Popular Demand for Online Counselling

What lies before us and what lies behind us are small matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen - Ralph Waldo Emerson

People have requested us to launch online counselling by text/voice/video chat, now that the use of such programmes on the internet has become commonplace.

FREE counselling is one of the core precepts of Banjara Academy that we take very seriously as we believe it helps improve quality of life across all sections of society. So we have ventured into online counselling slowly keeping in mind the limitations of online interactions.

As a small first step, we launched FREE ONLINE counselling by email. All you have to do is email us telling us whatever it is that is weighing you down or troubling you. Please do provide your name, age, sex, marital status, education and current work status in your mail to help your counsellor respond to you suitably.

We guarantee the confidentiality of your personal data as well as any other information that you disclose.

We assure you a response to your email from one of our counsellors at the earliest.

Please remember Banjara Academy's online email counselling service is absolutely free.

Coordinating the online email counselling team of volunteer counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last few years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja

FREE COUNSELLING Services of Banjara Academy: History

Under the banner, Helping Hand, Banjara Academy has always been offering free counselling in person for anybody in emotional distress, firmly believing that such support should never be at a fee.

For the last couple of decades, anybody in Bangalore, India, in dire need to talk to somebody has had to just call Banjara Academy and fix up an appointment with one of our volunteer counsellors or just walk into our offices in RT Nagar and RV Road, India and meet one of our volunteer counsellors.

With the advent of the internet and emails, many have also been writing to us about their problems and we have been replying to them, doing our best to be there for them as counsellors.

With the free online counselling service by email, we are seeking to reach out, beyond Bangalore, to more people (now, you may be anywhere in the world) and provide you with some degree of emotional support, whatever we can, as we have always been doing so for the past couple of decades - emotional support that you may be struggling to find in your life.
