Corona virus hit the world by January 2020, after which it slowly started to lurk into India by March 2020. This sudden catastrophe started to take a big toll of lives all over the world and had the same effect in India also. The enormous numbers of patients getting admitted were massive and at the same time, the patients recovering were also inversely proportionate. The patients were being diagnosed, and some of them were admitted in the hospitals and the others were advised to being quarantined at home, as there was no space in the hospitals. The stress of being diagnosed positive for corona virus can bring lots of unresolved conflicts for any human.  These clients had a very poor mental state. They had symptoms of loneliness, depression, fear and anxiety about the outcome of the disease. A registry was maintained in a hospital for such clients and they were counselled through their mobiles. The process was challenging and a mind-blowing experience for the counsellor.
