COD'S Guidance & Counselling Message

Currently, the department is manned by Ms Goretti W. Runnoh (M.A Counselling Psychology; B.A. Counselling Psychology; Higher Dip. in Counselling Psychology). The Guidance & Counselling department helps students and staff members work on their social, psychological, family, and academic challenges mainly by discussing and exploring the causes, effects, and solutions. In carrying out their mandate, the counsellor (s) ensures confidentiality and professionalism as is expected of them by the code of ethics, the university and their professional organizations. Through Guidance and Counselling, our students and staff are prepared to handle several emerging issues both in the University and life.
