"Student guidance" is direction and assistance provided for the purpose of enhancing each student's social skills and initiative, while respecting personal qualities and fostering individuality. Whereas Counselling is the professional assistance in coping with personal problems, including emotional, behavioural, vocational, marital, educational, rehabilitation, and life-stage (e.g., retirement) problems. Counselling and guidance are integral for maintaining the physical and mental health of the college community and Ansar Women’s College places a high value on both. These are necessary for students to understand their skills, interests, and personality to have a better student life.The vision of the college guidance and counselling cell is to provide psychological support to students to identify their strengths and weakness, focus on their strengths to become positively contributing members of society.
