The aim of this program is to empower people emotionally and spiritually to live a life of limitless potential. This program is a series of one on one therapeutic and coaching session for the client.
A seed grows into a plant because it is constantly exposed to nurturing environment. Growth of the plant happens organically when we give it the right ingredients and keep uprooting the weeds constantly. In the same way, people grow emotionally, physically and spiritually when we expose them to the right environment and keep them away from their energy deflators. In order to do this, the client is led through 5 stages.
Finding their roots
Finding the weeds
Uprooting the weeds
Exposure to nurturing environment
Growth and flourishing
Through each of these stages, the client will have sessions that will be pertaining to one or more of the following -
Healing the sub conscious hurt
Filling the void
Understanding the mind and its signals
Understanding the body and its signals
Understanding the spirit and its signals
Understanding instinct and impulse
Discovering their values
Choosing their right and wrong
Understanding their sub conscious
Maintaining healthy energy boundaries
Each session will be a mix of all these aspects. The therapy used will be a mix of the following -
Past life regression
Inner Child Healing
Inner masculine and feminine balance
Additionally, you will be coached in vision creation and mindset too.
You are encouraged to choose 1 or 2 outcomes from the above. Even though we have a set program in place, each of these will have a journey that will be uniquely crafted as per your unique context. We believe that your unique negative life experience/issue teaches you certain unique skills/lessons which help you move towards your unique life purpose. Once you analyse your life journey you will be present to some of these inner strengths which fit into creating solutions for some unique gaps in the universe. Through these programs, you will be able to figure out your unique value systems of the rights and wrongs. All these are inner leadership journeys crafted to heal the core issue internally and at the same time create an external environment for your deepest and truest potential to thrive.

T, Female, 32 years - I happened to meet Anshima by a sheer stroke of luck. I was new to the city and one weekend I attended a workshop that she was hosting, called 'befriending our minds'. From start to end during the workshop, she had my attention. She really knew what she was talking about and gave very relatable examples. And the best part about her work- she called me post the workshop to take a feedback on how she could improve the content! It made me believe that she was really passionate about what she does. It was then that she mentioned that she takes personal therapy sessions as well. But these aren't the regular, run of the mill therapy sessions, that you can find at any therapist's office now a days. She excelled in past life regression therapy. It was hard to believe the concept at first, since educated, rational people are wired to think that this kind of therapy won't work. But I was going through some very stressful times and I was desperate to try anything that had the smallest of chance at helping me. And help it did! I cannot thank Anshima enough for helping me see the light at the end of the tunnel. She took regular sessions over the weekend and she helped me clear out a lot of emotional baggage that I did not even know I was carrying. Her methods are very unconventional and even though the mind has the tendency to discard anything that doesn't add up mathematically, her work helped me believe otherwise. It was seamless and really benefited me. She explained everything she did during the sessions and tried to make me as comfortable as possible. She was very detail oriented and tried to understand the root cause of my problems to ensure that isn't just addressing the symptoms. She also gave me customized self care work to do (journaling, earthing etc) that really helped my anxiety a lot. It was a very pleasant experience working with her, and I would recommend her therapy to everyone who is going through tough times in life!
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation. We naturally go into hypnosis twice a day, right before completely sleeping and before completely waking up. It is the in between state of being wakeful and asleep. Hypnosis is an excellent tool to view the contents of your subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a psycho-therapeutic tool being used to heal people since ancient times. It is a state of heightened sensitivity where you are able to feel more. It is an eastern science which has been explained of in detail in our "Atharva Veda".
What is hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy involves accessing the subconscious mind through hypnosis and then using this state to heal unresolved suppressed emotional trauma.
How it works?
The subconscious mind is NOT the rational mind. It is very different from our conscious mind or the rational mind. Our subconscious mind is a repository of all experiences that we've had. When we suppress memories of grief and fear for the fear of being completely broken, we store them in our subconscious mind. We might feel that we have gotten over it but in reality we are not conscious of it in the now. Hence, these memories continue to run our lives, manifesting as anxiety, depression, panic attack, stress, anger, addictions and any other psychological, physical disorders and relationships issues. Simply understood, our experience of life is run by our subconsciously stored experiences and belief systems concluded due to these experiences. Through hypnotherapy, we access these memories, process them and release the emotions associated with them and hence, change the belief systems.
