Counselling For Video Game Addiction

The online video game industry is one of the most flourishing industries in the world. Parents were compelled to provide mobile phones to their children in this time of Pandemic. The pandemic has caused a surge in the alternative way of education in E-learning platforms. Instead of using the mobile phone for learning purposes, the children have started playing online games. Most of them prefer to play online multiplayer games with their friends, which is highly addictive because there is no ending and the player enjoys his/her game character. The gamer develops a strong emotional attachment and preoccupation with gaming. Slowly the craving for gaming escalates and ultimately takes over their lives. The addiction to these online games leads the way to depression, anxiety, OCD(Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), diminished goal orientation, lack of social skills, sleeplessness, uncontrollable Anger, aggression, anti-social behaviors, self-centered thought patterns, loneliness, etc.

Depending upon the severity of the addictive behavior and the possibility of co-occurrence of other behavioral issues our therapist helps the client to create a way out of the addiction. We help clients to think about the consequences of engaging long hours in online gaming and discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the client before starting the gaming. We provide easy tasks to clients to reach a larger goal. In normal cases with a few sessions, the client will be successful to regain his lost personality talents, and abilities.
