Narayan is a Nepali student in 9th grade. He suffered from headaches, dizziness, and vomiting, and was performing poorly in school. He went to the Nepal Youth Foundation’s Ankur Counseling Center to seek help. Ankur’s counselor found that he was very afraid of the future and felt pressured to excel in school to "be somebody." His fears had produced physical symptoms.
Through techniques including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Sand Play Therapy, Ankur’s psychologist explored Narayan’s problem and reduced his fears. The counselor taught him relaxation techniques and instructed him to study, eat, and sleep according to a set schedule. After six therapy sessions, Narayan passed his high school examinations and is now studying in college.
Psychological therapy is still in its infancy in Nepal. The Nepal Youth Foundation is a leader in counseling for youth. NYF’s Ankur Counseling Center provides therapy to underprivileged children, to enable them to overcome their obstacles and fulfill their dreams.
