Who are we

Founder's View

I have always felt the need for a helpline service which provides instant relief, comfort, and ongoing support in an emotionally stressful situation concerning our day to day lives, which one can access anytime on an ongoing basis. I have felt the need for the same, at a personal level as well, and this motivated me to start this service in an organized and professional format.

 

Over the last few years, family and social support structures have seen a diminishe role in people’s lives. Hectic work schedules, excessive use of technology and rampant consumerism have played a major role in alienating people from social support networks and relationships, resulting in rise in emotional distress and psychological setbacks.

Few facts

MINDSET
  • People rarely visit a healthcare professional or clinic to discuss day to day emotionally disturbing issues, because it is perceived to be “NOT SERIOUS ENOUGH” to warrant a visit.
TABOO
  • There is a certain amount of embarrassment and taboo associated with anything concerning the mind. One is immediately labelled as “not normal”.
ANONYMITY
  • People dealing with stressful situations regarding their relationships, sexuality, abuse and workplace issues would prefer to maintain complete anonymity.

Vision

TO HELP PEOPLE COPE WITH EMOTIONAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL ISSUES WITH DIGNITY AND RESPECT AND DEVELOP PRODUCTS AND SERVICES TO IMPROVE THEIR QUALITY OF LIFE.

The word “zyego”

Two essential elements

  • “e” in zyego stands for technology. Our platform will use all relevant and emerging technologies to deliver the best possible experience to the user and make the service easily accessible and scalable.
  • “zygo”, the residual words, are a short form of zygomaticus, a group of facial muscles essential for a person to smile.

Counselling

Our approach

  • Emotional wellness has to be practiced regularly, on a preventive basis, to improve quality of life, as part of a process of self development and improvement.
  • We believe that its time people realize the importance of mental and emotional wellness in their daily lives and have access to trained professionals in an easy, affordable and sustainable way.
  • Awareness of the need and ease of access will remove the taboo associated with mental and psychological issues people face in their day to day lives
  • Technology will play a major role in standardizing the delivery format and making it accessible to a large section of people without the constraints of time and space.

What is counselling?

It is the process of being self-aware and having the capability to think and feel emotions with clarity and understanding. Counselling is a type of talking therapy that allows a person to talk about their problems and feelings in a confidential and dependable environment. A counsellor is trained to listen with empathy (by putting themselves in your shoes) and can help you deal with any negative thoughts and feelings

When do we need counselling?

Counselling aims to help you deal with and overcome issues that are causing emotional pain or making you feel uncomfortable. It can provide a safe and regular space for you to talk and explore difficult feelings. The counsellor is there to support you and respect your views. They won’t usually give you advice, but will help you find your own insights into and understanding of your situation and problems.
