Welcome to psycho-wellness centre and dignity clinic. I am Dr. RK Suri. I am having 34 years of experience in terms of providing psychological support and issues related to relationships, career counseling, psychodiagnostics, behavioral issues, lifestyle management, coaching, mentoring, child psychology and education, anxiety and stress, depression and OCD.

People have been coming to me for various sexual dysfunctions, personality disorders, anti-social personality disorders and the issues for poor performances in relationships. There has been a significant increase in terms of people having anxiety and depression issues. I am finding that in the last two decades and in the last one or two years, there is a tremendous interest in people to discuss, share their concerns about their well-being, happiness and whenever they are feeling something is not working out, maybe on account of not doing well in academics, not doing well in life, or not doing well in business.

They do come, consult and discuss. And over the time during consulting, my approach is to provide them a framework of understanding and diagnosing the key issues and the concerns and challenges which they are facing and then we do a behavioral assessment and psychological assessment. Psychometric evaluation is the core of my assessment and it has been a beautiful journey of last 34 years during which I have researched more than 5,00,000 people in different forms of their lives in different sectors predominantly for assessment for jobs, assessment for psychological issues. Even the senior management or senior leadership issues for behavioral assessment have been assessed and been provided solutions to reach the top of the ladder and they are happy.

Day in and day out, people are finding it useful to solicit psychological support at the time of crisis. The crisis intervention approach is coupled with relaxation therapy which I have introduced in different formats of my practice using cognitive behavioral therapy for anxiety, depression, OCD. It has been found to be very, very useful. Even the schizophrenic people who were dependent on drugs for more than 15 years, in a s

an of one year or so, many of them have eased on medications on account of cognitive behavioral therapy. The relationship issues of partners before marriage also called premarital relationship issues, post-marital relationship issues have been deliberately discussed by the patients and they found solutions. The overall process of soliciting the help and easing out their problems; the insight is becoming a useful mechanism and one of the things that I focus on is wellness. For that we have retreat programmes for couples and couples with spirituality try to link all the five dimensions of life like physical health, social & economic health, psychological health and the spiritual health. All these five components will try to balance it out in terms of the functionality and providing divinity and happiness to my valued customers. Thank you very much …

Schizophrenia - How Does The Condition Manifests?

Schizophrenia - How Does The Condition Manifests?

Genetics is a fascinating subject which has received much attention during present times in the field of medical science as it gives the solutions to many a puzzle. The same applies to the hard to pronounce medical term ‘schizophrenia’ that refers to a mental disorder which disrupts the innate human ability to feel, express, behave, and think clearly.

The condition is a chronic illness, and the disorder may last for years or even a lifetime. Often considered to be the most disabling of mental illnesses, schizophrenia does not refer to multiple or split-personalities. It is more about psychosis where patients become unable to differentiate between reality and fiction.

How does the condition manifest itself?
The symptoms of schizophrenia are rendered into three categories. The positive signs include delusions, hallucination, movement disorders, and dysfunctional, and unusual ways of thought. The negative symptoms include the inability to experience happiness or pleasure in everyday life, reduced talking, and difficulty in sustaining or beginning any activity. While ‘positive’ means exaggerating certain behavior in this context, the term ‘negative’ does not imply bad behavior, but the absence of regular behavior patterns. Then follows the cognitive aspect (the subtlest behavior changes) which includes trouble in paying attention, or problems with using memory, etc.

What could be the possible causes?
There’s no specific reason that may cause schizophrenia; however, some factors play an important role in making a person have this mental condition. Various environmental factors are suspected to be responsible for the condition; these may include viral infections, excessive exposure to toxins like marijuana, extreme stress, etc. In some instances, schizophrenia can occur solely due to abnormalities or chemical imbalances in the brain. Experts note that a history of schizophrenia in the family tree can increase the risk of schizophrenia in future generations.

Who can develop schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia can develop at any age. However, it is during the teenage years or the 20s when the condition takes effect. Though rare, it can sometimes invade the minds of children below five years of age.

How can it be treated?
There’s no cure available for schizophrenia. However, the periods of recovery from this illness and its symptoms can be reduced through various possible treatments. These include medication and psychosocial therapy, supportive psychotherapy or cognitive behavioral therapy, electroconvulsive therapy, and psychosurgery. The administration of these procedures can reduce the chances of recurrence and relapse. Sometimes hospitalization may become necessary as a part of treatment to stabilize patients that do not have anyone to take care of them at home.

