We all occasionally feel sad, low, or anxious, but as time passes, these feelings pass within a certain time. But few symptoms like feelings of anxiety, sadness, loneliness, worthlessness, restlessness, fatigue, irritability, loss of interest in life, thoughts of suicide, persistent pain and agony doesn't go with time or keep coming back. All these symptoms interfere with daily life. That is when the individual comes in for counseling sessions.
These sessions aim to build an authentic relationship between the individual and counsellor, whereby the individual feels empowered to tackle various problems of his/her life of the past, present or future. These sessions are a journey for the individual to know his/her thoughts, actions and feelings – the only way by which he/she can begin to understand others and the world at large.
Relationship counseling involves three areas Premarital Counseling, Couples and Marriage Counseling and Family Counseling. The relationship gives a sense of belonging, stability, security, and responsibility. It brings along with its care, love, togetherness, support, expectations, perseverance and a very important unflinching devotion. But these days, one complaint of lack of compatibility, understanding, support, infidelity, and the list is endless. The fact is that we are under much greater stress these days. Our work, family and changing society demands a lot from us. One of the necessities of any relationship is "communication". We help both the partners to have healthy communication.
Diagnostic Testing and Assessment
For children, adolescents, and adults, we conduct a variety of assessments. Our services include IQ, Evaluation of ADHD, Assessments of learning disabilities, Personality, Psycho-educational assessment for children, and Emotional-social problems. Testing involves the use of formal tests such as questionnaires or checklists. These are often referred to as norm-referenced tests. That simply means the tests have been standardized so that test-takers are evaluated in a similar way, no matter where they live or who administers the test. A norm-referenced test of a child’s reading abilities, for example, may rank that child’s ability compared to other children of similar age or grade level. Norm-referenced tests have been developed and evaluated by researchers and have proven to be effective for measuring a particular trait or disorder.
The adolescent years are possibly the most difficult years in a person’s life. Along with the physical changes that bring so much of turmoil, there are major emotional and psychological changes happening simultaneously. He/she ends up feeling misunderstood, discounted, unloved and may either turn rebellious or withdrawn. We offer counseling services for Concentration, commitment, persistence,
Exam anxiety, Time management, Decision-making and Problem-Solving, Study Skills & Habits: Memory Techniques, Feeling helpless, withdrawal, guilt or worthlessness, low self-esteem, rejection, Relationship with peers, Substance abuse, Difficulty with authority, Suicidal thoughts or actions, and Sex education.
Parenting can be a happy and stressful experience. Parenting coaching helps in educating and supporting mothers and fathers during this important attachment process and assists the family in the new adjustments. It has been said that parenting is the most difficult job and the most important responsibility you will ever have in your life. Unfortunately, you receive little or no formal training in parenting. Usually, we either do what our parents did or we do the exact opposite, depending on our opinion of the parenting we received. Parenting skills training can improve your confidence in your parenting ability as this is the most important job you will ever have.
Children are impressionable and sensitive. They need guidance and mentorship to develop into a successful and well-rounded person. They have unique needs and hence require specialized services and techniques that can meet them. We offer counseling services for Behavioural Issues - Aggression, Bullying, Fear, Food and Diet-related Issues. Emotional Issues- Sibling Rivalry, Stress, Anger, Interpersonal Relationship Issues, Depression, Anxiety, Grief Counseling and Remedial Counseling for Learning difficulties, ADHD.
Anger is often the outcome of our unsatisfied desires and expectations. Non Fulfillment of desires and expectations lead to anger. It is not any outside element that makes us angry. The element that makes us angry is within us. If we can understand that anger is the by-product of our way of thinking, we can control it. The basic idea of controlling anger is to understand your belief system. By Counseling, we infuse the understanding your belief system, positive thoughts and attitude.
Online counseling is a great way to get the professional help of a therapist to work on your difficulties, even when you physically cannot be present for a one-on-one counseling session. Perhaps you are a few hundred kilometres away or perhaps even a continent away, your distance does not stop you from choosing happier ways of thinking and living. We try and make the process of online counseling as smooth for you as possible.

She is a quick learner and can meet organizational goals with a strategic approach. I wish Anuradha all the best in all her future endeavors.

She is smart with good communication skills and a good understanding of human behavior which justifies her position as counselor.

What To Expect At Your First Visit: Most people feel nervous about either booking an appointment or the first time they come to a session. This is often because they don’t know what to expect. Firstly, we have a deep sense of respect for you and all our clients. When you come to us, we can help you prioritize your goals, as well as what could be the origin and root of those concerns. The first session is generally a case history session and we discuss the problems, the possible course of treatment, and the role of the counselor in helping you.

Our main goal is to help you reframe your current reality to relieve you from painful emotions.
