Coaching involves the belief that the individual has the answers to their own problems within them.
The coach is not a subject expert, but rather is focused on helping the individual to unlock their own potential. The focus is very much on the individual and what is inside their head.
Counselling falls under the umbrella term ‘talking therapies’ and allows people to discuss their problems and any difficult feelings they encounter in a safe, confidential environment. The term can mean different things to different people, but in general it is a process people seek when they want to change something in their lives or simply explore their thoughts and feelings in more depth.
Stress is our body’s response to what our mind perceives threat or danger or a cause of worry. Stress helps our mind to protect us from any perceived harm.
Our mind and body is not meant to be stressed for long. If this state of mind continues for a long time and increases in intensity it can cause many physical and mental disorders and sometimes is even a threat to life.
It is important to resolve any stressful situation at the right time to avoid any further damage to body and mind. Through therapy and counselling any kind of stress can be reduced or efficiently dealt with.
Signs of stress
It is sometimes very important for some of us to be in control of certain situations or want the behavior of a certain person to change. It is common to expect that people behave as per the standards of our society and family or just behave ‘normally’. It is expected from one’s loved ones to be considerate towards one’s feeling and problems.
Sometimes we all want someone to just understand us. This is very crucial for our mental peace and well-being. When these needs are not met for a long time we end up experiencing anxiety.
Anxiety is a very painful, nervous and agitated state of mind. It makes our mind blurred and disturbed. Long term anxiety has very harmful effects on the mind and body.
At Italktherapy we counsel people to effectively deal with anxiety and restore mental peace which is the key to happiness and good health.
Mumbai is a very fast and a busy city. Relationship are suffering. Issues in marriage, live in relationship or even during the dating period are very common. Break-ups are very painful and emotionally draining.
The fear and pressure of getting hurt again or not being accepted is unbearable. Divorce not just breaks hearts but it takes a big toll on the emotional well being of children and rest of the family. It also adversely affects our finances.
Relationship issues can be resolved through relationship counselling. We, at Italktherapy, understand your dilemma to quit or stay in the relationship.
Through our counselling it can be effectively dealt with in. We assist and support the couple to make this life-changing decision in a healthy and calm state of mind. We provide all the support needed to heal your relationship. We help you strengthen your bond of love.
There are times when the couple is sure about letting each other go. Such situations have to be dealt with delicately and lot of maturity and understanding is needed. In such cases we at Italktherapy, also respect and support you in your decision to separate.
We help you let go of the emotional baggage, pain and bitterness. We try to make it as easy as possible to the couple, their kids (if they have any) and the families involved. We also encourage and help the couple to remain on friendly terms post the breakup or divorce.
Moving on is a difficult phase of life. It is important to take time out to love, heal and care for yourself.
A person who is not healed from within will always hurt in the inside in-spite of the brave smile that they put on to hide the grief. It is only wise to seek help.
The most common myth about Career Transition is that it is only for people who are not satisfied with their job and want a new one. Although one of the main objectives of career transition is job satisfaction – That is not all.
Career Transition is also for individuals who are not happy with what they are earning. The market economy is very unpredictable these days. Many of us are losing our jobs. Some of us are really unhappy with the co-workers and boss.
We at Italktherapy help you to find out your options if you are facing a threat to your job security. If you have resigned from your job we encourage and support you to get your life back on track and start afresh. So if you are looking for options or taking a break this is the best time to explore.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder or OCD is not just restricted to washing hands all the time or obsessing about a certain someone or a repetitive habit. It is the restlessness and anxiety of a very troubled my seeking solace and peace. It is very important to get it resolved at a very early stage before it becomes your way of life and makes each day a living struggle.
Not only the person with OCD suffers from mental pain it gets very difficult for everyone around to live or work with a person suffering from OCD.
The good news is that there is a way out. Our highly effective and proven techniques not just help you calm down and gain clarity of thought. We actually help you get the root-cause of the behavior and eradicate it permanently.
If you suffer from OCD know that there is hope and no one deserves to be in a troubled state of mind. Seek help and everything will be alright.
Nothing is permanent. Not even our life. We live each day taking so much for granted. Sometimes an incident or an event shakes our entire reality and changes our life forever. We are left with so many questions unanswered. So many things unsaid and undone. Losing a loved one is an extremely painful phase of life. No words can define the grief.
But such is life. The reality is that eventually we all have to move on. It is important that certain wounds heal as you move on. The memories of that person should be a source of joy and not a sharp pain in your heart.
We understand this phase and do everything in our capacity to reach out to you and help you release the pain. We do this because this is what your loved one would want you to do.
There are memories which haunt us. They instigate emotions in us which are so intense and negative in nature that they scare us and cause a lot of pain and uneasiness within the body and mind. Sometimes there is a physical pain in the head, throat or gut or any other part of body which triggers at the thought of that particular incident. This condition is known as Post traumatic stress disorder or PTSD.
PTSD is a very common disorder today. Some are not even aware that they are suffering from one. It leaves your angry and teary eyed at the mere mention of anything that reminds you of what had happened.
Do not let these thoughts and memories control you. It is necessary to heal and love yourself from within. Therapy positively enables you to deal with it confidently. With counseling it is possible to free your mind from trauma and have a healthy, happy life.
My career was not taking off the way I wanted it to. I was not satisfied with my job. After attending the sessions I got a clarity and direction regarding my career and life. I also got courage to start my own venture and I am very much happy today with what I am doing.
Her counselling really works. She is the most non-judgmental person I have known. Her therapy was effective and agreeable. She makes it very easy for me to talk about things I would otherwise never talk about. I am a stronger person today and much more confident.
My friend had lost her husband and she came for the sessions. I was very surprised to see the healing and change in her. She recommended Nikhila’s sessions to me. I had a sleep related problem for many years. I am very impressed with her counselling and my life has changed since. I and more energetic and sleep much better now.
I came for counselling after I found out about my wife’s infidelity. I was in shock and depression. My wife was not willing to give me a divorce and wanted us to work on our relationship. I was in the worst place of my life. Through therapy and healing, I was able to overcome my depression. I also regained my confidence and was able to carry out my daily routine much better and it helped me restore my situation to normal. I also became stable to take a decision which was in the best for me and my family.
