On Balance Counselling

Your well-being matters!

Hello! Does this apply to you?

Here’s how counselling can help:

Counselling is a form of ‘talk therapy’ that can help you navigate through some of life’s problems. It gives you a platform to speak openly about yourself – your feelings, challenges and frustrations. If you think you’re suffering from anxiety, depression, stress due to work, family, friendships, communication issues (anything, really!), then my professional expertise can help you, I am here to help you
to make some sense of issues that arise,
to navigate through life’s challenges, and
find some balance with the care and attention you deserve!

As a committed and certified counsellor, your well-being and mental strength is my number one priority.All sessions are strictly confidential!

I am humbled to hear…

“Got Naina’s reference through a friend during the most trying times of Covid-19, when stress was possibly at its peak!! Naina heard me out entirely and suggested some very simple and basic changes which helped not just manage stress but also improve my productivity and my family life. A month later am still following her recommendations and benefitting from the same. Have recommended her to most people and will continue to do so.”

“I would really like to thank you for the counselling sessions we had. On Balance Counselling helped me address my inner concerns when I was suffering from depression back then. I would like to not only appreciate your efforts in understanding my life & situation but also to express my heartfelt gratitude to you. Your weekly sessions motivated me to re-charge. This had a huge impact on me and I felt peaceful thereafter

“On Balance Counselling was a blessing for me that came just at the right time in my life. I loved Naina’s approach in our session, which allowed me to reflect on my situation in a systematic way without any judgement or challenging tools to use. Naina’s careful guidance put me at ease during our sessions and created a safe environment where I felt comfortable to open up and explore my thoughts and feelings. What was always useful for me is the fact that each session ended with a summary or reflection of what we achieved and simple tools I could use to address my problems”.

“Whatever I write about Naina will not do her justice. Therapy with her was so fulfilling. I loved that there was a plan, there were goals and we worked on it together . She genuinely wanted me to get better and she guided me through years and years of issues. It literally changed my life. I think differently and I feel differently about myself because of Naina. Her intentions are so genuine, so caring and she gave me so many AHA moments. I will forever be grateful for the guidance she has given me and I will forever be grateful to her for opening my eyes and letting me value myself more. Thank you Naina. It has been one of the most important experiences of my life. You are doing a great service to us all. Thank you… thank you… Thank you :)”.

“There are a few people with whom you want the time to stop, simply because their presence and conversations leave you feeling good about yourself, feel positive and hopeful again. And if your counsellor turns out to be that person, you’d never want the sessions to end, never mind the fact, she helped you find your strength and independence again so that you go out and live a life with renewed self-confidence. Thank you Naina, for really listening to me. Thank you for making me reflect upon my own thoughts, see new perspectives and draw my own conclusions. Speaking openly and comfortably about my issues, challenges and adversities greatly helped me in improving my overall life-condition and state of mind. I feel aligned with my feelings again. My self-esteem and confidence has improved. Thank you for making me understand myself better”.

“From those dark thoughts a way out seemed impossible to me a few weeks ago. The courage to speak up was an immense decision but whom to speak was a concern. Counselling sessions with Naina was more of chatting with a friend who sees you as you are. Oftentimes, she uncovered many underlying traumatic experiences breathing within. She did this from normal conversations. She ensures that help is administered not through medicines but by your own self. Making you empowered and self- compassionate when you walk out of the D (depression) world. She smiles and you will smile along, that’s the magic. Thank you for the balance, On Balance counselling!”

“Firstly, I would like show my appreciation for the patience you have shown in understanding the key issues for which I decided to seek counselling. I had lost my beloved mother which was followed by a long spell of the pandemic. My entire perception of counselling changed after I interacted with you. We all need a go-to person at every stage in our life and there is no weakness to acknowledge that. I felt an urgent need to delve deeper and address all the negatives that I felt I had. I am very thankful that through therapy you helped me address my thoughts and concerns. I am also very thankful to the close friend who had recommended your name to me. When I was undergoing therapy, some close friends noticed that they had noticed my change in behaviour which was really pleasing to hear. Your patience in understanding, evaluating and accessing the issues were commendable. Thank you Naina, for the assistance you have given”

About

Naina Bhatia

I am an online therapist, based in Singapore.

I am a graduate from Monash University, Australia with a degree in Masters of Counselling, a Level 1 Accredited Online Therapist, and Level 1A DIY Basics for Online Therapy with the Australian Therapy Online Training (AOTT) Institute, Australia. Lastly, I am also a member of Singapore Association of Counselling (SAC).

While working with clients to treat various issues (such as anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, work-related situations to name a few), I like to integrate Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) within a framework of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

I believe that therapy should be a nurturing experience for my clients so that they are able to explore their true feelings in their own unique situation. Therefore, I like to adopt a people-centred approach, as every individual is different and the challenges they face are their very own.

I am passionate about building trust with empathy and compassion to enable clients to heal, find balance and live their lives that is closely aligned to their own values. Over the years, I have worked in many voluntary programs in several countries. This has given me insights into varied human experiences in different cultural contexts and inspired me to continue working and serving in a helping profession.
