Hello Everyone! My name is Dr Kaartik Gupta and I am a clinical psychologist at AKGs Ovihams Medical Center.

Aaj hum anxiety ke baare mein baat karenge. Anxiety bahut hi common and natural phenomena hai. Jo humein kabhi na kabhi kisi na kisi situation mein experience hota hi hai. Anxiety ke apne kuch faayde bhi hain. Jaise hum iske revolution prospect ki baat karen to isne hi ensure kia tha ki sab survive karen. Jab bhi hume kahin na kahin threat mehsus hota hai, hamari jo anxiety ka response hai , vo activate ho jaata hai. Activate hone ka matlb hai ki hamari body is tarike se bani hui hai, ki jab bhi hum arouse hote hain ya jab bhi humein threat mehsus hota hai, hamari body automatically fight-flight-freeze response ke mode mein aa jaati hai. Jiska matlb ye hota hai ki ya to hum us situation mein ladenge, ya to hum us situation se bhaagne ki koshish karenge ya hum bilkul numb ho jaate hain.

Agar hum symptoms ki baat karen anxiety ke ya jo commonly humein mehsus hote hain, uske physical symptoms hote hain , jaise ki hamari heart-beat badh jaati hai, pulse rate badh jati hai, breathing heavy hone lagti hai, kayi logon ko sweating hone lagta hai specially palm mein sweating ho jaata hai, dry mouth hone lagta hai. To ye saare physical symptoms hai anxiety hone ke. Psychological symptoms hote hain ki hum overthink karne lagte hain, hum future ke baare mein darane lagte hain, hum apprehensive hone lagte hain. Ek hi time pe dimaag mein hazaron khayal aate hain, jisko hum racing thoughts bolte hain. Behavioral responses hote hain ki hum restless hone lgte hain.

Kayi log start speaking faster, kayi log fumble karne lagte hain ya even stammer karne lagte hain. Ye behavioral symptoms hain anxiety ke , jo dusron ko bhi mehsus hote hain ya unko dikhne lagte hain. Hum sab anxiety disorder ki baat karte hain , to vo disorder isliye kaha jaata hai ki jab ye anxiety itni zyaada severe ho jaye , ya hum itne zyaada intense ho jaaye or itna frequently mehsus hone lage ki hamari personal, occupational, or social functioning hai, uspe uska impact aane lage. Tab hum anxiety ko ek anxiety disorder kehte hain. Anxiety disorder mein kayi saare sub-types hote hai, jaise generalised anxiety disorder jisko hum GAD kehte hain ya free floating anxiety bolte hain.

Iske symptoms apko lagataar 6 mahine ke liye mehsus hote hain jahan mein aapki body mein stiffness hoti hai, nausea ho sakta hai, restlessness reh sakti hai, palpitaion bhi bahut common hai. Dusra ho sakta hai phobia - jisko hum fear bhi bolte hain. It is fear of a specific situation or an object. Us situation ko hum avoid karne lagte hain, quki humein lagta hai ki ye hamare liye bahut threatening hai or us avoidance ki vajah se hi hamara darr badhne lagta hai.

Ek or disorder hai - panic disorder. Jisme vyakti ko panic disorder hote hain, palpitations hote hain , reathing bahut heavy hone lgti hai. Unhe lagta hai kahin unhe heart attack na aa jaye , ya vo collapse na kar jaayen. To humne aisa kayi baar dekha hai ki jinko panic attack hota hai , vo hospital bhaagte hain especially apna ECG krane k liye, ki kahin heart attack to nahi hai. Ek or OCD hai isme vyakti ko repetitive thoughts ya, images ya impulsive aate hain jo unke control mein nahi rehte or is vajah se patient ko bahut stress mehsus hota hai. Us anxiety ko deal karne k liye vo kuch na kuch repetitive behave karte hain , jisko compulsive bola jaata hai - jaise iski common theme ho sakti hai saaf safayi ko leke. Uska result hota hai ki person starts washing there hand again and again. They take bath again and again. Aise hi kuch log hote hain jo baar baar locks check karte hain , ya gas stove check karte hain ki vo band hai ki nahi. To ye OCD ke symptoms ho sakte hain.

