“I attended the previous batch of core counselling skills at In Vivo. They teach very patiently and let us practice in the sessions. It was a helpful course for me as I developed quite a few skills and learned to differentiate between many skills. Looking forward for more courses!”

“The Core Counselling Skills workshop was a revision of the various skills. The facilitators went through the material methodically and meticulously, clarifying doubts on the way. Despite being on an online format, the facilitators managed to not only give relevant examples but also practice of the matter covered.”

      REBT is a multimodal, short-term therapy conceived by Dr. Albert Ellis, based on the philosophy of flexibility and non-extremism in life. It helps the clients to proactively identify the causes for their emotional disturbances and then learn a concrete, directive approach to uproot these causes. Several cognitive, emotive and behavioral techniques are used toward this purpose.

      A Psychologist has a M.A degree in Psychology and a Psychiatrist has M.D in Psychiatry. A psychologist is trained to offer psychotherapy services that do not include medication and a Psychiatrist's training primarily involves prescribing medicines for treatment of relatively more severe mental disorders.

      Psychotherapy is essentially talk therapy wherein a therapist helps the client reduce his/her emotional disturbances. It is a collaborative effort to identify the reasons for the client’s emotional disturbance and then to actively work on different solutions for it.

      Yes, REBT will be useful to you in your personal life. REBT is a marvelous tool that aims to teach people how to help themselves to lead a satisfying life and to consistently keep dealing not only with grave disturbances but also day-to-day problems one faces in the process of living. People from all walks of life and varied age groups can use it for self-help for problems like Self-Blame, Self-Pity, Clinical anger, guilt, shame, extreme irritation, dissatisfaction, depression, hopelessness, anxiety; behaviors like procrastination, indecisiveness, over-compulsiveness, avoidance and withdrawal.
