We do not provide counseling to help you work through your problem, therefore, our relationship with you is not a therapeutic relationship. If you choose to access services from a mental health care provider, then your therapeutic relationship will be with them. A therapeutic relationship is developed between a therapist and client with a view to bringing about a desired change for the client. A therapeutic relationship includes essential components that enhance the effectiveness of treatment and the promotion of change. It is built on non-judgement, confidentiality, trust, empathy, acceptance, safety, and therapeutic goals.
Our relationship with you is educational. Our goal is to provide you with information to help you make more informed decisions about getting help for your problem(s). We do not offer advice, therefore, we do not take responsibility for the decisions you make regarding the services you access.
We do not contact providers on your behalf, you are responsible for accessing the resources you need. We do not contact any other third party on your behalf. We only work with the individual who has contacted Your Desi Helpline to provide information to assist them.
