Veena Chakravarthy - Psychologist/Psychotherapist/Neuropsychologist & Counsellor
There is no clear cut distinction between a counsellor and psychotherapist. A counsellor listens to the clients,offers suggestions, feedbacks,and understanding. Counsellors help people to explore their feelings so they can reflect upon their life happenings and understand themselves and the situation better. They offer time, help, empathy and respect which the clients require in order to express their feelings and understand themselves from a different perspective.Counsellors suggest strategies to help the clients improve their perspective and behavior and thus better their life. They empower their clients by teaching them coping skills.
Across most areas of counselling, the counsellor establishes trust and respect with the client. Ecourages the client to speak openly about their issues, listen attentively and offer suggestions and help wherever required. Counsellors actively listen to the clients concern and empathise with their position.Counsellors are not judgemental and accept the issue of the clients without bias, they challenge the inconsistencies of the clients' words, thoughts and actions and thereby lead them to a deeper understanding of self.
