Visiting a psychologist can be a scary for most of us. Hence understanding what a psychologist does and the role they play in our wellness is important. Based on the foundations of non-judgment, psychotherapy is a collaborative process through which the individual and the therapist look at identifying concern areas, and then finding ways to resolve these concerns. Trained in scientifically based procedures the psychologist would identify techniques best suited to a specific individual.

Today we live in a fast paced world and are often characterized by a “more is better” mind-set. It places us under undue performance pressure, over scheduled activities and work assignments and deadlines. Thus, over load of information makes it difficult for our working memory to focus. Over a period of time it has been noticed that over stimulated and overscheduled life has become a chronic stressor that leads to psychological problems.
Mindfulness is “paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, non judgmentally.” It is the practice of bringing attention to our thoughts, feelings and actions as they arise from moment to moment. Mindfulness also involves acceptance, meaning that we pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without judging them—without believing, for instance, that there’s a “right” or “wrong” way to think or feel in a given moment.
Research shows that learning mindfulness practices can improve our ability to pay attention, to control their emotions and to make more conscious decisions.
