At FineAlly, We’re Here For You

“A 31 years old female came to therapy as she was struggling with relationship concerns. She had been in tumultuous relationships and wanted to focus on herself. She found the space to unpack her past and current relationships dynamics. She wanted to move towards keeping herself first. Through the sessions, she learnt to prioritise herself and her needs in her relationships with partners, friends and family. We also worked on her self esteem and past trauma. ”

    Client Experiences

    “The session helped me a lot and also made me feel heard with absolute no judgement, it was a very comfortable environment, it helped me gaining insights and supportive one on one session”

    – Anushtha, 19 years

    “Miss Archita’s sessions have helped me immensely/tonnes. I am very much thankful for her support through all my struggles during low phases. I really can’t forget the days when I used to cry massively and she was the one who could understand me and listened to my endless fears and thoughts. Even people close to me couldn’t help me get through it, but she was the one who lit my life gracefully.

    I was able to overcome the worst of my depression just because of the most humble woman, Miss Archita. I had and always have an excellent experience in taking sessions with her.

    Thanks a lot for being a part of my life journey and thanks for making it easier.”

    – Rhythm, 24 years

    “Mental Health has long been a “taboo subject”, and one that has always been looked down upon or ignored even. Fortunately, now it is at the forefront with so many people all over the world coming forward with a bevy of such issues and problems.

    My own problems weren’t far behind, and Archita was right there to answer the call each and every time. It wasn’t just being there that helped, it’s actively listening and also, equipping me with certain tips and tricks in cases of emergencies or urgencies, to be able to calm down and handle the issue at hand. Further, the ability to look at and gauge circumstances from not just one, but multiple perspectives and points of view is another big learning from the entire journey.

    Cannot thank Archita enough for helping me acknowledge, understand and work through my own mental health issues, with such kindness and care.”

    How is Counselling and Psychotherapy Different From Talking to a Friend?

    Counselling and Psychotherapy is not opinionated and is not advice giving
    Unlike well meaning friends and family, a counsellor or therapist is not there to give you advice or opinions but rather help you explore what is best for you.
    You are in the driver's seat
    When in therapy, you will be choosing the direction in which to move forward, making decisions about what to focus on, what to talk about and what to work on.
    A therapist will listen carefully  
    A therapist will give you their undivided attention and they are trained in attentive listening skills.
    Counselling and Psychotherapy provides a confidential, private space
    The information we share in counselling and psychotherapy is private and confidential. We do not need to hold back on sharing due to the fear that our personal information may get leaked.
    A-Class empathy
    At times, we may feel that our friends and family don’t “get us”. A professional therapist is able to tune in deeper and provide a higher level of empathy.
    A therapist will have methods and techniques
    A professional counsellor or psychotherapist will be able to provide specific techniques and methods assessing what is likely to help you.
    Counselling and Psychotherapy provides unbiased support (relatively)
    A lot of times our loved ones make certain assumptions about us, skip to the same old advice or tend to assume where our faults may lie. As a professional and a stranger, a psychologist is less likely to have biases and judgements about you.
    It's Structured
    The structure of therapy can help you prioritise your needs and work on yourself.

      Counselling and Psychotherapy FAQs

      No problem is big or small for therapy. If its a problem for you, and it is causing you any amount of stress, sadness, anxiety or difficulty, you can feel free to reach out. Therapy is not reserved for a certain “level” of problems. We can go to the dentist for a toothache or we can go for a general check up. Similarly if you are confused, you can speak to a therapist and take a session or two to know mor about how therapy will work for you.

      Yes, at times reliving past trauma and difficult experiences can be painful. This will be your choice to choose to share. Despite this being optional, it is helpful and is often a necessary part of working through the process. It will help to prepare yourself to feel worse at times while exploring difficult situations in a safe and comfortable space.

      Many factors will determine how many sessions are needed for you. It depends on the nature of your concerns, how long the current problems have been around for, and also the format of therapy. The first step to assessing how many sessions will be required is to have an initial assessment. For most situations at least 12 sessions are needed but it can be less or more depending on your concern. If the problem has been around for a number of years, it is likely that treatment will last for longer.

      The typical frequency is 1 session a week. However at times, we may begin with 2 sessions a week for the first 1 to 2 weeks if deemed fit. Once you and the therapist observe progress, the frequency of sessions may be brought down to once in 2 weeks. Before completely ending treatment, follow up sessions are recommended at the interval of 1, 3 or 6 months.

      At times one may feel better after the first session as talking to a therapist who is warm, empathetic and non judgemental can feel good. In fact, just talking about a concern may feel good. However, therapy is a process and this process takes time. The first 2 to 3 sessions are a time for assessment, creating goals and a time when the therapist is understanding you. You may not expect the main techniques to begin just yet and thereby you may not notice considerable practical changes. You are however likely to feel better after every session.

      It is not mandatory to involve your loved ones in your treatment. It can, however, be recommended in certain situations or you may choose to involve them. This is especially true in the case of problems in relationships. However, a lot of work can be done on relationships even without involving the other person.

      Typically, no. At times your therapist may refer you to another specialist for a coexisting concern or additional treatment. An example of this can be a referral to a psychiatrist or a speech therapist. 

      Confidentiality of sessions is maintained by all psychologists and counsellors. This means that all information shared will be kept only with your therapist and no identifying information will be shared. However, some of the best therapists take case consultations or supervisions from senior colleagues, mentors and other experts in the field. If your therapist is doing so, they may be consulting the other expert for your case as well. However, the other expert(s) also maintains the same standards of confidentiality. If you are concerned about this, feel free to discuss this with your therapist.

      No. Counsellors and therapists in India will not prescribe medication. However, if your condition is affecting your day to day living or if it is getting difficult for you to focus on therapy, medication may be considered. This will require a psychiatric evaluation by a psychiatrist.

      Whom you wish to tell that you are taking therapy is your personal choice. There is no rule that you must tell your family or friends. However, we do ask for an emergency contact. It is also helpful to keep someone you trust in the loop.
