I’m writing after a gap of a little over a year.. What better way and time to re-start, than NOW 🙂 . This post is more of a personal happy update on my clinic office, Sattva.
My work space has shifted from a medical clinic set-up to a private psychotherapy office (late 2013). I’ve finally reached the name I’m satisfied with after a couple of months work of thinking, and wish to announce and share it with everyone – It’s named SATTVA 🙂 . It means- True Alignment. That pretty much sums up the general direction of counseling goals I have in mind as a counselor. And I’m very happy after months of googling, discussing with friends and family, along with client feedback and brainstorming with myself for finally having found an apt single word that says exactly what I mean to.
Setting the place up was another challenge. Clinic location, the seating inside, it’s position, the couch, wall colour, nick-nacks- what to add, what to leave, the general feel of the space.. it took a lot of researching, introspection, going over client feedback over the years… and shopping. While I’ve only begun adding the little touches, the office is very much operational and am contented with the cozy, warm yet spacious enough place for people to feel just enough comfort to be able to open up and discuss painful things as well as feel lighter. Couldn’t have done it without family and friends 🙂
It’s nice and green and brown 🙂 . While I feel the space is great, clients too have shared they like the warm space hundred times better than meeting in a clinical setting. The couch helps accelerate things as well, as I have been witnessing. So all set for 2014, I’m ready for this additional year to enrich life.
