ABOUT SECTION

What does a multi-modal approach mean?

A multi-modal approach uses a combination of different approaches in psychology and related fields, with interventions at the psycho-spiritual, emotional and physical levels. The modalities we use include psychotherapy, art, movement, sound, mindfulness, meditation, neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and many more. This approach brings together the best of the East and West to effectively treat the whole person.

How is RCCL different from other places?

RCCL works at the very core of a person, to help them reconnect within.

This can be best explained through the metaphor of a building. When a building is constructed, the first thing to do is to excavate the soil. The foundation is built in this space and forms the base of the building. This footing takes the entire weight of the building. Then the columns and beams are built, and these make up the skeleton of the building. The floor and ceilings rest on the beams.

If the footing is not built correctly, the building is ‘off’. If the columns are skewed, the building tilts. If the beams are tilted, the floor cannot be properly supported. The building itself is not doing what it can do. Likewise, if our foundational habits are misaligned, then we are ‘off’. If our column habits are ‘off’, our life veers off in a direction we don’t want. If our beam habits are ‘off’, only a weak platform can be built. Our thinking platform may be off-center, or our emotional platform could be underdeveloped.

What makes RCCL unique is that it can work on the whole person, such that misalignments at any level can be corrected. Other places may be able to redo the beams, re-tilt the columns or correct the floor. Corrections can be done at the superficial as well as deep levels. Maybe even the foundation can be rectified, fortified and enhanced.

RCCL’s unique skill is that it can work on transformation right from the soil that the footing is resting on. The soil may be sandy, weak, dry, clayey or non-pliable. Whatever the condition, RCCL can work at this level- below the foundation, to heal the very soil that supports the structure. Working at the root level, the change process becomes deeper, quicker and permanent.

The person is able to reconnect within. The more we connect within, the more alive we are and the more we live consciously and fully. RCCL, uniquely, can do that and help rekindle that lost spark.

Therapy

How are individual and group therapy different?

Both individual and group therapy can help with a wide range of issues and offer their own benefits.

Individual therapy allows you to have your own exclusive space. This feels safer for some clients, and supports them in exploring difficult events, emotions and experiences.

Group therapy supports you in identifying and resolving interpersonal issues through real-time feedback. In sharing our experiences, it reduces isolation, and allows us to acknowledge our shared humanity.

Please choose the option which feels better for you. This can also be discussed with your therapist.

How many participants will be there in a group session?

This varies from group to group. Generally, the numbers range from 4-8 people.

Counselling

What is counselling?

Counselling offers you a safe and supported space to reconnect with yourself. Sometimes, we can feel stuck balancing life’s challenges and roadblocks. A lot of emotions and experiences may come up that we do not know how to navigate. While our family and friends can help us feel heard, we may feel more ready to look within with the aid of someone outside the situation.

Counselling helps you pause, untangle your emotions and gain clarity. It also helps you access your inner resources and guidance. This empowers you to handle situations with more ease and alignment.

What is counselling not?

It is not giving advice: Counselors do not tell you what you should do, or how to live your life. They help you gain clarity over your emotions and experiences, support you in taking action and in finding direction.

It is not a quick fix or a magic pill: Counselling is not a miracle tool that will automatically fix your problems. It helps you gain more awareness of yourself and your experiences. With increased awareness, understanding and acceptance, we are able to make more fulfilling and aligned choices.

It is not just listening: The counselling relationship is collaborative. In a typical session, the issue/need is put in the center, and the counsellor and client approach it from different angles. As a client, you are an active part of the process. The goal is to help you access your inner guidance and to create the changes you desire in your life.

Who can benefit from counselling?

Counselling is for everyone. Adults and children of all ages can benefit from it.

Every stage of life comes with its own challenges. Counselling is a form of support which can help us find clarity, reconnect with ourselves, respond to these challenges better, and live more fulfilling lives.

It is not meant only for a certain age group, or set of problems. Issues it addresses include (but are not limited to) relationship issues, lifestyle changes, identity crises’, loss, emptiness, trauma, grief, addiction, stress, anger-management, abuse, sexuality, depression and psychological/behavioural disorders. Counselling is also beneficial for people who want to work towards their personal growth.

How many sessions will I need?

Counselling is tailored to each client’s needs. The number of sessions required vary from person to person, depending on their situation, challenges and goals.

How do I pay for sessions?

We accept payment through bank transfer. The bank details will be shared before your first session. Please note that an 18% GST is applicable on all payments.

How is counselling different from life coaching?

Coaching is oriented towards goals: it helps you set and achieve targets. Counselling is insight and processing oriented. It helps you recognise and address problems in your life, work and relationships.

How is counselling different from the service of a psychiatrist?

Psychiatrists are doctors who use medication to address and manage symptoms at the mental and physical level. Counselling addresses the problem itself, helping people identify the cause, and supporting them in healing.

Heal Your Life Training

Are there any prerequisites?

All trainees must be familiar with Louise Hay’s work. This training is most suitable for people who have been positively impacted by her work, apply the principles in their lives and want to share it forward. Experience in counselling or leading groups is helpful, but not necessary.

CONSCIOUS LIVING S.H.O.T.T.

Why is Conscious Living S.H.O.T.T. compared to a gym?

Many of us use gyms to bring consistency into practices that maintain or enhance our physical health. However, most of us do not make a similar investment in our mental and emotional health.

Recognising this, Dr. Sampoorna created the Conscious Living S.H.O.T.T. to support people in making holistic health (mind-body-spirit) a regular part of their lives. Our sessions offer something new every day. Our powerful exercises are simple enough to be used by everyone. This combined with a dedicated space, committed facilitators, and a community of co-participants supports people in making real, deep and lasting changes in their lives.

How is Conscious Living different from other yoga and mindfulness program?

Conscious Living S.H.O.T.T is a one-of-a-kind holistic wellbeing program. Its uniqueness lies both in the concept and the approach.

The idea behind the S.H.O.T.T. is to help people develop simple habits to transform their lives, and bring consistency in their mind-body-spirit care. While mindfulness and body-based approaches are a part of it, we also use several other approaches. These include sound healing, stretching, body-work, cognitive restructuring, movement, brain-gym, breath work and more. Moreover, several of our exercises are completely new. They were created specifically to bring awareness, connection and ease into people’s lives.

Is there a difference between in-person and online sessions?

While the flow of exercises are the same, there are a few differences between the two.

Our in-person sessions are conducted at our center in Royapettah. These sessions are one hour long, and present you with the opportunity to work on yourself in a dedicated space. They also bring the added benefit of being able to interact more easily with your facilitator and other participants.
Our online sessions are 40 minutes long. These sessions are specifically created to help people living in other cities and countries to access this work. They offer more flexibility as they are shorter and can be attended from anywhere.

The 41-day Rewiring S.H.O.T.T. - Most of us know that It takes 21 days to begin forming a habit.
