What Lies Behind Your Outward Calm?

Discover 'mysteries' of your inner self and find solutions to your personal, family and workplace problems with the help of our psychologists.

Individual psychological treatment is often termed as individual counselling or psychotherapy, and is meant to help people with their emotional and behavioural issues, which can range in order of their severity or intensity. The main aim of this form of therapy is to bring change into one's quality of life by defining the path of life clearly, and bringing in more clarity. Whether it is the problem of repressed childhood that you are facing, or an emotional breakdown due to divorce, failure or loss of a loved one, a professional psychologist can help you revive your mental health through systematic counselling. There are many emotional issues that find a corner in our heart, and refuse to die down until we find help.

Left unattended to, with time, these issues can transform into a sort of "emotional tumor" that impacts negatively on our daily life, such as lack of concentration, enthusiasm, self respect, will to change, encouragement, and so on.

Wouldn't you rather seek help and live the life you were meant to live?

The fact is, this sister was having some real challenges and didn’t know what to do. Fortunately, one of the brethren, who was a Counselling Psychologist and heard the conversation, got in touch and scheduled a counselling session the next day. That was how a possible suicide case was averted.

by SENYO YAO ANIPA

With the pace of modern life seeming to increase every day, it is easy to suddenly find yourself feeling fatigued, drained and just plain run down. From working adults to young students, it is common to think that staying up later for just an hour or so is harmless. However, those extra hours of television watching, game playing or even working can add up and take their toll on our wellbeing.
