Overview of Counselling (OOC)

The Banjara Academy wishes to be known as an institution with a heart. It is committed to improving the quality of life of the people it touches in its journey. Under the banner, Helping Hand, Banjara Academy has always been offering free counselling in person for anybody in emotional distress, firmly believing that such support should never be at a fee. For the last couple of decades, anybody in Bangalore, India, in dire need to talk to somebody has had to just call Banjara Academy and fix up an appointment with one of our volunteer counsellors or just walk into our offices in RT Nagar and RV Road, India and meet one of our volunteer counsellors. With the advent of the internet and emails, many have also been writing to us about their problems and we have been replying to them, doing our best to be there for them as counsellors. With the free online counselling service by email, we are seeking to reach out, beyond Bangalore, to more people (now, you may be anywhere in the world) and provide you with some degree of emotional support, whatever we can, as we have always been doing so for the past couple of decades - emotional support that you may be struggling to find in your life.

We are starting the next batch of our part-time Diploma in Counselling Skills next month. For those who do not live in Bangalore, we offer an on-line program which is currently on hold as we are revising and improving the content. If you live in any part of the world and wish to get an overview of the practice of reaching out, giving emotional support to others …. and in the process improving your own quality of life, you can enroll for a simple.


Just mail mycounsellor@banjaraacademy.org now sharing your problems, your worries, your anxieties, your fears. Your counsellor will reply to you, and be there for you until you need her to help you cope and get going.
