Zen Counseling is a simple form of counseling in a Zen Way.
Zen Counselor believes that when you have a problem/issue, you also have an answer/solution for it. Zen Counselor helps you to find your own answer. Actually, no one else’s answer will work for you; it has to come from within you.
Another major difference between Zen-Based Counseling & traditional Counseling is that Zen Counselor sees you as a Buddha, not as a patient. Zen Counselor will listen to you & your problem with compassion & open loving heart without any judgments. This will help you open more & speak about your problem. The more you speak; your problem comes more in awareness. Once you see clearly with awareness, it is much easier to find a solution, which is just right next to your problem.
ZEN Counseling is effective in all kinds of problems like anxiety, depression, mental disorders, health problems, studies or relationship issue, financial or even spiritual issues.
Each session of Zen Counseling lasts about 60 – 90 minutes and depending on your problem, you may require 3-4 sessions. Sometimes, one may find a solution in one single session as well.

“When I first heard about Zen Counseling Technique, me being a practitioner of Japanese Zen Archery, I immediately got attracted to it. When Kenchi Ishimaru proposed that Zen Counseling would solve all your problems, I did not believe him. I wanted to see it myself, and after the training, it was true, I found solution to all my problems.
Since 2009, after getting trained myself as Zen Counselor, I practice it in my Holistic Practice. Zen Counseling helped so many people find their solutions to their problems. I also work as a Counsellor with 1096 Zindagi Helpline by Police Commissioner Ahmedabad to help people solve their problems.
I love Zen Counseling, it is very helpful to mankind. That is why I have created International Zen Counselling Association & training the best Zen Counsellors all over the world” – Dr. Ronak Gandhi
