About Shrinksdom / Me
Let me first start at the beginning.
My name is Krishan Kalpoe. I’m currently 20 years old. I was always fascinated with the way the human body operates and how the mysterious mind of ours worked. Another major interest of mine was personal development. The books I’ve read about personal development completely changed my life for the better. Finding personal development and our mind very interesting and being intrigued by it, I decided to study psychology.
About a year ago, I started thinking about a concept. A psychologist can only help people locally, because he or she can only help people that live around the practice of the psychologist. I always loved the idea of helping people all over the world. I didn’t want to be restricted to a certain area, just because my practice was in that area. So I was thinking about an idea on how I could help people all over the world. And that’s how the idea of Shrinksdom started.
Explanation of the name Shrinksdom
Very often psychologists are called a ‘shrinks’. There are some theories about why psychologists are being nicknamed for a shrink. The one I find most appropriate is that psychologists, according to the theory, shrinked the patient’s narcissitic, inflated sense of self. I found the nickname ‘shrink’ a very catchy name and a name with a lot of self-deprecating humor (what personally my favourite type of comedy is). The part ‘dom’ stems from the fact, that a psychologist has acquired the wisdom that is needed to help the client with his problems. So that’s why I’ve chosen to name my brand and this site: Shrinksdom.
