Psychotherapy consists of a group of techniques for treating mental health, emotional and some psychiatric disorders. Challenges in our lives may lead to depression, anxiety, isolation and other health problems. One can explore one’s alternatives, build on his/her strengths, and develop new skills through counseling. One can cope more easily with challenges faced in life if one can identify one’s feelings and ways of thinking.

“Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It is meditation.”…Jonathan Haidt
If one is feeling at peace, then one’s ability to face and deal with life’s challenges increases.
Meditation can give one a sense of balance that benefits both one’s physical and emotional well-being. Research shows that these benefits continue even after a meditation session ends. If one is feeling at peace, then one’s ability to face and deal with life’s challenges increases. Some research suggests that meditation may help conditions such as: allergies, anxiety disorders, asthma, binge eating, cancer, depression, fatigue, heart disease, high blood pressure, pain, sleep problems, and substance abuse.
“Meditational practices are an excellent method to deal with emotional issues, phobias and relationship conflicts which are hidden in the usually inaccessible recesses of the unconscious part of the mind. Each person can become his own psychoanalyst. Once the problems are recognized, they can be addressed, by autosuggestions and by the system of psychological and yogic desensitization. As these problems are progressively addressed, one’s life will simultaneously undergo a transformation towards integration and happiness.”….Satyananda Saraswati
“Gus’s scans showed that it takes less than two months to alter the overall neural functioning of the brain. This is amazing because it demonstrates that we have the power to consciously change our brains, and improve our neural functioning, in far less time than scientists used to think… we can see permanent changes in single neurons in a matter of days, and as other studies have shown, most forms of meditation will create subtle but significant changes in a couple of months.”…Andrew Newberg & Mark Robert Waldman
“Questioning the meaning of life is not neurotic, it is a human achievement. The ‘pursuit of happiness’ and ‘personal gain’ (wealth, power) will ultimately fail. We always want MORE!” …Frankl
Mindfulness reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help you break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion.
“Mindfulness is about observation without criticism; being compassionate with yourself. When unhappiness or stress hover overhead, rather than taking it all personally, you learn to treat them as if they were black clouds in the sky, and to observe them with friendly curiosity as they drift past. In essence, mindfulness allows you to catch negative thought patterns before they tip you into a downward spiral. It begins the process of putting you back in control of your life.” Penman D. With practice of mindfulness, practitioners learn to slow down brain chatter and automatic or habitual reactions, experiencing the present moment as it really is. Several studies have found that mindfulness increases positive emotions while reducing negative emotions and stress. Research also shows that mindfulness is helpful in reducing anxiety, depression and exhaustion, improving working memory, creativity, attention span and reaction speeds, enhancing brain function, improving sleep quality and improving immune system, heart and circulatory health. It can make your grades better and it can help you be better at your job.
“MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression. In simple English, ‘it works.’ But more importantly, it also works for the rest of us who aren’t depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the relentless demands of the modern world. In short, Mindfulness helps you meet the worst that life throws at you with renewed courage.” Penman, D
Life can be relentless, frantic and exhausting – but it doesn’t have to be this way… Mindfulness can change the banter inside our heads from chaotic to calm.
BREATHING EXERCISES (BREATHWORK):
Focusing on your own breathing can have a significant impact on your well-being.
Breathing strongly influences physiology and thought processes, including moods. By understanding the very direct relationship between your breath and your brain and nervous system, you have a useful tool that can help you achieve and maintain a more balanced, positive, stress-free inner and outer life. After all, if you are feeling calm and centered, then your ability to solve problems, think more creatively and cope with the outer world is enhanced. It improves respiratory and cardiovascular function and improves physical and mental health.
“Breathing exercises have been shown to positively affect immune function, hypertension, asthma, autonomic nervous system imbalances, and psychological or stress-related disorders.” …Jerath
“The research is very clear that breathing exercises can enhance parasympathetic (inhibit neural responses) tone, decrease sympathetic (excitatory) nervous activity, improve respiratory and cardiovascular function, decrease the effects of stress, and improve physical and mental health”. …Pal, Velkumary, & Madanmohan
It is used to improve one’s overall health and is different from “stage hypnosis” used by entertainers.
Hypnosis is usually considered an aid to psychotherapy, rather than a treatment in itself. It is used to improve one’s overall health and is different from “stage hypnosis” used by entertainers. No one can hypnotize one against their will. It is used to control addictions to drugs, alcohol, smoking, and food. It may help with anxiety, insomnia, phobias, asthma, irritable bowel syndrome and obesity. Research has also found that it can reduce cancer-related pain, labor pain, nausea, and vomiting.
“Most people walk through the word in a trance of disempowerment. Our work is to transform that into a trance of empowerment.” …Dr. Milton H. Erickson
It is like a gym for your brain, and the training promotes positive change and growth at the neurological level of the brain.
In the 21st century, there has been a change in the way people take care of themselves, and many are taking a more proactive role in managing their health for their own overall well-being. Neurofeedback enhances these efforts to increase physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual wellness. It is a safe, natural, comfortable, effortless, enjoyable, drug-free, and non-invasive approach to help one use his/her brain and central nervous system to make quick, positive, long-lasting changes in his/her life. Neurofeedback is a more advanced branch of biofeedback that focuses on the brain and central nervous system. People using neurofeedback have experienced relief from: Anxiety, depression, ADHD, bipolar disorder, autism, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), sleep problems, chronic pain, learning disabilities, anger, cognitive impairment, epilepsy, and migraines/headaches. Also, students, business professionals, musicians, and athletes have used neurofeedback to improve mental and physical performance.
Neurofeedback meets the American Association of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s criteria for ‘Clinical Guidelines’ for the treatment of ADHD, seizure disorders, depression, reading disabilities, addictive disorders, and anxiety (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, phobias).
Research findings indicate that people with ADHD have an excess of theta brain waves and fewer than average beta brain waves. Researchers that support using neurofeedback to treat ADHD believe that neurofeedback training decreases theta brain waves while increasing beta brain waves; therefore, decreasing ADHD symptoms by increasing arousal.
