It was a pleasure going for sessions with Ms. Piya Banerjee. She made me understand my concerns in a very logical and understanding way and addressed all issues in a friendly manner. I felt I was in a safe environment and could easily open up to her. I’d strongly recommend her to anyone facing any issues.
The session was great. We had a chance to talk about a lot of issues and it was well structured down. I am able to resolve a lot of issues from her. The way she goes about the issues is absolutely great and they are eye opening.
She is very patient in listening to all my problems and guiding me to a solution. She gives attention to the minute details and has this positive vibe in her which helps one in opening up to her.
Piya is a very kind and empathetic Therapist.. I like talking to her and look forward to her sessions. She guides me well and she is very professional...
I have never gone for counselling before, but was dealing with severe anxiety and depression this year and wasn't able to figure out exactly why I was feeling so bad. I found Piya on practo and decided to try going. She was able to schedule an appointment with me right away, which I think is really essential when people are in a bad situation. After our first session, I was so happy I had found her. Every session is interactive, and though I might have been looking for someone to tell me what the right decision would be for certain questions in my life, she helped me realize that's not really what therapy is. It's about working with someone (and it's work and doesn't just happen overnight!!!) to get to a place where you yourself can have the strength to make your own choices in life and feel like you can trust them whatever the result, and learn from them. She's really helping me see some things I didn't realize before , and helping me equip myself with the emotional and communication tools to be open to the experiences I want to be open to. I would recommend seeing her if you know you are ready to feel differently and make a change but don't know of what to do. She will give you homework, but I like it! The work gives me something tangible and real to track my progress with and makes me feel like I'm doing something. It's true that when changing - a lot of that work has to be done yourself- but Piya is a great guiding voice of support and encouragement during this challenging process. Her openness to feedback and flexibility with different approaches made me feel like I would be totally comfortable talking with her about what's working or not working in the future, and that freedom of communication is really refreshing and I think, unique to her. Again, despite still working through my own worries and insecurities, I'm back to being more of my cheerful self, feeling hopeful, and honestly, feeling very excited to keep working on growing as a person both with her and when I am on my own. I have Piya to thank for all of this.
I always thought for years that I was fired from my job. But after discussing the matter with the doctor, I was enlightened that I had actually resigned voluntarily and wilfully. It made a huge impact on my approach towards life. I could accept my present circumstances. I was not regretful and was open to what the future may bring. 🌻
Piya was referred to me by a friend and it was the best decision of my life to have a session with her. She was the voice of reason which was something I needed at that time. She really helped me in getting clarity of thought. I saw a change in me with just two sessions and I'm highly grateful to piya for this.
I have found a friend in Piya. I could discuss everything with her whichbi could not discuss with anyone else. Her way of therapy and her excellent communication skill which is most important in a psychological counselling is beyond comparison. While I would have been a divorced lady by now, she has made me a part of a happy family. The confidence that I found in herbholds no boundaries. I wish her all the bigger success and I am ever grateful to her for fixing my marriage.
She Brings you to a comfort level so dt u can confide anything and everthing.
After the 2nd session i ws alrdy feelng better recovering and improvising. By the fourth session i already had a better insight to everythn i ws going thru and how i could it deal wid it. i saw the change widin me and so did others.
She is very cooperating,understanding and treats u like a friend and not a patient. Thats d difference btwn any other psychiatrist and her. Very positive and always smiling which makes me feel good and smile to. Following her suggestions has realy worked. I feel as if a burden has been lifted up from my soul and i feel much lighter and free. I am much better and happy widin myself.
Definately recommend everyone who is facing their demons and dark syd and wants to come to light.. she surely helps u the best way possible never compelling. She steps in ur shoes and understands the depth of ur problem.. helps and motivates you to work on urslf in a very positive way. Always at her best. The space here is very less to express how grateful i am to u.. Thankyou for ur help and contribution in finding myslf and overcoming every obstacle widin myslf. Keep up the good work !!☺
She was very open to hear me out. I am not good at expressing myself and very uncomfortable sharing my feelings unless someone is very close; yet she did her best to get me talking and we did talk about quite a few things which were bothering me. This was the first meeting and it gave me a sense of comfort . She has suggested certain ways to reduce the stress I have been going through and also handed out a simple assignment before we meet again in a week time. Hopefully the suggestions and future sessions help to zero down on all the problems, help overcome them and restore my positivity and enthusiasm.
