Counseling Centre


NIP has been involved in various activities that were aimed at promoting mental health and psychological well-being. One of such activities is the initiative to have a counseling centre for students of NIP, Quaid-i-Azam University, and general people from Islamabad/ Rawalpindi. The aim of this centre is to help individuals understand their problem through a different perspective and learn different strategies to resolve them. It focuses on helping the individuals in crises and supports them to think clearly and resolve their problem in a productive manner. While a counselor/therapist cannot solve others’ problems for them but he can facilitate the process of going into the depth of the problem and learning healthy skills to manage the issue in a fruitful way.


Appointments Clients can book their counseling session appointment through website, email, telephone or through visiting clinic (QAU-NIP Counseling Centre). Appointments will be scheduled as soon as possible, as per availability. Online appointments can be scheduled as well.  NIP Counseling Centre is open from Monday to Friday from 9AM to 3PM. For appointment, register through website, email us at or contact us at +92 333 5932537




Counseling and therapy provided is highly confidential. Because therapy is most effective when a student can be direct and honest with a counselor without fear that personal information will be divulged, the counseling centre does not release information about any client/ individual without that client’s written permission, except in the case of imminent danger to self or others, child/dependent abuse, court order, or where otherwise required by law.
