Psychologist and Marriage Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo, shares some important personality tips of making an effective impression in a party.
·Be yourself Personality of every individual is unique and varies from person to person. A lot of times people tend to copy the personality and behaviour of famous people or of the people who inspired or impressed them in the past.
Remember you cannot acquire a personality; you can only develop the personality that you already have.

So do not try to acquire a fake personality. Try to develop the personality that you already have. Brush up the skills and make your personality more pleasing. This will help yo…

Psychologist and Relationship Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo shares that body language is one of the vital factors that determine a person’s success both in professional and personal life. Today she shares some vital points;
1. Always try to keep your posture relaxed: Remember to stand up straight, but don’t tighten up so much that you look rigid and nervous. If you’re a natural sloucher, make sure to check your posture sporadically and straighten up as needed.

Relationship counselling: Before a gap turns into a gulf
Vijeta (29)* and Vishal (27)* married nearly four months ago after dating for more than two years. They call themselves a happy couple, but it took a great deal of effort for them to get there. Almost one year into the relationship, they had trouble bonding. Each carried the baggage of past relationships and though they were committed to getting married, it was hard to accommodate the other’s history. “We wanted to improve our relationship and decided to meet a counsellor,” says Vijeta, a marketing professional. The sessions were held once a week and lasted for nearly an hour. The couple was given questionnaires designed to reflect their personality and thoughts. The replies helped the counsellor understand their individual strengths and weaknesses and offer suggestions accordingly. It helped a great deal, they say. “We could understand ourselves and our insecurities. Once I realised that I was jealous because she was still in t…

Questions You Must Ask Before Getting Married

When it comes to marriage don’t rush to the decision nor do just keep nodding your head with a smile to your future spouse and in-laws, says marriage counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo.  She says it’s very important that both the girl and the boy MUST ask  right questions before getting married. 
Psychologist and relationship expert Shivani also says that due to shyness, lack of interest or a desire to preserve romantic mystery; many couples do not ask each other the difficult questions that can help build a strong foundation for a stable marriage .
Hence if you don’t deal with an issue before marriage, you deal with it while you’re married, it can be hard to keep secrets decades after decades, and reticence before the wedding can lead to disappointments down the line. The following questions, intimate and sometimes awkward, are designed to spark honest discussions and possibly give couples a chance to spill secrets before it’s too late.

1. Did your family fight or calmly discuss issues or s…

Do you know the 5 languages of Love?

Is it possible to have a language for love? Yes, said world’s prominent marital counselor Dr. Gary Chapman. There are 5 love languages or five universal ways in which we express and interpret love. Although there are five types of love languages but most people lean heavily on one or two and are usually drawn to people who "speak" a different love language than themselves. Below are the 5 types of love languages that can be applied to all the relationships in your life.
1.Words of affirmation Some people value what they hear, like "I love you" or other words of appreciation or compliments. These individuals feel that words have more weight than actions and would rather hear "the reasons behind that love" versus any other expression of love. This also means that if something negative or insulting is said to one of these individuals, it will not be easily forgiven.
2.  Quality time For some people spending time with loved ones is their preferred love language. …

Do You Still Date? – Why is Dating important after marriage is essential?

When Marriage Counsellor Shivani Misri Sadhoo asks couples, when was the last time they have had a date? The common answer she receives is, “we are already married, why should we date” or they refer their dating activity as family outings or they say we do not time for ourselves.  First of all, every married couple must understand that dating is an essential process to rejuvenate marital relationship in today’s fast-moving and stressful life. Secondly, couples must understand that ·A date is not going to McDonald’s with the children in a mall. ·Kids are not a part of date after marriage. ·Shopping in the departmental store and buying home essentials or grocery is not dating.
Going out with your spouse SOLELY to spend quality time together and nothing else, this concept today is a highly ignored practice in Indian society. Generally, Indian married couples date only in the first 1 or 2 years of their marriage, till they don’t have kids. Many couples may argue that they have not witnessed the…
