M.A.(Sociology), Dip(MR); Special Educator, Bangalore, India
My journey as a counselling student from Banjara was very enriching.
I have come closer to understanding human behavior through a different perception,i.e. see things from the other person's perspective. It has helped me to understand not only myself better but also the people around me. I am able to empathize with people without being judgmental now, and it has become easier for me make connections with people. The online classes were exciting too, as I would wait for the interesting and simple lessons and the feedback, specially, by my mentor which was so encouraging. The only aspect which could be added, I wish, is more of audio-visual practical classes of counselling sessions. The International Graduate Diploma in Counselling Skills (IGDCS) course has made me revitalize my emotional connections,and appreciate the differences in human experience. Thank you, Asha (my mentor), for getting me through this wonderful journey of human behavior which is so important to understand for one's peaceful existence in this world.
