‘Antardhwanee’ means ‘an inner sound’, or ‘inner music’. To be tuned to our inner sound is to remain healthy and joyful. However, it is only the rare who can achieve that state of equanimity. In a vast majority of cases, inner sound may become inner noise due to suffering of myriad sorts, that people experience.At Antardhwanee we empower you to deal with whatever you may be faced with and create solutions for living from a strengths based position. We believe that suffering which amplifies to become mental illness need not remain permanent, if people can be supported in ways that honor their reality.

Recovery Oriented Counseling

Did you know that recovery orientation in mental health is a significantly different orientation from the symptom-management approach to dealing with mental health issues? Recovery orientation is based on the idea that recovery is possible from all symptoms of mental suffering, including from chronic conditions of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders, and various other such conditions. By putting people at the center of their own recovery, the recovery- model of counseling in mental health empowers people with mental illness labels to make their own decisions and creates a supportive ecosystem that helps people to recover from their distress, while offering them stability, integration into the mainstream of life and return to social aspects of living.

The recovery orientation in mental health is a recent trend, which is emerging globally in response to the felt need that by psychiatric intervention alone people do not recover from long term mental illness conditions. Instead they are progressively weakened as individuals and families. Recovery orientation also makes a break from the trend of putting Psychiatry and Psychology in the center, as disciplines that translate 'abnormal' human behaviours by themselves, and give labels to what is seen as a deviation from the norm.