Treatment ki agar hum baat karen to jaise baaki psychological problems hoti hain, anxiety disorder ke liye bhi best treatment and best combination of medicines and psychotherapy hoti hai. Medicines mein psychiatric medicines ho sakti hain, allopathy medicines hoti hain, anxiety medicines and even homeopathy medicines kaafi effective hain. Psychotherapy mein CBT jahan pe hum focus krte hain , vyakati ke jo false perception hain ya jo thinking hai , jaise jo situation itni dangerous nahi hai ya jo threatening nahi hai ya usko threatening soch lete hain, they start thinking of extreme, ki ye ho jayega is situation mein ya vo ho jayega. Through therapy, that is what we try to identify , ki kya thinking process chal rha hai jahan pe error ho raha hai ya problem ho rahi hai usko identify krane ke baad usey hum modify karte hain and the person is trained to think in a different manner or jab unki perception change hoti hai , they start thinking in a different way.

Jab unka behavior hota hai ki they start facing the situation more often, confidently face karte hain, unka anxiety or darr automatically kam hone lagta hain. Iske alawa kuch relaxation exercises hain , jo sikhayi jaati hai vyakti ko , to calm themselves down on general basis, especially jab unko koi anxiety hoti hai, us time ke liye vo cheez kam karti hai. Iske aalwa ye chiz bhi samjhni bahut zaruri hai ki anxiety bahut natural phenomena hai, jo hum sabhi ko hota hai.

To hum anxiety se na darr ke un symptoms ko hone de, vo automatically subside kar jayega, quki hmari body us tarike se program me nahi hai ki hum us stage mein bahut der ke liye persist kar sakte hain ya reh sakte hain. Agar hum anxiety us time hone dein, it will automatically settle down without doing extra any other thing. So, you just be with anxiety and let it pass and you will feel better automatically. Iske alwa agar kbhi apko ya apke parivaar me kisi ko anxiety ke symptoms mehsus hon ya aap observe kar skte hain to aap AKGs Ovihams Medical Center joki Delhi me hai, pitampura, rajouri garden or moti bagh me available hai, aap humse psychological and homeopathic treatment k lia consult kar skte hain.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Kaartik Gupta. I am a clinical psychologist. Aaj hum depression ke bare me bat krenge. Depression jaisa ki aap sab log jante hain bhut hi common problem hai, psychological problem hai. Agar hum sirf India ki bat kren, usme lag bhag har 4 me se 1 insan ko depression ki problem hai. Depression bhut commonly use hone vala word hai. I think sabse pehle jruri hai ki hum smjh len ki depression hota kya hai. Hum sabhi ko kbhi na kbhi low feel hota hai, sad feel hota hai lekin kuch time baad hmara mood thik ho jata hai. Jab hum clinical depression ki bat krte hain to isme main 3 features hote hain, 3 symptoms hote hain jiska symptoms hota hai ki low mood hota hai, loss of pleasure hota hai. Jo pehle apko chizen achi lgti thi, aap enjoy krte the or easy fatigue feel hota hai. Mtlb bina jyada kam kre hue bhi insan ko thakan mehsus hoti hai. Yye sare lakshan kam se kam 2 hafte k lia persist krte hain. Or vo across time rehte hain. Inke alwa concentration me affect aane lgta hai. Uski jo sexual energy hai ya fir loss of libido hai, usme kami mehsus hone lgti hai. Confidence kam hone lgta hai.

