We at The Thinking Palette believe that each one is born unique and once we get in touch with our own inner capabilities and accept ourselves for who we are, we are able to strike a healthy balance and live in harmony with ourselves, others and finally the world at large. The Thinking Palette was founded on the premise that the most effective way to promote positive change is to self-empower each and every individual to reach their highest potential.

We believe in dealing with perspectives and not just problems. We understand that various people come to us with different perspectives of life. Everyone needs someone to listen to their stories and share their pain. But to help heal from the pain, it is more important to understand the psychology of the person, the emotional impact of the situation, and the root cause. Which is why our approach involves use of wide variety of psychological models and techniques which caters to each client’s issue in their own individual way.

We see counselling as a process that develops positive coping skills and leads to long term happier states of being and existing.

Our Areas of Therapeutic Work
Individual Counselling

Individual counselling involves working with the individual on a one-on-one basis in order to address his or her needs and difficulties. We aim to provide you a safe, non-judgemental and secure environment where you can share your emotional difficulties or problems without feeling any discomfort. These difficulties could be something you are facing in day to day life, a situation you If the Plan doesn’t work, Change the Plan but never the Goal. are unable to deal with, a decision you find difficult to make, a relationship you find difficult to handle, a past you are unable to get over or emotions and feelings that you find difficult to accept and deal with.

At The Thinking Palette, we use a combination of both traditional and new age psychotherapies – eastern and western sciences, in order to assist people with these struggles and to overall help them create a happier space in life for themselves.

Career Counselling

Did you know how important it is for a person to choose the right career? As per a study in the UK, 80% of individuals feel they have chosen the wrong career. This is where Career counselling comes in. It is a domain of counselling that focuses on helping individuals find the right career pathway.

At The Thinking Palette, we understand that every individual is unique. We focus on the potentials, aptitude, motivations, skills and shortcomings of our clients with the use of carefully designed assessment tools. We determine the individual’s strengths, weaknesses, learning pattern, their interests using fingerprint testing (DMIT), aptitude test and IQ test.

DMIT (Dermatoglyphics Multiple Intelligence test) is the latest and most trending way of mapping a person’s brain. In DMIT, the fingerprints of the individual are recorded using a scanner, then a report is generated that gives complete details of the individual’s personality, strengths, weaknesses and potential. Research suggests 85 – 90% accuracy for this approach. It is considered more effective than any psychometric test. Also, the results remain consistent through out life as our fingerprints do not change!

Benefits of DMIT

Discover Inborn Strength and Weakness
Makes Academic & Career choices easier
Enhance the learning experience by identifying Preferred Learning Styles
Personalize Academic and Extra Curriculum Programs
Build Confidence

Counselling done on the basis of fingerprint reports give a clearer picture to the students to choose a career options based on their abilities and skill sets.

Based on these reports we work along with the individual to find the best potential career choice. From helping you choose the right board, course,  college to choosing the right job, we aim to guide you in mapping the entire pathway to the desired goal.

Relationship Counselling

Man is a social animal. How often we are told this, since school. Good relationships, be it husband – wife, friends, partner can make life worth living. Bad relationships can scar our lives forever. An in-depth understanding of relationships can widen one’s perception of oneself as well as the world.

At The Thinking Palette, we work with couples through marriage counselling in individual and joint sessions in order to resolve relationship and marriage problems.

Our Focus Areas:

  • An improved understanding of oneself and one’s partner
  • Gaining insight into each other’s personalities, needs and expectations
  • Developing better communication skills
  • Understanding and accepting differences
  • Anger management and mindfulness in relationships

We do our best to help both partners envision the healthy relationship they want to be in and work towards creating and sustaining it. Although our key focus is the relationship, addressing self-growth and self-enhancement in each partner is inevitable as achieving comfort with oneself is the first step towards achieving comfort in relationships. We understand that until we are able to love and accept ourselves, it is nearly impossible to truly do so with our partners. Hence, we focus on both individual needs as well as the relationship.
