Harry (Screen Name), a client who was going through work stress says, “I didn't want to share it with family and friends as it was personal and coincidently came across BetterLYF. My counselor brought in a unique perspective!”

Indian entrepreneur, Vikram Beri and his wife Anumeet are the minds behind this platform which was a result of their belief that happiness is a fundamental need and that small matters can turn into complicated negative thought patterns, if left unattended. “I don’t know anyone who hasn’t experienced stress, be it work, relationships or health. We cannot always confide with family and friends. While counseling can help, the hassle of finding a competent counselor, making appointments and traveling makes it all the more difficult.”
The core of our approach is very similar to Dr. Viktor Frankl’s research work, that while we cannot choose our circumstances, we can choose how we react to them or what we want to do about them. We therefore work with our clients very closely to understand their thought patterns, help them identify the irrational thoughts and develop skills to replace it with a positive thought and subsequently a positive action.
Renowned psychologist Alfred Adler gave a theory according to which every individual experiences feelings of inferiority as infants and spend the rest of their adult lives trying to compensate for those feelings.
However the feelings of inferiority might persist in varying degrees and for some it might serve as a motivating factor to strive to become better, while some might be crippled by these feelings of inferiority and develop self doubt and negative self talk which further deteriorates our self confidence. In certain cases, an individual might overcompensate for these feelings of inadequacy and develop a superiority complex where they perceive themselves to be better than others.
Loneliness is a commonly cited stressor and one of the psychological theories that explain the distress faced by us when we feel isolated is Abraham Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs where after our basic physical needs of hunger, thirst and sleep are fulfilled, we have other needs like that of belongingness and love which is why as human beings we require intimacy and emotional connection. This theory also throws light on why we have the innate desire to be accepted by others. Life experiences including break up, separation,divorce or loss of a loved one may cause an individual to experience emotional and physical distress and cause them to fluctuate between levels of the hierarchy.
Similarly, the kind of attachment style we have with our parents in our childhood influences our pattern of relationships with all other relationships that we have in future. It mostly impacts our bond with our partner, where we replicate the style, anxiousness of interaction, expectation of fulfilment of need and happiness from them.
Our Counselors work with various techniques and approaches in order to work through a vicious thought pattern, resolve difficult feelings of guilt anger resentment or worry, or simply portray a different perspective to a tough situation to make it feel comfortable.
Well now, a better life is just a click away.
