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 Privilege of Hustle

Hello From The Thought Co. Mental Health Awareness Therapy

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.

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...

2020 Ends, But The Anxiety Continues

A new year always brings about a promise of new beginnings and escaping the past. Most of us are hoping and praying that while we leave 2020 behind, we also leave COVID19 and the stress of it behind with it. It’s fun to think about next year being as normal as 2019. With no masks, no need for sanitisers, attending concerts and parties with 100+ people, and the whole world to travel! However, the hard hitting truth that many of us would not like to imagine is that 2020 might end, the virus might not.. and the anxiety and stress...
