MCJ counselling Centre

MCJ Counselling Centre has been functioning as a unit of the Department of Counselling Psychology for the past few years. The counsellors serving here are postgraduates and professionally qualified in dealing with the clients. The centre has 13 specially trained counselling psychologists: among them 2 counsellors are faculty members of the college and 6 are alumnae of the college; 2 counsellors have graduated from other colleges and one is a former faculty member. All counsellors are from different backgrounds and areas of expertise and they strive to provide the best possible mental health care to each and every individual who walks in through our doors. MCJ Counselling Centre has been extending its services not only to outside clients, but especially to the students of MSSW. Two counsellors, Mr. Daniel Benjamin and Ms. Minita, are available on all days to provide counselling services to the students of MSSW.

In response to the COVID-19 crisis and the subsequent lock down, our team has been providing support to the public via telephonic counselling. We have been receiving numerous calls every day seeking counselling for de-addiction or stress/anxiety caused by the curfew.
