Do You Need Therapy?

Most of us face struggles at some point in our lives. These struggles may include stress at work, difficulty with a romantic partner, or problems with a family member. Alternatively, struggles may include emotional symptoms such as depression or anxiety, behavioral problems such as having difficulty throwing useless items away or drinking alcohol too often, and cognitive symptoms such as repetitive upsetting thoughts or uncontrolled worry. Sometimes, life's struggles can be eased by taking better care of yourself, and perhaps talking about the issues with a supportive friend or family member.

But there may be times when these steps don't resolve the issue. When this happens, it makes sense to consider seeking the help of a qualified licensed psychologist. How do you know if therapy is needed?

Two general guidelines can be helpful when considering whether you or someone you love could benefit from therapy. First, is the problem distressing? And second, is it interfering with some aspect of life?

When thinking about distress, here are some issues to consider:

  • Do you or someone close to you spend some amount of time every week thinking about the problem?
  • Is the problem embarrassing, to the point that you want to hide from others?
  • Over the past few months, has the problem reduced your quality of life?

When thinking about interference, some other issues may deserve consideration:

  • Does the problem take up considerable time (e.g., more than an hour per day)?
  • Have you curtailed your work or educational ambitions because of the problem?
  • Are you rearranging your lifestyle to accommodate the problem?

A “yes” response to any of these questions suggests that you might wish to consider seeking professional help. Remember that sometimes a problem might be less upsetting to you than it is to the people around you. This does not automatically mean that you are in the know and your friends or family are over-reacting to you. Rather, this situation suggests that you may wish to think about why the people who care about you are upset.

Clearly, the decision to enter into therapy is a very personal one. Numerous advances have been made in the treatment of psychological disorders in the past decade and many therapies have been shown scientifically to be helpful. As you think about whether therapy might be helpful to you, remember that many psychological problems have been shown to be treatable using short-term therapy approaches.

Learning more about different approaches to therapy might also help you to discern if one of them sounds like a good fit with your personality and approach to life. Given the range of therapeutic options that are available, you don't need to continue to struggle with a problem that is upsetting and/or getting in the way of other parts of your life. Help is available.

Relaxation Therapy

Relaxation Therapy
Relaxation techniques share two components: the repetitive focus (on a word, sound, prayer, phrase, body sensation, or muscular activity) and adoption of a passive attitude (towards intrusive thoughts.)
They induce relaxation response characterized by decreased arousal and diminished sympathetic activity (decreased heart rate and lower blood pressure) and increased EEG slow wave activity.
Relaxation techniques may be subdivided into two methods, deep and brief, or by the specific strategy used to induce the relaxed state, including progressive muscle relaxation, autogenic training and breath training.
Adverse reactions are intrusive thoughts, fear of losing control, upsetting sensory experiences, muscle cramps, sexual arousal and psychotic symptoms
Adverse reactions are relaxation–induced anxiety or relaxation-induced panic.
Relaxation–induced anxiety is a gradual increase in behavioral, physiologic, and psychological anxiety, whereas relaxation–induced panic is severe anxiety of rapid onset.
Patients with a history of generalized anxiety disorder or panic disorder and those with a history of hyperventilation are more likely to experience these adverse effects.
Patients should also be introduced to deep breathing techniques that often accompany relaxation in a gradual manner and not more than couple of minutes at a time.
Relaxation techniques can relieve pain in cancer

Raisins Therapy

M.Phil - Clinical Psychology
Psychologist, Moradabad

First, we should know about mindfulness, mindfulness is a way of paying attention in present moments. This moment experience by yourself, your own body, your sensation occurs moment by moment. It may be an awareness of your emotions and thoughts that what is the moment around you.

It is the deep relaxation therapy which relaxes and aware your body from head to toe. It called a mindfulness therapy. One part of this is raisin therapy, which is mentioned here today.

Raisins mean in hindi is kishmish which is a dry fruit. How is it working to reduce anxiety and stress, a dry fruit? you ever know about this therapy. No, because we live in multitasking life and eating… disturbed eating also has a part of disturbed life. Doctors say keep a balanced diet. How can we make our diet balanced? if we take balanced diet we make yourself fit. But another side, we unable to take balanced diet we are ill. Because we eat food with stress.

This therapy works on our 5 sensations.

1. Vision

2. Touch

3. Smell

4. Taste

5. Hear

How do we practice on raisin meditation?

First, find a quiet place with dim light in the background and sit down and relax. You might find taking a deep breath… close your eyes and inhale breath by nose and exhaling by mouth. It should be 4-5 times. And open your eyes. Then start the therapy. 

look at the raisin- there are some raisins in front of you, do not eat them unless I say. You just must see. What is the color of the raisin to see, how is it to look without hands? how is its texture? there should not be any thought in this time, just think of watching the raisin, about its texture.


  • Touch the raisin- now, touch the raisins, gently lift them in your hands, feel through your hands, its softness.
  • Smell the raisin- 3rd step is smell, take the raisin slowly near your nose and feel its soothing scent.
  • Taste the raisin- 4th step is taste, put the raisin on your lip and feel his softness with your lip. Now, place the raisins in your mouth and move around in your mouth. Don’t chew yet, spends some time concentrating on how the raisin feels on your tongue. Now, chew them lightly with your teeth, take the juice of raisins.
  • Hear the chew raisin- when you are chewing raisin, feel its chewing sound. Try to listen.

There are many benefits to doing this therapy:

  • You will never grow stomach
  • You can use any small fruit, not only raisins with this therapy.
  • You can also do it with tea or coffee.
  • You can do it anywhere but there should be a peaceful atmosphere if you have trouble paying attention
  • If your attention is fine then you can do it in the park or even in your room.
  • It also cures your concentration problem
  • Important thing, when you are doing this therapy, then your concentration will be only on the raisin and you will not go to any other things or negative thoughts.
  • Benefits of raisins during pregnancy is the must. Raisins are a big source of iron and fibres. Hence, they help to fight anaemia and constipation, which usually occur during pregnancy.
  • They also help with menstrual disorders. Usually, women face menstrual disorders like pain and excessive bleeding. Iron deficiency anaemia surfaces when there is increased menstrual bleeding. Consumption of raisins helps with menstruation problems.
