Changing trends in Counseling!

Looks like there is yet one more way in which the new generation differs from the older, the advent of career and education counselling. Typically, it was customary for parents, or even the children, to choose the correct career path which would balance both emotional and financial well-being. However, in the last decade, there has been a rise, especially in metropolitan India, in families seeking advice, or counselling from a third party.

Counselling started out primarily as a way for young college-students to explore their passions, and thereby find a way to make a career out of these interests. The major question of what should I be doing in life was more easily answered with the help of a professional. Career counselling centers offered the students one-on-one time with a counselor.

And after a few meetings or talks, a plan was suggested, with inputs from the parents, student and the professional, to 'get on the right track', so to speak. Later, personality and psychometric tests were added, to accurately gauge not only the students' interests, but also their aptitude. A combination of the two was analyzed to provide career guidance to the student.

The once self-made decisions about where to study and what course to study in college are now being carefully assessed and made with the help of a knowledgeable counsellor. Today, many counselling centers offer services in four broad areas, aptitude and psychometric testing, career consultations, higher-education consultations and entrance examination tutoring. Specific packages are available that can be further customized to suit each individual student's needs.
