Therapy is nothing but a process of exploring thoughts

Therapy is often viewed as either a concept that can magically cure you overnight or something that continues to be heavily stigmatized.

Therapy isn't the same for every individual, so we aim to bring awareness about mental health and help in making mental health an absolute priority. The Mind and company strives to help change lives with the help of a vast and still growing team of psychologists and psychiatrists all hailing from different specialisations. We at The Mind and Company aim to support, guide, and provide help to every individual needing therapy or counselling.
