Q. What to Expect From Counseling?

Any emotional problem or difficulty has its roots in our inner nature. Our feelings depend on how we think about ourselves, others and our situations. Often we think in ways that are not rational or we think about situations mistakenly.

Q. Is counselling for psychologically ill people or those with mental disorders? If I require counseling, does that mean I’m not “normal?”

Requiring counseling simply means you are perhaps in a situation, which may be an external or internal situation, where you are confused and d .....

Q. I'm a mother of a 5 years old child. My child doesn't communicate; even she don't utter a single word. She doesn't smile nor she understand her hunger, thirst etc. She use to stay alone in her own world. She also even don't mix up with other children of her age. I have visited to child specialist but they are saying my child is not normal. What to do now? As after this my husband want me to divorce as he thinks that my child is not normal is just because of me. What to do now?

First of all, be calm. Your child is not abnormal, it's just she needs help. Sometime due to fixation child gets into stress, which makes her occupied with her own thoughts.

I advice you .....

Q. I'm 22 years old male, basically from a middle-class family. I am a student of B.Com final year and am an average student. For last six month my life is not running smooth. It has changed suddenly. I had a girlfriend. I really loved her a lot even still now I love her. But six months before I have caught her in a movie Hall with another one guy. Then I came in front of her in the parking area and found she was behaving differently with me. That boy also abused me, I loosed my temper and slapped and have slapped her as well. Before this incident, I haven't loose my mind like this, but I'm not feeling any guilt by slapping both of them at that time. That day after the fight she has accepted that that boy is her boyfriend and also threaten me by saying that the boy has some political connection so I should keep distance. I loose my mind again as it directly hit on my ego and again mess up with that boy. But I was alone in front of his gang of five boys; so beaten up badly and was hospitalised after a good fight. I couldn't reveal my original incident to my parents; I lied to my parents. But I'm trying to control myself, not able to forget her. Out of my control I have called my ex-girlfriend many times but she gave me a very cold reply. I miss her a lot, I miss her love and care towards me. I want to be happy again in my life but don't know how?? I feel cheated, rejected, lonely. Tried to divert my mind from the thoughts of my ex but I couldn't. I have changed my routine, changed my target, have started preparing for civil services but still not able to concentrate. Her thoughts are coming into my mind again and over again. Help me, please.

Hello dear!! I can understand the pain you are going through. Your love hasn't weakened you mentally even physically too. First of All, I m happy to that you we're loyal in this relationship but tell Me, can you force anyone to love you??? I know it's easy for me to say you the same because I'm not at your place( Bolna Asaan h ) But brother, going after a thing who doesn .....

Q. I have two children. I'm married for last eight years. My elder daughter is in trouble. She is being molested sexually by the flat gatekeeper a few months back. She is 7years old. From then only she has started staying aloof. She doesn't want to mix up with her peer group nor want to have food properly. She is not able to focus on her study. Her class teacher asks me to take her to a counselor. What should I do? Please do suggest me.
