Online Counseling

Online counseling is a great way to get the professional help of a therapist to work on your difficulties, even when you physically cannot be present for a one-on-one counseling session.

Issues That Can be Dealt With via Online Counseling

Online Counseling can address a range of emotional and interpersonal issues, just like regular psychotherapy. Some of them are enlisted here to help you:

 Therapy with adults: This involves individual online sessions and can focus on difficulties such as depressionanxietysex-related concerns, psychosomatic disorders, eating disorders, body image issues, obsessive thoughts, excessive thinking and any other emotional, behavioural or interpersonal concern that you may have.

Premarital Counseling: The focus area here is specific issues, questions and anxieties you may have regarding marriage and the changes it entails. Knowing oneself and one’s partner better and having more aligned expectations can go a long way in setting the space for a loving relationship and reducing potential conflicts.

Therapy for Children:  Many children today face several stressors at home, school and with peers. Online counseling can help parents gain insight into the difficulties their child is facing and can equip them to work with the same. For a better idea, read our articles on parenting here. 

Perhaps you are a few hundred kilometers away or perhaps even a continent away, your distance does not stop you from choosing happier ways of thinking and living. We try and make the process of online counseling as smooth for you as possible.

Do you feel a sense of lack or dissatisfaction in life?

Sadia shares a mindful way to deal with this feeling of emptiness.

Marriage Counseling: The focus here is to address emotional/behavioural difficulties that may come up in one individual or both partners as a result of being in a marital relationship. The therapist will work with both partners in individual sessions and be a facilitator of the resolution process.

Sex Counseling: The focus area here is working with sexual difficulties that are arising due to psychological reasons. Since people do not easily speak of their sexual issues, online sex therapy can be a great way of getting perspective on your problem and addressing it healthily.

Therapy for Adolescents/Teens:  Adolescents especially take to online therapy very well, due to their familiarity with using the internet to exchange thoughts and feelings. Adolescence also is an age of turmoil where some empathy and help can be very powerful in realigning them with their life’s goals. The therapist may also involve parents in the discussion with the permission of the adolescent and can help allay parental anxieties that are at a peak during the child’s teenage years.

  3. I’m Sakshi Shah, a student of SIES college of Arts, Science and Commerce, Sion.
    I’m currently pursuing my bachelor’s degree specializing in Psychology. As a part of my degree program, I’m working on a research on ‘A survey of Attitudes of Mental Health Professionals in Mumbai towards Online Counseling.’
    The objective of my research is the fact that online counseling is an emerging field in India, with more and more counselors entering the virtual world for practising counselling and reaching out to more and more people with the help of an online medium. However, there are very few researches done in this field in India. Hence, I’m going to conduct a survey of mumbai- based Mental Health Professionals and for the same I would like to interview professionals working in your institution if given permission. Thanking you.

  15. Hi, I’m fourteen years old and I’ve lately been having a lot of problems having straight conversations with my parents. When we talk they usually get upset about my tone or the way I’m replying to them and it ends up in me crying in the confines of my bedroom.I’m having other issues too which I desperately want to find solutions too but I’m having a hard time talking to anyone. I hope you’ll can help me out?

  18. Dear Vinod,

    We understand that as a parent, your child’s functioning can be very confusing at times. Moreover, having to deal with academic concerns like going blank and the occasional confusion can be very overwhelming for your son.

    There could be several reasons underlying his difficulties. In some cases, children may experience some deep emotional concerns which are hard to express. These underlying emotional difficulties could manifest in terms of confusion, lack of interest in going to school, and so on. At times, children may have concerns in terms of their capacity to perform academically.

    To support your son further, we need identify what his concerns are, in a deeper light, and ways to help him manage the same. Counselling as a process could be helpful in this regard.

    We would like to support you via counselling. If you would like to know more or would like to book an appointment, please feel free to get in touch with us.

  19. Hi,
    I need your help to deal with an issue with my 7.6 years old son,

    1. He is obedient but very casual – I have no issue with it, but definitely his school teachers has.
    2. He is exceptional sometimes, he goes totally blank and confused sometimes. Example: he solves very difficult math problem with ease but there are some incidents where he totally gets confused between Addition ( + ) and ( – ).
    3. He will always be looking for holidays/offs from school.

    We asked teachers to help us from this, but they suggested to talk to some neurosurgeons, counselors etc, we couples are in big confusion whether to load the child with so many stuff at this age or seek help. Please help us.

    Best Regards

  20. I have been going through low self-esteem, difficult to express myself, bad relationship with wife, stress, anxiety and other issues. I want to know how psychotherapy will help me. Please send the fee structure and other necessary details.

