Therapeutic Services

Psychotherapy is a process whereby a psychologist uses scientifically validated procedures and techniques to help you cope more effectively with your problem. It is not advising but facilitating the individual to work through his/her problems. Psychotherapy is a collaborative treatment based on the relationship between an individual and a psychologist. Through the process of dialogue, it provides a supportive environment that allows you to talk openly with someone who is objective, neutral and non-judgmental. You and your psychologist will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best.

By the time you are done, you will not only have solved the problem that brought you in, but you will have learned new skills so you can better cope with whatever challenges arise in the future.

How it is done?

One-On-One Sessions

Therapy and counseling sessions with children and adolescents on a one-to-one basis. This is between the individual and the psychologist.

Family Work

Working with the whole family to help the child and adolescent overcome his/her concerns. I provide a supportive environment that allow to talk openly.

Modalities Used

I use an Eclectic Approach comprising Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Family and Narrative Therapy and Supportive Psychotherapy.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

This therapeutic modality works at the thought and behaviour level and helps bring about change in unhelpful thought patterns, feelings and behaviour. It is effective in depression, anxiety, interpersonal issues, eating disorders, low self-esteem, fears, emotional and behavioural problems in children and adolescents.

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that was developed to resolve symptoms resulting from disturbing and unresolved life experiences. It uses a structured approach to address past, present, and future aspects of disturbing memories.The approach was developed by Dr. Francine Shapiro to resolve the development of trauma-related disorders as resulting from exposure to a traumatic or distressing event, such as natural disaster or childhood trauma. Since Dr. Francine Shapiro introduced EMDR to the clinical community in 1989, the last 25 years have seen a phenomenal research on the effectiveness of this therapy.

Today, EMDR is accepted as a valid method of treatment for PTSD by the American Psychological Association and the American Psychiatric Association. And widely used in USA, Europe and many parts of Asia. EMDR therapy is recommended for children, adolescents and adults with PTSD by World Health Organization (W.H.O.), 2013.

I got trained in EMDR in the year 2010 and have been practicing it with children and adolescents since then. I am also training to become a facilitator. I am a board member of the EMDR India Association and an active part of the EMDR Asia.

Children have times when they are sad or down. Occasional sadness is a normal part of growing up. However, if they are sad, irritable, or no longer enjoy things, and this occurs regularly, it is a sign that they are suffering from a major depressive disorder, commonly known as depression. Some people think that only adults become depressed. In fact, children can experience depression, due to stress or after losing someone close to them.

If these symptoms prevail, it is best to seek help to understand what the problem is.

The symptoms in adolescents who develop depression are noticeable by the age of 11 or 12. This crucial age is full of transition as the child’s body is going through physical, emotional, and hormonal changes.

Parents may attribute these changes as a passing phase, and assume that the child will get back to normal in a few weeks. While many children do go through behavioral changes as they grow up, others may have a mental health issue that needs to be addressed.

It’s crucial for parents to observe any behavior that is out of the ordinary, and which persists beyond 2-3 weeks, and seek help for it.

Anxiety is a combination of physical and psychological symptoms used to describe a feeling of unease, worry and fear. It is a type of fear usually associated with the thought of a threat or something going wrong in the future, but can also arise from something happening in the moment.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that is triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event. Most individuals who go through traumatic events may have temporary difficulty adjusting and coping, but with time and good self-care, they usually get better. If the symptoms get worse, last for months or even years, and interfere with one’s day-to-day functioning, one may have PTSD.
