Within my practice I can offer you the correct environment where I can meet your needs with the issues you present with. We can review frequently to see how you are progressing and it is important for you to realize that you are in control of these counselling sessions. I have worked with clients within a wide range of settings where appointments were limited; I see clients with general life issues, people who works in Multi National Companies and other career issues and so on... to the present with private practice. I have studied and worked successfully with the Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Based Program, which deals with Anxiety, Self-esteem, Depression, Relationship issues and Career choices as well as individual and couple counselling. I also have a Diploma in Counselling skills. Within this qualification I have worked with different kinds of patients and their families and have developed a deep understanding to the surrounding issues. Some have been known to admit that they feel totally changed and not at all ‘normal’ inside. This can be a hard time particularly when there is a realization that it isn’t easy to move on. It is not a sign of failure to feel like this and with the reassurance and help of counselling, allowance of the vulnerability that was felt during the treatment is able to emerge. From this it is possible to make more sense of the experience and be able to move forward once more.

Physical Health & Mental Health - Understanding The Connection!

Physical Health & Mental Health - Understanding The Connection!

You probably have heard of the saying “A healthy mind comes from a healthy body”. Most often in our daily busy schedule we overlook our eating habits, and physical activity. Are they linked with each other? The answer is YES! There are multiple associations between mental health and chronic physical conditions that significantly impact people’s quality of life. “there is no health without mental health.” The associations between mental and physical health are:

  1. Poor mental health is a risk factor for chronic physical conditions.

  2. People with serious mental health conditions are at high risk of experiencing chronic physical conditions.

  3. People with chronic physical conditions are at risk of developing poor mental health.

Mental health plays a major role in your ability to maintain good physical health. Mental illnesses, such as depression and anxiety, affect your ability to participate in healthy behaviors. This can result in problems with physical health, such as chronic diseases, and can decrease a person’s ability to participate in treatment and recovery. Unfortunately, most people don’t go to a mental health professional for a mental health exam. In many cases, people only seek out a mental health professional after a crisis has occurred. 

There are different ways to balance your mental and Physical health both: One of the most impactful way is :Mindfulness”

 What exactly is mindfulness, and how can it improve psychological well-being?

"Mindfulness is about being fully aware in the present moment,". "It's about bringing our attention back to the present moment and not getting carried away by our thoughts."Mindfulness helps to train individuals in bringing back the attention time and time again when it has wandered. And it is precisely through helping individuals to not get carried away by their thoughts that mindfulness has been shown to be so effective for conditions like anxiety and depression.

“It's not about getting good at meditation, it's about getting good at life.” And how its helps deepens our connections with others and with the world around us.

Some simple steps to reduce risk of physical illness: 
Eat a well-balanced diet, get plenty of rest, get routine check-ups and tests, incorporate regular exercise into your schedule. 

Some of the other ways to keep you mentally healthy are:

  1. Value yourself: Treat yourself with kindness and respect, and avoid self-criticism. Make time for your hobbies and favorite projects, or broaden your horizons
  2. Take care of your body: Taking care of yourself physically can improve your mental health, therefore, you must ensure 
    • Eat nutritious meals
    • Avoid cigarettes
    • Drink plenty of water
    • Exercise, which helps decrease depression and anxiety and improve moods
    • Get enough sleep as researchers believe that lack of sleep contributes to a high rate of depression in college students
  3. Surround yourself with good people: People with strong family or social connections are generally healthier than those who lack a support network. Make plans with supportive family members and friends, or seek out activities where you can meet new people, such as a club, class or support group.
  4. Learn how to deal with stressLike it or not, stress is a part of life. Practice good coping skills: Try One-Minute Stress Strategies, do Tai Chi, exercise, take a nature walk, play with your pet or try journal writing as a stress reducer. Also, remember to smile and see the humor in life. Research shows that laughter can boost your immune system, ease pain, relax your body and reduce stress.
  5. Quiet your mind: Try meditating, Mindfulness. Relaxation exercises can improve your state of mind and outlook on life. In fact, research shows that meditation may help you feel calm and enhance the effects of therapy.
  6. Get help when you need it: Seeking help is a sign of strength — not a weakness. And it is important to remember that treatment is effective. People who get appropriate care can recover from mental illness and addiction and lead full, rewarding lives.

Hear your inner voice and accept that you need help. Just like how we most the people go to the doctor and get a check-up. They have their blood pressure, temperature and weight measured. They have blood drawn to check for issues with cholesterol, blood sugars, thyroid, iron levels, and other measures for their physical health check up. Like wise it’s equally important to take care of your mental health.

Cultural Differences - How To Deal With It?

Cultural Differences - How To Deal With It?

When you are in love with someone it feels like everything is just beautiful and you are excited to know about the other person. Have you known someone who constantly brings up their culture background and use it as a justification for their behavior (In our culture we don’t do this etc..). These various influences can sometimes create challenges in intimate relationships with a person from a different cultural background. For that matter, even couples from seemingly similar cultures may still have some navigate differences.

In my experience I have seen couples who struggle mainly because of the differences in their culture both in love and arrange marriages. In my opinion there are few things that can probably help to deal with these challenges

  • Understand and Explore: Celebrate the festivities unique to your partner’s homeland or religious tradition. Spend time getting to know his/her family. Relish the foods from your partner’s native country. You don’t necessarily have to adopt all of your significant other’s cultural practices. However, willingness to understand your partner’s culture demonstrates love and respect. The more you know the difference the better it is in future.
  • Respect Differences: Legitimate cultural differences exist and should not be glossed over; however, neither should these differences be blown out of proportion. If and when differing perspectives arise, seek to understand, rather than to judge.
  • Look for Commonalities: While it is important to be aware of culture differences, also look for common ground. Identify similar values, preferences and interests. You don’t have to share everything with your partner; however, sharing certain core values (such as honesty, hard work, Respect etc.) can help reduce tension in your relationship.
  • Keep What Matters Most to You: While understanding your partner’s culture is important, you shouldn’t feel pressured to discard cherished parts of your own cultural traditions. Inter-cultural relationships require compromise but should not force one party to abandon core parts of his/her identity.

