I am glad and thankful for having had the opportunity to do my International Graduate Diploma in Counseling Skills (IGDCS) course at Banjara.

Initially I was very apprehensive about an online course as it was a new experience of learning. When I met Sreedhar about this he answered all my queries I had in mind and convinced me to take up the course. His support has been the same through my journey at Banjara and I am very grateful to him. My special thanks goes to my mentor Ms. Sheena Arora. She has an eye for details and her feedback even at times when being critical is very genuine and motivational. Most of the times I feel so positive reading her feedback that I naturally tend to share it with my spouse and siblings. My special thanks also goes to Dr. Ali Khwaja and his entire team at Banjara for all their support. In the past I used to be very judgmental when meeting people, but now I do not bring any judgments while meeting people. I have learnt the counseling parlance and frameworks and honed my counseling skills. The course has helped me in becoming emotionally gentler. The course has taught me to be a non-judgmental, non-directive, and an active listener. This course has made me to accept everyone unconditionally. I have become more aware of my feelings and hence find it better to deal with situations now than before and this has boosted my self confidence. The assignments are all well planned and require proper preparation. My practical report work at Victoria Hospital was the icing on the cake since it helped me reflect on all the theoretical concepts learnt in a practical set-up. I wish there was more support from Banjara in creating placement opportunities. Also it would be good to have a platform for alumni to come together and interact, to explore entrepreneurship opportunities and also for continuous learning. The backend technology infrastructure is very good, I did not have a problem in accessing the website even once.
