Facing addiction challenges

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques were employed to address the underlying issues contributing to her substance abuse.

Stress management and coping skills

VEDA recognized the importance of equipping Dr. S with effective stress management and coping skills.

  • Mindfulness and meditation: Dr. S learned mindfulness and meditation techniques to cultivate a sense of calm and focus amidst the daily stressors of medical studies. These practices empowered her to navigate challenges with a clearer and more centred mind.