Modern medicine is yet to discover failsafe remedies for schizophrenia. Early diagnosis and treatment can reduce the condition in patients. Hospitalization can reduce the chances of a relapse and can prevent the mental condition from worsening. The moment any sign of schizophrenia is noticed, one is strongly advised to opt for psychological treatment. These actions can help to reduce disruptions in a patient’s personal and social life.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - How It Is Helpful In Many Cases

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy - How It Is Helpful In Many Cases

For every individual, both physical and mental well-being is essential to lead a happy life. And with the advancement in medical science, not only physical illness, but a host of psychological issues both on a mild and severe level can be effectively treated.

Cognitive behavioral therapy or CBT is a talking therapy that is focused on helping patients manage their problems by helping to change their way of thinking. Though it is primarily known for assisting in dealing with issues like anxiety, depression, it proves to be equally helpful in treating physical as well as mental health problems. Keep on reading to know more about it.

What are the features?
Cognitive behavioral therapy focuses on treating problems that a person experience in his or her day to day life. This treatment is not only time-limited, for example, 6 to 20 sessions for useful results, but also follow a goal-oriented and problem-focused approach for teaching new coping skills and strategies.

What are the benefits?
Depending on the severity of the patients' condition, treating them with cognitive behavioral therapy has many benefits to offer. From helping the patients to identify their negative emotions and thoughts, to making them more capable of managing anger, cope with loss and grief and overcome sleep disorders. Even when it comes to reducing the risks of addiction relapse or dealing with post-traumatic disorders or resolving relationship difficulties, CBT can play a significant role.

How does it work?
With the help of a therapist or the professional psychologists, in this therapy, the patients learn to question, analyze, change and identify their thoughts, beliefs, attitudes that relate to their behavioral and emotional reactions which are the leading cause that keeps on troubling them. Here the therapists usually monitor and record the thoughts of the patients during different situations which helps them to better deal with their anxiety and depressions.

During the sessions, the patients are taught to identify distortions and disfigurements in their own thoughts and perceptions, to consider their thoughts as only ideas about what they are seeing or happening around them instead of considering them as facts and to refrain from assuming their thinking to be true while becoming capable of thinking from different point of views.
What illnesses can be treated by the procedure?

The majority of studies have shown the cognitive behavioral therapy to work great for treating depression and anxiety. However, it can be tailored for treating other illnesses as well, such as bipolar disorder, disorders regarding substance use, eating disorders, specific phobias, panic disorders, anxiety disorder, psychosis and schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress-related disorders and more.

So, if you are bogged down by anxiety and stress, consult a psychologist immediately. Because, it takes a psychologist to determine your state of mind best, identifying the root problem and then determining whether it's CBT that can be the ideal treatment and proceed.

Overeating In Children - Should You Be Worried?

Overeating In Children - Should You Be Worried?

Are you concerned about your child’s overeating? Overeating may seem like a harmless act in the beginning, but it is in this that the root of childhood obesity lies. The germ that overeating, seeds in your child’s life, will affect him/her throughout their life. It is certainly a point of concern for anyone and to keep your child healthy and active, you must take precautionary measures from beforehand.

There are some, tips that you may find helpful to rein in the overeating behavior of your child. These tips are very simple and psychology based, they motivate your child to not overstuff their stomach.

  1. Make your child enjoy and love the food they are eating. Show them how much you are “enjoying” the food rather than just “eating” it. It should be like a celebration.
  2. Teach your children how to understand the difference between being full and overeating. Tell them to listen to their stomach and feel their stomach being full of the food; and consequently stop there, rather than going on eating. Your stomach sends a signal when it is on the threshold of being full and overfull. Your child needs to understand that signal and stop eating.
  3. Try to avoid power struggles both in the case of forcing them to eat or forcing them not to eat. If your child does not want to eat the food, don’t force-feed them. That creates a lasting impression and your child develops an aversion to food items. Rather, leave the food on the table and let your child know that they have access to the food and they can eat whenever they feel like it. Ultimately a hungry stomach will give in and he/she will return to the table. If your child wants to eat more someday, then he/she wants it because they are hungry that particular day, not because they are overeating. Plan some kind of activity after dinner or lunch, such as washing the plates, cleaning the kitchen, so that the food gets digested easily and quickly.
  4. Some foods act as a trigger for overeating. Savory items such as chips, cheese balls, pizzas, etc. and sweet items such as chocolates, ice creams, cookies, candies, etc. fall in this category. These are palatable and are attractive to the kids. It is hard to stop consuming them and in certain cases becomes addictive. You need to teach your child the harm that these foods are causing to their health. Teach them with the help of pictures and videos the effects of diabetes, obesity and other such diseases on the human body.

