The course as a whole is delivered in a very clear and interesting manner.

Really enjoyed each and every module. It was very informative and balanced not an over load. My experience with Banjara course has been a significantly positive. I am passionate about the counselling and have been looking for a professional course which can guide me to understand the process and find out if what I am doing is right or wrong. Due to lack of time and travelling distance, it would have been impossible for me to do a regular course and this being online was a boon for me. The course structure is simple to understand and learn on our own. Videos, audio lessons and text are comfortable to access and navigation is very easy. Mentors and admin staff have been very supportive. My health conditions and work requirements did not allow me to space my learning but every one for supportive. Doing the course has definitely changed my perspectives • I was counselling students and parents for more than a decade now. I now feel that what I was doing was not scientific at all and most of the times; I would be directive or suggest something which is what was expected of me. Though I did have rapport building and probing and making the child / parent open up by asking open ended questions or giving examples that make it easy for them to share their feelings, I would end up telling them what could be good for them. • I have gained confidence that I would be able to use the skills effectively and I can counsel my teachers / students / parents or any one with my new skills. • I have realized that counselling is not solving problems for others and I do not have to feel guilty if the problem is not solved completely due to different reasons. I have become an active listener and give an opportunity to my counselee to talk more than what I do. • I definitely was emotional and judgmental. I used to push my values on my students many of the times. Now I feel that it is a blunder. • I have learned to give a very nice way of giving feedback. My mentor Kalyani has been very open about saying what I have not done right in a very positive way which makes me sit up and say “Hey I need to work on my thought process”. Her way of hand-holding and explaining where I went wrong is amazing. I have always been looking forward for her feedback because it makes me feel so good. • Online mode was very good and we could download the material both in text and voice which was amazing. I did find that outlook configuration was a little difficult for me (one off cases) and I started communicating with my registered mail id. Mr Sreedhar and Ms Vasantha supported by responding on the same. The overall experience is amazing and I definitely feel that I am in a better position to understand people and help them. I feel that it is absolutely necessary for every educator to do this course as it transforms the way we think. Thanks so much for the opportunity.
