When I began the course, I began realizing slowly that I had been at the most only sympathetic at times with people and somewhere-between-passive-and-active-listener till then!

Slowly as the course helped me explore myself, people and situations, I actually began to be empathetic more and more and a listener in the true sense. I highly appreciate the fact that IGDCS course coordinator Sreedhar and my mentor Kalyani have always been accessible over the phone, ready to lend their ears for as long as I wanted them to listen to me and answer my queries, particularly whenever I felt a drop in my confidence during the practical sessions I did (as I could not meet them personally for my mobility issues owing to the distance). My mentor’s inputs, sometimes subtly-done-counseling to me, have immensely helped me analyse myself, my limitations as a counselor that changed with time and in depth the practical counseling cases of the course. The greatest learning from IGDCS has been that human beings are all good at the heart, but sometimes things do happen to them that some of them cannot deal with at times and may act in strange/unacceptable/disturbing ways. A counselor needs to accept a person as one is, help one open up and then calm down, help one analyse the disturbing situation without confusion in mind and help one think of the next step of action calmly with the assurance that the counselor is always there to listen and help. All along, the counselor too has to be ready to go for counseling and a break from counseling others if and when required. My main take away from this course is that the greatest help that can be given to a human being is the encouraging, warm feeling that a helping hand is there to hold on to when one has fallen and cannot get up immediately. The course being online and self-paced, I could pursue it, taking time off and on for self-introspection, reflection over the reading materials as well as do the practical sessions at my convenience, while giving the much-needed support to my children, particularly my very young daughter, emotionally and academically as well as during times of sickness. After all, those were very the reasons behind my quitting a dream corporate job. Completion of it module by module is being possible since it is an online course.
