Creating an environment of trust and confidence in the campus is what is created by the efficient team of counselling at St Mary’s College, Thrissur. A Counselling Unit comprising of trained counsellors, Sr Grace Thomas, Sr Stenny Grace, Sr Rose Ann and Sr Noel functions in the college to deal with academic, personal, emotional and psychological problems encountered by students. Counselling is confidential and all the students are given a chance to meet the counsellors. Sr Grace Thomas and Sr Stenny Grace are always available for consultation in the campus and also all the students on a rotation basis attend the counselling sessions at least twice a year. If an emergency occurs students are directed to the counselling team by the tutors. Students who require medical help or advanced treatment are referred to specialists.
Counselling facility is extended to faculty also to relieve them of the personal and official stress. Common counselling sessions are given to faculty and students.
