Mr. Harish H D

Mr. Harish H D, who is a counselor and psychotherapist, visits our centre once a week and spends a couple of hours with the trainees their parents and siblings. He gives them a patient hearing and discusses strategies and techniques to make the young adults more independent, self-reliant and responsible.

The counseling sessions mainly focuses on:

  • Planning for the future of the trainee
  • Improving the quality of life of the trainee
  • The well being of the trainee
  • Behavioural issues, to concentrate more on the strengths of the trainee
  • Role of the parents in getting placement and career development of the trainee, ultimately making the trainee more functional

All the parents who have participated in the discussions so far have benefited immensely and are very happy that they have been initialised to think in a particular direction. The suggestions and action plans given by Mr. Harish have been accepted and the parents feel motivated and are encouraged to implement the ideas very gladly.
