Maitreyee Kshirsagar, Counselor, Counseling India:
Maitreyee started by volunteering in Disha, an NGO for Differently Abled children for about 2 years. She continued this journey with the help of Forum, a Self Help Program of Landmark Education (Basic, Advanced Program and 3rd Leadership Program).
While working with special needs children she developed an interest in working with the younger age group. She completed her training of “Train the Trainer” at Geniekids and worked as a facilitator for children where she discovered a whole new approach towards learning. Her tenure at Geniekids taught her, how an adult could be a mentor and facilitator without donning the role of a conventional teacher in a child’s learning journey. The different perspectives helped her to understand Children and Teens in a better a way and this led the foundation of her counseling career.
She periodically enhances her skills by undergoing training through courses and workshops like Transactional Analysis (TA101), Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Learning Difficulties with LD children & Demystifying Sexuality. Currently, she is pursuing her Masters in Psychology from Madras University.
