Hi, You have problem of cross dressing. It can be cured if you don't like it. There is a treatment for this too, but for now would like you to practice Mindful Breathing The primary goal of mindful breathing is simply a calm, nonjudging awareness, allowing thoughts and feelings to come and go without getting caught up in them. Sit comfortably, with your eyes closed and your spine reasonably straight. Bring your attention to your breathing. Imagine that you have a balloon in your tummy. Every time you breathe in, the balloon inflates. Each time you breathe out, the balloon deflates. Notice the sensations in your abdomen as the balloon inflates and deflates. Your abdomen rising with the in-breath, and falling with the out-breath. Thoughts will come into your mind, and that’s okay, because that’s just what the human mind does. Simply notice those thoughts, then bring your attention back to your breathing. Likewise, you can notice sounds, physical feelings, and emotions, and again, just bring your attention back to your breathing. You don’t have to follow those thoughts or feelings, don’t judge yourself for having them, or analyse them in any way. It’s okay for the thoughts to be there. Just notice those thoughts, and let them drift on by, bringing your attention back to your breathing. Whenever you notice that your attention has drifted off and is becoming caught up in thoughts or feelings, simply note that the attention has drifted, and then gently bring the attention back to your breathing. It's okay and natural for thoughts to enter into your awareness, and for your attention to follow them. No matter how many times this happens, just keep bringing your attention back to your breathing. Practice this daily for 15 minutes. Get back to me then All the best.

Occupational Therapy In Mental Health - Everything You Need To Know!

Occupational Therapy In Mental Health - Everything You Need To Know!

The occupational therapy aims at ensuring that individuals have a productive and satiating life. In children, occupational therapy helps in mastering skills, recover, and carry out daily chores without depending on adults. Apart from these, there are other benefits of occupational therapy. Fortunately, they can be measured, and have a practical approach. When children find it difficult to take bath, eat, or do any other daily living chores themselves, occupational therapy helps them to overcome the barriers. But occupational therapists also do more than taking care of physical health. They also help in taking care of mental health.

What can be expected: Grief adjustment, emotion handling, stress management, and parenting can be challenging for many people. Anxiety can slowly turn into depression. The relationship between the individuals determines their mental health and performance. This is rightly understood by occupational therapy. The needs of the individual are approached with the context of his or her family and environment by an occupational therapist. The mental health approach suggested by occupational therapy is client-centered, and this is why it can produce admirable results. The approach is practical and client-specific. The therapist considers a lot of methods and plans for delivering result in case of each patient. There is no one size fits all approach in occupational therapy.

How a therapist works: As the first step, the practitioner speaks with the client and the family to find out what activity is most important, for the personal and family life. Then the practitioner suggests how one can create goals. Short-term goals help one to stay focused and motivated towards the process. Long-term goals help in achieving success. The therapist helps in sorting this out. The mental illness of the client is observed by the therapist, and a lot of time is spent on this process. The therapist also teaches lots of practical ways to come over the mental illness, and a wide range of relaxation techniques are taught. The client can choose what best fits him or her.

Substance abuse and other unhealthy activities are slowly replaced with healthy activities with the help of the occupational therapists. The mind of such patients is diverted towards healthy activities. Skills, interests, strengths, and weaknesses of the client are analyzed by the therapist, and wherever required, modifications are suggested by the practitioner. Skill training with the help of peers is carried out, and apt employment opportunities are suggested. An idle mind is Satan’s workshop and a therapist, hence, emphasizes on a practical way to find a suitable employment opportunity. Also, he may give ideas on the environment of the workplace, even at the beginning, thus preparing the client. Balancing emotions can actually help a lot of people, and these therapists aid to structure lives and balance whatever the client wants.

Occupational therapists can help students to stay strong against peer pressure. They can help adults to stay content with their job, help jobless to stay focused and hone skills while preparing for the upcoming opportunities, and patients who are on the recovery mode to understand the recovery process and stay strong. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Loss of interest, decreased concentration and attention, feeling low and disturbed sleep or appetite are some of the signs of depression. Consult a psychiatrist who will assess you in detail. If you are feeling suicidal or hopeless, seek professional help immediately. Try some relaxation techniques like yoga, meditation and deep breathing. Indulge in hobbies. Spend time with people close to you.

Can you just wait for the mood to swing back from low to high, do not be overly concerned of your present situation, if it is difficult to be with your state, get a proper counseling done. Take care, this too will pass.

Hello. My suggestion for you is - continue with the medicines you are on, but gradually and slowly reduce the frequency of use and then stop them completely later and side by side start with the homoeopathic medicines which I am going to advise you, so that they will take start taking the care of your problem. Start with 1 dose of Natrum Mur. 200 daily at 11am, Brahmi (Bacopa Monierri) Q/ 10 drops in 1/2 cup of water thrice a day and Kali Phos. 6x/ once at night for 15 days. After that report to me about intensity of your sufferings, will recommend you accordingly. For management part: do breathing exercises (like pranayam, anulom- vilum) early in the morning before sunrise, for relieving stress from your body! If possible, you can learn yoga from a qualified yoga-teacher/ instructor.

Hi, I do appreciate your concern for your boyfriend. Considering his symptoms and the fact that he has even suicidal wishes, the best thing that you can do right now is to take him to a psychiatrist and seek professional help. Treatment with medications will help him get out of this dark phase. In addition, you should make sure you are there for him when he needs to vent out his feelings. Listen to him emphatically. Make sure, his family is also involved and that he is not left alone for maximum possible time. I do hope that with your help, your boyfriend will be able to fight depression. Best wishes.

You are going to feel isolated like this for some time as one always keeps comparing delhi with bombay. Once you realise that apples cant be compared with oranges, your issue would start resolving. Also in mumbai one has to take an initiative in introducing ourselves to people and then you would surely get the returns.
