Counselling Report:

Childhood is the most crucial stage of human life. Children should not have any worries and should not have to work; life should be happy and trouble-free. Childhood is usually a mixture of happiness & wonder. It is generally a time of playing, learning, socializing, exploring, and worrying in a world without much adult interference, aside from parents. But sometimes, their life conditions differ & so it affects their life completely. Due to this, children feel unhappy, anxious, fearful & angry. They may lack concentration, be forgetful, impulsive, have difficulty in controlling anger & fight, suffer unexplained headaches, trouble in maintaining friendships & dealing with people, feel like hurting themselves or others.

These are the common scenarios and they reflect child’s reaction to his/her circumstances of life or his phase of development. Thus, counselling helps in the process of helping them to realize the potentials in them to solve their problems.

Thus, the main role of counsellor is to create a confidential & safe platform for children to air their feelings & experiences. The institution which has actively running counselling centre can be considered as Child –friendly as it helps to solve the problems faced by children living at that place & creates a positive environment where a child can share his/her views or thoughts or feelings.

The main aim of counselling is to fulfil the emotional & intellectual needs of street children. Mainly it focuses on Adolescence as it is a transition period from childhood to adulthood, children where face many mental, emotional & intellectual problems due to their life conditions. Because of it, they may suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Stress, anxiety, eating problems, learning disabilities, depression, social disorders, etc.

Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.
(Lyndon B. Johnson)
