Dr. Andreea Szilagyi

NBCC-I’s first CIR was Andreea Szilagyi from Romania. She is now Vice President of both NBCC International and the European Board for Certified Counselors. She is widely recognized as one of the first counselor educators in Eastern Europe and helped establish the first counseling master's program in Romania. As a Romanian counselor and counselor educator, she was exposed to a global view of counseling during her CIR appointment with NBCC-I from August 2003 to July 2004. The experience inspired her to organize the first international career counseling conference in Romania, where the GCDF program was first presented to Romanian professionals, and motivated her to introduce the concept of supervised internship to the master’s degree she had designed previously. Dr. Szilagyi is witness to the growth and expansion of NBCC-I. In her words, her time as a CIR “was a rare moment and a unique learning experience for me.”
