FAMILY OF CERTIFIED TAP’s

I am so proud to share with you that a family from India have just been awarded their TAP certificates by USATAA. Dr. Rajan Bhonsle, M.D; Dr Minnu Bhonsle, Ph.D; and Aman Bhonsle, MBA of Mumbai, India are likely the first family unit in Asia to comprise members who are all certified TAPs. It is a significant achievement not only for the Bhonsle family, but a significant development for the TA community in Asia. They shared that they are excited to apply their newly-acquired TA competencies by providing counselling services and workshops at the Heart to Heart Counselling Centre in Mumbai.

To acquire TAP certification, the Bhonsle family flew to Singapore a total of 6 times to attend TAP training by Dr Jessica Leong, TAPI, TSTA.The Bhonsle family requested to share the following feedback on their learning journey in Singapore —“It was a sheer delight to update our TA knowledge and train in Singapore. Dr. Jessica Leong has a penchant for perfection, a passion for detail, unrelenting stamina and a robust sense of humour. We benefited from her rich knowledge, enthusiasm, and professional experience. We are grateful to have learned so much from her in our 6 visits to Singapore from India in the last 16 months. Being trainers in various counselling modalities and consulting counsellors ourselves for almost 3 decades in India, we are pleased to have met her and to have learned so much of value from her.”  -Dr. Rajan Bhonsle, M.D
