I found the course comprehensive and different from others in that it was a blend of theory as well as a very practical approach to counselling.

The case studies and assignments were unique in that they were not theory-based, requiring me to just by-heart and regurgitate what I had learnt. They required me to flex my thinking muscles a lot, ruminate and introspect on what I had learnt through the course, as well as my own life experience and values, and apply all of these in my answers. Through the course, I learnt that every human being, even the ones who seem to have it all, will still be having some tension or stress or the other. The myriad problems that a single human being can go through is mindboggling! It also made me think through my life, the decisions I made, the relationships I have, and see if I could have done anything differently. At the same time, I am also now able to look at my past self with understanding and compassion and accept that I was only doing what I knew at that point in time. I also am able to look at others without judgement in the same way. The mentoring system gave me a whole lot of extra knowledge, information, and insight. I can say that the mentoring system was as useful to me as the course material in understanding this field. My mentor, Abhishek Ghosh, always gave feedback that developed the ideas and concepts in the modules in a deeper way. Also, the feedback given always made me feel more confident about myself while giving me new things to think about and ways in which I could do things differently. I am also thankful to my mentor for creating a space where I felt safe and comfortable in opening up about myself without the fear of being judged and I never was The support from Sreedhar and Vasantha was always timely and helpful. The audios and videos included in the modules helped to liven up the otherwise only text-based modules. Overall, I am very happy with the course and the way it has been put together. Thank you all very much!
