In a context where social problems stemming from the post-war context and other family issues related to export of human capital is on the rise, there has been a continuous call for professional counselling to help people to overcome their emotional problems. As the developing economy of the country demands less freedom and more stress in the workplace, more and more employees battle with increasing stress. Hence, social patterns, work pressure and widespread competition in a background where family support systems are in decline or unable to respond to contemporary needs, the necessity for counselling is increasingly felt across all sectors. The issue arises as the country lacks adequate trained and qualified counsellors to cater to this increasing demand. This programme therefore aims to cater this gap and equip those who have the passion for counselling with recognized, professional qualifications.
