We acknowledge that life is not always a bed of roses and there are times when long-standing concerns, the current situation or worries threaten to overwhelm us. One-on-one sessions with qualified counsellors and psychologists will assist you in the following ways:
Counselling: Although we human beings are resilient enough to handle quite a lot of what life tosses to us, there are times when our coping is strained. At that point, not only would sharing our troubles and stressors with a trusted confidante bring about a sense of relief, but also receiving much needed inputs and guidance could help alleviate the burden. Problem-solving skills, coping enhancement and relationship management skills are some areas that would be addressed.
Psychotherapy: At times, some of our difficulties in life stem from established patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving that have been present for quite some time. Advanced therapeutic techniques may be implemented for more deep-seated issues that require changes in behaviour and aspects of personality. A large evidence-base exists for the use of psychotherapy in a number of conditions such as depression, anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, personality disorders, etc., as well as addressing psychological concerns accompanying chronic pain and other medical illnesses.
Couple Therapy: When two individuals decide to be together, differences or similarities in personalities leading to conflict may be inevitable. However there are times when these conflicts threaten the relationship and require intervention. Mind Vidya provides both pre-marital and marital therapy to couples, in order to address conflict-resolution skills, communication skills as well as to help develop a greater degree of understanding of yourself as well as of your partner.
Family Therapy: Man has evolved in societies in which the family is an essential unit. Family therapy focuses on the internal family dynamics, communication patterns, roles and expectations in order to facilitate better understanding among family members, reduce conflicts and improve interpersonal relationships. With the rapid advancement of technology and exposure to knowledge, the so-called ‘generation gap’ appears to be widening and family therapy would be one such way of bridging this gap towards a more satisfactory family life for all members concerned.
Psychological Assessments: These can be used for various purposes, primarily to assess cognitive functions and/or the presence of a learning disorder (dyslexia, etc.) as well as to gain a better understanding of one’s personality profile. Further, interest inventories and aptitude tests can be utilized to serve as a basis for career guidance to take place.
Career Guidance: The right occupational choice plays a major role in the satisfaction one derives from life. One’s career provides a sense of identity and adds meaning to our lives. Career guidance professionals will help you match your interests and preferences with your abilities, strengths and talents, thereby providing you with the opportunity to explore several occupational paths that could lead to greater success and increased life satisfaction.
One’s identity irrevocably revolves around the work that we do, which in turn effects personal and family life, happiness, satisfaction and health as well. We provide customized workshops and EWP for corporates.
Employee Wellness Programme (EWP): EWP focuses on enhancing the emotional well-being, work-life balance, productive interpersonal relationships and life satisfaction of employees. It aims to support each employee through the various issues he/she may be facing, that could be hindering both personal and organizational growth.
Counselling and psychotherapeutic services are made available at office or over telephone in order to address personal concerns of employees.
Life coaching refers to personally-tailored coaching and guidance that seeks to help employees and managers work successfully towards their life goals, enabling them to discover their “personal best”.
Training programmes are conducted for soft skills, assertiveness, confidence building, parenting, handling relationships, finding meaning in life, etc., which will contribute towards optimizing human potential and holistic well-being. Keeping in line with our holistic approach, our workshops pertain to both work-related aspects of life, as well as employees’ personal lives, which continually interact in a never-ending cycle. Adequate work-life balance is the key to increased personal as well as professional productivity.
The foundation of one’s life rests in the hands of teachers and educators. As a child, our life, our schedule, our habits, all revolve around school and college, and we grow based on not only our studies, but also the experiences we gain.
Counselling Services: Amid the haste and turmoil around, it is no wonder that students today are exposed to a lot more stress and pressure – to perform or to conform (to peers). From tuition to extra-curricular activities, online social networking to gaming, dating to experimentation, our youngsters have a lot to juggle and balance and more often than not, they attempt to do so alone. Qualified counsellors and psychologists made available on campus can guide and assist these students to make the right choices, learn from their mistakes, cope with their problems, find solutions, build trusting relationships and sensibly utilize their gift of youth.
Career Guidance: Choosing a career is one of the most influential decisions in life. It is not uncommon to see people lose many years of their life in the wrong occupation, only to realize it later and then attempt a career change. One’s time and resources can be optimized effectively by investing them in the right profession. Career guidance professionals, experienced in the art of identifying the most suitable line of work, can help students recognize their strengths and capabilities, matching them with their likes and interests in order to allow them to explore several career possibilities.
Personality Development Workshops: Informative, experiential and enjoyable, Mind Vidya’s workshops handle relevant and important topics. Tuned to the targeted age group, these workshops consist of activities, discussions and games with the aim to aid students develop individually and socially. It also provides them with a platform to discover themselves and understand how to harness their potential, while also covering sensitive subjects like relationships, online safety, etc.