Don’t Make Assumptions

You may be dating someone from a traditionally reserved culture; however, your partner may actually be quite extroverted. Don’t let cultural stereotypes dictate your understanding of your partner. Instead, let direct knowledge of your partner (his/her personality and opinions) inform your understanding. Additionally, some aspects of your partner’s cultural identity may be more (or less) important to him/her, so learn what matters most to your partner. Carefully discuss any expectations for the relationship and/or marriage that may be influenced by your upbringing; these factors may include perspectives on gender roles, intimacy, finances and the holidays.

One of the most important aspect of the culture differences comes to the planning of the future if this is discussed before you most likely won’t end up in the differences of opinion too often

Plan for the Future
Cultural differences often become more acute when it comes to getting  married or having children. Once a relationship becomes serious, you may have to make important decisions about where the wedding will be held, if/where you will worship and how your children will be raised Cultural differences can also affect parenting decisions such as discipline, helping your child define and understand his/her cultural identity and what language(s) will be spoken in the home.

Our culture is part of our worldview—and our worldview influences how we see everything, including relationships. Loving your partner means loving him/him for who he or she is and culture is a distinct part of that. While cultural differences can introduce certain challenges, these challenges are certainly manageable within the context of respectful and supportive relationships.

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

Dear Lybrate user, I can understand how it brothers you to see your lip color are darker although you don't have any smoking habits. I would recommend you not to get conscious about that and just accept the way you are. If you try harder you would likely to develop self esteem issues. There are so many remedies which you can only try like 1: apply toothpaste and brush your lips too. 2: Make a paste of brown sugar and honey scrub it twice a week. Your lip color might improve or remain natural. Don't worry I'm sure you are good naturally just love the way you are and remain confident! hope this helps have a good day. :)

I did all tests all normal barring triglycerides which fluctuates. Precisely I am becoming more anxious and tensed with this. After taking bp medicines its all become like this?

Dear Lybrate user, I understand how you become anxious when it comes to your health. At it takes lot of courage to go back to healthy lifestyle and giving up or reducing smoke. Smoking doesn't really have any physical withdrawal symptoms those are all myth. It only makes you feel insecure and empty when you doesn't smoke coz you are addicted to Nicotinic. Most of the issue you are facing is due to anxiety if you can cope up and learn to deal with it you will feel fine. I would recommend you to go seek a counselor or a clinical psychologist to feel better. Hope this helps have a good day. :)

Dear Lybrate user: Anxiety medications have their place. Prescription medications are effective last resorts, they're acceptable in combination with psychotherapy. But on their own, medicine becomes a crutch - something you rely on to cure your anxiety without actually making it possible to control your anxiety. When you say within in a month it sounds like that month is really important for you to not have anxiety and that might be causing you more anxiety. In terms of controlling withdrawal symptoms I recommend you to seek a clinical Psychologist and resolve the underline issues for what causing you anxiety at the first place. Hope you feel better soon. Take care.

Hi lybrate-user. Brahmi and Ashwagandha both have its own benefits but for different purposes like for example: Brahmi: Potential therapy for chronic discomfort and neuropathy, memory enhancer, aphrodisiac, and general tonic, Stress reduction, short attention span, foggy memory, and blurred focus. Wherein, Ashwagandaha is for Generalized Anxiety Disorder which is again related to stress, weakness and to gain weight. The Term Generalized Social Anxiety is overall different in psychology: Its important to understand the symptoms of what makes you say that you are suffering from Social Anxiety. Emotional signs and symptoms Excessive self-consciousness and anxiety in everyday social situations Intense worry for days, weeks, or even months before an upcoming social situation Extreme fear of being watched or judged by others, especially people you don't know Fear that you'll act in ways that will embarrass or humiliate yourself Fear that others will notice that you're nervous Physical signs and symptoms Red face, or blushing Shortness of breath Upset stomach, nausea (i.e. Butterflies) Trembling or shaking (including shaky voice) Racing heart or tightness in chest Sweating or hot flashes Feeling dizzy or faint Behavioral signs and symptoms Avoiding social situations to a degree that limits your activities or disrupts your life Staying quiet or hiding in the background in order to escape notice and embarrassment A need to always bring a buddy along with you wherever you go Drinking before social situations in order to soothe your nerves Now Generalised Anxiety is different from Social Anxiety. Here are the symptom: Excessive, ongoing worry and tension An unrealistic view of problems Restlessness or a feeling of being "edgy" Irritability Muscle tension Headaches Sweating Difficulty concentrating Nausea The need to go to the bathroom frequently Tiredness Trouble falling or staying asleep Trembling Being easily startled To answer your question. Bhrami and Ashwangadha will not really help you if you have Social Anxiety or Generalised Anxiety. Reason being it will not change your thought process. Those are only good from a perspective of keeping your Body healthy. Please identify to your symptoms and visit a counselor near you. I hope this helped. Take care.

I usually have a high heartbeat rate and I also fell anxiety attack. What should i do?
Hello. Mostly anxiety comes from something the triggers. That would make you feel anxious and symptoms like rapid heartbeat, it effects your thought process too. What I would recommend is to stay with your anxiety and remind yourself that its just a thought. Once you feel that you are in a position to think rational take couple of deep breaths. Work on your triggers by seeing a counselor or a clinical psychologist. I hope you feel better soon.
