Psychotherapy refers to a range of treatments that can help with mental health problems, emotional challenges and some psychiatric disorders. It aims to enable patients or clients to understand their feelings, and what makes them feel positive, anxious, or depressed. This can equip them to cope with difficult situations in a more adaptive way. Psychotherapy includes Behavior therapy, Cognitive Therapy ( helps in treating PTSD), Interpersonal Therapy, Family Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy. In order for psychotherapy to work, the person must be actively engaged and work during the session as well as between sessions, by practicing new skills.
Becoming a parent changes your life completely. Not only are you responsible for taking care of your child, but guiding and educating them through life too. Many parents benefit from learning neuro linguistic programming as it helps them improve their communication techniques with their children. NLP is based on the concept that how we think and feel affects what we say and do.
We offer a range of parenting workshops that are sometime based around common day-to-day parenting challenges or challenges that are related to specific subjects that parents may be facing. For example:
- Understanding your teenage child parenting workshop
- Helping anxious children – a guide for parents
- Child and Adolescent Mental Health Issues
- Supporting depressed children parenting workshop
- Techniques for parents of children with ODD
3) CHILD AND ADOLESCENT COUNSELLING:
Children, just like adults, experience stress. Common stressors for children include school and family issues. If you notice a change in your child’s behavior (e.g., inattention, arguing, withdrawing) or emotions (e.g. depressed, angry, worried, stress) and think they may need help, child/adolescent therapy may be a good resource. Specific therapy goals are customized to meet the needs of the child and their family. The overall goal of our adolescent therapy program is to alleviate symptoms of distress; improve the child’s social and emotional resources; increase their use of effective communication skills; and strengthen family, community and peer relationships.
4) CAREER COUNSELLING AND GUIDANCE:
It is a comprehensive, developmental program designed to assist individuals in making and implementing informed educational and occupational choices.

A planned sequence of activities and experiences to achieve specific competencies such as self-appraisal, decision making, goal setting and career planning.
Parenting isn’t always always an easy job. We all experience moments of uncertainty about how to balance the needs of our various family members, teach our kids the skills they need, provide consistent discipline, and manage our children’s moods (or our own, for that matter). Individual consultation and coaching are available to parents. Seminars and workshops on specific parenting topics are also available from time to time.

Short term counseling may be between 1 and 3 sessions whereas long-term couples therapy maybe between 12 and 24 sessions.

7) MINDFULNESS BASED STRESS REDUCTION PROGRAM:
MBSR is a program that helps you learn to calm your mind and body to help you cope with illness, pain and stress. Through this program we aim to teach our clients “mindfulness” which is a focus only on things happening in the present moment. When you are mindful, you do just one thing and pay close attention to that one thing only which has proven to be a great way to reduce stress and anxiety.
8) EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE PROGRAM:
The capacity to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically is known as emotional intelligence. EQ (shorthand for emotional intelligence) is an important tool in any sphere of life, be it professional or personal. EQ makes you a better leader, a more self aware person who is capable of managing conflicts well. At work for example an employee with a higher EQ is much preferred over the one with a higher IQ.
9) NEURO LINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING ( For Children, Parents and Teachers):
In simple words, NLP is a user’s manual for the brain and using NLP is like learning hoe to become fluent in the language of your mind so that what you want from life is exactly what you get from it. NLP teaches you excellent communication both with yourself and with others. It helps you to know how to achieve your goals and get desired results.

11) PSYCHOMETRIC ASSESSMENT:
Psychometric tests are a standard and scientific method used to measure individuals’ mental capabilities and behavioural style. Psychometricians define a number of different types of tests to create a better understanding of what is being tested and the data being measured.
Following are some of the commonly defined types of psychometric tests:
- Personality. Personality tests measure unobservable psychological factors such as an individual’s attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviors in relation to others.
- Interest – Interest tests or interest inventories measure a person’s preferences and motivations, including what types of activities a person enjoys, the products he or she are most likely to purchase, and motivational factors such as things that make an individual feel happy versus neutral.
- Aptitude – Aptitude or ability tests measure an individual’s attained skill level in any number of subjects such as mathematics, reading comprehension, or problem solving. Aptitude testing is also known as educational testing.
- Intelligence – Intelligence tests are designed to measure, through a refined testing process combining various approaches to aptitude testing, a person’s innate level of intelligence.
- Achievement – Achievement tests are a form of aptitude testing that measure maximum performance of learned skills.
- Occupational – Occupational tests are a combination of aptitude and interest tests utilized in social service agencies, career counseling, high school counseling, and in recruitment and employee development.
- Behavioral – Behavioral tests are a part of personality testing used in determining why people make decisions, environmental factors that precipitate behaviors, how people react to consequences, and how they learn. They are often used in substance abuse counseling, correctional facilities and mental health centers; as well as when testing children for behavioral disorders.
- Creativity – Creativity tests use pictures, drawing and sentence completion to measure thought processes. They are used in early childhood development testing such as in preschools and kindergartens, in private counseling such as art therapy, and in school counseling in determining special needs education and giftedness.
- Neuropsychological – Neuropsychological testing includes clinical testing for an individual’s perceptions, sensory functions, cognitive functions, and motor functions.
