FAMILY COUNSELLING CENTRE
MSSVP’s Family Counselling Centre started in 2012 with the support of the Central Social Welfare Board, New Delhi. The objective of Family Counselling Centres is to provide preventive and rehabilitative services to women and families who are victims of atrocities and family mal-adjustments through crisis intervention and systematic counselling. MSSVP’s director, Meera Shukla, is known to be a good and effective family counsellor, and has personally resolved many crises in many families that were on the verge of complete breakdown. Besides her, there are two other counsellors at the centre.
The centre provides individual counselling, group counselling, family therapy, behaviour modification therapy, environment modification therapy, marital therapy, and psychological support to the client and family members. The main agenda of this counselling centre is to resolve marital problems, and find solutions to dowry related problems.
The cases come mostly from villages and block towns in Surguja district. A case can take anywhere from 3 to 9 months. A proper file is maintained for each case. Many of these cases are sent by Police deparment, Sakhi One Stop Centre , Swadhar Grih, Childline and aanganwadi workers.
