Welcome to the new website of APS Jammu Cantt.



Counselling is a relationship of trust between a Counsellor and a Counselee (Client) where confidentiality is a paramount.It is the act of helping the client to see things more clearly and possibly from a different view-point. This can enable the client to focus on feelings, experiences or behaviour with a goal of facilitating positive change.


The role of the counsellor is very important as he/she has to find out the root cause of a particular problem and to figure out the possible solutions for these issues. The counsellor also helps people to choose the best course of action by helping him remain positive in his life and to see things more clearly and possibly from a different view-point.
Counselling is a two way process meant for guiding the right thing for anybody in life. In general, we all need counselling at a certain stage and used to search for the right person to get valuable guidance from them so that we can get the solution of a problem and succeed at every stage of life but if it provided at a right time then it will create miracles in anyone's life and student life is the best time to get it.

Guidance and counselling are important for children, and schools have a huge role in bringing out the best in children. SMART work and SMART people is need of the hour and school is the only platform where students can acquire all those skills which are essential for developing them into their best versions to survive in this competitive world for achieving success. Therefore, through the age appropriate guidance and counselling session children are given advice and awareness on how to manage and deal effectively with their personal problems, socio-emotional conflicts and how to act out smartly.
Young minds need proper guidance that will make them potent to stand in society and make a name for themselves. Counselling not only helps them to make decisions pertaining to their professional career, but it also makes them confident and mentally prepares them for societal hardships.Proper counselling and life skills sessions in school settings will help incorporate valuable lessons in their daily life and for their personality development also.
Counselling sessions at an early age opens the lines of communication making children familiar with the importance of choosing the right career. In this area, teachers and parents plays a very important role to help children for recognizing their strengths, sharpen their interests and provides them with career options to explore their dreams.
Along with academic and career development, social and personal development is also important. Students need to acquire knowledge, attitudes and interpersonal skills to set their own goals, make their own decision and take necessary decisions to achieve those goals. Children need to also know how to be a good human being.

In our Army Public School JammuCantt, we provide regular need based individual counselling sessions, group counselling sessions and career counselling sessionsespecially to the senior classes when students come face-to-face with some important decisions in their life. These are crucial years of their teenage life, so they naturally have many questions.It's important to know what they feel or think and answer their questions so that they don't find random solutions to their problems, which can get dangerous.
We also conduct parental counselling sessions.
If as parents it’s hard to give time to your children because of the busy work schedule it is highly recommended to spend quality time with your children daily, always listen to them whenever they are approaching you to talk, ask them about their life and discuss about some important issueswith them where they can be guided and counselled properly like their friends as family is the first institution where children start learning.