Or kayi cases me depression severe hone lga hai. Suicidal behavior bhi dekhne ko milta hai. To ye basically clinical depression ki picture hoti hai. Hum jis tarike se commonly use krte hain ki me depress hun, vo actually clinical depression nhi hota hai. To I think ye sabse jruri hai hum sabko smjhne k lia. Agar hum iske karano ki bat kren ki what causes depression like any other psychological problem, biological, psychological or social factors hote hain jiski vjha se clinical depression ho skta hai. Biological factors me agar hum dekhen to genetic factors ho skte hain. Agar parivar me kisi ko bhi psychological problem ya depression ki history rhi hai to us vaykti ko hone ki tendency badh jati hai. Jaise ki kisi bhi or bimari me hota hai chahe vo thyroid ho ya diabetes ho ya hypertension ho. Isi trha ye bhi hereditary ho skti hai. Dusra hmare dimag me neuro chemicals hote hain jo hmare brain ki functioning ko control krte hain. Unhi me se ek chemical hota hai jisko hum serotonin bolte hain. Isko happy hormone bhi bola jata hai. Studies ne dikhaya hai ki jin logon ko depression hota hai, un logon me jo serotonin ki matra hai jo vo kam ho jati hai.

Vo thoda sa imbalance ho jata hai. Psychological factors ki bat kren to hmara jo prospective hai ya chizon ko dekhne ka nazariya hai, agar vo kafi negative hai, or hmari personality is tarike ki hai agar koi vayakti jo negative prospective rkhta hai, har chiz me problem dekhta hai, un logon ko depression hone ki tendency bhi badh jati hai compared to someone who has a optimum view to life. Social factors me agar kisi tarike ka tanav mehsus hota hai ya koi stressful situation hoti hai jaise kisi ki job chut jati hai ya koi relationship break-up hota hai ya koi or tarike ka stress ata hai to us vjha se bhi clinical depression ka episode initiate ho skta hai. Treatment ki agar hum bat kren to medications me psychiatrist and allopathic medicines hoti hai. Homepathic medicines bhi hain kafi effective hain.

Psychological aspect ki bat kren to psycho therapy hai jisko counsling se bhi jana jata hai. Through CBT which is the form of therapy for treating depression. Yhan pe unke emotions ko handle krne k lia kam kia jata hai. Kaise unke sochne ke tarike ko effective bnaya ja skta hai. Jis s unki functioning better ho ske. Iske alwa jo studies me btaya hai ki combination of medications and psychotherapy is the best form of treatment. Depression ek treatable condition hai. Aaj kal hum kafi celebrities ko dekh rhen hai jo iske bare me open up ho rhen hain and kafi iske bare me bat kr rhen hain. Jiska impact ye hua hai ki logon me iske bare me awareness badh gyi hai. And now they are open to come and see any professional clinical psychologist or any other mental health professional. Agr apko ya apke privaar me ye sare lakshan apko nazar aate hai ya apnea ap mehsus hote hain to aap humse consultation le skte hain. Delhi me hmare 3 centers hai. Ek Pitampura, ek Rajouri Garden or ek Satya Niketan, Moti Bagh me. To aap hmare pas aake homeopathy plus psychological treatment k lia consult kar skte hain.

Thank You!

My 6 year old son, who will soon be 7 in October has suddenly started crying whenever he goes to school. The same school he attended since lkg. Now he is in class 2. This happened a few months back. Every morning, the moment we reach his school, he starts getting real clingy and panicky. He says he's scared of people who will harm him. This fear has extended to his tuition class as well, where there is a small group of around 10-12 children. This act is stressing out all in the family. We have done all we could and have totally run out of ideas. Kindly advice, Thanks.

Dear Lybrate user, It is a very important phase of life for you and your child and I really appreciate the fact that you are seeking professional help regarding the same. Your child might be feeling scare or apprehensive in being with people other than his immediate family. If this is a recent development, there is a probability that something significant has happened or that your child is apprehensive of something bad happening. It is imperative that you talk to your child and ask what exactly is going through his mind, what is he thinking. Make him feel comfortable and secure with your presence and encourage him to speak up what's on his mind. If it still persists, I would advise you to meet a Child Psychologist in person and seek professional help as the professionals are well-trained in dealing with such issues in children. Hope this helps. Best wishes.

