Mental health is grossly neglected and overlooked by most people. But how could things change for the good? The same curiosity led founders, Shivam Dixit and Bobby Thakur to start Counsel India as an NGO back in 2016. At its nascent stage, Counsel India covered 100+ villages, govt. schools, remand homes, juvenile homes and orphanages to spread awareness regarding the importance of mental health and conducted counselling sessions for them. Soon they realized that there was so much in this field to work upon and fix. The taboo around the subject had to be broken. The problems seemed to be way more than the people who could help you with them. So, they jumped right on the opportunity to take the charge.
We introduced a 21-day program, Mind Power Training (MPT) as our first product which focused on helping people build a belief system that encourages them to grow internally, especially when challenges are many. We were persistent with our efforts to maximize our reach in that space. By 2018, we had reached to 8+ colleges & universities and 15+ corporates with our MBT product. It was a huge success!
Inspired with this initial success, we started conducting talk shows, seminars, stand-ups and group interactions to get people listen to us about mental health and psychology. Through our interactions with students and working professionals from different settings, we learned the need for career and personal counseling. We started a systematic detailed analysis that could help them identify their key skills and land them growing career paths.
As we couldn’t be there for everyone who needed us, so we decided to train individuals who could offer counseling services to masses. We incorporated as a private limited company in 2020 and streamlined the business model. We started training aspirants on practical psychology and counselling skills. We got the key accreditations, and started launching courses in psychology that were in demand. Starting from our flagship course, Counseling Master Course, we designed and launched courses on the other topics, like Child Psychology, Counselling Therapy, Internships and Diploma Courses one after another, changing the learning landscape of psychology in India.
Our thriving enthusiasm was put to the test during Covid when the whole world succumbed to its backlash. It was apparent that the world moved online, and so did we! We took this as an opportunity to connect with more people by delivering our courses online. Counsel India’s practical courses were now accessible to people all over India and outside the country as well. We helped our learners to become self-reliant by providing support in establishing their own counselling practice. This made Counsel India the first psychology ed-tech company to add entrepreneurship in the course curriculum.
By 2022, Counsel India has grown and scaled to newer heights with a thriving community of 100,000+ learners from 15+ countries, 10,000+ successful alumni and 1 million+ reach on social platforms and still counting.
In 2023, as we stand today, we are expanding our reach and offerings by launching our own web and mobile platforms. Our future holds more milestones to get past, more offline branches to open and most importantly, ensure our customers have a secure and thriving future in the psychology field.

Our mission is to help people become stronger and healthier at emotional level by training counsellors at large scale and offering access to personal counselling through our Global Network of Counsellors and Psychologists. We strive to offer quality programs and courses in psychology and counselling skills via most affordable and accessible technology.
All our trainers and mentors are field psychologists, meaning they are actively practicing their profession and bringing rich knowledge and experience to the table. “Learning by doing” is what we stand by. Project-based learning and “Ask me anything” sessions are unique to our courses.
We don’t just believe in recorded video lessons. Learning is more fun and engaging with interactive video lessons, where can we can connect and grow together.
Psychologists make great observers and motivators but some fall short of doing the same for themselves. Counsel India is the only platform that provides entrepreneurship training for self-branding and marketing along with course content. We ensure a holistic support for our future counsellors to establish their practices.
Job updates, mock interviews, resume building, guidance on career choice, you name it and we have it! We ensure all round support to secure a placement in the field of your choice in psychology.
