In the modern times, life has become simple. There are gadgets and machines to make life convenient and fast. Alongside the time-saving trends, people are getting busier and doing so much more in a day’s span. Yet, at the end of the day, there is emptiness and a feeling of void. It is as if that no matter what and how much they do, they cannot feel complete. Self-esteem is at rock-bottom. This gives rise to psychological problems and anxiety.

A very lucid example of this is what social media does to us. You check into Facebook or Instagram. You see the lives of others, and how happy they are in their own zones! They don’t seem to have anything that bothers them in the least! While you stalk their happy lives, you become acutely aware of how troublesome your own life is.

You have real issues to deal with, about jobs, personal lives, family and the like. You look at your peers from school and college. You become acutely jealous of what they have achieved in their lives and how far they have raced ahead. Result: you feel a choking attack of depression.

Psychological Counselling in Kolkata | Psychiatrist in Kolkata | Psychological problems

Studies have shown how people can be so much happier if they ditch social media networks like Facebook! But they are such a necessary evil these days. Work pressure adds to this cause. You return home stressed and full of anxiety. For most, the next day’s job isn’t secure either.

The collective weight on your psyche is too much for most to bear. They break down and develop mental issues which largely lie undetected and untreated. It is your near ones who feel the ill-effects first. However, when they suggest you opt for psychological counselling, you brush off their advice and suggestions.

The adverse effects of psychological disorders, a common by-product of modern lifestyle, can cause immense mental and physical health hazards. Instead of ignoring them, you should consult the best psychiatrist in Kolkata. It will help you overcome the pitfalls of modern life and lead a healthy, happy life. A period of meditation every morning, some light exercises and a healthy lifestyle can go a long way in helping you overcome the blues that might otherwise steal the sheen of your life.

Get in touch with us, the best psychological counselling in Kolkata, today and live a better life tomorrow.


In an analysis in 2013, Prof Daniel Freeman, Clinical Psychologist at the Oxford University found that nearly 40% of women are more likely to develop mental illness compared to men. His study showed that women are 75% more likely to have suffered from depression and about 60% are more likely to suffer from anxiety disorder. Irrespective of gender, mental health issues affect both men and women but, there are certain mental issues that affect more women than men. Here’s a list of mental disorders that affect women:

1. Depression

Women are more likely to suffer from depression compared to men. An article published in Psychology Today in 2012 mention that since hormone levels in women fluctuates more than men (especially around childbirth and menopause), they are more susceptible to depression. Also, women have a genetic tendency of developing depression compared to men. Women process Serotonin, the feel-good hormones, at a much slower rate than men. That’s why they are more prone to depression.

2. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Though Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is more associated with men, especially war veterans but women are twice as likely to develop PTSD, following a traumatic experience, than men are. According to National Center for PTSD (2015), compared to men, traumatic experiences are more common in women (such as sexual or physical abuse). About 5 out of 10 women experience at least one traumatic event in her life and these events often trigger PTSD. They found that nearly 10% of women, compared to 4% of men, are likely to develop PTSD.

3. Anxiety

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) mentions that women are more likely to develop anxiety than men. They further mention that anxiety disorders appear early in women than in men. The difference in the brain chemistry of men and women is the reasons behind this. The brain system that triggers fight-or-flight response is easily activated in women. And it remains activated for a much longer time than in men. Moreover, the female brain doesn’t process Serotonin as quickly as the male brain; this makes the women vulnerable to anxiety disorder.

4. Eating Disorders

About 85%-95% of women suffer from eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. 65% of the female population suffers from binge eating. An article published in WebMD Health news mentioned that Anorexia is a fatal psychiatric disorder as it carries a higher risk of death. A study at the University of Leicester in 2011 found that Anorexia has double the death risk of Schizophrenia and thrice the death risk of Bipolar Disorder. Women are constantly bombarded with the concept of “perfect” body through various media and other societal influences. This affects their psyche and they develop a distorted idea regarding their body image.
