Peer Counsellors are a group of students recruited and trained by Kisii University College to counsel their peers.
They are trained in and are knowledgeable about, Family Life Education, Counselling Skills and HIV / AIDS and STIs (Sexually Transmitted Infections). As a result of their training and experience, Peer Counsellors are often more highly sensitised to the needs of those around them and can respond more appropriately to those needs.
Peer Counsellors are trained to counsel on a wide range of issues including: relationship concerns, sexual harassment, rapes, unplanned pregnancies, stress, financial and time management, room-mate problems, academic problems, religious issues, alcohol and drugs abuse.
Peer Counsellors can also help student's acclimatise and adjust to the new University College environment. Peer Counsellors are always near them in the Residential Halls, Lecture and Dining Halls and around Campus.
