What we have to do in CBT for psellismophobic person? Give me some stepwise idea about this.

Ph. D - Psychology, Professional Certified Coach
Psychologist, Ahmedabad
For those who are prone to stuttering might feel embarrassment, some kind of distress as well as fear in most cases. Psellismophobia is full blown condition / phobia. Cbt is one of the best form of treatment therapy for the same. We believe that our brain can be re-wired / reprogrammed just like the our pc could be programmable. In cbt the basic principle is to looking into the thought processes that lead to negative belief and behavior pattern. We believe that these unhealthy thought processes are continue the chain reaction of thinking, acting and believing leading the behavior to continue. For example" what will happen if I stutter? I always stutter when there are people around. The cbt aims at changing these thought processes and replace them with more positive thought processes, which is called cognitive restructuring. In other words it is all about changing the way you think about something so that your perception will also change and that will help reduce the problem. The first step in cbt is to notice your recurrent thoughts which are negative. These are the thoughts that works as a trigger. And write down these thoughts on a piece of paper. You may divide the page in 3 vertical columns and write down negative thoughts in first column. Second state is rational thinking - here you refute the negative statement with rational thinking, which we all could do when not currently in a stressful situation. For example, if a negative thought is" what will happen if I slutter? rational thought could be as simple as" these people are friends" or" in a conversation what is important is my participation. And in the third column write down positive affirmation - these are positive thoughts and positive statements that you consciously repeat. For ex" I am a confident and effective speaker. This will help you improve your confidence. The bottom line behind this is that you repeat this affirmative statement often enough that they gradually become habitual thoughts. When you are naturally thinking these positive thoughts that itself will improve your performance. Along with cbt you can also use regular meditation session to help you manage your stress better and to induce calmness which helps in the process. Visualization is also very effective way to change behavior. It works as begin with the end in my. Daily you see yourself speaking confidently and maintaining your calm, confident state of being while in conversation. You may also include how you are successfully working with your fear or embarrassment by changing your thought and body posture. This will also help change your behavior. Hope this helps.

Hi, I am a women of 29 years. I have not completed a year of my marriage. It is a love marriage after ten years of courtship. Though, my partner did not want to marry me as he got bored with me. He does not take care of me, but often he suddenly takes care. Though, it is very few. I want love and care from my husband. He never understands me and always stay busy in himself. Day by day I am getting depressed and sometime I think to suicide. But only for my parent I cannot take this step. If I am living then I want to be happy. I don't know what to do? Even sometime I hate myself and I do not see my face in mirror. I think I am headache for all. I want to live happy and make everyone happy including my husband. But I am unable. Day by day my confident is reaching the bottom. I am MA in English, but my husband always humiliates me and says that I am good for nothing. It hurts me very much, he never feels me and always treats me as a maid servant. Even he says that I am inferior to his pet dog. I cannot take this all this, but want to give chance to my marriage. I feel less energetic all the time and neglected too. Please say me what to do?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
For such a long courtship, this can often be the result. Within a year of courtship marriage should have been initiated. There may be very many reasons for that I am sure and not all of them are good. Now that you are getting treated in this manner is something you should never allow anyone do so. And you should never die for any man unless you were in the process of saving him. You are fortunately an educated girl and with some street smartness you can at least get something done. When he is nice to you, grab him and go for marriage counseling. Be firm with him at other times, even if you want his love. He is treating you with abuse and disdain. You have become so disdainful of yourself because of his treatment that you have become your own worst enemy. You sound like someone with a serious rejection issue. You have to love yourself and take good care of yourself if you want him to love you. Not committing suicide for your parents sake is not the best of reasons: you need to love yourself so much that you will never do that to yourself, ever. So when you have exhausted all the chances for this marriage to work, then you can even call it off. Do not stay in a continuing relationship of abuse.

My daughter age 24 has the following symtoms sleeps a lot, eats a lot, foul mood mostly in the evenings, trouble sleeping in the night is she suffering from schizophernia or depression?

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
Sounds like depression and you need to take her to a doctor immediately. In an interactive and personal contact situation, a lot can be learned to come to a more clear and accurate assessment and diagnosis. It certainly sounds like she needs some medication and therapy and any neglect may only worsen the condition that she may even refuse to come for any help. Why wait for that eventuality? passivity in such situations is literally criminal. Do something soon.

How to do meditation. For long concentration. In study and retain whatever read forever.

