WELCOME to ACC

At the Moment, Our Centre offers a range of counselling services to children, youth and Employees. Besides we have centralized teaching programmes at schools, churches and other related social institutions or inform of periodic seminars or trainings.

Our counselling services are confidential and all teachings pull together not only children and youth but also any other related stakeholders so as to learn and explore any topic or situation and discuss any concerns relate to our targeted groups and clients. All Our counsellors are professionally trained, well experienced and can assist clients in areas such as academic, career and social/personal concerns.

Generally, We Support Children and Youth to Develop Positve Mentality; Create Hope; Set Life Goals; Learn to Cope and Build Confidence

Our Mission is to provide quality professional counselling services that outshine the expectation of our clients. We have committed ourselves to "dare to care”

Surely “There is no Health without Mental Health” and so, Counselling help Children and Youth to develop Mental Health. Mental health (like our physical health) is a reserve for living. It allows children and youth to learn, work, play and find meaning of life. It helps them during hard times and develops positive state of mind.

From youth point of view, mental health means…

 How does it work?

Counselling is simply known as “Talking Therapy”. It attempts to restore hidden talents, potentials, alternatives, solutions and abilities from the “unconscious mind” and bring them to the surface (conscious mind).

The amazing fact is that our conscious (aware mind) constitutes only 3% of the entire mind while 97% of it is unconscious mind (unaware mind). Most of youth and children problems lie at unconscious mind. Root causes of all Mal-adjusted behaviour of children and youth are poor mentality and lack of social life/social skills.The purpose of counseling is established based on this and clients are then, guided to use the conscious mind to recover what is in the unconscious mind and learn life and social skills.

Counsellor's task is to help clients make sense of their experiences and open up possibilities for positive change. We do believe:

1. People have the strength and resources to make necessary changes in their lives

2. Sometimes individuals need a little help to tap into their strengths and become resilient 

 Why Counselling?

It is clearly noticed in the community that children and youth are facing number of behavioural and social related issues. Because of some social reasons chidren and youth are too embarrassed or ashamed to openly share with parents, teachers or other people around what is bothering them, or they just do not have an appropriate person to turn to or they lack as such basic skills as communication skills, problems solving skills and life-goals setting skills.   

At these moments Counselling is a really useful option and can be a rational alternative for those who wish to grow to the next level of positive thinking, faith, well-being or improve some areas or aspects of life.

Sometimes people think a counsellor will tell them what to do. Counsellors are trained to know about a wide range of concerns and experiences, but every individual is unique and therefore must make his/her own decisions. Counsellors help to:

  • Define a problem/challenge
  • Think about alternatives and resources available
  • Figure out what to do first, second onwards
  • Make use their their own strengths and believe themselves
  • Check up unhelpful habits, coping methods, self-defeating beliefs, values and attitudes and work on them
  • Consider different positive ways of thinking
  • Begin to make decisions

We Dare to care and we are there to support. Welcome
