Treatment Areas

For the psychological conditions/treatment areas that have been mentioned below, you can rest assured that will help you diagnose, assess, and hopefully recover from them.

We will help you get through the process of recovery, by providing you with guidance, support, and effective recovery techniques.

After your first session, we will be able to understand the severity of the condition that you are afflicted with, and explore together how recovery can be made. The diagnosis will involve discussing your history of symptoms, and the impact they have had on your life. Diagnostic screening, use of scales, and assessments (when required), allow us to identify how your condition has affected you specifically.
A treatment plan will be devised and tailored to you after the diagnosis, which will involve establishing long-term goals, short-term objectives, and treatment techniques. The treatment plan will serve as a roadmap to your recovery, with the long-term goals representing your destination, and the short-term objectives (and treatment techniques) representing milestones that we will achieve to help you overcome your condition.

Anxiety

Anxiety is a very common human feeling. It involves worrying or anticipating the outcome of a situation, but if you’re feeling anxious too often, then you could be suffering from a mental health disorder. Anxiety can alter how you behave, or how you process emotions, so it’s very important to be aware of your mental and emotional state. Occasional anxiety may just inconvenience you a little but severe anxiety can have far more detrimental effects in your day to day life.

Almost 40 million people in the US are affected by anxiety disorders, and it is the most common mental illness in the world. Unfortunately, even though it is the most common mental disorder, it is also the condition that is the most widely untreated (only 36.9% of people with anxiety are treated). You may find it hard to distinguish whether you have regular anxiety or an anxiety disorder, and that is why we’re here. We can help not only diagnose your condition but also help you recover from it.

The various symptoms of anxiety are listed below:

  • Restlessness
  • Feelings of worry that a person doesn’t feel in control of
  • Irritability
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Change in sleep routine (Difficulty in sleeping)

Depression

Depression is also known in medical terms as a major depressive disorder. It can be described as a mood disorder in which you feel a loss of interest and continuous sadness. Depression can negatively affect the way you think, feel, or how you behave, so it is important that you recognize it and look for help immediately. 

There are 3 types of depression including:

  • Major Depression
  • Chronic Depression
  • Mild Depression
Each type has different effects, and these effects result in various behavioral changes. If you are feeling depressed it could have been caused by medical illness, conflict amongst family members, work stress, societal pressure, peer pressure, or maybe something happening in your life which didn’t go the way you wanted it to. Depression can further result in a multitude of conditions such as anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, and also generalized anxiety disorder.
One in every 15 adults (6.7%) suffers from depression every year. That could be you. If you feel depressed, struggling to recover, and want to get to a better you, then we can definitely help you with that.

If you’re confused about whether you have depression or not, then check for symptoms. Some of the symptoms are:

  • Feeling sad
  • Losing interest in activities
  • Change in appetite
  • Change in sleep routine (sleeping too much or too little)
  • Increased fatigue
  • Increase in purposeless activities
  • Feeling guilty
  • Having thoughts of suicide

Trauma/PTSD

Trauma is the feeling of discomfort, fear, or helplessness (maybe in response to a horrific event). PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder) is a psychological condition that occurs from response to a past-lived trauma. If you’re suffering from PTSD or trauma, then it’s likely you’ve experienced a traumatizing situation such as war, crime, death of a loved one, an accident, etc,
While other medical conditions are likely to improve gradually over time, PTSD is most likely to become worse. It is probably causing you great psychological damage and you may be noticing that you’ve become fearful and more prone to anxiety. PTSD can completely disrupt your life so it’s very important that you begin treatment as soon as possible.

The symptoms of trauma and PTSD are more severe than other illnesses, so it should be easier for you to recognize. Some of the symptoms are:

  • Nightmares
  • Flashbacks of an unpleasant event
  • Fearful thoughts
  • Refusing to discuss the event
  • Hypersensitivity
  • Perpetual guilt or blame
  • Depression, phobia, anxiety, and other mental conditions arising

Grief/Loss

Grief/Loss can be a serious condition that is experienced differently by individuals based on their personal experiences, but you need to understand that grieving is a very natural process. If you’re suffering from the loss of someone that you held very dear, or you’re saddened by the end of a relationship or job that you cared a lot about, then it’s likely causing you some grief due to loss.
There are 5 stages of the grieving process, namely: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Even though the five stages of the grieving process have been unanimously accepted, they were originally developed for an end of life process. It isn’t necessary that you will experience them in any specific order, or that you even experience all 5 stages. We can help you cope with your grief, if you’re willing to put in the effort with us.
Some of the symptoms of a grieving person are mentioned below.  If you’re experiencing any of them, then please be sure to inform us:
  • Feeling agitated
  • Feeling weak mentally and/or physically
  • Loneliness or self- isolation
  • Crying or not being able to smile
  • Unable to carry on with daily activities.
