The therapy set up is completely confidential, with non- judgemental & caring attitude of the therapist. Together, the client & therapist explore the client's feelings, beliefs or behaviours, and help him/ her modify them for a happier life.

One cannot deny the effect of first impression. It is always lasting! Research reveals that when there is a difference between what we say and how we look, people tend to believe the visual cues, not the words.
Psychologically speaking, people form primary appraisals about you at the amygdala region of brain at the very first sight of you. This means, how you appear contributes to how others are going to treat you. So, we help you in putting your best foot forward and form a 'winning image.'

" There are no horrors except in our heads. We make hassles into
- Albert Ellis.
Low confidence or self doubt is something where people feel that they are incapable to carry out certain tasks. Self doubt arises in almost every situation to people but it becomes a HORROR when all a person have is only self- doubt. Let it be a part of you and not the whole YOU. Confident people are those who do their tasks in-spite of self doubt.
Rational thinking helps in overcoming self doubt than any other thinking
pattern like positive or negative. Now let us see how...
In negative thinking, we only think about the problem and estimate it to be very bad. while, in positive thinking we believe that nothing bad can happen and sometimes we even deny the existence of the problem and this way we reduce our problem solving attitude. But, rational thinking covers the flaws of both type of thinking as in that, we accept the existence of problem and the uncertainty of situation. we estimate it's actual probable badness,but don't blow it out of proportion. This way, hassles don't turn into horror.
Now let us see, why people cannot get over their feelings of low confidence. As it is said in the above quote by sir albert ellis that there are no horrors except in our heads, meaning we perceive the situation to be very very dangerous than it's actually it is.
For eg: Riya is very afraid of public speaking, to the extent that the mere thought of speaking in front of people gives her shivering sensation. When asked about her perception on what she thinks the crowd is like. She states that, She imagines the people walking away as she starts to speak. And, if this happens, it is very very bad and horrifying.
Here, riya is demanding absolute certainity that people should like her and if they don't, it is very bad.
Now, what she can do to overcome her feelings. First of all, she should learn to check her thoughts by asking herself the following questions:
Second thing is to act on her fear and see the actual reaction of people. It may or may not confirm her thoughts but surely it is not that horrible.
In the whole article i have been talking about how to overcome your self doubt. But is it really that bad and unwanted? No, in fact i would say that it has to be there, it is the spice of life. Without self doubt, how can one feel the extreme pleasure of doing the task in spite of having some self doubts. There won't be any rush or excitement also. It is the seed for improvement. If people have some self doubt, they actually wait and think, if they are really capable of performing and if not, they can always improve.
Well, I know many of you can easily relate to riya in most of the situations of your life, all I would say that just check the accuracy of your thought objectively and act on your fear. Hassles are going to be there in every area of your life, and you can't remove them. Better accept it and work on it because everything is in your head, you just need to change the view of looking at the challenges of life.
I hope all of you will work on your own thoughts and one day achieve the glorious success.
All the best!!
Fragrance has a very important role in our lives. Be it with food or people. Imagine, your mom is cooking your favourite food, it's fragrance only makes your day & you start feeling it's taste. Also, if you are standing in front of a person, very well dressed but has foul breath. Do you think you will be able to talk to him for long? Obviously, not. That means, like clothes, perfume plays a big part in our image. But, usually people neglect it, or they don't know how to choose.
Mind it, perfumes can be the biggest image maker or breaker. Unlike, clothes that can be managed with good ironing & fit, one cannot do away with bad perfume. Hence, it is very important for you to choose what message you want to communicate. Perfume can mark your presence. For eg., if you are shy, you can use a bold perfume to get noticed. However, one should never go overboard with the perfume. It is always safe to underplay if you are not sure about it.
Also, your choice of perfume can be changed according to season. This may sound in contrast to your "signature perfume concept i.e., carrying one perfume all the time, making it one's brand." Our body chemical changes according to season. So, you can go light in summers, as the smell is easily noticed during this time and reverse it during winters.
Often, people get confused as to how to select a perfume and don't know about the procedure one has to go through for finding that 'one perfume' for yourself.
Some tips to remember when you go to buy a perfume:
Lastly, remember, the scent you choose can be remembered as your identity by others. It also makes you feel confident & attractive. So, choose it wisely
Most of us know that distraction is bad and that it hinders our progress. But, how bad it really is? Research says that, every 3 seconds of distraction doubles work error. Now, this is the risk we can’t afford to take. Because of distractions, many people are developing chronic attention deficit syndrome. For rest, it may be not as big to cause attention deficit, but it surely does interrupt our daily tasks and reduces our productivity.
For instance, I’ve been thinking to write about this article for so long now, but I could not. Reason, DISTRACTION! Last week I thought to research some facts about distraction. I started surfing and then, I came across a link for “Overcoming Procrastination,” I read that, then following that, the internet suggested me to read about “Time management,” and loosing track of my time I kept clicking on one link after the other, and after few hours, I realised that, now, I am looking at an online shopping site, not even close to the topic I started with. Needless to say, even these distractions were distracted by some watsapp pings, emails and phone calls. Pretty much, story of every person these days and I am no different. But the fact that I am writing this article means, I did fight against distractions, and I can say now that I am quite experienced in getting distracted and fighting that too :D .
Some more research (Gloria mark, University of California) on distraction suggest that, on an average day, the average person at work
Even after knowing all the facts about distraction and how bad it is, why can’t you stop getting distracted and start focusing just like that? Well, being a Cognitive Behavior Therapist, my answer is that it has lot to do with our thinking and perspective about the distraction rather than the distraction itself. Many people, especially students, tell me that they can’t delay checking face book or watsapp as soon as their phone buzzes, they HAVE to check that, it has become like some kind of automatic reaction to the stimulus. Well, first, you should know that it is not an automatic response; it is a conscious choice we make and that’s why if you want to increase your productivity and stop this reaction, first you have to do is, pause and look for AUTOMATIC THOUGHTS as soon as your phone buzzes, or when you have any kind of distraction.
Some of the reasons why you can’t leave your smart phones and internet are:
Surely there are other distractions in our life too, but smart phones and internet are the major ones these days.
Most of other distractions too have same underlying beliefs. Being humans, it is very natural for us to get distracted some or the other time, so do not aim for complete “ekagrata” because that would be very difficult to achieve in this era. But, you can definitely aim to minimise your distractions by taking small steps. Like, may be for first few weeks, aim to focus on work one hour more than you usually do, and gradually increase the duration. Very soon, you might notice that with practice you are now able to focus more and distractions are not much of a problem for you. Start focusing on work NOW!

I am greatly benefited by Rohan Sir's personal counselling sessions. When I first met him, I was very depressed and had thoughts about ending my life. It wouldn't be exaggerating if I say that my life was completely changed after sessions with him. I am very grateful to you sir. Thank you so much :)
I first met Yogita mam at my gym and there I came to know that weight loss is even effective with therapy. I decided to give it a shot. And to my surprise, within few sessions with her, I not only lost weight, I was happier , eating more of healthy foods and was consistent with my exercise. Thank you mam. It was great experience.
