What is eGuru?
eGuru is the future of therapy. It also offers lifelong coaching and mentorship. It is not an app. It is a set of apps. It is a philosophy. It is designed to deliver low-intensity interventions for common emotional health problems. It will also provide life coaching for a successful, happy and spiritually enriched life. It is based on principles of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. However, it also borrows techniques from other evidence-based interventions. Unlike the currently available apps which do not go beyond thought diaries, eGuru is a complete therapy solution. It also offers support for a variety of issues. A unique feature of the eGuru is a basic formulation, termed as the “circle of thoughts”. It also provides a “safe room” that you can use when things get tough. Choice of the therapist is an essential component of engagement. eGuru gives you the option of choosing your therapist. Most importantly; eGuru is constantly evolving and growing.

What is CBT?
CBT focuses on correcting distorted thinking patterns and altering behaviors to relieve self-defeating attitudes, reduce symptoms, and improve well-being. eGuru is based on self help manuals developed and tested by the team.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been proven to be the most effective psychological therapy for a range of problems including PTSD, panic attacks, generalised anxiety, OCD, and some eating disorders, and is among the most effective for depression and some personality disorders. More recently research has found it to be effective for psychosis. It is also used worldwide for personal growth and development and is widely used by success coaches.
We are living in the age of digital CBT, i.e., CBT delivered through digital media. Studies show that digital cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is just as effective as traditional face-to-face therapy. All our programs are based on CBT and provide you with the information, tools and guidance you need to overcome your problems.
