To Whom- Our counseling services are offered to individuals,families and groups. While individuals and families can decide on their own whether they would like to work together, group counseling works best in institutions and organizations.
As per the need of the clients we customize counseling services,though we also make recommendations based on our reading of a situation. If we feel, it is best for a client to work with a companion such a member of their family- parent/s, spouse, child/children or friend, we work it out in a consultative, collaborative process with the individual.
Group work is mostly with individuals who either have identical needs, or those who are within a particular institution (school/college/university/correctional facility/NGO) or organization.
Recovery Oriented Counseling
We specialize in helping people recover from serious and long term mental ‘illness’.
Recovery from mental illness is not a chance or accident that can happen for a few and not the rest. There are scores of people, organizations, institutions all around the world devoted to helping people recovery from serious mental illness. We count ourselves among them. People are constantly into search and research, thinking of newer ways in which people can recover from mental illnesses, even after being on medication for long years. However, we do not insist whether someone should take medication or not- it is entirely their own choice. Pharmacological support is only one part of the solution for anyone- if they believe it is working forthem. The rest also has to be offered, which we do in ways which are honed by years of experience, research and helping many take the recovery road.
Each Recovery is Different Just as every person is unique, so is their mental ‘illness’ or mental ‘suffering’. Therefore no two people can recover in exactly the same manner, though they may have common overlapping issues. Recovery, therefore has to be customized and adapted to each person’s need-just like their shoes. One size does not fit all.