You should also be aware of the fact that this will lead you into spiritual growth. Spiritual growth means being aware of the mind. Hypnosis makes conscious what you are unconscious of. The more you become conscious of the unconscious; you tap into your creativity and true potential. Your life purpose and intuition also starts becoming clear as you tune in with the subconscious mind. Spiritual growth also comes from being able to experience difficult emotions like grief, rejection, anger and shock. Spirituality means being able to see yourself in totality, not only the good parts of you but also the dark and ugly parts of you that you disown for a variety of reasons. These are emotions which we push away because we don't have the skill set to handle them and also because of the societal conditioning of not feeling the bad emotions. Its important to remember that if we wish to laugh hard we have to be able to cry really hard. We cant be selective in experiencing only the good emotions while ignoring the bad ones. If you close the window because there is rain, you wont be able to see the sun shine as well.
The holistic nature of hypnotherapy leads for it to be one of the techniques that not only allows you to heal your presenting issue but also clears other blockages in your life that are not a part of the presenting issue as well. Example You might come in with the presenting issue of anxiety and depression but while working on this your personal relationships and work life will improve as well. You will become aware of yourself and more aligned to your life purpose.
Is hypnotherapy safe?
Hypnosis that's conducted by a trained therapist or health care professional is considered a safe, complementary and alternative medical treatment. You will always wake up light and happy.
What impact will my personal reflection have on me?
Initially, as you reflect on your life journey and process certain life events, you will feel sad, anxious and a host of other emotions that you dont want to feel. However, you will be taught how to navigate through them before you take it up on your own. You have to understand that this is a part of the process of closing the old stories so you can write your own new one. The latter process of creating your own vision will be more empowering and uplifting. Further, it will help you grow in mindset.
Will I be put on medication?
No, you will not be put on any medication of any kind.
Will I be required to take off any medication before I begin therapy?
If you are on anti depressants and mood elevators, you will be requested to keep off them before beginning therapy.
Will the information I share be shared with others?
At Commit To Self, we respect the privacy of each client and guard it at all points of time. In social settings, we never introduce clients as our client but as a friend. We don't disclose any information about the client with anyone, whatsoever.
How do I Choose a Therapist?
All therapists are good but the best one is the one who makes you feel heard and connected and also someone who doesn't try to fix you. A very good practice of choosing therapist is to have an open and honest conversation with him/her before working with them. Knowing the techniques, having a recognized degree from a recognized place is good but what will heal the most is the trust and the connection that you build with the therapist. This therapy is all about you. Your comfort level comes first.
Does hypnotherapy work?
The conventional media has shown hypnosis as some magic and la-la land nuisance which serves zero purpose apart from cheap entertainment value. However, our sages and shamans since time immemorial have used the trance state to heal people of mental trauma and dangerous physical diseases. The best part about this science is that even if you don't believe in it, it works. Relief in mental health (anxiety and depression) of the client is observed immediately after each session. However, the results in the outer world (building new relationships, changing career, physical health issues etc) can be slower. This is dependent on the clients emotional load, surrender towards the therapist and action taking propensity. The lesser the emotional load and the more surrender to the therapist the faster the results in these areas.

Who we are?
Commit To Self is a one of a kind spiritual consultancy cum one on one spiritual mentoring service. We are the first spiritual and mental health services platform which says that anxiety and depression are not bad. Depression is the path to spiritual growth, creativity and life purpose.
We believe that spirituality is all about authenticity and vulnerability. Spirituality is about finding our center and paying attention to our own selves. Spirituality is also about knowing that everyone and everything is connected. We teach this through our workshops which are designed for the inner discovery.
We provide one on one spiritual mentoring service for inner growth. We believe that we get mental health issues and physical health issues when (a) we deviate from our center or (b) when we are not learning what we need to learn from any particular life situation and instead suppress them with medicines and forced positive thinking. Its important to know that everything that happens to us has a reason, which we aren't always aware of.
The solution to these problems lies in knowing who we are and how we function. We need to know the core functioning of mind, body and spirit. We have to know how these three are interconnected into one seamless being that we are. We don't give you solutions. We empower you to find your own solutions to your own issue. Hence, our take on physical and mental health issues stands different from most primary health care providers. We offer this wisdom through our workshops which are designed for this inner discovery to happen organically.
There are two types of workshops that we do
Knowledge based These workshops provide knowledge to the workshop attendees about any particular topic empowering them to use this knowledge for their own growth at their own pace and convenience.
Experience based These workshops are catered to give the attendees a direct experience of a healing modality.
Through these workshops, we give people knowledge to evolve through depression and other painful mental and physical health issues into individuals who use these difficult times to learn the hardest yet the most life changing lessons of their life.
We also run some mentoring programs which are a combination of therapy and spiritual coaching. These programs not only help you release and let go of old redundant patterns but they also help you in building a version of you that you want.
