Peer Counselling

Peer counselling is a non-professional, co-counselling technique aimed at helping those with similar personal problems and backgrounds to get together and discuss their experiences. It is designed to motivate and liberate persons with disabilities to believe in themselves and make their own decisions confidently.

Experienced CIL-Kathmandu staff assess individual needs and provide different services and information. Acceptance and positive thinking are prime focuses of peer counselling. Peer counseling encourages individuals to explore their own personal capacities and the life skills required to live independently. It also plays a pivotal role in empowering people with disabilities to achieve their goals in life and not be overwhelmed by the social and physical barriers they face on a daily basis.
