Dear lybrate user, counselling typically is for a shorter duration and psychotherapy is for a longer duration. In situational difficulties or simple problems counselling is helpful but for conditions of slightly major intensity like moderate to severe depression, addictions, schizophrenia etc. Psychotherapy is used. Psychotherapist uses one particular therapeutic approach to deal with the person's problems. But in counselling integrative (mixed) therapy approach can be used. Counselling is more about making the person aware about his/her own mind set, values and perceptions and thought processes and it encourages the person to modify his/her perceptions or reactions etc. Psychotherapy is a slow and steady effort which follows specific guidelines of a therapy and ultimately helps the person to come out of acute depression, anxiety, phobia etc. While in counselling, a person need not be under medication. But mostly when under psychotherapy the person is put on some medication by the psychiatrist (not the counsellor), here medication and therapy goes hand in hand.

Hi, Don't panic. Everyone feels the same. Keep studying with faith in yourself and complete studying portions with devotion and leave the rest to God. You will succeed. Don't worry even if you think you can't Remember. Every one feels the same. Rest assured you practise searching answers for questions. You practise. You will get over the negative feelings. Good Luck

Stress - Homeopathic Medicines to Treat it!

BHMS
Homeopath, Jabalpur
Stress -  Homeopathic Medicines to Treat it!

Stress is the physical or emotional response of the body to an internal or external stimulus that upsets the equilibrium of the body. The contemporary lifestyle causes a lot of stress, which may have adverse impacts on your health. The stress hormones which are secreted in animals only during starvation, childbirth or torture are secreted in human beings all the time.

Natural remedies like homeopathy can be used to combat stress without harmful side effects. Since stress is responsible for several health problems and homeopathy aims at eliminating the root cause of said disorders, these remedies can cure a lot of stress related problems too.

The common homeopathic medicines used to deal with stress are:

  1. Arsenicum album: It is beneficial for people who are anxious, fastidious, nervous or excessively critical. It is also used for patients who exhibit tendencies of paranoia, such as arriving hours early for an appointment out of an irrational fear of being late.
  2. Calcarea carbonica: It is an appropriate remedy for work related stress or burnout. Often, people feel an intense amount of pressure at their workplaces because they feel that they are constantly being watched and evaluated, and are afraid of making even minor mistakes or have strict deadlines to meet.
  3. Gelsemium: Gelsemium is an immediate solution to anxiety and apprehension caused by an upcoming event such as a performance, an interview or a test. Gelsemium can relieve symptoms like short-term paralysis, increased pulse rate, dizziness, nausea and indigestion.
  4. Argentum nitricum: It is useful for nervous fits and impulses caused by suggestibility and extreme mental exertion.
  5. Ignatia amara: This is used to deal with depression caused by stress factors like humiliation, fear, guilt and loss. People who go into shock can also be treated with Ignatia amara.
  6. Kali phosphoricum: It can provide relief from exhaustion due to overwork or prolonged illness. The patient becomes over sensitive, anxious and feels unable to cope with stress.
  7. Natrum muriaticum: It is the treatment for symptoms like insomnia, claustrophobia, frequent headaches and pain around the eyes. It is also used to treat stress caused by isolation and dejection.
  8. Pulsatilla: It is a remedy for mild or violent mood swings caused by stress. The patient may alternate between over excitement and depression within a very short period of time.
  9. Sepia: It is a homeopathic medicine that is used to treat patients of stress who have developed cognitive defect and memory problems.

I can't able to recollect what studied and I felt depressed.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd
Psychologist,
You need help because you could be under undue stress, and you may not be dealing with it well. Depression can cause loss of concentration and poor memory. Identify what it is that is causing this amount of distress and deal with it with the help of a counselor. If it is serious, you will be guided to a psychiatrist promptly. Depending on how long you have these symptoms, the problem could be severe or at the initial stages. I hope it the latter where the help will benefit you more easily. You can also go and do some concentration exercises through Yoga, for example, and improve on that front.

Dear lybrate user, agar aisa hai ki, aap ka bachha nursery ya play group me ja raha tha, aur ab nahi jana chahta, to ye thodi serious baat hai, aap ko usse baat karke ye janana padeka ki school mai aisa kya hua jo ab nahi jana chahta. Agar wo ab tak kabhi school nahi gaya ho, to baat itni serious nahi hai. Shayad kisi ne use school ke bare me kuch galat bataya hoga. Aap please use baat kar le aur uske man mein school ke bare mein kya vichar hai jan lijiye. Phir aap ka bachha jisi bhi insan/rishtedar ko chahta ho, unke school or college padhai ke bare mein bataiye. You will have to be little tactful with your child. Don't force your child to go to school, make some stories in such a way that the child should feel like going to school on his/her own. All the best.

Actually I have problem with my voice. I can not speck louder in some circumstances. And I am not okay with my voice.

