Diploma in Personal Counselling Skills-2011 Convocation Report

At last the let-go day of DPCS-2011 came on 15 Aug 2011. The occasion was a mix of bloom for the togetherness and gloom for separation. Each one was a proud certified counsellor ready to take a plunge into the sea of sadness with a life jacket for the distressed masses. Their extended helping hands are ready to hold the one in despair.

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