Your child needs to love the food that they are eating and it is there that they will form a healthy relationship with food. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - What Can Influence Such A Behaviour?

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - What Can Influence Such A Behaviour?

Many live with certain disorders without being aware of it. It is possible that someone close to you is living with OCD, and knowing the symptoms is crucial to diagnose the problem accurately and the treatment can be started as early as possible. 

OCD or the obsessive-compulsive disorder refers to excessive thoughts leading to repetitive behavior or erratic personal behavior. This long-lasting and chronic mental disorder induces recurring and uncontrollable thoughts in a person. These types of behavior are medically referred to as ‘obsessions' and ‘compulsions'.

Patients suffering from the disorder feel a strong urge to repeat certain actions over and over again. These actions may include compulsive cleaning of the immediate domestic environment, washing hands or clothes, checking on things, etc. These behavior patterns may lead to severe disruptions in the daily life of the affected individuals.

How do you know if you have OCD?
Some of the common symptoms of obsession are fear of dirt or physical ‘contamination’, a constant urge to properly arrange or re-arrange domestic objects, having aggressive and sexual thoughts, harboring a desire to harm oneself or others, etc. Common examples of such thoughts include an irrational fear of physical ‘contamination’, feeling depressed at the sight of a lack of symmetry, thinking about acting inappropriately, shouting obscenities, etc.

Some of the common symptoms of OCD include repeatedly washing hands, compulsive counting, checking again and again on certain things, etc. For instance, patients may frequently check whether doors and windows have been secured inside an apartment, or whether the oven is switched on or switched off, etc.

What can influence such behavior?

OCD is an outcome of imperfect brain structure or specific chemical abnormalities in the brain. Genetics is also a possible causative factor. No one single reason is found as the main cause of this psychological disorder. Therefore, the exact reason behind this mental disorder eludes science till date. Many studies indicate that environmental factors may trigger this mental condition. For example, sexual or physical abuse in childhood or infections like streptococcal can trigger the subsequent development of OCD.

 

How can OCD be managed?
OCD can be treated with psychotherapy, medication, and a combination of both. The ideal treatment is determined by the condition of the patient and to which mode of treatment he or she is most responsive. When opting for antipsychotic medication, one needs to discuss this with his or her doctor to understand the benefits and side effects before commencing the medication. When it comes to treating the children or the adults, psychotherapy offers the most effective results.

Patients and their caregivers must realize that OCD does not have a surefire cure. Therefore, it may last for years or sometimes even a lifetime. However, proper psychological evaluation, therapies, and treatment should prevent the condition from worsening. These interventions help in controlling and managing the symptoms to ensure a long normal life. Patients are advised to visit a psychologist in case they identify any signs of OCD because early detection is the first step to effective treatment. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Specific Learning Disability - Know The Common Types!

Specific Learning Disability - Know The Common Types!

Some children have to read or hear something once and it gets imprinted in their minds. Others may struggle to understand concepts. As a parent, your first response may be to think that your child’s teacher isn’t giving him or her enough attention. However, this could indicate a specific learning disorder.

Learning disorders are an umbrella term that covers a range of learning difficulties. If your child is diagnosed with a learning disability it does not mean that he or she is any less smart as compared to their classmates. It simply means that they process information differently. There are many different types of learning disorders.

These are categorized by the skill set they affect most.

  1. DyslexiaDyslexia is a learning disorder where the child cannot understand the relationship between letters, sounds, and words. This can make reading even simple words feel very difficult. It could also make it difficult for the child to understand the meaning of words and phrases.
  2. Dyscalculia: Math is usually a stumbling block for most children but for some understanding numbers could be a lot more difficult. A child with Dyscalculia could find it difficult to organize numbers and understand operation signs. He could also struggle with memorization of multiplication tables etc. Learning how to read time could also be difficult.
  3. Dysgraphia: Learning disabilities related to writing can be termed as Dysgraphia. This involves the physical act of writing as well as understanding what is being written. Dysgraphia can be identified by an inconsistency of handwriting, not being able to accurately copy words as well as spelling inconsistencies.

There is no known cure for learning disabilities. However, there are ways to improve the child’s skills. For this, you must tailor a learning strategy to your child’s strengths. For example, illustrating a word problem may help the child understand it better. Similarly, mnemonic devices and poems could help them memorize mathematical formulas. Converting one type of problem into another can also help them understand concepts. For example, you could turn a word problem into a math problem an vice versa.

In addition, you may also need to consider consulting a learning specialist. They can help determine the type of learning aids your child would benefit most from. Your child may need special education at a school that is equipped with the right services for him or her. The important thing to note is that early intervention is key to treating learning disorders.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
