What to Expect
The sessions are inspiring, nourishing, reflective and transformational. After understanding your issues and goals, I will help you examine your conscious and unconscious thoughts, resisting patterns, suppressed emotions, memories and conflicts.
Whether you are looking to clear residual emotions of an ex-relationship, address conflicts in your life, bring balance and motivation, perform better, improve intimacy, or release guilt, fears or the past, I will help you connect with your higher and true potential. Specifically, I will help you identify thoughts, patterns, memories and emotions that keep you stuck.
Apart from the Western psychotherapeutic techniques, I may use Eastern spiritual techniques such as Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Pranayam (yogic breathing) for deep relaxation or energizing depending on the client’s goals and needs.
You will also receive handy tools for self-reflection and you may be given hand-outs, thought diary journals, inspirational articles, audio recordings of meditation, breathing re-training and deep relaxation exercises.
Counselling for Teenagers
Teenagers: solution-focused rather than problem exploration-focused, which teaches the teenagers skill sets and techniques to evaluate their choices, problems and goals. Teenagers’ brains are not wired to grasp consequences and delay gratification. As teenagers are less averse to risk, making rational choices about their own well-being can be more challenging as they have a reduced ability to utilise their frontal lobes while young, hence their brains are not wired up to weight distant consequences. Nivedita uses a combination of mindfulness, CBT, EMDR, solution-focused breath therapy, which help amplify and connect with their strengths, resources, problem-solving, competence.
For new clients, I recommend an initial consultation to help identify the therapeutic approach for your child’s treatment.
I am blessed and grateful to have found such a wonderful person like Nivedita
I met Nivedita soon after I was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer, and I knew that she had successfully worked with cancer patients before. Sessions with Nivedita made me feel calm and stress-free. I truly overcame my fears regarding my chemotherapy sessions, and I was able to accept things as they came my way. I am so happy I found Nivedita, and I don’t think it would have been this smooth without her. - Priya Menon
I recommend Nivedita’s services to any parent who has a teen struggling with anxiety
My daughter she struggled badly with bouts of anxiety and as much as I tried, I was unable to help her. Nivedita taught my daughter techniques to overcome her fears and have better control over her emotions. Now, she is much happier. - Ilona S.
Nivedita has contributed significantly to my emotional, mental, and financial health.
Each visit to Dr. Ramanujam makes me a richer person with better insights into life. One Dr. Ramanujam in life is worth several well-meaning and wise friends! Dr. Ramanujam has a natural instinct and aptitude for her job, and that, combined with her compassionate and wise way of thinking, makes her a really amazing therapist! - A.K.
Nivedita is insightful
Nivedita helped me immensely with short-term anxiety, using a mixture of Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She regularly helps me dig down and pinpoint a particular emotion or motivation. Working with Nivedita continues to be immensely beneficial for my emotional life. - Z.M.
Nivedita was everything I had hoped for in a therapist!
At the end of every session, I felt physically rejuvenated and at the same time, psychologically more balanced, calm, and happier, even though going through some of these sessions wasn’t easy at all. Nivedita is not only a great therapist but a very special human being – kind, compassionate, and I always felt very safe and in good hands. - Caroline Halbroth
