Help - Counselors Help - Counselors


Counseling is a lot like going to the gym, beautician and doctor regularly, because our mind also needs the same amount of care and pampering as our body. Counseling can empower you and help you achieve your goals, and have more fulfilling relationships as well as better health too. So it can lead to improvement in all areas of life.

Counseling is for everybody. Every human being has a basic right to have access to a trained professional who can help us in our overall growth and wellbeing. Even Counselors need counselling! Therefore anybody with a willingness to explore any area of life can benefit from meeting a Counselor. 

No, this is an inaccurate understanding of the role of Counselors. Counselors are NOT problem solvers; rather they are professionals trained with skills and competencies that facilitate an individual to gain awareness, growth and transformation through a warm & understanding relationship. There is no magic solution or specific advice. Every individual and their life situation is unique and therefore there can never be a ‘one size fits all’ solution. 

In our experience, after Counseling, people have shared that they “feel lighter”, “gain clarity”, “learn more about themselves and others”, “feel less stuck or overwhelmed”, “feel energized”, “feel good, positive and hopeful”, “take decisions and actions”, “see positive changes”, “improve relationships” and so on. This is often possible because the Counselor is neutral and objective while working with you. 

Since Counseling is misunderstood in our country, it is valid to ask this question. However, we hope to educate the general public and create awareness about what Counseling truly is, so that the stigma attached to it may go away. We dream of a day where people see Counseling in a positive light, as a way to enhance their personal growth and wellbeing.

You can talk about your feelings, emotions, problems – almost anything under the hat without the fear of being judged. You can discuss any of your problems related to relationships, marriage, stress, anger, parenting, etc and our trained Counselors will help you.

Every Counselor is different, and the types of questions depend on your individual counseling goals. Most Counselors will ask questions about your thoughts and feelings. They will also ask you about the critical parts of your life: your relationships, school, work, and health. If Counselors are unsure about your goals from Counseling, they’ll likely ask questions to gain clarity. 

Some people begin to feel better as soon as they make their interaction or at the time of their first session. There can be a sense of relief when you make the commitment to address an issue that is problematic.
