In Dr. Kohli’s words, “I approach all of my clients with the desire to help them relieve their troubling symptoms and resolving their current life problems. Even though my approach is psychoanalytic, I belong to a new school of relational and interpersonal psychoanalysis that has blossomed over the past twenty years. Rather than focusing heavily on past events, I help my clients integrate their past with their present. Understanding the genetic and environmental forces that shaped the persons they are today helps provide valuable insight and perspective on their current situation. Thus it is a Client-Centered Therapy and I also like to involve the Family in Support Therapy to the client.I work to educate my clients about human nature, including the fact that we cannot control how we feel. This has recently been confirmed by neuroscience research, even though many people believe that they can control what they feel. What we can do is work to understand and accept our feelings, manage them better, and reduce their intensity if they cause problems. I tell my clients that even though they cannot control how they feel, almost always they can control how they behave.So my approach blends greater self-awareness with knowledge of how the mind works to help my clients take responsibility to change their lives. I am an active participant in this process and I do not hesitate to give feedback if the client seeks it. My private practice is currently based out of DLF City in Gurgaon.
