The counsellor works with an open, neutral and non-judgmental attitude working to understand the person from their socio-cultural and religious background.

Counsellors are ethically bound to not enforce their personal religious beliefs to clients.

Counsellors attempt to understand and relate to your own religion and worldview in order to help you better without enforcing their own religious views. However, professional counselling is based on psychological schools of thought that are scientific in nature and not necessarily on religious backgrounds.

In our experience, after counselling, people have shared that they “feel energized”, “feel good, positive , “feel lighter”, “gain clarity”, “learn more about themselves and others”, “feel less stuck or overwhelmed”, and hopeful”, “take decisions and actions”, “see positive changes”, “improve relationships” and so on. This is often possible because the counsellor is neutral and objective while working with you.

The fees will be communicated to you once you fix an appointment. However you might benefit from knowing that Satyamani.in is working for community welfare therefore the cost of counselling will be fair and reasonable.
How can a third person (who doesn’t know me) help me out with my problem?
The reason counselling is effective is because the counsellor is a third person. This enables the counsellor to be neutral, objective and non-judgmental of you. First they listen and after understanding they give the guidelines. They are well trained and educated.
What if the counsellor is narrow-minded or biased?
Counsellors are ethically bound to be unbiased, open-minded and neutral.
When I meet a counsellor, where do I start?
