Affirmative, Relational, Experiential
Individual therapy is a non-judgmental affirmative space for dialog and exploration – for you to reflect on and unravel your thoughts, feelings, emotional, behavioral and life experiences. We believe mental health and well-being is inter-sectional and deeply dependent on social realities. We are therefore firmly aligned with the principles of social justice and aim to advance therapy & healing for marginalized & vulnerable communities.
Process is the most important part of journey
“We believe that every individual’s life journey and lived experience is unique and therefore warrant a tailored approach in therapy and require to be firmly grounded in the socio-cultural context and environmental realities that an individual comes from”
Support, Solidarity, Togetherness
Our groups function as communities designed to hold space and enable healing as well as encourage sharing of similar or common life experiences.The group often transforms as the anchor for the adoption and practice of new habits and thought processes, offering insights, perspective and potentially transformative experiences.
Culturally sensitive, Reparative, Transformative
Relationship therapy aims to support partners in being the best versions of themselves within the context of their relationship. We look at a therapeutic framework that involves individual partner interviews, strengths and pain-points, repairing hurt and building intimacy, friendship and empathetic understanding.
Introducing the INDIAN Wheel of Power and Powerlessness!
The Wheel of Power/Privilege is an instrument that gives a comprehensive and intersectional view of how power and privilege come to exist in social structures and how we navigate these power structures in a relational manner. It has many versions being used by mental health professionals, social workers, educators and other individuals all over the world.
However, we identified the need for a comprehensive version, which is centered in the Indian sociocultural context and which captures the experiences of power and powerlessness of people living all over India.
To strengthen it, we have collaborated with mental health professionals, subject matter experts and people with lived experience, to review the positioning across the different social identities, and develop this tool.
To even build a comprehensive picture of intersectionality, we first need to understand how it functions within the domain of power and powerlessness, how it works within the day-to-day politics of everyday life and from there crystallizes in often unfruitful but sometimes productive policy formulation. This piece employs the recent policy proposition to subcategorize trans-individuals under the 'Other Backward Classes' category; as an example to shed light on the need for a comprehensive understanding of intersectional approaches in policy formulation.
We are prototyping a peer review and continued education model for mental health professionals – think your local pub/ coffee shop and free flowing conversation, only more academic.
