"Since philosophy has always been my first love, I decided to study philosophy at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Sarajevo. I remember that period as the happiest in my life. When I finished my studies and entered into the real world in Bosnia and Herzegovina I realised that what I gained through my philosophy studies wasn't enough for me due to lack of practical approach to study philosophy in my country. I decided to start with my postgraduate studies in the field of sociology. But, philosophy still remained my first and only love. I read philosophy books and everything related while I was working in NGO sector and developing new practical social skills.
After many years, I saw a Facebook page called philosophy in practice and then another page called philosophical counselling and my inquiry for the best course in philosophical counselling had started. My internet research lead me to the Gabinete Project. As it seemed to me as the best option I sent my letter of interest and CV. Soon after I was enrolled in the level I course of Philosophical Counselling.
Dr Dias sent me the Facebook request and added me to the group where all candidates have opportunity to share their opinions and other information. I was delighted by his approach since I didn't get used to it here in Bosnia. I had opportunity to contact him any time and he was very patient and professional. Thanks to his encouraging approach I decided to continue with the course.
What I liked the most is methodology based on individual approach which gives me the opportunity to organize my time in order to make an attempt to give my best. At first, I didn't really know what to expect, but after the first evaluation I was pretty sure that I am on a right track. I am grateful for this opportunity to develop practical skills in the field of philosophy and looking forward to taking active participation in the next level."
