Ph.D ; Psychotherapist ; Psychoanalyst ; Training Analyst ; Supervisor

To begin with let me share something with you.

After my Ph.d I wanted to treat people from all walks of life for a wide variety of problems including anxiety, depression, trauma, lifestyle disorders etc. So I joined Gujarat Research and Medical Institute, Ahmadabad.(1998). Most of the patient who came to me over here were not aware of the theory and technique of Psychoanalysis/ psychotherapy.

But they were aware of their suffering…that something was a block in their life or there is a disharmony which can be resolved (to whatever degree) they were in search of knowledge to get rid of their distress of life.

University Students Mental Health

With the rise of information technology and an increasing global economy, higher education is also becoming more of a necessity for success.

Young adults enter college with many challenges – Complicated family dynamics, identity issues, and extreme pressure to succeed. Students may also have mental health difficulties, ranging from adjustment disorder to mood disorders, to disturbed relationships. While many of these students are able to capitalize on available transition programs and on their own individual coping abilities, too many experience predictable and preventable problems, Some feel so depressed that they seriously consider suicide.

The majority of college student mental health difficulties affect students “Everyday life” in some way or the other. In addition to causing academic underperformance, psychological problems have a range of other side effects ; from creating difficulties in establishing friendships and other intimate relationship to delaying graduation to dropping out of school. Hence, Students lifestyle problems, relationship difficulties, depression and anxiety takes a toll on the “PERFORMANCE” of the student.

So reach out and seek professional help.


Psychoanalysis at it heart is very simple—the "talking cure".
Psychoanalysis treatment is based on the theory that our present is shaped by our past. We are often unaware of how experiences can affect us. Painful feelings can remain in the unconscious mind and influence our current mood and behaviour and contribute to problems with self-esteem, personality, relationships and work. Because we are unaware of these forces, common problem-solving techniques – such as seeking the advice of friends and family or reading self-help books– often fail to provide relief.

Psychoanalysis helps a person take control of these influences by tracing them back to their origins and understanding how they have developed over time.
