““Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and freedom.” -Victor Frankl
Counseling for me is like a lifestyle, it's food for the mind. The way we need to address an open wound and make changes in our life to heal it, likewise for concerns of our mind.
My life revolves around the philosophy of being the change I wish to see in the world. Hence, my innate wish and need to bring about a change in my life as well as others’ drove me to study psychology. Intrigued by how everything is connected; the mind, the body, our view of the world, made me who I am today.
Counselling is like a journey, and I believe in helping clients be the best version of themselves. My style is client-centric and I use a mix of solution-focused and cognitive behavioral therapy to ease clients’ distress, ultimately helping them overcome their embroilment and pushing them to become the best version of themselves.
The relief which a client gets gives me the biggest satisfaction and pushes me every day to work hard and dive deeper into what I do. A smile on the face of a depressed client and a relaxed anxious person, in addition to overcoming challenges which we face with ourselves and our healed relationships, lies close to me.
As said by Wayne Dyer, "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change." I believe that stressors can never be eliminated, but how we view them changes the entire story. Whenever I am stuck with a stressor that seems like a block, I turn to my support system, my friends and my family, cry if I feel like it, talk if I want to, and eat delicacies while watching my favourite series.
