Life’s challenges are on the increase and coping with these challenges, sometimes demands enormous effort. There are times when one may need help to deal with emotional distress. Even someone who has always been able to cope well, adapt to changing situations and survive, can be overcome by a sense of helplessness and loss. It can happen to any one of us at any time.
A counsellor at Parivarthan is someone who is there for the client as a facilitator for change, healing and growth. When a safe and trusting environment is provided, a client will discover within him/herself the capacity for growth and change. Counselling is a process of empowerment – helping individuals to be in charge of themselves and their relationships.
