Aware Mental Health was started out of a need to provide confidential psychotherapy sessions in a safe, warm space — away from all the hospital vibes and stigma-based settings. Psychological distress is perhaps the most normal emotion that we go through universally across the world, and yet people refrain from seeing a therapist. The main reasons for this could be that we have had terrible experiences with people around us who have shamed us and blamed us for our problems, or that you ended up going to a counsellor whose only mode of working with you was to to lecture you, reassure you, tell you to think positively, and give you advice.
Fortunately, science has come a long way ahead to provide measurable evidence that psychotherapeutic approaches like Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and now the globally emerging contextual CBT called Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) work — they really do — and they involve empathy, compassion, self-compassion, forgiveness, gratitude, finding meaning in life, in addition to also helping you cope with difficult thoughts and feelings that we label as anxiety, depression, trauma, shame, and low self-esteem.
At Aware, we practice an active form of therapy that doesn’t just involve talking but also working on psychological skills to process your difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively. Your inner world could be filled with worry, gloominess, an I-am-not-good-enough narrative, hurtful memories from the past, or just plain existential crisis.
Now with our well-trained therapists driven by the best science available, schedule a session to feel lighter, more understood, and overcome the emotional storms that weigh you down.
