Mental Fitness Workshop For Teachers 

Teachers Need Principal Support!

Teachers tell their students that mindset matters. Yet teachers do not always allow themselves space to receive those same messages of reflection and self-care. During this crisis, 77% of teachers felt poor mental health was having a damaging effect on pupil mental health, and 85% said that it adversely affected the quality of lesson planning.


Counselling Corner is ready to care for the mental well-being of teachers. We suppose every school would have counselling options for teachers, who chose one of the most rewarding and impact careers. If you are willing to organize a private workshop for staffs/teachers, we’re happy to customize and it will cost 22,500 Ks.

Their answers are as candid as they are inspiring, and their variety reveals just how vast and nuanced the practice of counseling really is. Whether you’re thinking about going to a counselor or becoming one, this list will break down some great reasons why should join this training.

  • You enjoy helping people solve their problems

Clay Workshop for Parents

Are you an anxious parent? Meanwhile, you might worry about right education path for your child and later demonstrate shielding and avoidance behaviors, engage in anxious talk, start thinking of tragic events and spend an excessive amount of time researching parenting questions. If so, you are welcomed to Clay Workshop, which will reduce trauma, depression, anxiety, and tension, as well as enhance the emotional, spiritual, cognitive, and physical well-being.

To manage the parenting anxiety and to increase self-esteem, in coming 12th June from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM at the office of Counselling Corner, our counellors will provide counseling services by using clay. By doing so, it works from the right side of the brain accessing thoughts and feelings in a different way to promote healing especially related to stress, depression and trauma.

Participants will share their feeling including profound, personal experiences associated with and recent memories, grief, loss and anxiety with others. Seated in a semi-circle, each participant was presented with a lump of clay and a wooden board. Registration open!

How did we celebrate May 17

May 17 is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia (IDAHOTB.) Counselling Corner is proud to recognize and support the diversity of our members and staff, and to join in the fight against discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity. We speak up against homophobia and transphobia and never make assumptions about another person’s gender. #IDAHOT2022Myanmar