BASM, MD, MS (Counseling & Psychotherapy), MSc - Psychology, Certificate in Clinical psychology of children and Young People, Certificate in Psychological First Aid, Certificate in Positive Psychology
Psychologist, Palakkad
Dear lybrate-user. Meditation is not that easy to do. Complete meditation takes years to achieve. Only meditation master achieve it. You must be able to understand concentration, attention span, recollection and distraction. If you are able to watch a movie for two hours continuously, if you are able to play a game for an hour, then you do not have any concentration problems. You can't be attentive towards your studies because you are not interested in it. You are able to watch movie and play game because you are interested in it. Human cannot be attentive towards anything for more than 10 minutes. If the task is boring, it is natural that that person will sleep or feel sleepy. Then you should study in such a way that your attention is continued and make the subjects are interesting to you. Effective learning techniques should help you. Recollection depends on anxiety, stress and other physical and circumstantial factors. Distractions while studying are plentiful. You should be able to overcome distractions or avoid distractions. Please understand the above. Change your study style and attitude accordingly. Please search internet for" effective learning" techniques. Take care.

I am addicted to chewing tobacco as well as smoking cigarettes. I cannot open my mouth fully. Please tell what exercises can I do. Now I do not use chewing tobacco. Sometimes I smoke.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Nicotine is the active ingredient in cigarette and chewable tobacco. But there are hundreds of other carcinogens and psycho-active substances and they are highly dangerous to the physical and psychological health a person. People can smoke as unhealthy way of coping stress, part of nicotine withdrawal, to overcome short term depression and anxiety (which it worsens over a longer term). To overcome this the withdrawal needs to be addressed and anti craving medications started and comorbid anxiety, etc like psychological and constipation, etc like physical symptoms needs to be treated. So you kindly consult a psychiatrist to stop smoking. All the best.

Schizophrenia: Types, Causes and Symptoms

M.D Psychiatry , DPM, MBBS
Psychiatrist, Mumbai
Schizophrenia: Types, Causes and Symptoms

What is Schizophrenia?
We all know it as a debilitating mental illness that plagues people across the globe. Schizophrenic patients often feel like they are being overtaken by situations and events that are beyond their control. They may complain of seeing people who are not there or hearing voices where there are none. This happens because the neurotransmitters in the brain of the patient do not function appropriately. There are various types, causes and symptoms of this disease. Read up to know more.

  • Symptoms: Psychotic symptoms like delusion are common in patients suffering from this disease. Also, the patient may be severely blunted in the emotional sense and may bear a lost look and wear a feeling of loss or absence at all times. The thought process or cognition of the patient may also suffer in such cases. Poor concentration and lack of coordination are some symptoms of this kind of suffering. Hallucinations and distorted thought processes also characterise the patient to a great extent. The patient may also display certain typical symptoms like social withdrawal, extreme apathy, and lack of motivation. The patient will also be in an emotionally numb state once the delusions have lessened.
  • Causes: So what causes Schizophrenia, really? While no tests or conclusive examinations exist to pin point the exact diagnosis or cause of the disease, there are many factors that can contribute to the development and progression of the same. Hereditary factors play up in many cases while chemical imbalances in the brain also lead to this condition. The serotonin levels and the functioning of the neurotransmitters are the most significant causes of this disease, in such cases. Excessive abuse of drugs like LSD and cannabis can also contribute to this condition, while family relations and a dysfunctional environment can also lead to this disease.
  • Types: There are many different kinds of Schizophrenia. One of them is Paranoid Schizophrenia, which makes the patient highly suspicious. Disorganised Schizophrenia can lead to incoherence in speech and thought. Catatonic Schizophrenia can cause social withdrawal while Residual Schizophrenia can lead to a complete lack of motivation. Finally, Schizoaffective Disorder can lead to major mood swings.

The various kinds of Schizophrenia are characterised by varying degrees of mood swings, depression, paranoia and delusional thinking. The progression of the disease can be checked with the help of cognitive behavioural therapy, which can help in reprogramming the brain of the patient to a great degree. Rehabilitation programs as well as case management can help in the long run. But the key here is to recognise the symptoms early on and get the treatment or counselling started to reduce the symptoms and their spread.

I became too thin. Fruits,milk, vegetable not working. With this body I can not do exercise gymming. Please suggest something with name and dosage (except medication, fruits,non veg etc) to make me to be healthy and to look also and not to look like a child in my graduation final year!

