Counselling & psychotherapy

Prafulta offers INDIVIDUAL, GROUP AND FAMILY COUNSELLING to facilitate those who require assistance to cope with and successfully resolve the problems they face in everyday life.

What is counselling all about?

Counselling is a healthy way to handle emotional baggage and live meaningful and fulfilled lives. Since our emotional baggage is accumulated over a period of time, it also takes time to deal with these unresolved emotions. Counselling is thus not a miracle, but a process that requires a few sessions (each session is approximately 50 minutes) and some period of time to become aware of our behaviour patterns and work out healthier and happier ways of living.

Is counselling just like advice giving?

Counselling is not advice giving. Trained counsellor’s help you clarify values, goals, explore the meaning and purpose of life, connect with your passion and create a life that is deeply satisfying and meaningful. The counsellor, in this case, is more like a mentor or coach on the road of life.

How safe is it to talk to a counsellor?

Professional counselling is a confidential process. Our counsellors ensure that what is shared by an individual during a session is not disclosed to anyone else.

What kind of issues does counselling address?

  • Parenting (academic and learning problems in children, thumb sucking, bedwetting, peer pressure, anger and aggressive behaviour, shyness, etc)
  • Stress management
  • Family and relationship difficulties
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Addictions (alcohol, drugs, tobacco, compulsive eating, etc)
  • Effects of trauma and abuse (physical violence, sexual abuse)