Generally, the mental health crisis sets in when we experience some kind of a loss in our life. Example Loss of a job, loss of a relationship, death of a loved one or loss of health. We start feeling anxious, depressed and we seek to find our answers in life. We might visit a therapist or read books. We try to heal ourselves of the hurt but it doesn't seem to go. We feel a release but it doesn't change our lives forever. We feel stuck and don't find answers anywhere. The question always is - how to get out of where I am?
We are a spirit using a mind and a body. We are pure energy beings. If there is an issue in the body, there is sure to be an issue in the mental and spiritual health of the person. If we feel spiritually disconnected with the purpose of our life, we will feel emotionally drained, lost and confused and further we will feel physically drained of energy and even a small amount of work will feel emotionally and physically demanding.
The issue is that we have dissected our mental, physical and spiritual health into three different individual parts even though there is enough evidence that it works in tandem. Our medical science understands the body very well but they are yet to integrate emotional and spiritual learning to ensure quick recovery of the diseased. A lot of hospitals in America allow spiritual healers to directly work with terminally ill patients. Similar policy level changes are not seen in the Indian context, currently.
However, at Commit To Self, we firmly believe that mental, spiritual and physical health is related. Well, its not just related, it works in tandem to restore harmony in our system. Our vision is to spread this knowledge among people and provide people with customized solutions to their unique issue. Our vision is to create an army of people who lead from within and who lead a life of purpose. We are building a community of people who can tune into themselves and then change first from with-in and then with-out.
Anshima Gupta in her truest essence is nothing yet everything. She has a love for learning new things and is a student of and for life. She is a spiritual mentor, an educator, a singer, a poetess and a dancer.
Anshima awakened to her truth at the age of 26. Her unusual early awakening is a result of the extreme inner suffering she underwent as a victim of a pattern of emotional, physical and sexual abuse. It is also the result of the untimely death of a close friend through suicide. Further, its also because her career and relationships failed miserably even when the right inputs were put in. It was impossible to be able to piece all of her experiences together into a logical scheme of things. At the age of 18, she questioned her existence and the purpose of life. She read text written by enlightened masters and chose awakening over every other thing. She learned healing techniques to relieve herself of her sufferings but eventually also ended up finding her life purpose. She is a gifted healer and knows a lot of healing techniques intuitively without formally learning them through a class/course. Now, she uses her inner wisdom to help awaken others. 50% of what she teaches is knowledge acquired from her spiritual teachers. The rest comes from what she has learnt from her own life journey and inner awareness. She believes that inner wisdom has nothing to do with old age and grey hair. Inner wisdom is available for everyone in the here and now. It just depends on whether we are open to it.
Anshima is also the founder of Akshar India which is a one on one teaching cum mentoring program for underprivileged children. She has a degree in Economics Honours from SRCC, Delhi University and a Masters degree in Fashion Management from NIFT, Hyderabad. She has a Diploma in Clinical Counselling from the India Institute of Counselling, Delhi and a Diploma in Clinical Hypnotherapy and Past Life Regression from EKAA institute, Mumbai. She has also done a 21 week course on women's spirituality under Rekha Kurup who is the founder of She Stands Tall Project LLP. Commit To Self is borne out of Anshima's triumph over her suffering by choosing herself over everything and everyone else. Through Commit To Self, she teaches people how and why to choose themselves first.
Anshima's Growth Journey
Anshima directly took support from a Clinical Psychologist and Counsellor way back in 2007. She felt supported and heard but she did not feel completely healed to be in a position to say that she was happy or doing the best she could as per the potential she had. Her seeking did not stop because she did not find inner peace. She still felt lost and confused and knew that something within her had changed and she did not know how to interpret it or name it. Its only later in life that she got to know that this was the beginning of her spiritual awakening.
She attended various "satsang's" and spiritual programs which only gave some temporary relief. However, that didn't stop her from attending these programs. Hence, she continued to find recourse in reading spiritual and philosophical content. Ayn Rand, Swami Vivekanada and ISCKON foundation books were the first few reading material she discovered in her universe. A lot of peace came from each of the books she read. She kept on reading more and more psychological and spiritual texts in the hope that she would find her answers some day.
Her seeking further earned her a diploma in psychological counselling and hypnotherapy and past life regression. These tools gave her healing and showed her the hope to heal herself.
In 2015, she started teaching a group of 25 underprivileged children and felt complete for the first time after the initial crisis set in. She felt different and realized this was her purpose and continued to gain happiness from bringing joy in the life of these children and their families. Further on, she realized that her purpose was also to heal other people by teaching them the techniques she used to heal herself. All these realizations came to her organically without any push. She did not shy away from doing anything new. Her journey is definitely not logical by conventional standards. The beauty of her journey is in the surrender she made towards what the universe showed to her. The beauty of her journey is in embracing the randomness and in learning to adapt to every new moment.
