WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Reena has all the makings of a good counselor in my experience and I glad that I found her! I went to her on account of a bereavement of a close family member and even thought it was outside my immediate family it was a really painful and distressing time of my life as we were very close. I have a history of emotional distress and the bereavement was very hard to deal with especially as it came on the back of other ongoing distress and Reena was instrumental in helping me work through some long standing issues that were exacerbating the situation. Seeking timely help and finding a counselor who is empathetic and involved made all the difference…
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Reena has helped me immensely by using EMDR and cognitive behaviour therapy to get over my social anxiety. I have seen a lot of improvement in myself by talking about my problems with her and trying to solve them. She also provided me with a ton of helpful strategies to overcome stress and family-related issues.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I started seeing Reena for my daughter who was then 16 years old and undergoing social anxiety .
( She is 18 now) .
She had been seeing other counsellors before but with little avail as each relationship connects differently .
With Reena, we both felt comfortable talking, felt she understood the real issue , never felt judged and most importantly, she built real trust in my daughter that went a long way in her opening up .
Reena till date hasnt shared what my daughter has discussed with her ( unless it involves risk) and has managed to reduce her anxiety a lot by giving her emotional support as and when she needs it as well as taught her simple skills to cope with when she feels low or anxious .
We still go to her as and when required and I thank her from the bottom of my heart to be so empathetic always .
Thank u . 😊🙏🏻
( One more thing: she is almost always available on watsapp for emergencies or for a small query which personally for me is a very big factor as it may not always be possible to see someone at a particular time , specailly when u r travelling) .
