Concerns we take care through counseling :
Most of the behavioral concerns can be helped through counseling. This includes anxiety, stress, homesickness, loneliness, anger, inferiority, family and/or relationship difficulties and identity issues.
Counseling can also help in other issues like: adjustment, time management, motivation, shyness, lack of confidence, concentration, sleep disturbance, aimlessness, self-control, dealing with dilemmas, making decisions or choices, as well as more specific problems such as bullying & harassment, including thoughts of harming self or others.
It is absolutely normal if you have any of the above shared issues. We all go through such phases in life where we don't feel equipped enough to help ourselves on our own. In such cases "IT IS OK TO SEEK HELP."
There are professionals at IIIT-D to whom you can approach when these situations arise and when you feel overwhelmed and become involved beyond what seems comfortable and appropriate.

Individual Counseling:
Where one to one interaction is held between a client and a psychologist. One gets an opportunity to express out his/her concerns freely and to discover ways to implement positive solutions.
Group Counseling:
