We offer many wonderful programs and services that are beneficial to different age groups. Just take glance at it and what you can expect from each one-
- Psychological Counselling– This type of counselling is a complete scientific approach, where counselling relationship is critical to the success of counselling. There are various different skills, tools and techniques used in counselling, which helps clients in achieving positive mental health, resolves emotional, psychological, relationship issues, improve personal effectiveness, empower and enhance skills set etc.Inculcating self-help skills and progressive mindset, giving clarity OR mirroring of reality can be some of the basic goals of counselling process. Depending on the severity of the issue or problem area, number of sessions will be decided. Sometimes , if required along with Individual sessions with the client for his/her issues, family counselling, couple counselling or group counselling process can be involved to increase efficiency of counselling and it is seen that involving family proves very beneficial most of the times, because in that process family’s understanding, awareness can be initiated for the client’s issue so that they all can help the client to empower his/ her skills to work with issue with positivity. This support is very much required.
- Psychotherapy – As American Psychiatric Association stated- “Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, is a way to help people with a broad variety of mental illnesses and emotional difficulties. Psychotherapy can help eliminate or control troubling symptoms so a person can function better and can increase well-being and healing.” There are many different forms of psychotherapies and their various tools and applications. Role of a psychotherapist is to choose appropriate psychotherapy for a client’s issue, which will help him the best. Specialty of our center is, we use eclectic approach here, that means, We design the most suitable therapeutic approach for a client’s issue in each session, which will provide him/her excellent self-help skill set, better options to tackle issues and empowerment to handle weaknesses. Here follow-up of the previous session and revision of self-help tasks given in each session will be done to check how much those tasks and thinking approaches are helping the client.
We use various psycho-therapeutic approaches as per need of client such as – Cognitive Behavior Therapy ( Aron Beck), Client centered Approach ( Carl Rogers), Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy( Albert Ellis), Behavior therapy ( various modules and techniques developed by many experts, but mostly known- B.F. Skinner), Play therapy for children up to age 12 years( Virginia Axline) etc. Each therapy approach has its speciality , benefits and unique objectives with specially designed scientific tools, which in psychotherapy sessions we maximize for clients’ well being achievement.
( our speciality is we offer phone or online sessions too and these are proving very helpful, beneficial and efficient in this lockdown, pandemic situation and especially it is helping to maintain social distancing, yet not missing the recovery process.)
- Bach Flower Remedies–
I am a Bach center registered practitioner( London- bachcentre.com) and practising these remedies from Year 2000. These remedies are proven treatment for emotional skill enhancement and complete emotional well being without any side effect. These are non habit forming so they do not create dependency. There are 38 remedies in the Bach remedy system. All of them were discovered in the 1920s and 1930s by Dr Edward Bach, a well-known bacteriologist, physician, and pathologist.
Each remedy is associated with a basic human emotion.Like Dr. Bach believed that healing on an emotional level has knock-on effects on other levels. A healthy emotional life and a balanced personality will allow your body to find its own natural state of health.
These remedies work very well in combination with counselling and psychotherapy processes, it doubles the effect of therapy and reduces the duration of sessions, as these remedies work on emotional imbalances very well simultaneously , through counselling and psychotherapy we work on thoughts and behaviour patterns.Client’s willingness to bring positive and progressive change in his/her life,makes this process wholesome and complete.
4. Other programs – Apart from above services, we arrange many workshops, and seminars (and in current situation – webinars and online courses too) in our center. Such as- Youth Leadership Program ( YLP), parenting workshops for inculcating awareness and techniques of healthy -happy parenting, self- awareness workshops, especially for middle age ladies, skills enhancement programs for children and youths etc.
5.Upcoming courses- we are in process to launch brand new certificate courses in child development and counselling, personality development and leadership (for adults), communication skill enhancement (for youth and adults.), Interview skills ( for fresh grads).
We are committed to mental wellness and complete well being of our clients. We maintain the highest standards and ethics of confidentiality in our center.
