A counsellor is capable of both hearing and holding a child's pain and that is sacred.
A child weighed down by emotional despair is unable to focus on anything cognitive - including academics. The counselling cell is a nurture house - a safe space for the students of the school to receive therapeutic support from qualified and experienced psychologists, primarily using play and art- based therapeutic approaches to help young students.
Therapists are assigned various grades for smooth functioning. Individual sessions are conducted to help students and their parents cope with various mental health challenges. Group interventions are also conducted at the classroom and foyer levels, focusing on age – appropriate and relevant topics. Special health and personal safety based interventions are conducted at various stages of development in addition to the activities of Dare to Care Week.
The Jamnabai Adolescent Mentor Programme is a peer mentoring programme that is unique to our school. The primary focus of this programme is to train a select group of students with the basic skills and knowledge in the areas of leadership, empathy, critical thinking and decision making to enable them to be of emotional assistance to the student body.