How Can You Handle Examination Anxiety?

How Can You Handle Examination Anxiety?

The exam season has arrived. Students can be seen immersed in their books and notes. Excitement is in the air and so is anxiety. While the former is a good thing to see, the latter raises concerns in the minds of parents and teachers but the fact is that anxiety before exams is a normal thing. The pressure to perform will make students experience nervousness, which is alright, but only if it is up to a limit. If it reaches an unhealthy level, it needs to be managed. If a student experiences the following symptoms before exams, then the anxiety is unhealthy and it is time for a session with a psychologist.

  1. Excessive sweating
  2. Fast heartbeat
  3. Nausea
  4. Headache
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Difficulty in breathing
  7. Lightheadedness
  8. Dizziness
  9. Dry mouth
  10. Gastrointestinal discomfort

These symptoms are an indication of the student being in the grip of panic and fear. Nevertheless, it can be managed and controlled with the following tips.

  1. Make a study plan for preparation: In some cases, students get anxious because they are not ready with the preparation and days before the exam, they feel at a loss as to how they will answer the questions in the exam. To avoid this, students should make a plan for preparation, devoting adequate time to each topic so that the entire syllabus is covered and their preparation is complete.
  2. Meditate and try breathing techniques: Meditation is a great relaxation technique that soothes the mind and body. Also, taking deep breaths (inhaling and exhaling) for 15 to 20 minutes can go a long way in controlling the symptoms of anxiety. In addition, meditation gives you confidence, removes negative thoughts and also improves your concentration and memory.
  3. Exercise regularly: Getting involved in physical activity before an exam seems like a waste of time to many but it is necessary to avoid tension and stay healthy. So, if sports cannot be indulged into, one should go for exercises such as stretching and aerobics as they relax the tensed muscles and keep fatigue at bay.
  4. Eat green vegetables and light food: Eating healthy is also important during exam preparation. If one skips meals or takes recourse to fast foods, it makes anxiety worse. In fact, junk food makes one drowsy. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables are light and easy to digest. They also provide complete nutrition and ensure the sustained release of energy during the study sessions.
  5. Sleep well: Many students compromise on sleep thinking it would help in studies but lack of sleep leads to poor focus and concentration which further affects the studies. It also makes one irritable and drowsy. So, one should make sure that one is getting 6 hours of sleep every day.

Exam anxiety is not an uncommon phenomenon. In fact, it is said that a small amount of anxiety is a good thing as it motivates one to perform better. It leads to nervous energy which keeps one alert but the moment it gets out of hand, it is a cause for concern. So, one must seek help if one is experiencing the anxiety symptoms and follow the above-mentioned tips. It will surely help a student. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Adolescent Anxiety - 10 Things To Help Cope With It!

Anxiety is a common issue with growing teenagers. It is not the typical anxiety before exams or academic projects. It is more than that. Anxiety may be the result of the hormonal changes, which predominantly affect the adolescent years of growth. While your body copes with different changes, your mind tangles between the future liberty and present restrictions.

Knowing certain facts about this anxiety trail can help you to cope with it.

1. Anxiety is not always a disease: Anxiety is not always a disease. It is a normal phenomenon among adolescent teenagers. However, in certain cases it may be severe for some teenagers. They may feel crippled with anxiety. Under such cases, one would require psychiatric help.

2. Talk to someone: A great way to relieve yourself from stress due to anxiety is to speak with someone. It can be a friend or someone close to share your thoughts. If you know the reason of your anxiety, share it, discuss it. You will definitely feel better.

3. Take a break: Entertainment and break from academic work and schedule is necessary for teenagers to lower anxiety traits. However, if the anxiety is due to peers, you may even take a break from them and engage in family.

4. Cry out loud: It is not a silly thing to cry when you are stressed under anxiety. Crying is an emotional outburst which essentially relieves the stress due to anxiety and lets you control the emotional disturbed state of mind.

