Starting off as a christian based non-for profit independent educational charity organization in 2010. The Institute of Counseling has been in the fore-front of making impact in the society, considering the role that counseling plays in shaping the society as a whole. Almost every area of counseling is either undeveloped or non-existence in Nigeria, a situation that should be treated as emergency considering the alarming rate of violence, depression, poverty and mental health issues in the society.
Institute of counseling has been a trailblazer in making sure the society gets the needed support in the area of counseling, we ride on partnership with both local and international bodies to achieve the enormous task of having a sane society in an environment where everything seems to be upside down.

SUPPORTING WORLD MENSTRUAL HYGIENE DAY
It was a sight to behold as World Menstrual Hygiene Day supported by the Institute of Counseling in Nigeria, ICN, extended its arms of love to Female staff and students of Child’s Will High School, Surulere, Lagos.
Popular Sex Therapist, Relationship and Marriage Counselor, Dr. Tolulope Oko-Igaire (a.k.a THE FIXER) who was the guest speaker, enlightened the female students on; WORLD MENSTRUAL HYGIENE DAY, The Girl Child, Menstruation, Ways to maintain a proper hygiene when menstruating, Practical way to use a pad, shared personal experiences and entertained questions.
There were slogans which were learned among which included:
“Menstruation or no Menstruation, Life goes on.” This encouraged the students that irrespective of the pains, anxiety and sometimes shyness they go through on their period days, they should learn to be bold, positive, beautiful and outspoken. Menstruation should never make them feel inferior.
” Girls run the world.” The girls were encouraged to influence their world because women are a GREAT INFLUENCE, generally unstoppable, achieving whatever they dream of.”
Joyland pads were shared to the girls and were greeted with appreciation. The atmosphere was filled with fun, laughter, songs, pictures and affiliating with teachers and students afterwards. The students and staff of ICN had a memorable time together.
