The course has been very useful. It has changed my perspective about Counseling.

Earlier, I had thought that to be effective, you need to give some advice! It has helped in making my interactions with family, friends and others so much more effective and satisfying. I am able to connect to them so much more. I am able to understand them more, accept them more. I am able to ask the right kind of questions in the right way and respond to them in the right way. I am able to carry silences much more easily, and am much more accepting. Thank you for the course! There are many take aways. · I learnt the skills of counseling, about active listening and empathizing, and refraining from advice, about positive strokes. · The important questions: o What are you thinking? o What are you feeling? o What are you feeling in your body? · Why non-directive skills are useful, and when to be directive · The three phases of counseling · Techniques of questioning · List of books and resources · And much more… My mentor was very encouraging and provided useful feedback for my learning. She also gave lots of positive strokes. In fact, from her, I learnt the art of giving constructive feedback in the right way with lots of encouragement and positive strokes, while at the same time communicating the areas for improvement. Thank you Rekha! The coordinator Sreedhar did an excellent job by being available and supporting. Once when I was really lagging behind with my assignments, I was feeling a bit discouraged, and he gave me a positive stroke about my habit of reading a lot (books, resources) and hence taking more time to complete modules, and it really perked me up. Thank you Sreedhar! I am glad that there was an online course that I could do from home. I could practice the skills with friends, family and others that I met. The 5 day contact workshop was very useful and experiential. Because I have a young daughter at home, the classroom course would not have been possible. So, I am very glad that there was an online one. Thank you!
