Counselling empowers diverse individuals, families and groups to accomplish mental health, wellness, education and career goals. In simple terms, Counselling is important because it gives you the opportunity to sort out a problem or issue that you’ve had trouble figuring out on your own. Established in 1980, Alokaya, FPA Sri Lanka’s Counselling Centre operates under the purview of the Medical Unit. It primarily supports people with different types of sexual, reproductive health and psychosocial problems and at present has widened its scope to include other areas of personal concerns as well.
