What is therapy?
Therapy is a time and space for you to talk about whatever is troubling you. Therapist creates safer, confidential and non-judgmental relationships in which you can share and talk freely. The therapist’s role is to work alongside you to help you make sense of your issues. Number and frequency of the therapist sessions depends on the severity of the problem. Minimum it takes more than an hour to just discuss and understand the issue.
How do I know therapy is for me?
If you’re struggling with something, whether you know what it is or not, speaking with a therapist can give you the ways and methods you need to move on and start feeling better. No matter what your personal background, age or gender is, therapy can be a life-changing experience and is the ultimate investment in your own well-being: our team of therapist will discuss how you’re feeling and can help you survive through what you’re going through.
I’ve never seen a therapist before, does that matter?
Whether you’ve seen a therapist before or this is your first time, it doesn’t matter. Therapist takes time to get to know you, and understand the issues you’re going through, so they can provide you with the best possible help in making positive changes. ReachOutLife will always make sure you know what to expect from our therapy sessions, so you can focus on feeling better, rather than worrying about what’s supposed to happen next.
How many therapy sessions will I need?
In your first session, your therapist will draw up a schedule of meetings for you to follow, the length of which will largely depend on what it is you’re going through. ReachOutLife suggest regular on-going sessions with your therapist to attain long term relief. Emotional and psychological issues can rarely be worked in a single session and is not a quick-way action.
What can I expect from my therapist?
ReachOutLife therapist are specialized consultants in their field and will always treat you, and your feelings, with dignity and respect and are committed to keep it confidential.
Your therapy sessions will be held in a peaceful and non-judgmental environment where you will feel free to truly express yourself. Therapist will be the only person available during your therapy session. Official timings of meeting a therapist will be from 10 AM to 6 PM only. Rest, it depends on therapist and nature of problem to mutually decide the timings. A therapist will never force you to do anything you are uncomfortable with. You can always say no. Therapist will not give answers to your problems rather they will make suggestions and introduce you to different ways of looking at things and can help you solve the problems. Therapist relationship with you will be strictly professional.
All the data, discussion, meetings and solutions will be confidential and can be only shared to third party where your therapist feel that you are at harm of hurting yourself or others. In case of minors, the parents will be kept in loop and or nominated guardians.
When will i start to feel better?
You may find that you feel an initial sense of relief after sharing your situation with the therapist. Many people begin to notice positive changes in their thoughts, feelings, and behavior after 8 or 10 therapy sessions. Issues and problems which are more complex or have been going on for a long time will take longer to resolve.
As counseling can involve talking about painful memories and difficult emotions, you may feel vulnerable at times during counseling. This is a normal part of the healing process – painful emotions often need to be expressed and experienced before they can be resolved. Your therapist will discuss with you the ways of taking care of yourself at these times.
Most of the people asked that even after following their daily routine why they feel stressed?
Stress to a certain level is normal. The moment it starts taking a toll on your normal routine, hampers your daily life and work; then it is a problematic issue.
Certain things can be handed at your end like:
- Start your day with a healthy breakfast and never skip it.
- Spend 10min of your day to make a list of “Things to do”.
- Take deep breaths whenever you feel stressed.
- Do not carry your work to home.
- Spend quality life with your family.
- Try to have at least dinner with your family.
If these things don’t help, then don’t delay in seeking professional advice.
My child is too hyper, i get constant reports from the school, does not co-operate with other students, talkative, and too naughty. Does not sit at one place, if the teacher tells him do the reading he stammers as he wants to read very fast… Please guide what should i do?
These are certain things you can do to control the hyperactivity of your child:
- Buy a puzzle and give him as a challenge.
- Create a game where you & everyone in the family participate in reading, create points for slow and clear reading, and write the mistakes committed by your child.
- Ensure that you also do some mistakes in the reading game in order to maintain interest of your child.
- Start a story telling session. It should be slow and keep making it interesting & always end with the moral and the learning.
It will not change overnight please have patience.
Still if things don’t workout then please do seek professional help.
Thank you for asking your problems.

Why after facing certain incidents and situations some people become silent? And the family members are so busy to not notice this, as everyone is busy in their own battle of life.
Speech is silver and silence is golden. But this does not work in such cases. According to the Psychological research and the cases we have handled at ReachOutLife, being silent in such cases is an indication of some bigger psychological problems.
If you ever notice this problem in your family, whether in a child or in an adult please do seek Psychological help before the problem gets bigger and out of control.
Most of the times we get very tensed and don’t even realize it… the result of which is, that we start taking out our anger and frustration on our spouse and kids at times even on our parents. What should we do in this type of scenario? Please help?

Step 1. Is to realize that you are stressed.
Step2. Take a deep breath.

Had a break up! Was going through hell; my life has topsy turvied. It’s all a set of mixed emotions, sometimes i cry when i have to laugh, laugh when i have to cry. I feel very frustrated, get irritable on trivial matters. Don’t know what i am going through… Friends say move on, let’s find a new mate/date. But i am unable to control and handle myself. Cannot handle the normal work, work pressure is far away. Don’t know how to express my problem. People near me don’t seem to understand. Please guide me what to do… I am in a mess; don’t know what to do?
Please don’t get hassled. At times everyone faces problems in their life. You are not alone. Just try to understand that when any relationship breaks both the parties get hurt.
Relax and think, it was better to move out of the relationship that was not working out for both of you.
Understand one person cannot make the relationship work.
It’s a range of mixed emotions that you are going through. Everybody at the time of break-up goes through this range of emotions, and self-denial. What is important is, is to hang on!
Never be on a look out for the mate/date right after the break up because first you need to catch up with yourself. Learn to control yourself, your emotions and then think about a serious relationship.
Do hangout in a company of your positive and supportive friends and group.
Never resort to alternatives like Drinks or smoking or drugs, best company is your friends and family.
Take their support and if still you feel overwhelmed then please don’t delay and seek a professional support.
Autism, if diagnosed at an early childhood stage can be treated with psychotherapy and counseling. Don’t ignore it. Always remember to take 2-3 opinions of professionals.

A psychologist can use various tools like CBT and other BMT to bring about a positive change in your child’s behavior.
Kindly don’t delay, and consult a professional.
