Emotional problems contribute to serious learning and health impairments in children. Indian studies report emotional problems in 10-74% school children. Emotionally disordered/disturbed children are under the care of parents. Therefore, when parents do not recognise or fail to provide sufficient credence to the disturbance, there is no scope for intervention. This may result in devastating effects on growth of the child’s personality and learning process. The negative effect on learning process may result in low levels of scholastic performance, though no overt psychiatric morbidity is recognisable in the clinical sense.

Sometimes, troubles in one part of life can affect another completely unrelated part. Many sexual problems arise like this. The difficulties in sex life may be caused by something else. A very simple example of this is when you have a lot on your mind, you often don’t feel like having sex. This is a very mild and temporary situation, and soon goes away. However, if a problem is more severe it can have stronger and longer-lasting effects on the sex life. Someone may be suffering from stress or may have had a traumatic experience, or feel unhappy with life – it could be any number of reasons. These have a knock-on effect on your sexuality: from a complete lack of desire, to problems with erections or painful intercourse. Psychosexual Therapy can help by getting the root of the problem and then treating it, which can improve sex life.21
To begin with we need to find out what could be causing the sexual problems. This is done simply by talking to the couple, or the patient individually, as preferred (although, it is often more beneficial if both partners are present). In individual sessions, detailed 2 session assessment done separately for each partner.
Once the causing factor of the problem is identified, we can discuss possible ways of treating it. A specific treatment program is devised to help cope and provide practical ways of dealing with it.
Psycho sexual disorders in men
Erectile Dysfunction : where one is unable to sustain the erection to be able to penetrate, hence preventing the intercourse.
Premature ejaculation : here the male ejcualtes before he penetrates , hence not able to have an intercourse.
Psycho sexual disorders in women
Anorgasmia: the women is unable to experience orgasm.
Vaginismus: Because of the muscle contraction of the vagina the intercourse is not able to take place.
Dyspareunia : here the woman experiences a painful intercourse, because of which the sex life is disrupted.
Undeniably, alcohol and tobacco use is becoming more prevalent by the day across the economic strata, and a significant increase in the consumption of these is seen in women too. De-addiction is characterized as the process of recovering addiction, marihuana alcohol , marijuana, cocaine, and psychotropic substances. The person with alcoholism or substance abuse may have depression or may have a compulsive desire for a particular substance or product (gaming, gadgets or sex, etc.).
The deaddiction clinic provides a bio-psycho-social approach to combat the growing problem. This approach incorporates strategies to enhance coping, reduce craving, manage triggers, and prevent relapse. It allows people to find ways of managing difficult emotions, coping with negative life circumstances, enhancing social support for sobriety, and establishing a lifestyle free of substance abuse is essential to long-term recovery. Therefore, recovery from addiction requires a bio-psychosocial approach with attention paid to biological, psychological, and social aspects of addiction.

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental illness that causes recurrent unwanted thoughts or feelings (obsessions) or the urge to do something (compulsions) over and over. Some people may experience both obsessions and compulsions.
Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), and/or medicine are the most common therapies for OCD. More precisely, the most common therapies are a form of CBT called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), with the best evidence to support its use in OCD care, and/or a class of medications called serotonin reuptake inhibitors or SRIs.
ERP involves gradual exposure to a feared stimulus or obsession, such as dirt, and learning ways to resist the urge to do your compulsive rituals. ERP takes time and practice, but once control over obsessions and compulsions is learnt, it massively improves the quality of life.
