The Counselling & Coaching Centre at SP Jain supports the goal of crafting global leaders by focusing on providing support services for personal, psychological, academic, cultural, and leadership development of our students.
The Counselling & Coaching Centre is committed to enhance our students’ overall well-being and personality development within the broader global and cultural scenario.
Coaching involves encouraging self-reflection to unlock a student’s potential to maximise his or her own performance by helping them to learn from experience.
Professional counselling is a professional relationship that will empower students to accomplish mental health, wellness, education, and career goals. Our counsellors work with our students on strategies to overcome obstacles and personal challenges that they are facing. Counselling is a collaborative effort between the counsellor and a student.
Professional counsellors can help students identify goals and potential solutions to problems which cause emotional turmoil; seek to improve communication and coping skills; strengthen self-esteem; and promote behaviour change and optimal mental health. The counsellor uses listening and questioning to build self-awareness and self-confidence in the student. The goal is to help the student deal with something difficult.
Coaching does not focus on the past – like counselling may. The coach acts as a catalyst for students to gain a deeper understanding of themselves.
A mentor is a wise and trusted guide and advisor. The mentor is the teacher that shares their experience while bringing the “mentee” up the ranks. The role of the mentor is to build capability. The developmental mentor helps the learner discover their own wisdom by encouraging them to work towards career goals or develop self-reliance.
A consultant is an expert who is called on for professional or technical advice or opinions. They are relied on to understand the problem and present solutions.

“Hello everyone, from our beautiful campus in Singapore!

“Hello everyone and a warm welcome from SP Jain’s Sydney Campus! To me, counselling is about being non-judgmental, and to show unconditional empathy, respect, trust, and support. Counselling is also about self-actualisation – finding or creating meaning that is important to you. Counselling is not so much about us providing answers to questions you might have, but it is about us working together on what really matters to you. I also truly believe you are the experts of your own lives. If I give you some tools, it is up to each one of you to decide what you want to do with them. There is no one right or wrong way of doing it – just different ways. What an amazing journey you have embarked on – it is a journey I am excited to be part of. I look forward to getting to know you all!”
