Personal Counselling (Optional)

ECTA will provide students enrolled into the Graduate Certificate of Social Science (Professional Counselling) with three (3) hours of personal counselling.

The intent of the personal counselling is to enhance students’ personal development and to help students step into a Client’s shoes and enter the world of the Client.

Pastoral Counselling and Academic Counselling

  • ECTA will appoint counsellors to provide pastoral counselling and emotional support for students to help them cope with mental stress related to a new environment or a course of study;
  • Support will also be provided to students who do not appear to be coping well with academic activities. The student concerned may be referred to the Academic Director who may recommend or direct the student to attend supplementary classes or have arrangements made for him/her to develop the relevant academic areas to a level deemed adequate to perform satisfactorily in the course.
