her interpersonal and/or intrapersonal problems and crises.”


Therefore Counselling enables a Counsellee to:


-         Mobilize  internal and external resources and  find new options in facing life.

-   Discover and develop God given inherent potentialities and lead an integrated life.

-         Make contributions for the wellbeing of his/her fellow human beings.
