Advising

Jason Smith

Advising is a process of exchange information that empowers students to realize their maximum potential, be in academic or personal issues. The advising process is students- centred and will result in the students gaining a clearer understanding of himself/herself and the experience of higher education.

Counselling

Martina Smith

Counselling takes place when a counsellor sees a client in a private and confidential setting to explore a difficulty the client is having, distress they may be experiencing or perhaps their dissatisfaction with life, or loss of a sense of direction and purpose. It is always at the request of the client as no one can properly be ‘sent’ for counselling.

Counselling IS NOT:
 Giving advice.
 Being judgmental.
 Attempting to sort out the problems of the clients.
 Expecting or encouraging a client to behave as the counsellor would behave if confronted with a similar problem in their own life.
 Getting emotionally involved with the client.
 Looking at a client’s problems from your own perspective, based on your own value
system.

Consultation

Professional counselling is a safe and confidential collaboration between qualified counsellors and clients to promote mental health and wellbeing, enhance self-understanding, and resolve identified concerns. Clients are active participants in the counselling process at every stage.

Test/ Inventories

Jason Smith

The term “test” most frequently refers to devices for measuring abilities or qualities for which there are authoritative right and wrong answers. Such a test may be contrasted with a personality inventory, for which it is often claimed that there are no right or wrong answers.