Dear lybrate-user, I am very sorry to hear about your loss. Losing one's mother is a major setback for any and everyone. It's a very difficult phase and getting out of it takes time as well as the support of other loved ones. I see the loss you have suffered has had an adverse impact on you, both physically and psychologically. Depression is an illness in which your appetite, as well as weight, lowers down for a lot of people. This is what is happening with you. Although rich food and multivitamins may help you recover some of your strength, you need to work on the emotions that you have been experiencing. You need the support of your family and friends in this difficult time. Being okay in front of them while being broken inside, you are living a dual life and it's affecting you. I would suggest choosing a family member or friend you are close to and sharing your feelings with him/her. You need to unburden yourself. Further, you need to work on a pre-decided activity schedule and try and stick to it as much as possible. Make sure you have multiple short periods of study in your schedule. Do not make the study periods longer than 30 minutes at a time. It would be difficult for you to sustain attention at present. Study for 30 min, take a break for 15 min, then again study for 30 min. In this manner, try and bring your attention to your study material. Try studying in a group with friends, write down in order to remember, or teach a friend to ensure you have learned the material. If you find yourself being distracted, read aloud in order to maintain your focus. If these symptoms persist, kindly see a clinical psychologist at the earliest.

Dear lybrate-user, Welcome to Lybrate. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Hi, I'm 23 year old male. I feel stressed always and some fear in mind. It kills me and unable to get involved in anything.

Masters in Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Lucknow
Hi lybrate-user, the fear and the resultant stress has occupied your mind so much that you are unable to concentrate on anything. You need help of a psychologist to discuss your stress and find ways to manage and come out of it completely. Engage in regular physical activity that matches your abilities. This can include walking your dog through the park or a more vigorous exercise regimen such as high-intensity interval training. Research shows that regular exercise provides mood-enhancing endorphins that not only help build self-esteem but take your mind off what's making you anxious. In order to be sure that you stick to a routine of regular physical activity, it's best to sample a variety of activities and rotate between a few that you enjoy the most. For example, you might like participating in group sports most. However, you might also enjoy swimming for when you do not have a group of people with whom you can play. Always speak to your doctor before starting a new fitness regimen. Train yourself to be calm with meditation or yoga. Daily engagement in calming activities can help you rid yourself of anxiety or keep these feelings under control. Meditation involves mindfully clearing your mind of fears or worries and focusing on cleansing, relaxing breaths. Yoga incorporates stretching and body positions called asanas with meditation and breathing techniques for a full-body calm. Look up meditation for beginners or online or sign up for a yoga class at a fitness studio near you. Practice deep breathing. Imagine your stomach as a balloon. Inhale fully and deeply through your nose, feeling your stomach expanding. Then, exhale, gradually allowing your stomach to collapse. You can perform deep breathing exercises during a panic attack or frequently throughout the day to reduce stress and fend off anxious feelings. 20 to 30 minutes of deep breathing daily is ideal. Reciting a script in your head like" I am safe. Or" I am perfectly calm. May help. Eat more fruits and less junk foods, green leafy vegetables and no coffee.

I was in love with my future wife but suddenly we broke out. What can I do to regain my love back please assist me.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist, Bangalore
It looks like you are pining for her after the breakup. Have you analyzed why you two had this fallout? If it your fault, then apologize and see if she is amenable. If not you may have done something quite unforgivable. It seems that you have discovered perhaps that a heterosexual relationship is very different from normal relations. It is very intense, and the very thing that makes it attractive (the opposite sex and all its nuances), can also be its nemesis. You must learn what that difference is and find out how to live with a love relationship. There must be love, respect, commitment, honesty, trust, and freedom in the romantic scene. If you have not offered all this, she may not feel secure. You could both meet with a relationship counselor and work out the problems and see if you can cope up with what is required to satisfy her. You could also meet with her parents along with your parents and negotiate a compromise and some commitments to work out the issues. If however, this is final, then remove all associations of hers: gifts, notes, letters, cards, emails, and any reminders to get her out of your system, not just the mind. Keep the good memories but don’t indulge in them. Get back to your old pals and revive those contacts. Normally when we get a girlfriend, we drop all our friends and live exclusively with her. This is not a good thing to do, generally. So do get back to them and get into good social circles. They will help you get over her. Do not talk ill or malign your ex to your friends, whatever was the reason. That is, unfortunately, a very bad habit many of us have – we must still respect her reputation and treat her with dignity. Do meet up with a counselor and talk about your feelings, openly, if you are still not able to cope.

