Our program provides a robust counselling education. ADI offers explicit introduction to Psychosocial counselling, Clinical counselling, Biblical Counselling and Workplace/ Organizational Counselling.Our students are exposed to whatcounselling is, its various forms, approaches and technicalities. As students continue in the program, they are able to explore specific topics (for example: marriage, children and adolescents, addictions, depression, anxiety, etc.) in a deeper and more comprehensive way.
ADI is registered as a counselling and educational service with Cooperate Affairs Commission, Nigeria and presently processing its approval and accreditation from the Federal Ministry of Education.
