Counselling by ISKCON for all ages
Counselling has been known to have a profound impact on many lives and families. It can change lives, not only of individuals but also of families, communities, and society.
Counseling helps people, young or old, navigate the various difficulties they might face in life, such as losing a loved one or stress.
According to statistics, 20% of Indians have either gone through or require counseling sessions at some point in their lives. About 1% of the Indian populace suffers from severe mental health disorders. 5-10% of Indians are suffering from moderate mental health issues.
According to psychiatrists, in urban areas like Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, and Kolkata, depression is the most common type of mental health issue that these big cities face.
Out of 1000 people, 30.7 people are affected by depression. The short life of the towns and the intense competition to be the best in everything is the prime cause of most mental health disorders.
Trying to be at par with the world’s pace and the fear of failure makes us strive harder and accept stress with open hands.
At ISKCON Dwarka, we believe in counseling’s power and the changes counseling can bring about society. We firmly believe that talking and listening can help and successfully bring a person and a family out of whatever they are facing or going through.
Keeping all the needs and wants of people in mind, Iskcon has come up with Counseling rooms and halls which stretch to an area of 5000 sq ft and hold the capacity to accommodate 500 people in a single point time.
How does counselling help?
Counselling allows you to talk to someone without the fear of being judged or doubted. You are able to speak about everything that is in your heart in a comfortable, dependable environment. Prince Arjun was able to tell Lord Krishna whatever was in his heart. Every confusion, every dilemma that he was facing, he opened it up in front of Lord Krishna. He was able to depend on Lord Krishna and Lord Krishna made him feel comfortable. Lord Krishna was able to give him sound advice which led to the creation of the Bhagavad Gita.
Just like Lord Krishna helped resolve the situation Price Arjun was in and was able to counsel him and give him sound advice to bring him out of his dilemma, trained counsellors do the same for you. No matter what the situation is, sessions with a trained counsellor will help rise above it.
If you want to know what the benefits of counseling are, then here are the reasons:
