Psychotherapy and Counseling
Psychotherapy is a psychological method to address and treat emotional and mental health problems and its impact on life, family and relationships. It’s also for self-improvement and to do what one does better. In other words, it may be a means for awareness, insight and personal growth.
Psychotherapy is not a therapy that is ‘done to you’ by someone else but is ‘done by you’. You play an active part with the therapist as a facilitator. The process can be empowering.
It involves talking to a professional, either one-to-one or in groups. Therapy aims to get a deeper understanding of thoughts, feelings, worries and disturbing behaviour with the intent of raising awareness and bringing about changes – from a less adaptive to a more adaptive state, as deemed desirable by the participant or client.
Dr Jain states, “Psychotherapy is much more than just listening and guiding and change. It’s about building trust and rekindling hope that life is fluid (and ever-changing) and that problems are an opportunity for transformation and psychological growth rather than a hindrance.”
Typically psychotherapy may be advised for depression, anxiety, stress-related issues, domestic and marital conflict, self-esteem and confidence issues, relationship and intimacy problems, relapse prevention, addiction and psychosomatic illness.
Depending on the presentation, therapy sessions are planned and conducted on an individual, couple, family or group basis.
Dr Jain offers an integrated psychotherapeutic approach combining Cognitive Behavioral, Motivational and Mindfulness-based therapies. He uses Freudian and Jungian psychoanalytical approaches to increase personal awareness, move toward mental balance and wholeness, and bring relief and meaning to psychological suffering. Psychotherapy aims to help you improve your life by allowing you to see it in a new way.