  21. Dear Meenakshi,
    We understand that this is a very delicate and difficult time for you emotionally. It is indeed difficult to move on from a relationship that has been loving and nurturing. At the same time, you seem to have certain difficulties in your family that would make it difficult to take your relationship ahead.
    In such circumstances, it is useful to accept that this is genuinely going to be a difficult time. You would naturally be reminded of your partner and miss him. Accepting your emotions, instead of fighting them is usually the first step towards growth and recovery. That way, you would be nurturing and patient towards your emotions instead of wishing them away and pressurizing yourself.
    Asking yourself what really you want to do to help yourself feel better would also help. Usually, our mind does give us these suggestions, but we end up rejecting these suggestions because it seems too ineffective against the more overwhelming feeling of sadness. However, listen to yourself when these suggestions come up. Even if it is a small thing like going out on a walk, eating a wholesome meal, or a bigger step such as opening yourself up to change and growth, if you ask yourself in an open, accepting manner, some answers do come up that help you feel slightly better.

    If you think that this phase is too difficult for you to manage alone, and that some systematic and in-depth guidance in the form of counseling sessions would help, do write back or call us on 9833985538. We would be glad to support you through this.

    We sincerely wish you well.

  22. HII,
    i am into a relation since last 9 years it is a good relationship we both love each other a both and respect each other. we want to get married but i have many problems in my family my younger sister have already done love marriage without permission of my parents seeing to this and many other problems in my family and thinking of culture and our relatives what others will say i decided to sacrifice but we both couldn’t live without each other so i tried to convince my parents once and i told them everything but they refused. so i told my partner to end this relation but we both are not able to leave each other. now my parents have seen another boy for me for marriage but i am not able forget my partner what should i do please suggest.

  23. Dear A,
    We understand how difficult this situation can be to go through.
    When a partner cheats, it breaks one’s trust in a big way. This then affects one’s confidence and trust in the future. As counselors, we understand that fears and doubts can overwhelm your mind. However, it is very important to seek help. If you know somebody you can surely trust with sensitive information, try talking to them about this situation. If someone knows what exactly you are going through, they can help you understand and take control when your fears become too much or when you seem to be bogged down.

    However, if you are unsure or feel you can’t trust anyone, it would be helpful to talk to a counselor. A counselor will help you slowly deal with whatever emotions you are going through, until you start to feel more confident. It is also a good idea to seek professional help since undergoing a break up is a delicate phase. Having a trained, objective therapist to support you can boost your own coping skills and help you emerge stronger.

    Write to us on or call us on 9833985538 if you wish to book a session. Our timings for telephone enquiries are 11am to 7pm, Monday to Friday.

    We sincerely wish you well.

  24. Dear Nirbhay,
    Thank you for writing in and for sharing your concerns with us. We can understand that anxiety issues can really weigh one down and make one feel underconfident. However, anxiety can usually be overcome with some stable support from an objective person, such as a counselor. We suggest you see a therapist who works with anxiety issues. A therapist will hear you out and help you understand why these patterns of anxiety and loneliness exist. She will also gradually help you cope with your anxiety. Please don’t lose heart. It is possible for you to overcome this pattern.

    Do write back to us at if you want more details about psychotherapy. We would be glad to help 🙂

  33. Dear Himshikha,
    We can understand how overwhelming this information must be for you. Often, attention- seeking behaviour stems from deeper emotional vulnerabilities and patterns of thought that have slowly built up over time. It is possible for you to work through this in counseling and even overcome it. At the same time, we would advise that you do not go by only what you have read up on the internet. It would help to meet a counselor who would gain a detailed understanding of the situation and accordingly suggest what needs to be done ahead.

    We have also sent you details for counseling via email. Please check for an email from
    Take care

  34. Recently, my boyfriend broke up with me stating that I have attention seeking syndrome.
    On looking up on the internet, I found the symptoms shockingly similar to my behaviour. My family wouldn’t pay any heed if I would tell them about it and I need help.
    Please help. I feel directionless.

  38. Dear Vini,
    Thank you for writing in and sharing your concerns with us. We understand that this must be a difficult situation for you. Situations like these can be a great strain on both the partners and the relationship itself. You might feel overwhelmed and unsure of how to cope with your emotions.
    We would be glad to support you and your partner through counseling. A counselor would help you understand and work through the underlying reasons for the difficulties that you both seem to be facing. This would help you gain clarity on your issues and gain a sense of personal well-being.

  39. Hello,

  40. Dear Shyam,
    Thank you for writing in and sharing your concerns with us.
    Yes, medication taken under professional supervision does help. Medication generally helps to relieve some of the symptoms associated with depression. In addition to medication, therapy and counseling would be beneficial. Counseling would help you to understand and work through the underlying causes of your depression. The emotional insights and coping skills acquired during therapy can help alleviate the depression. The counselor would help you cope with the mental stress that you are facing and would gently guide you to a more peaceful state of mind.
    We would be glad to help you through counseling. We are sharing some details about the process and fee of counseling with you via email. Please check for an email from

  44. Hi Kapil

    Situations such as these are both unfortunate and tricky. There is no clear yes and no answer I can provide to your questions, especially knowing so little of the context.
    However there is one thing I can suggest. Maybe your girlfriend and you can both visit a psychologist/counselor who works with couples. This counselor can then ask the relevant questions, get an in-depth understanding of the situation and help both of you work with your own thoughts and emotions with respect to the situation. I’m sure there will be more clarity then and reasons for decisions will seem somewhat more evident.
    Hope things turn out well :). All the best
