Q.
I am 21-year-old male and I am in a relationship with a girl who has just finished her schooling. My friend has had a very tough childhood with a lot of physical and verbal abuse from her parents and very little love. The outcome of trauma has been her very anxious and helpless personality and, as a result, she has locked herself behind these emotional walls. What can I do to help her? — Karan Pratap

It is appreciable that you want to help her break the emotional barriers and rescue herself. Perhaps, like many who have loved someone in emotional pain and wanted desperately to help that person, you haven’t asked your friend the most important question: Do you want to change? If she wants to heal herself and is willing to take action to do so, then you have a great opportunity. But if she is resistant to start a journey of recovery, your friend may be emotionally incapable of ­having a healthy relationship.

It is advisable to respect her emotional state by extending unconditional positive support and have the patience to catch the non-verbal cues which will slowly help her regain confidence with you. It is advisable to consult a counsellor. --- Jitendra Nagpal
Q.
I am a 19-year-old boy in my first year of college. I am very anxious about making new friends and as a result, I stammer while talking in front of a larger group. While discussing the issue with my ­parents, they told me that as a child I had this problem which improved with time. I feel very depressed and avoid talking to people. Please guide me. —A Sharma

Stammering can be a cause of many reasons like emotional problems, lack of coordination between speech muscles and external stimuli. In your case, it seems that the stammering is related to your anxiety about a new environment. Try some deep ­breathing exercises where you have to hold your breath and release them slowly as it would help in controlling the anxiety. Do not hold yourself from speaking; instead, try to indulge in spontaneous conversation. Being apprehensive about ­verbal communication could worsen the situation. Try practising to speak but do it assertively in front of a mirror and known people. Role play can work as a great tool to improve your communication skills. You can imagine situations which trigger anxiety in you and role play with a person who is socially confident and can guide you how to act in these instances. Never acknowledge yourself with harsh words like getting stuck, hard talking, etc. ---- Jitendra Nagpal
