Q: What inspired you to be part of this profession?

Ans: I wanted to be in this profession because I wanted to understand mind and how does this work. Growing up as a gay man, I wanted to know how do we feel, am I the only one feeling like this? Can this change? If not, then how to accept it? How to live life confidently?

Q: How do you help people in developing their productivity?

Ans: I first figure out what their goals are and what are their methods in working towards it? Then I see what all new things can be added or are missing? And what existing strength needs to be built on? I check the health of their goals, figure their philosophy and work on their self confidence, behavioural, emotional and other backdrops needed. Affect is cognitive.

Ans: The meaning of the word peace is to accept life as it comes.

Q: Any message for youth?

Ans: Try to look for, how unique you are and accept it. You don’t have to look like anyone on Facebook or Instagram, you have to be you. It is your life; you have to live it on your own terms.

Q: Would you like to add something?

Ans: I would like to give a message for the queer youth. You should accept your sexuality. Do not doubt yourself; work on your talents and live life like you want to be. Don’t bother about what people say and relate you with, your life is yours and you have to handle it in your own way.
