Providing diagnostic services and psychometric testing using standardized IQ tests as well as Personality tests such as WISC, VSMS, DST, CARS, TAT, HTP, BG etc. Based on case history, presenting symptoms and test results, clients are provided with a provisional diagnosis of problem areas and are subsequently given appropriate therapy, behavior modification and counseling, they are also referred to occupational therapy speech therapy etc. Psychiatric referrals for clients are made when necessary.
In therapy, my clients and I work together as a team to identify and solve their problems and overcoming their difficulties.
As per CBT /REBT philosophies, I do believe, that it is not situations that primarily lead to our reactions, but rather, its our own interpretations of those situations, that are essentially responsible for the way we feel what we do. Therefore people tend to disturb themselves by holding rigid and extreme beliefs about life’s adversities. If people want to respond healthily to these adversities they need to change these rigid and extreme beliefs to a set of flexible and non-extreme beliefs.
I continue to be struck by how quickly and thoroughly CBT/REBT brings relief to people who struggle with depression, anxiety, and life stress, as well as by its applicability to problems like marital problems or procrastination or infact...almost every problem for which people seek psychotherapy.
Hence, during therapy I work collaboratively with my clients to identify, evaluate, and if necessary…modify problematic patterns of thinking as well as to acquire behavioral skills to manage emotional distress and/or make positive changes in their lives. Treatment plans are based on therapy goals and are individualized to each client.

While this is a frequently asked question, it can only be answered after I have met you and found out what problems you are seeking help for and what you want to achieve from therapy. I am happy to discuss this issue with you after I have carried out an initial assessment.
