Counselling Therapy - 10 Reasons To Go For It!

Counselling Therapy - 10 Reasons To Go For It!

Therapy is an ideal way of freeing your mind over a talk session with a therapist. Here are 10 reasons you should try therapy for a better health of mind.

  1. Therapy is for everybody: Therapy is not for crazy people with mental illness. It is good for anybody and everybody who wants to gain peace of mind.
  2. It is easier to talk to a stranger about some matters, than a friend: Only a stranger has the ability to recognize an irregularity in you, which your friends cannot. Therapists can dig into matters deeply and arrive at different conclusions.
  3. You get to learn more about yourself: During therapy, you talk about stuff and come to different realizations about things, which you never thought or cared about before, which allows you to discover a new side of yourself.
  4. You can get out of your comfort zone: Before going for therapy, you may feel awkward or strange to sit with a stranger and discuss personal matters. However, therapists are professionals and once you open up to them, you will be able to discuss everything with them comfortably.
  5. You feel supported: There are many issues in life, which seriously affect you, but no one pays heed to them. Your therapist listens and discusses everything you have in mind. Finally, you are heard.
  6. You develop better self-awareness: Therapy gives you a chance to stop for a moment and contemplate about certain areas of life, which you usually never cared about. What you never thought about might finally affect you, and you will try to improve on it.
  7. You feel better: You may have serious issues and might be feeling troubled. The therapist gives you suggestions and when you leave the clinic, you are bound to feel much lighter and calmer.
  8. You can focus on yourself: In the daily hustle bustle of life, you may be so occupied that you never get a chance to think about or focus on yourself. Weekly therapy gives you an hour, which is dedicated only to you to explore your feelings, thoughts and concerns about life.
  9. You may be pushing down yourself: Ignorance of serious issues causes a negative effect on your life and health, as well in the lives of your dear ones. Therapy allows you to bring all these ignored issues to light and after recognizing them properly, you can improve upon them.
  10. Smart, successful people believe in therapy: Therapy is for strong people who have the courage to approach a stranger with their personal issues. Majority of smart and successful people recognize the benefit of therapy and undergo the same for their own benefit.

Therapy is  very effective and allows you to express yourself honestly and benefits you in many ways.

Hi, I have been on Uvox 50 mg and melzap for about 6 months now for my anxiety and OCD. I used to take twice daily but since a month now, I tapered down to just one dose at night. But the other day I forgot to take that one dose at night and I had a very bad episode of nightmare. I couldn't sleep the entire night, I would wake up every hour experiencing a nightmare. Do you think it's because of the withdrawal?

Do not stop medicines suddenly, some times they have a rebound effect. Take medical advise before stopping, by the way how is your original problem after 6 months medication.

Ways To Help You Manage Old Age Loneliness!

Ways To Help You Manage Old Age Loneliness!

Elderly people are usually prone to social isolation which can take a toll on their health. With physical inability or limitations to move around, socializing also gets limited and loneliness comes into your life. Thus, a major section of the senior population tends to have psychological issues as well which may be caused due to the loss of company and lesser interaction as well as a generation gap in trying to deal with younger people. If you are finding it hard to cope with loneliness, here are a few initiatives worth giving a try:

  1. Meet New People: Try giving an effort into meeting new people and enjoying their companionship. With time, few of these relationships might culminate into deep friendship. You can always turn to these people for emotional support as well as keeping company.

  2. Community Volunteering: Volunteer your time engaging yourself in local community activities and social events. Also try and get into interest groups where you can find people who have common interests as yours.

  3. Get back to your long lost hobbies: Re-kindle your long-lost zeal by adopting or getting back to hobbies you truly love, for instance, art and craft, gardening, sewing, playing an instrument, reading and writing, puzzles and writing to pen pals.

  4. Get a pet: Pets can add a new meaning to your life through their unconditional love. There is no greater joy than the joy of bringing up a pet. Ensure how don’t have allergy problems and will be able to keep up with the readily requirements of pets.

  5. Reminisce your good old days: Recollection would enhance your emotional health and will less likely make you feel withdrawn.

  6. Invite people over: In case you are home-bound, coming across people each day would be difficult. In that case invite your mates over tea or keep in touch with them through phone or internet. The internet is also a great resource to keep yourself occupied and to find hobbies that you can get into.

  7. Keep depression at bay: Loneliness can often make you fall prey to depression. Keep a check on any sign of physical or mental deterioration such as the feeling of despair and sadness, sleep-troubles, suicidal thoughts, unwillingness to take decisions, apathy and appetite loss.

  8. Help others: Use your acquired experiences and knowledge of your life-time in helping people out. Teach as well as learn something new each day.

  9. Write it down: Maintain a personal journal to pen down the things you are looking forward to or devise a plan for the forthcoming week.

  10. Take initiative: Do not wait for others to call on you. Instead travel by yourself to visit them. Seize every chance to initiate a conversation and smile even if life seems hard so that people are automatically attracted to you.

I am from India and recently visited asa patient's by stander to Royal United Hospital , Bath, UK. The only thought I got throughout was why hospitals in India are not as clean and why Nursing care as good and the doctors so concerned and caring. What could be the reason . Is itr only corruptionn or any thing else . Let us introspect and if possible (??) correct. Self aggrandaisement, craving for recognition go away with time and swept away by death. It is not only machines in medical practice but the hearts behind these machines are very important , who is misguiding our medical caree system. Is it the doctors themselves?, The Polity ?, The beurocracy ?, the legal system? or what else. Why we can not live up to our patient's expectations, or do we think they expect more ????

Hi Doctor, I am a 22 year old female and I have my SSB next month for the Indian Airforce. Being a pilot has always been my dream. I am 157 cms now and I need to be 162.5 cms. Is there anyway I can increase my height now? And what kind of food should I consume which provides me with proteins for height growth?

Respect nature and be happy with what nature (God) bestowed on you. Not many are as lucky as you are. Nothing increases height, there are some surgical technics which will entice you but do not go for them. Enjoy life with the limited resources that are available. Make maximum use of them. All the best and God bless you (if you believe)
