About Dr Veera Balaji Kumar

Psychologist with more than a decade of experience in assessing, diagnosing and treating mental health issues.

 

As a therapist, my chief objective in therapy is to empower my clients, by facilitating the realization of your unique values, strengths and barriers to achieve them - helping you to get through difficult situations in life.

 

Introspection and Self-awareness are the first steps towards gaining insights and effecting effective change. Understanding your thoughts, emotions and actions in relation to the context then becomes an important step in solving the problem. My work centers around primarily on finding solutions by examining and challenging various inhibitive aspects of our thought processes and breaking them down. So don’t hold back, lets talk it out!

 

The seed to my career as a psychologist were sowed early in my life during adolescent years. I was destined with a strong curiosity about why people do what they do. And, the ability of some of us to languish in their life circumstances, while on the other hand a selected few seemed to have the fascinating ability to navigate through problems of life, overcoming their adversities and display amazing resilience skills to emerge winners.

 

 So naturally, I followed my passion and graduated with my doctorate degree in  Psychology from the Psychology department of prestigious Bharathiar University, Coimbatore, IN.

 

My passion then led me to begin private practice, which I have been doing for the past 12 years, working with individuals and couples. 

 

I offer my consulting to the employees of HCL Technologies facing work stress, anxiety and depression and low self-esteem at HCL Healthcare, Madurai. 

 

In addition to my clinical work, I teach Master of Psychology courses of Bharathiar University at M.S.Chellamuthu institute of mental health & Rehabilitation; and the Post graduate diploma in counselling & Psychotherapy of Tamilnadu Open university.

Frequently Asked Questions

Even though there is much awareness about psychotherapy or counseling generally, still there are doubts and apprehensions.  So check if you have the following questions about therapy. Please do check out the FAQ section of this website.

What are the signs of being abused by partner?

Domestic abuse can happen to anyone regardless of their social, educational, or financial status. Someone can be abused physically, emotionally or by just controlling your behavior. If someone is being physically abused, they will likely have frequent bruises or physical injuries consistent with being punched, choked, or knocked down etc. If you notice that someone who was once outgoing and cheerful has gradually become quiet and withdrawn, it could be a sign of domestic abuse.

What should I take to the therapy session?

Only thing you have to bring is an open mind and attitude of curiosity. What's important is trusting the therapist and being present. Paying attention to what is going on inside of you in the moment in the therapy office can give you a sufficient information to explore and discuss that may yield insights you wouldn't have explored otherwise. Bring along notes of thoughts — worries you had, fears that kept you up at night.  Talk about scary and embarrassing things. Just be honest, and don't shrug and say you're fine.

Can I take somebody with me for support?

If you are not used to doing things alone, or tend to be shy, sitting in a room with a stranger called a therapist might sound intimidating. Perhaps you would like someone to come along with you for support. They can come with you and stay in the waiting room while you are with your therapist. But those who are close to you might care about you very much. They may be concerned about the ways you see things and the choices you make. So, you might, without realizing it, change the things you say .
