An educational counselor is trained and has good amount of knowledge on
educational opportunities. For e.g. If the student wants to study abroad,
wants scholarship, or needs any information on college training programmes
then these counselors help them out with the required information. They help
young futures to develop good personality and embrace life skills so that they
can face the challenging world better.
Education counselors focus their energies on identifying and dealing with personal,
behavioural, social and scholastic problems that affect student performance, achievement
and even relationships. They provide individual/group counselling on varied issues like bullying,
peer pressure, pressure to perform, low self-esteem and so on. This helps them to come out more
confident, mentally strong and mature to handle situations affecting their educational and vocational life.
