Therapy & Internal Growth

Having one too many clients allude to the movie “Dear Zindagi” insisting that I watch it, finally got me in front of the screen, mostly curious about the perspective on psychotherapy that it promotes. A full two-and-a-half-hours later I realized that as much as movies like “Dear Zindagi” shed light on the social and interpersonal dimensions of an individual’s journey they fall short in exploring the length and breath of the personal and individual experience of therapy and healing. Unlike what the movie portrays, all of our concerns cannot be dealt with that easily, sometimes it’s more than just one breakdown.

The Haunting of ... the Past

If you’ve watched the Netflix drama series The Haunting The Hill House or Bly Manor (the second series), by the end of the show, you might have already figured out that the show is more than just horror.

Nobody likes feeling disconnected, whether it’s from our friends, family, money, the news or even the most recent Instagram reels. Our cellphones are mediums that connect us to these things; the world is now literally in our palms.

Attachments Styles & Relationships

The minute we were born, our need for food, comfort and safety were catered for, making us completely dependent on our caregivers for survival. In fact, right from the beginning (even in utero!), we’ve been nurtured by our caregivers. Attachment is the emotional bond we share with another human. This bond is the foundation of our emotional health; and it lays the groundwork for all the valuable relationships in our life. John Bowlby developed ‘The Attachment Theory’, which traces the trial and tribulations of our adult relationships to the earliest experience of care. Bowlby said that children need to be...
