"I AM MY OWN RESCUE" - If not for life pinning me down, I wouldn't have struggled to get up and win. This tussle resulted in the inception of a personal culture of daring to bleed my knuckles but not stop punching my way forward. Resilience gave birth to my phoenix, "EduPsych". This self rescuer was founded in 2016 to offer a Psychotherapy platform for one's personal and professional growth. EduPsych, a safe space, is a product of my resilience that I could build little by little after every rejection, disappointment, loss and heartbreak in my journey as a Psychologist and an Entrepreneur.
Today, an Entrepreneur, Psychologist, Speaker...over the years, a MENTAL HEALTH WARRIOR. Yes, I am a Depression survivor turned Psychologist who prides herself in being known as a Mental Health Warrior. Growing up, I was bullied, humiliated for not fitting into societal definitions of how 'feminine' a 'female' should be, exploited for being naïve, and more of a loner - not by choice but by force. From not being able to pronounce the word, 'Psychiatrist', (as it was understood a 'sin', a taboo, a stigma that only the crazy meets a Mental Healthcare Professional), to walking into a haven that turned me into a self-rescuer and a Psychologist, it's been quite a bumpy ride!
I had stopped evolving, innovating, growing, or reinventing and I knew that I was in danger. But, I knew not how to save myself. It was when I enrolled for a P.G. Diploma in Psychological Counseling (because studying was more of a hobby), that I embarked upon a journey of self-worth and I started to compound it with positive reinforcements, to cherish it unconditionally! I woke up to the adversities surrounding all of us: judgements, gender bias, patriarchy, and ignorance towards the MOST IMPORTANT organ: Brain. And I got committed to a journey of becoming the Transformation one seeks to gain Mental and Emotional excellence by continuing to pursue further studies, this time, as a mission and not a hobby alone.
When on a mission, it's always an ongoing one! One leads to the other and the process is exciting! So, from a solo practitioner to an entrepreneur, I've created a safe space where healers and seekers find comfort and growth alike. EduPsych is that bandwagon that welcomes professionals to be fearless in their pursuit of a successful career as a Psychologist/Psychotherapist/Counselor/Mental Health Professional, irrespective of the location they reside in or the time-zone they work with. At EduPsych, we are breaking stigmas one after the other:
Eradicating stigmas associated with mental healthcare.
Breaking silences and speaking up about things that hurt.
Breaking barriers that limit women professionals to continue working after marriage/during pregnancy/after pregnancy/whenever!
Breaking the barriers of language - seek help in YOUR language.
Breaking norms that limit methods of learning. We help you know your learning style.
Breaking financial limitations of healing by offering therapy that is better and affordable than pills and potions!
Breaking conventional norms of seeking psychotherapy and offering help right at the click of a button - online!
I'm certain that the list is an ever growing one. So, if you find yourself to be a warrior, a toughie, a norm breaker, an empath, an active listener, a healer...join in our mission and become a MENTAL HEALTH WARRIOR because - We all are Warriors fighting our battles alone. But this is a war. And wars are won with an army.
