Personal Counseling

The modern lifestyle with all its conveniences has also opened doors to a plethora of problems at a personal, relationships, work and social level. While there are stress, anxiety and adjustment problems related to academics and at work, between parent and child or partners, with employer, employees or colleagues, there are also issues that one faces with oneself like low self esteem and confidence, emotion management, assertiveness, setting boundaries etc.

Otto Perez Molino said

“We cannot continue doing the same thing and expect different results”

Unfortunately this is what most people do most of the time. They might vary the intensity or the duration but if the process is the same then the result will most often be the same.

A second option is discussing it with people around them who might be facing the same situation. One might get some guidance but mostly it becomes a case of the blind leading the blind. Even if they have managed to deal with the problem it is not necessary that their solution will work for you for every individual is totally different.

What is Personal Counseling?

Personal counseling is a process of self-discovery and growth. It can help increase

Self-confidence, improve relationships, solve problems, achieve educational/professional/ personal goals, and make good decisions for emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual well-being.

It is a platform to consider one’s emotional health and fulfillment, to examine one’s relationships and activities, to learn how to resolve personal problems or to talk with someone not personally involved with a situation who can give feedback from a different perspective. In this way, one can learn new skills and ways of looking at situations and become more capable of solving problems in the future.

There is a common myth that so-called ‘mad’ people go for personal counseling. It is, therefore, necessary to mention here that counseling is a process of growth and self-discovery and is hence, meant for mentally healthy and normal individuals. It is a goal based collaborative process, focussing on the client developing effective and adaptive thoughts and behavior.

Our counselors at Ramdhar Maheshwari Counseling Centre (RMCC) use various therapeutic techniques like NLP, Energy and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Breathwork, Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT therapy), Behavioral Therapy, REBT, Transactional Analysis, and Gestalt to enable the client to adapt and reach his maximum potential.

Since our clients are not unidimensional, we believe in using an integrated approach to therapy to help clients from the space they feel most stuck at. This could be managing thoughts or feelings, or focussing on the behavior or the energy.
