- “Dark Side of Positive Vibes”- In Conversation with Liza Hazarika February 19, 2022
Think Positive, Act Positive and Be Positive has always been the mantra towards mindfulness. Have we ever wondered if there could be a limit to the amount of positivity one can afford? Remain optimistic, but pay attention when you are deluged with toxic positivity. It can turn counterproductive as all other human feelings are swept under the rug. Let all emotions gush through you to awake the real human within.
Ms Liza Hazarika, Student Counsellor, SRM University-AP is organising an exciting and informative session, Dark Side of Positive Vibes to throw light into the different shades of positivity. Learning to look at the brighter side of things is important; it is equally important to not ignore other inevitable impulses that shape up in your mind. Every emotion is meant to be experienced and prevailed over. It is a mixture of anger, fear, pain, envy, and disgust that makes you the real you.
Date: February 19, 2022
Time: 6.30 pm IST
Stay tuned for an illuminating session to enlighten yourselves on the ramifications associated with toxic positivity. Sometimes you can go beyond staying positive to fight your inner demons.Continue reading →

- “Counselling VS Psychiatry”- learn with Liza Hazarika January 21, 2022
The Department of Student Affairs organises a session with Ms Liza Hazarika, Student Counsellor, SRM University-AP, on the difference between “Counselling VS Psychiatry” on January 21, 2022, at 04.00 pm.
People often use the terms “Psychiatrist” and “Counselling” interchangeably. It is a common confusion among people who are not related to the field of psychiatry or psychology. There are differences between the two professions when it comes to their education, training, and scope of practice. In today’s era, when people are more than often suffering from emotional or mental problems and hesitate to visit a professional, it is important to know the difference. We often forget that keeping our minds healthy is equally important as keeping our bodies healthy. Youngsters often go through many emotional and psychological problems without being able to share those with anyone. The session Counselling Vs Psychiatry will help you understand the role of a Counsellor in your well-being.
Ms Liza Hazarika was associated as a psychologist with Forward Seamen’s Union of India and with Pratishruti Cancer and Palliative Trust as a volunteer and psychologist. Ms Hazarika is a certified Spiritual therapist from Amrit Asmi Institute. She believes in a holistic approach to treatment. She is the founder of Call For Healing, a space for spiritual practices. Ms Hazarika is also actively involved in several Non-Governmental Organisations working in areas of mental health. She has done her Master’s in Clinical psychology and Bachelor’s in Psychology from Handique Girl’s College, Guwahati.
Join her on January 21, 2022, at 04.00 pm to learn more on the difference between “Counselling VS Psychiatry”.Continue reading →
- On the importance of self-love and self-acceptance January 19, 2022
Self-acceptance and self-love are essential aspects of quality health and happiness. The Department of Student Affairs at SRM University-AP organises an interactive session with Student Counsellor Ms Sridevi Srinath to inculcate in students the importance of valuing and respecting oneself, embracing both the positive and negative facets. The session titled “Self-Love & Self-Acceptance” will be held on January 19, 2022, at 4.00 pm through online mode.
Setting our standards and metrics directly impacts our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. We shut ourselves off from the energy that keeps us alive when we refuse to accept ourselves. Those who don’t love and accept themselves get disconnected from life, falling prey to significant health consequences. The happier you are, the more you appreciate yourself.
You’ll only be happy to the extent that you believe you’re deserving of it. Therefore, brace yourself for this enlightening session on January 12, 2022, at 4.00 pm.Continue reading →

Ms Aayushi Sharma, the resident Student Counsellor, is bringing forth an exciting interactive session on Test Anxiety and Learning Styles on November 20, 2021, at 6.00 pm IST.
With exams facing this way, the cool season could get a little sweaty unless we learn to curb our stress and anxiety. So instead of dreading the ticking clock, it is time to command it. How well we perform in examinations will depend on how well we have understood our subjects.

It can also serve as a chance to assess our strengths so that we might build on them. Instead of looking at examinations with a pessimistic outlook if we look at them optimistically, we might even be able to use them as tools to help us as career guides.
So do not miss this riveting talk on November 20, 2021, at 6.00 pm IST to stay on track, focused and motivated.Continue reading →
