Admissions Open All Through the Year/Self-paced

If you are wondering why we would like to train you into a competent counsellor, the journey began four decades ago when behavioural scientists felt that more people went to bed hungry for love or a kind word than those who went hungry for food. With an idea of reaching out and supporting individuals through their challenges of life, Banjara Academy started a free counselling centre. Additionally, we were convinced that every considerate, compassionate and caring person can reach out and enrich the lives of others – through empowerment. Hence we have been running short term courses, PG Diploma in Guidance and Counselling and since 1999 a full-fledged one-year Diploma in Counselling (DCS) whereby we have empowered thousands of genuine individuals from all backgrounds, ages and academic levels to sharpen their skills and to be more effective in counselling. For those not living in Bangalore we initiated a distance learning course in 1995, which was converted into an online pg diploma in guidance and counselling course with personal mentoring ten years ago.
