- Mani Mozhi (Child Counsellor)

My deep interest in psychology and mental health counseling and an urge to serve society interested me in doing this advanced counseling course with Savio DSilva. This course would also help me develop personally from my career point of view therefore I made my decision of doing this course and I feel I have taken the right decision. When I went through the course catalog and viewed the topics on site, my passion for this course grew even further. I also found it convenient because I could study after work hours living in another country. I joined this course in February and am proud to be a part of it. It gives me inner peace and is developing my skills, knowledge and expertize. I am applying my learned knowledge in practical situations at work. I am able to transform lives and that is the best part of doing this course.

From day one that I begun this course, I am enjoying every bit of it. This course offers challenges at every step. The course topics, in-depth knowledge provided, advanced course materials, e-books, books, videos, forums all this is made available by Mr.Savio at a center point; such privileges are difficult to find even at Universities. Frankly speaking, I did not enjoy my masters as much as I am enjoying this course. We interact daily, on the forums with peers and begin caring for each other. Slowly I feel like I am being molded into a professional counselor and this is the strength of this course. In this course I learned to meet deadlines, research and my writings are published. This course has not only developed my writing skills and my expertise in the subject but has raised my confidence level. When I answer a query I analyze the situation and provide solutions based on theory and experience. When I find that my solution has been able to help someone the satisfaction I gain raises my motivational level and I feel like putting in more efforts. I receive constructive feedback from Mr.Savio and I respect his straightforwardness. His encouragement makes me feel good about myself. This has been a lifelong learning experience for me. I thank Mr.Savio for making this a wonderful experience for me and for all those enrolled under him.
- Juliet Coutinho (University Counselor)

"I have been attached to this course since the past 10 months and believe me I still feel I am a new student in the sense that everyday there is something new to learn and experience. It is a wonderful course, the entire credit of which goes to Mr. Savio DSilva, who is always open to new ideas, experimenting and implementing innovative ways to make the course more interesting. If you are sincere and regular in answering the online queries and in completing your assignments then there is nothing to stop you from becoming a good counselor. Should you have any problem, Mr. D'Silva is a very, very helpful teacher and guide and of course, we are always there to assist you. All the best!"
- Mridu Rathi (NGO Owner)

The main reason why I joined this course was my interest in helping others from their problems. Besides this being a homeopath, psychology plays a vital role in practicing homeopathic medicine. I always felt that I should reach out to people and help them solve their problems. My vision before joining the course was to open an addiction clinic for smokers and alcoholics and a counseling clinic for children as child health is my specialization. After joining this course I got to broaden my view of thoughts. Each day I get to enrich my thoughts and learn something new. I have attempted topics which are completely out of my knowledge but with research and enthusiasm to do it I could complete it nicely. I can tackle my own emotions at times and it has benefited me on personal level as well. I can think more rationally and from all perspectives when in crises. A mentor like Savio DSilva is thoroughly a blessing for all of us. He has been there for us and truly spoon fed us on all occasions. By joining him our articles have gained international exposure and will be there on Google for years to come. My heartfelt thanks to you sir. I will keep giving my best to the course and to you in the future as well.
Thanks and regards,
Dr. Ankita Marjadi (Expert Counselor).

Knowledge seems to have no boundaries and I have reached to a basic milestone and would want to travel with the course as far as possible.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Savio DSilva for the wonderful training in counseling. I have learned so much in the past couple of months and also learning as the course takes it.

After a lot of research that I did in the internet, I zeroed in on Savio DSilva's course, as it does not require personal contact sessions and the rating it has, I have been working as a Home Based Medical Transcription Expert and extending to my passion has been a good journey so far.

- Anju Kapoor (Child Counselor)

Since I graduated as a nurse I had a thirst in specializing in the field of counseling after seeing a lot of mentally affected patients in hospitals and my best subject was psychiatry. Since then I had been searching through various websites, finally I happened to see this site and went through it and liked it. I enrolled myself into Savio DSilva's course, I am on the verge of finishing it. As it is said 'with great power comes great responsibility'. Skills of counseling must be used to the right people. Right time and right place.

So whoever has plans to do this course you are not late you are with the right person at the right time and right place..
1. The general course schedule and course flow is good.
2. The contents are vast, in depth and valid.
3. The articles, tips, lessons and topics are excellent.
4. Best books on related topics are from best authors.
5. Online assignments cover most related articles sent earlier.
6. Counseling problems very much related to day to day problems in each one's life.
As it is the best ranked counselor in India, Mr.Savio, is a good mentor, motivator, teacher and counselor.
- Mariamma Jose (Top Nurse & Expert Counselor)

I have joined this course to become a counselor. It has been my objective since I passed out my std. 10. and needed practical exposure to the field, which I am getting from this course. I like listening to people and it gives me immense pleasure when I am able to help them out. I have worked in organizations where I have felt the gap which needs to be filled in by professionals. This course is helping me to be eligible to fill in that gap. After joining this course, I was first overwhelmed by the material provided to us. The eBooks and other material have been of great use to me to understand this field better. I can relate in a better way with people and their problems, by actually being able to put myself in their shoes to solve their queries. But most importantly, I have become much more patient while dealing with things in my own life. I can rationalize with people and situations in a better way. This course has also made me learn to accept criticism gracefully, to work in teams, and at times even to work under pressure, without letting the deadlines take a toll on me. I have also improved on my communication skills both verbal and non verbal. And I hope by the time I finish this course, there will be a lot more that I would have learned.
- Akshaya Kawle (Human Resources Management / Counsellor).

My aim to join this course was to reach out to maximum number of needy people and help them with their problems related to life. I always look forward to encourage and motivate people to face and brace their lives irrespective of the age groups they belong to. To give a lending ear and a strong shoulder to share and care for their burdens to unload with an aim to cure them of their miseries of any kind. After joining this course I have gained a vast knowledge of all spheres of life. Counseling though has been the aim of this course i would like to submit that apart from that it teaches you how to work systematically. How to communicate relying only on posts. How to share responsibilities and work to achieve your goals as a team. Meeting deadlines both at short and long time of notice. Adhering to rules and making sure of a disciplined aptitude and attitude towards work. This sure shows communication indeed is the key to all our problems. Being their for your colleagues and helping them in their hour of need, like many of our friends have set an example on this forum. This course teaches as both leadership qualities and skills both at counseling & communicating. So far a very challenging, enriching and learned experience is what i have had. And looking forward for much more in the months to come. Thank You Savio Sir for all the able guidance.
