Counseling and psychotherapy for children and adolescents.
We help Children and adolescents who encounters emotional and behavioral problems such as anxieties, social phobia, school phobia, examination phobia and other specific phobias, temper tantrums, depression, oppositional disorders, children in conflict with others, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, conduct disorders, bedwetting, stammering, thump sucking; nail biting and other habitual and impulse control disorders, school refusals, acute stress reactions, children in crisis, etc.
Another area where children need psychological help is in academics. It is our belief that if children are backward in studies it is due to the reasons that are beyond their control such as low level of intellectual functioning, specific developmental disorders of scholastic skills (dyslexia), emotional problems such as fear of teachers, aversion developed towards specific subjects, poor study habits, low motivation, unhealthy family environments and children reacting to parents by not studying, etc. As part of helping children with problems in academics, we engage in assessments such as of intelligence, screening for dyslexia, aptitude tests, exploring emotional and family related concerns, etc. and provide appropriate interventions.
Remedial Teaching for children with Learning Disabilities
We provide individualized remedial teaching for children with specific developmental disorders of scholastic skills. Remedial teaching starts with letter sound associations in each language.
Along with the individual remedial teaching to students parents are also given training in continuing with the remedial teaching at home.
The giftedness of each child is explored and encouraged.
Some of our children end up in professional education and occupations that are not appropriate for their level of intellectual functioning, aptitudes, interests and career beliefs. Career guidance aims at person – profession match.
Individual counseling/ Psychotherapy for the adults, couples and families
Individual counseling is provided for adults with emotional problems, personality disorders, relational problems, and adjustment problems.
