I have received much helpful assistance from the therapy for the past few months.
Gayatri has been very compassionate, patient and kind to listen and to provide encouragement and honest feedback.
She is attentive, very accommodating and helped to challenge difficult thoughts and see difficult situations with a better view which open up my thought and challenge me to be better as well.
Many tools given during the therapy has helped me to improve my mental and emotional state and helped me get grounded.
I get better now compare to the first time I contacted the counsellor.
I am determined to improve my well-being onwards and to live a better life – J
