One of the counselling centres that you can visit in Mumbai is Mpower, started by Aditya Birla Education Trust with a mission of providing mental health services to individuals from all walks of life. Your journey with Mpower begins with booking your first appointment. To do this you can walk-in to the centre, call on +91 97028 00044 or email at mpowerminds.info@abet.co.in. Based on this, you will be given a screening appointment with a psychologist.

Psychologists are therapists who study about the human mind & behaviour. They are mental health experts who focus on using different forms of therapy to help clients understand themselves better, manage their symptoms & cope with challenging situations.

At Mpower, we have psychologists that have extensive experience with children, adolescents, adults & older adults.

The screening appointment consists of two parts – (1) the psychologist giving you information about the centre, our processes at Mpower and a general idea about the way forward and (2) the psychologist gathering information about your history, concerns and challenges. The therapist will ask you to expand on your current life situation, your relationships and your environment. Based on this, the therapist & you will identify goals related to mental health, emotional wellness, behavioural changes, self-exploration, relationship issues, family dynamics, symptom management etc.

Following this initial session, therapy will commence. Therapy is a collaborative process between you and a psychologist. This means that both members will be active members of the continued sessions. During this time, the therapist and you will use different forms of therapy to achieve previously identified goals. Due to the unique nature of therapy, each individual’s therapy process may look different. At Mpower, we have the option of individual sessions, family or group sessions and couple sessions.

Based on the information collected by the psychologist, a psychiatric evaluation may be recommended to you.

Psychiatrists who specialize in psychiatry, the branch of medicine that relates to mental health. They are medical experts who focus on prevention, diagnosis & treatment of mental health & related conditions. Psychiatrists have knowledge & training in mental and physical health and specialize in understanding how the two are connected. At Mpower’s counselling centre in Mumbai, we have psychiatrists that have extensive experience with children, adolescents, adults & older adults.

A psychiatric evaluation is a comprehensive evaluation with a psychiatrist. During the sessions, the psychiatrist will ask questions & gather information regarding medical, mental, physical & behavioural concerns. Based on this information, the psychiatrist will also develop a treatment plan. This may include a -