5. Good sleep: Sleep is necessary for both mental and physical rest. You need to overcome from the fatigue of routine works, stressful events, peer factor, etc. Catching the essential 8 hour sleep is a great way to overcome anxiety issues.

6. Don’t be conscious: Anxiety is a common factor among all your peers. You are not the only one coping with anxiety stress. So, take it light. Relax and don’t be conscious about your anxiety problems. Consider them to be temporary.

7. Be confident: Losing confidence under the stress due to anxiety can be even more disastrous. The effects will never be better. So be confident about whatever you do, whether right or wrong. Every person learns from his own activities. Whether right or wrong, everything will give you a lesson. So you will never be a loser, you will win a lesson.

8. Don’t feel stupid: Being stressed with anxiety is not abnormal or stupid. Everything is okay with you, and you are not the stupid fellow out there.

9. You are not weak: Anxiety is not a sign of weakness. You can rather make it your strength. Fight it back and keep your energy and enthusiasm high.

10. Anxiety is temporary: As you move ahead of the adolescent period, anxiety will faint. You will be more confident and matured, able to tackle anxiety. So consider it to be an affair of a few years.

10 Ways To Quit Smoking And Stay Healthy Everafter!

M.Phil - Clinical Psychology, M.Sc Psychology (Clinical), BA - Hons Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi

Tobacco is considered to be one of the most important avoidable lifestyle related cause of cancer in the world. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), tobacco use kills nearly six million people worldwide each year. Cigarette smoking is the primary source tobacco consumption in most parts of the world. However, in India we also have other sources like – gutka, khaeni, zarda, etc. in addition to cigarette and bidi that leads to such a huge number of people getting affected with cancer of various types due to use of tobacco in various forms.

This World No Tobacco Day (31st May), we are making an effort to educate our patients and the general population at large to give up tobacco and add healthy years to their life. Here are a few ways to help you live tobacco free for the rest of your life:-

  1. Take the decision to give up tobacco use for yourself. Don’t do it for someone else. Do it for yourself, for your growth and benefit.
  2. Take medical help from professionals. Homoeopathic medicines are very effective in helping you deal with the strong cravings and urges you would feel once you stop using tobacco in any form. It is a safe and highly efficient system of medicine to deal with the withdrawal symptoms. In addition, homoeopathic medicine would gradually improve your immunity and thus you will become healthy.
  3. Seek help from a Clinical Psychologist as psychological dependence is as strong, if not more, as physical dependence on substances like tobacco. Through Psychotherapy, the clinician would help you deal with the cravings, handle cues or triggers, help you identify the reasons why you use tobacco and thus eventually replace it with a healthy alternative, and help you to understand how your faulty thinking patterns were maintaining the problem of tobacco use. In addition to these, assertiveness training to deal with peer pressure during recovery phase, and focus on relapse prevention are important aspects taken up during the therapy process.
  4. Freshen up – take time to freshen up your home. Wash your clothes, steam the furniture and clean the carpet as the smell of tobacco smoke can trigger cravings. A more pleasant environment will also make it easier for you to deal with withdrawal.
  5. Throw away your smoking accessories – The moment you decide to quit smoking, throw away your old ashtrays and lighters.
  6. Start exercising regularly. This would help to unclog your blocked alveoli and thus gradually increase your lung capacity.
  7. Keep the mouth busy – When you feel strong urge to smoke or take tobacco, use a chewing gum or have some mouth freshner/saunf . This helps to relieve the discomfort.
  8. Take a healthy diet and drink lot of water as it would speed up the detox process.   
  9. In case of a lapse, i.e. if you start taking tobacco again don’t get disheartened. It happens with a lot of people. Have faith in yourself and the reason why you decided to quit smoking/using tobacco. Try again and keep yourself motivated.
  10. One day at a time program – Just plan for today, that “Today I will stay away from tobacco.” Take it one day at a time. Just be sober for today, leave the rest for tomorrow and do this every day.

