What My Therapist Taught Me About Being A Therapist

“One thing I’ve realised in this process of therapy, is that one should really want to change, why else would we pay as well as experience the discomfort of going through it all? Therapy is not a very comfortable process!” I may have felt myself cringe when I heard my friend say this, but I'd be lying if I said that I didn’t relate with the statement. As a therapist, seeking out my own therapist and enrolling for therapy was a rather difficult process for me (a nod to my ingrained stigmatisation of therapy). I took the route of “handling...

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.

The Privilege of Hustle

If you have seen motivational speakers talking about hustling and thought to yourself “Wow, their life is so great!”, you are not alone. We have all had days where we have seen people around us, felt envious about them hustling – while all we can do is barely focus on work for maybe a few hours. This could be because of various reasons, including just – surviving a pandemic. Most of us don’t have the mental capacity to work incessantly, while others are forced to work without stopping because that’s how they make a living and have a roof above...

NoMoPhobia

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. And this feeling of being connected, being in the now and of being everywhere all at once can be empowering, but sometimes, even addictive. When its presence becomes addictive, its absence creates anxiety…And this is exactly what NoMoPhobia is
