When the whole world was thinking about their Friday night plans. I, Yatharth Sharma and some other wise people were witnessing an eye-opening session on How to practice Acceptance by Mr. Rihan Nasir, a proud stutterer, at the TISA’s National Conference 2021.

Feel The FEAR..

Counseling Tales : Indecision, self-doubt, Fear We in the north India have some funny stereotypes about South! May or may not be true but we love them.

The Hook

It is always difficult to ask for help. We think that it diminishes us. So even when we go to a friend or a counsellor, we may never come to the point. We may keep dilly dallying for a long time- may be too long! But if you are a peer/counsellor, you will wait patiently, […]

My Story – Naveen Deshmukh

My story – I do not want to term this as a success story! But yeah it is certainly a journey of overcoming adversaries. Childhood – Ignorance is bliss: My stammering dates back to when I was around 8 years old, had a near-death experience when I drowned in the rainwater which had flooded my […]
