Greetings from the Premier Counselling Institute of India- The T M A Institute of Counselling, Kottayam
We live in a complex world. The Covid situation has literally changed our world and the way we live. Problems and crisis is not alien today. Everyone irrespective of their financial status or religion or caste are facing this unprecedented crisis in their life. Its not just covid, our very life style has caused distress and crisis in our day to day life. Hence there is a higher need for people to seek professional help so that they can face challenges and crisis in life creatively and meanigfully.
Look around today you will find that there is no dearth of counsellors today. Every Tom Dick and Harry who have done a short course in counselling have proclaimed themselves as counsellors and motivators. What is needed today is qualified and experienced counsellors and psychotherapist who have put years and years of clinical practise and have a good academic backround to help the people in distress to live life qualitatively different. It is here that TMA Institute of Counselling comes to the fore. This institute has a history of more than 34 years and has been led by able qualified counsellors like Rev. Dr. T.J Thomas, Rev. Dr. Abraham Kuruvilla, Rev. Dr. George Varghese and Rev. Dr. Jacob Cherian. Each of these directors, along with trained clergy and lay counsellors who served this institute from time to time have built up this institution by offering quality counselling and psychotherapy services for the last so many years. Every year the Institute caters to more than 500 people who come to this counselling institute to find a remedy or seek help in coping with a crisis that they are dealing in. Thankfully they all have gone back healed and it these healed and empowered people who act as our advertisers reffering people to this centre so as to seek help and empower themselves. So friends the doors are open. Come and go back empowered or refer someone whom you feel that they need professional counselling help.
This insititute is not just an institute that offers counselling and psychotherapy services but it is also a centre for research and training. The Institute offers a two year Post Graduate Course in Counselling and Psychotherapy [ MCP] and a One Year Diploma in Clinical Pastoral Counselling [ DCPC]. Both these courses are recognised by the Senate of Serampore College. Along side we also offer short terms course for people who want to know both the basics and advanced methods of counselling practise.
So welcome you all to this institute. Help and Studies and Training is just a call away.
Rev. Dr. Joe Joseph Kuruvilla
