Banjara-Seva Video Talks Series on Basic Counselling Skills

How can I be a good counsellor, also, a happier, better, more understanding person?

Dr Ali Khwaja shares with you his over 20 years experience of reaching out to people as a psychological counsellor


We are delighted to present a series of video talks by Dr Ali Khwaja on empathy, listening, etc. for improving yourself or reaching out as counsellors. Seva, a voluntary organization offering free counselling services in Hyderabad, had invited Ali there to give these talks in September 2011.
To learning, sharpen the skill of good listening - listen with not only your ears but also your mind, your eyes. Dr Ali Khwaja answers your questions: Is listening really a skill? How does being a good listener help me? He shows how listening helps people around you connect to you, talk to you, share with you what they know, how they feel. Listening thus enables you to understand people better and reach out to them as a more caring, loving, understanding human being.
