Most of the children we rescue can be handled by our experienced staff. There is no need for professional counselors in such cases.However, we do have some tie up of professionals / doctors with whom we consult or refer some cases to.
Most of the professionals have been kind enough to offer help free of cost. But a very few cases get referred to them.

The counselor may require several sessions with the parents and the child. If the child is from out of town then the families are rarely able to follow up the counseling.We have invited the professional counselors to visit our shelter homes. Some of them spend 4-5 hours every week.When the family situation is more complicated then there is more intensive counseling. For instance, if the mother is involved in an extra marital affair and the child feels ‘betrayed’. In such cases the child is not repatriated till proper counseling has been given.

The list of such tie up professionals and counselors are given below:
