Counselling & psychotherapyCounselling and psychotherapy are two methods to examine and treat mental health problems. In counselling, a patient usually talks to a trained therapist about their concerns while psychotherapy involves other creative methods such as art, movement & music along with talking.
Relaxation techniquesRelaxation techniques are guided methods that allow individuals to relieve stress and develop better coping methods. These techniques include visualisation, deep breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, meditation, aromatherapy, biofeedback and hydrotherapy.
Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)Cognitive behavioural therapy is a tool to treat disorders like depression and PTSD.

The mental health department of the CK Birla Hospital is a wonderful space. I started taking consultations with Dr Sonali Bali for my anxiety problems. I was struggling at work and had difficulty maintaining peace in my relationships at home and with friends. I decided to take therapy sessions with her. First of all, the hospital’s ambience is just great and very comfortable. I felt at ease during all my sessions. And secondly, the doctor is just wonderful. She addresses your concerns very rightly. Her advice has really helped me. Great services Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
Excellent services at the mental health department. I had been suffering from Major Depressive Disorder and the other doctor I was consulting was not compassionate. Dr Sonali Bali, however, is the best psychiatrist I have met. She is very kind and understanding and helpful. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
My experience at the CK Birla Hospital has been great. I was experiencing anxiety disorder that had physical manifestations that became bothersome for me. My health was becoming worse and was affecting my work and life until I met Dr Sonali Bali. She is a brilliant doctor who has helped change my life. It was her medicines and her guidance that pulled me out of that phase. And I am very thankful to her and the staff of the hospital. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
