Anchu is very empathetic and easy to talk to. I am glad to have connected to her.
— Anonymous
Praan is very well organized, right from the first text regarding doubts till the end of my sessions, they were ready to help me and were quick to respond to my queries. I had 5 sessions with Anchu Krishna, who was extremely kind, and flexible. These 5 sessions with her was very insightful for me in terms of self awareness and I am happy I chose Praan.
— Slokha Varshini
Dear Vijaya Ma’am, I am feeling very fortunate to have therapy sessions from you and I am really amazed how accurately you are able to comprehend my words and what I have been through in my life. I was extremely joyful on the second day of the therapy when you provided me affirmations to deal with the need of maternal love from mother figures. Maternal figure transference was the pain I was juggling with since my teenage years and I tried every strategy but nothing worked out, in fact my previous therapist clearly told me that there is no solution to these emotions except meeting these needs through someone, which was not a practical and healthy solution. Also, the Mindfulness technique that you taught me helped me to deal with heavy emotions that used to weigh me down emotionally. Now I feel very light. You have a very beautiful quality to provide your client enough space to express themselves in an accurate and healthy way and the techniques provided by you to lighten the mental load of emotions works the best. Thanks for rebuilding my trust in therapy which I lost previously due to unexpected experience. Hoping to improve myself and resolve all the underlying issues I have with your support.Thanks

Got questions? Find answers in our FAQs!

What is Therapy?
Therapy is a process that helps you in different areas of your life like relationships, stress, career, personal growth, and so on. You and your therapist/ psychologist will address different areas of your distress.
I have friends/family I can talk to. How will therapy be of use to me?
Talking to family and friends is certainly helpful, but counselling/therapy is designed to help you understand behavioral patterns, make sense of emotional experiences and create goals for your progress in an holistic, scientific and systematic manner.
How will therapy help?
It can help you manage ongoing distress like stress, anxiety, grief, and relationship issues or proactively better prepare you for upcoming distress like unwanted change, separation, leadership roles etc. Your therapist/psychologist will be working with you towards common goals.
How will the therapist be assigned to me?
At Praan, we believe that client should have complete freedom to choose the right therapist for them. You can choose a therapist from our pool of counsellors. If your desired counsellor is unavailable, we will suggest another counsellor who is equally competent to work with you.
How much time is needed for me to go through therapy?
The duration of the therapy depends on the issue, the intensity of the problem and your own involvement. However, we suggest an average of five sessions as it helps the client and the counsellor to dig a bit deeper into the issue and come up with conclusive progress.
How should I prepare for my first therapy session?
Just be open and ready to discuss your problems with your counsellor. If something is not working for you, communicate the same with your counsellor. The first session is about building comfort and rapport with your counsellor. So help your counsellor build that with you.
I am able to manage my stress, do I still need therapy?
Therapy is never about questioning your ability to manage your stress/problems. It is about empowering you to manage that same problem better, by giving you a holistic view of the problem along with a non-judgemental perspective.
Will my identity be kept confidential?
Absolutely! Confidentiality in counselling is a basic aspect. Except for your therapist/ counsellor, no one will be privy to your confidential information which you share with PRAAN and the information shared will be discussed only to improve our services upon your consent.
What if I am not happy/satisfied with my therapist/counsellor?
Since all of us are different and there are different styles of counselling, it might happen that you don’t find the right fit with your existing counsellor. In that case, you can simply choose to continue with another counsellor from our pool of available counsellors.
What are the different issues that Therapy can help me with?
Therapy can help you with emotional, behavioral, and cognitive issues. Some common issues are stress, anxiety, depression, relationships, marital, inability to concentrate, hyperactivity, career, productivity, mood swings, anger, adjustment, trauma, abuse, grief, and loss.
How can I reschedule my session?
Yes, you can reschedule the session anytime before 12 hours of the session slot. After that, you will not be able to reschedule the session. For more info on rescheduling or cancellation check above.
I haven’t used my therapy package, what to do now?
You can hold on to the unused sessions and use them on a further date as your follow up sessions.
What is the difference between Counseling and Clinical Psychology?
Clinical psychology deals with severe mental health disorders, while counseling psychology focuses on less severe issues and everyday challenges. Clinical psychologists use various therapies for severe emotional distress, while counseling psychologists focus on person-centered, strengths-based approaches to address specific issues and foster personal growth.
