My journey into the International Graduate Diploma in Counselling Skills (IGDCS) course was undertaken more with a quest for self-exploration but it provided me with a much deeper insight into Life in general.

The core essentials of counseling, viz. listening, being non-biased, not judging people and empathizing were clearly defined and reiterated from time to time both in our study material and by our Mentor as well. The best part of the material was that it was in clear and lucid language which makes it effortless for one and all to comprehend. Of course, I feel that we should go through this material as and when required so as to refresh our learning which in turn will lead us to becoming better counselors. The concept that, ”One size does not fit all” has also been emphasized which means that different people behave differently given the same situation, so each case needs to be dealt with in a careful and sensitive manner. Confidentiality is another aspect which ought to be kept in mind and practiced religiously by us.

Non-directive counseling is an excellent way to start off as it involves more of listening and empathizing and not giving advice but in fact empowering the counselees to take their own decisions. My experience of the IGDCS course was indeed an enriching one because besides the fact that it delivered the theoretical knowledge, it also made me go out of my comfort zone, especially while doing assignments where I had to approach others and get their feedback. That was challenging and left me feeling satisfied and confident as well. The coordinator Sreedhar was always there to help and is an Asset to the Banjara team. A special thanks to him as well as my mentor Asha Anand for being a valuable pillar of support throughout this intriguing voyage. I hope more and more people can take up this course since it offers study at your own pace and will help people enhance their relationships as well as understanding of human behavior which will aid in making this world a Happier and more Peaceful place.
Thank you, Banjara!
A degree from you is nothing less than a ‘Tiara’!