For concentration and memory try following things on a daily basis and you will see positive results. Concentration is a mental skill that you can develop. There are two ways to improve your concentration: first, raise your brain's natural ability to concentrate. In other words, increase your attention. Second, adjust the environment around you to make concentrating easier. To improve your concentration takes a little time and effort, but it can be worth it. In my personal experience with students. This can make noticeable improvement in a relatively short time. Ideas for daily concentration-boosting habits include: mindfulness meditation - many studies confirm that 20 minutes of meditation or more per day improves concentration and attention span. Focusing on your breathing, known as mindfulness meditation, is one of the simplest way of meditation. Start with ten minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bed. Proper sleep -i am sorry to say it. Pulling all nighter will not help with your grade. Unless you are getting sufficient restful sleep, you are not going to be as mentally focused as you could be. Brain game -. The more you use certain skills, the more they are reinforced in the brain. So it makes sense that playing concentration games and games that require you to focus will improve your concentration ability. You need to be consistent in this. Play for about 10 to 20 minutes each day. Have fun, and get the benefits but remember not to spend more than 20 minutes a day. Your goal is to improve your concentration and not the score in the game! eat healthier - your brain needs the proper nutrients to allow you to focus. Eat more vegetables and fruits and avoid consumption of junk food as much as possible. Lot of research has now proven that sugar is very harmful for our health. Reduce sugar and refined white floor in your diet as much as you could. Exercise is helpful in both reducing stress and increasing focus. At-least 20 minutes a day would go a long way. Optimize your mental state & environment in addition to building the habits described above into your daily routine, also adjust your environment and your current mental state to improve your concentration when studying. Create a study spot. Your brain loves routine. Create a place where all you do is study. An obvious choice is a secluded desk of some kind, but the trick is to make sure you only study in that spot. Studying in bed is a bad habit, for example, because your body is trained to want to sleep once you get into bed. Remove distractions. Turn off the ringer on your phone and take other steps to prevent interruptions. Don't study with the television on or with talk radio playing. Some studies have shown that soft instrumental music (no vocals) can help improve your concentration. Block background noises. If you have to study or work in an environment where it is too loud (classroom or open space) or too quiet (such as at home or at a library) you can get easily distracted by outside influences. With the right amount of background noise you can actually block out distractions and enhance your creative thinking. Use time boxes. Set a time limit when you need to study new material. For example, let's say you want to read one chapter in a book (and remember it). Decide in advance that you can have 45 minutes to read the chapter, and 15 minutes to review it. Set a timer to keep yourself honest, then pace yourself to keep within the allotted time. Stay motivated with rewards. If you see studying as burden, it's hard to concentrate. One way to stay motivated is to set up a reward system. Tell yourself you have to earn that hour of watching your favorite show later in the evening by first completing one hour of intense studying. That way, even if the material is dry, you have the reward to look forward to. Take a break every two hours. You mental energy will begin to decline after a long period of study. So every two hours or so, take a ten minute break. Walk around, eat a light snack, or just stare at the wall to relax your mind. Concentrating is the first step to learning anything new. It only makes sense that if you improve your concentration, your memory will improve also.

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry, MBA (Healthcare)
Psychiatrist, Davanagere
Hi there ~ the effects of stress tend to build up over time. Taking practical steps to maintain your health and outlook can reduce or prevent these effects. The following are some tips that may help you to cope with stress: seek help from a qualified mental health care provider if you are overwhelmed, feel you cannot cope, have suicidal thoughts, or are using drugs or alcohol to cope. Get proper health care for existing or new health problems. Stay in touch with people who can provide emotional and other support. Ask for help from friends, family, and community or religious organizations to reduce stress due to work burdens or family issues, such as caring for a loved one. Recognize signs of your body's response to stress, such as difficulty sleeping, increased alcohol and other substance use, being easily angered, feeling depressed, and having low energy. Set priorities-decide what must get done and what can wait, and learn to say no to new tasks if they are putting you into overload. Note what you have accomplished at the end of the day, not what you have been unable to do. Avoid dwelling on problems. If you can't do this on your own, seek help from a qualified mental health professional who can guide you. Exercise regularly-just 30 minutes per day of gentle walking can help boost mood and reduce stress. Schedule regular times for healthy and relaxing activities. Explore stress coping programs, which may incorporate meditation, yoga, tai chi, or other gentle exercises. Hope this helps.