The Asthma-Anxiety Link

M.Phil - Clinical Psychology, M.Sc Psychology (Clinical), BA - Hons Psychology
Psychologist, Delhi

The process of breathing symbolises the philosophy of a happy life itself; taking in from the surrounding, staying in the here and now, and eventually letting go off it to live on. It’s a smooth, rhythmic, simple, almost effortless process that happens on its own mostly. Although we can get some control over it, it tends to be involuntary for most part of our lives. However, there are many of us who wish to experience such a feeling more often.

Role of Psychological factors in Respiratory Problems

Respiratory problems are on the rise, mainly due to increasing pollution levels, erratic weather conditions, and poor air quality all over the world. No one seems immune to these drastic changes as people of all ages, belonging to different socio-economic backgrounds are suffering with various respiratory problems. Even though there are physical reasons for such problems, psychological and emotional factors like – personality traits, temperament, early childhood experiences, coping abilities, and stress management mechanisms can exacerbate or even trigger problems like asthma.

Studies suggest a high comorbidity of anxiety disorders, panic attack and even depression in patients suffering from respiratory problems that mostly go unnoticed and eventually affect the overall Quality of Life (QOL) of the individual. The role of psychological factors like a misinterpretation of bodily symptoms can be explained through the “Breathlessness-Anxiety-Breathlessness Cycle”. Feeling or an anticipation of breathlessness can make you feel anxious, which in turn would affect the rate of breathing and can be misinterpreted as a sign of some serious respiratory problem which further makes you feel scared and can lead to a faulty coping of avoiding such situations in the future. Thus, the person gets caught in this vicious cycle that hampers his/her QOL significantly.

What to do?

  • In addition to the ongoing treatment with your physician, seek professional help from a Clinical Psychologist as they are trained to identify and assist you in dealing with such issues more efficiently.
  • Through psychotherapy, the underlying issues that are interfering with the overall healthy functioning of the patient are identified and worked upon using various techniques and strategies.
  • Faulty thought processes like "Catastrophisation", "Misinterpretation of bodily symptoms", "Attributional biases", etc. are identified, challenged and eventually modified through psychotherapeutic techniques that help in better handling of the problems.
  • Relaxation training and deep breathing exercises are taught to ensure you are breathing correctly and more efficiently.
  • Share your thoughts and feelings with someone you trust. It is a must for your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
  • Use positive imagery to help you feel calmer, relaxed and thus breathe freely.

Psychological FIrst Aid

Psychological FIrst Aid

We are all well aware about the physical first-aid. The white box with a red cross on top which contains all the necessary things like cotton, band-aid, dettol, etc. required for healing a physical injury and preventing any further injury. However, not many people are aware of a similar concept called Psychological First-Aid which involves humane, supportive and practical help to fellow human beings suffering serious crisis events. The World Health Organization (WHO) had even declared “Psychological First-Aid” as the theme for World Mental Health Day, 2016 which is celebrated every year on 10th October.

What is Psychological First Aid (PFA)?

It is a technique for providing support and care to a person who has just experienced crisis situation like - been involved in or witnessed an accident, terrorist attack, death of a loved one or suicide to help them deal with and recover from the traumatic event. Providing a helping hand in time can prevent the person from getting traumatized, his/her functioning getting disrupted, keep a check on maladaptive coping methods like excessive use of drugs or alcohol, or even taking an extreme step like attempting suicide.

Who can provide PFA?

Usually it is done by mental health professionals, rescue volunteers, disaster management workers but it would be good if teachers, medical practitioners, health care providers and religious organizations also learn this so that the service providing group expands and more people can be professionally assisted in dealing with crisis in an appropriate manner. Anyone who is trained in PFA can provide it and help the affected person function and cope better. 

Themes involved in PFA

  • Provide practical care and support in a non-intrusive manner
  • Assess what the person needs and his/her concerns
  • Help people to address basic needs (eg.- food, water, information)
  • Protect them from any further injury/harm
  • Listen to people but do not pressurize them to talk
  • Comforting people and helping them to feel calm
  • Seek professional help for further assistance if required.
