Individual And Family Therapy
Our trained psychologists work with individuals and families to address psycho-emotional issues arising in the context of relationships and life experiences and co-create solutions to promote healthy coping through counseling and psychotherapy. Individual management plans are prepared for clients based on assessed concerns and specific contextual elements which ensure redressal of immediate concerns and crisis-intervention, followed by goal-setting towards the development and enhancement of coping skills. Ethical standards of psychotherapy are stringently maintained in the implementation of these plans.
Clients normally approach us for common mental disorders (depression, anxiety, and stress related difficulties that arise due to situational demands and circumstances that create disturbances in normal functioning for individuals.) and severe mental illnesses (include schizophrenia and other disorders on the psychotic spectrum, bipolar or manic-depressive disorder, major depressive disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, eating disorders, personality disorders and addiction). Based on the need of the clients, we use a combination individual therapy, family therapy, with pharmacological therapy to assist the restoration of normal functioning and healthy coping.

Psychometric and psycho-diagnostic assessments play an essential role in conceptualising and initiating therapeutic interventions, and in clarifying diagnoses. Manas uses standardised testing procedures to understand the difficulties around the intellectual adjustment and psychosocial or emotional well-being of clients. This extends to understanding the spectrum of issues that maybe taking away from the patients’ positive psychological growth.
Psychometric assessments for individuals across all age groups are available in the following areas
Career planning and decisions are often confusing and stressful for adolescents and young adults. Young adults face immense pressure to develop plans on a structured timeline that allows for little variation or uncertainty. At Manas, we conduct career counselling with a positive psychological approach that engages with many issues. These issues include family/peer pressure, following the herd, foreclosure, unrealistic aspirations, evaluation apprehension, indecision, self-esteem and identity crisis. Dealing with these issues simplifies the decision-making process and career choices for young adults.
Our premise is that positive career choices are made when there is an alignment between these three aspects. The three aspects are individual’s interest areas, aptitudes, and integral personality characteristics. Therefore, we begin with a detailed interview regarding career conceptualizations and future orientation followed by aptitude testing, administration of scales assessing interest areas, and facilitation of self-disclosure activities that bring forth personality variables and traits pertinent to career. It includes an understanding of primary traits, brief assessment of career-personality, strengths and obstacles to career perceived by the client, and value systems.
The career report brings out the match between the three key areas: interest, aptitude and personality. It then provides detailed and specific recommendations (including market trends in relevant areas, where applicable) based on the results of the assessment. Interactive report sharing sessions are often a follow up of career assessment, wherein the client and key family members are briefed on findings and engaged with for the road ahead.