PDDM, MHA, MBBS
General Physician, Nashik
Breathe deeply and exhale on a hisssssssing sound. Repeat 10 times. Proper breathing is the foundation for a healthy voice AND control over nervous energy that can make the voice quiver. Say “Mm-mmm (as in yummy) Mmm-hmm (like yes) ” Repeat 5 times. This develops mask resonance, which creates a clean and vibrant sound by creating a clean approximation of the cords and a resonance that will sound great and project easily. Say “Mm-mmm. Mmm-hmm.” up and down your vocal range, from low to middle to high and back again, 10 times.

As strange as this may sound, these are all signs of poor exercise. You must do a lot of walking as exercise, not as work. The difference between the two is that the worked related exercise is strenuous whereas the exercise for fitness will always feel good and make you fitter. As and when you start you will feel the difference.

Absolutely right on all the queries. Nicotine suppresses appetite. The carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke hampers the action of the haemoglobin and prevents the oxygen carrying capacity and therefore the person will feel tired and fatigued. The body will get thin because of the suppressed appetite.

Relationship, how do you do?

MSc Psychotherapy -King's College- London, Pg diploma in counselling
Psychologist, Gurgaon
Relationship, how do you do?

The couples want to be happier, healthier and more connected even though the issues can be different - money, sex, infidelity, in-laws, children etc. Despite this any relationship is completely subjective and no clear cut rules can be executed on it, yet following certain guidelines may help proceeding happily in a relationship.

Suppose you are struggling in your relationship (and if you reading this article there is a big chance you are) you might find it helpful to follow some of these ideas:

1.Love yourself

You must love yourself before you love another. By accepting yourself and fully being what you are, your simple presence can make others happy. Accepting yourself fully as you are and showing yourself this same unconditional love will provide protection, healing, and confidence to work on your shortfalls.

2.Adopt a positive lifestyle

There are many different ways in which you can embrace a more positive lifestyle - practice affirmations, express gratitude, meditation, exercise, just find something that helps you unwind and enjoy life. And most importantly - keep doing these things.

3.Empathize with your partner

The ability to empathize is what inhibits us from just going through life doing whatever we want, without regard for others. It is what makes compromise in a relationship possible. If I realize that something I've done has hurt you (because I can empathize with your pain or unhappiness) I will hesitate to do that again.

4. Take responsibility: Don't try to figure out who's right

If your intention is to create a more positive world for yourself and those around you, it's up to you to have the thoughts, moods, and actions that will create that world.

5. Stay connected

When there is distress in the marriage or relationship, one or both usually feel some emotional disconnection. Frequently, sexual passion diminishes as well. (However, sometime one partner will try to increase frequency of sex in an effort to feel connected.). And often, people will busy themselves with work or kids instead, or do other things to either try to feel connected or to avoid being alone with the person with whom they feel the pain of disconnection

6. Express thoughts, feelings, and wishes

Resentment can be built when couples sweep things under the rug, so be vulnerable and don't bury negative feelings, but try to express them in a respectful way.

Opening up to your partner can make you feel vulnerable and exposed, but it is the most important part of an intimate relationship. Dr. Brene Brown defines vulnerability as uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure. Given this definition, the act of loving someone and allowing them to love you may be the ultimate risk. Love is uncertain. It's risky because there are no guarantees and your partner could stop loving you. Exposing your true feelings may mean that you are at a greater risk for being hurt or criticized.

7. Try new things together

Boredom can be a major obstacle to lasting romantic or companionate love. Psychological research has suggested that couples who experience the most intense love are the ones who enjoy participating in new or challenging 'self-expanding' activities together.

8. Preserve your independence

Dr Perel, in her popular TED talk explains that neediness and caretaking in long-term partnerships -- which can easily result from looking to the partnership for safety, security and stability -- damper the erotic spark. But if couples can maintain independence and witness each other participating in individual activities at which they're skilled, they can continue to see their partner in an ever-new light.

If after trying the above you are still struggling with your relationship, make sure you go to see a couple therapist.

1 years ago, I had a very soft voice. People think that that it was a girl on the phone although I'm a boy. So, I tried to stress my voice by hardening it. Because of which, My voice is very harsh now. And I keep stuttering whenever I sing any Rap Song. Which was not a issue for me, Not at all. So, I would like to know, How can I improve my voice quality and Speak fluently and clearly like before.

Dear lybrate-user. Please don't worry about your voice now. You are just 14. When you attain the age of around 18, automatically your voice will change. If you worry too much, you may have anxiety disorder. Take care.

The most important thing is how are you feeling? no body can be in a better position than you, who can tell, whats good for you. So if you are feeling better without the medication, then you can continue without it. Do not be preoccupied by the feeling that you will not do good. More than the condition your thoughts will hurt you. So live freely, do your work, get active, do any form of exercise, do what makes you happy, drink lots of water. Try these things and get back to me and tell me how you feel.

Mix these with 100 ml water and drink it every morning and night.(same dose) on empty stomach.
