A BIG RECOMMENDATION TO JOIN THE PROGRAM. It not only covers the theoretical aspect but the activities are what make it more interesting and engaging. Personally loved Radhika and Dakshita as facilitators, never a dull moment with them. Have new mentors now in the field, couldn't be happier. Being the first batch, I can assure that I had a more than satisfactory experience.


A lot of perspectives are covered and the approaches too. Gives you a space to learn and grow and deal with what actually happens when you are sitting as a therapist
