Aditya Counselling Centre

Counselling is a healthy discussion between you and a counsellor about your problems, be it personal, social, or emotional issues. It is purely non-judgmental, non-moralistic, and the superego is not involved. It’s confidential, and the process aims to discuss your concerns in a safe environment, all the angles of the problems are considered, and a possible change in your outlook is expected. 

The final decision of the process is entirely yours. This helps you to change your attitude, build more confidence to face challenges by yourself. The number of sessions is need-based only. The counsellor doesn’t expect you to keep always coming as you will have developed the inner strength to deal with issues by yourself. 

Counselling and therapy

Both counselling and psychotherapy aim to bring change in your thoughts, feelings, and actions.  Many times both overlap. Counselling is more of a problem-oriented, unstructured process, and the focus is “here and now.” But therapy is aimed more at bringing changes in your enduring personality. It is also disordered specific.

If sadness, dull mood, and low self-esteem all creep into you for no fault of yours, we call it a major depressive disorder out of the blue. In addition to structured medicines, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, mindfulness behaviour therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy will help you sail on the sea. 

If your sadness is due to ongoing stress, interpersonal issues counselling helps. But also be alert that a normal stress reaction may end up with major depression, which requires treatment. Psychotherapy is a more structured session where the focus will be on one aspect of your problem at a time.

If a problem is created between a couple due to recent events, counselling will be sufficient. Still, if the relationship strain is enduring for a long time, they may require marital therapy.
