Episode 7 – Desi divorce discussion – Let’s ask the therapist
August 11, 2022

“Marriage: a hopeful, generous, infinitely kind gamble taken by two people who don’t know yet who they are or who the other might be, binding themselves to a future they cannot conceive of and have carefully omitted to investigate” ~ Alain de Botton

Today I am in conversation with a very special guest, Prachi Vaish. While my previous guests shared their divorce journeys with us, Prachi, a couples therapy expert, has been through the ups and downs of relationships with each of her clients.

Prachi S Vaish is the founder of The Emotional Wellness Initiatives, an an online psychological wellbeing services platform. By qualification, she is a licensed Clinical Psychologist, psychotherapist and a Certified Trauma Recovery expert and has been offering  online therapy in India since 2009.

Prachi has been practicing as a mental health professional for over 16 years and her areas of expertise are couples and intimacy, relationships, and recovery from trauma of abuse.

Unlike my other guests who connected with my after reading book, Rewriting My Happily Ever After – a memoir of divorce and discovery, I was the one who got in touch with Prachi when my book was ready for publication.

When I requested her to read and provide a blurb for the book as an experienced professional in the field of relationships, she kindly agreed and wrote a generous blurb. She has gone on to recommend my book to several of her clients.

In this frank conversation about marital relationships and their current state in India (and among Indians the world over), Prachi had several interesting things to share about:

  1. When do couples approach therapists for help
  2. How stereotypical expectations of each member of the family affect married couples
  3. What tools Prachi uses when she works with couples
  4. What motivated Prachi to jump into this profession
  5. How trauma of toxic and abusive marriages leave scars that need professional assistance to truly move forward

Whether you are single, happily married, considering or going through divorce or helping someone through a relationship breakdown,  please listen to this episode to get insights that may help you or the ones you love.

Well-wishers with good intentions are not trained to provide the kind of professional support needed by couples who are struggling to build a loving, lasting, enabling relationship in the midst of other daily challenges of life.

If you or someone you know needs help, please contact Prachi through her website – The Emotional Wellness Initiatives
