Visited For Anxiety Disorder Counselling
I had been suffering from depression for over 2 years before I met Ms. Cassandra . I had a nervous breakdown which prompted me to seek a therapist. I was in therapy for little over a year and it is har I had been suffering from depression for over 2 years before I met Ms. Cassandra . I had a nervous breakdown which prompted me to seek a therapist. I was in therapy for little over a year and it is hard to describe the experience in this short review , so instead I have listed out the reasons I think Ms. Cassandra is a great therapist:

1. The relationship : Ms. Cassandra worked to inculcate trust and openness in our patient-therapist. When you have anxiety you are always afraid that people evaluating you and judging you, and that makes you closed up and reticent and afraid to share. So when Ms. Cassandra told me that I won't be judged and that she won't evaluate my actions as good or bad, it meant a lot to me and made me open up to her. She also has a lot of patience, she never pushed me to share, but let me open up at a pace I was comfortable with.

2. A map, not a textbook : As we explored my psyche, Ms. Cassandra never outright diagnosed my mental afflictions. Instead she gently guided me and helped me come to my own conclusions about what was making me behave or think the way I did. In this way I came to have a greater understanding of myself.

3. Teach a man how to fish : The most effective part of my therapy was that Ms. Cassandra did not merely analyze and counsel me, but also taught me how to analyze and counsel myself. Depression and anxiety aren't things that can be "cured". They are like chronic afflictions. You can subdue them for long periods of time, but then they will suddenly tear through your mind without warning, destroying all the progress you made before. Being able to analyze and counsel myself, the ability to find out what was effecting me and how to fix it has saved my life many times.

4. Acceptance and Happiness : Ms. Cassandra always stressed on acceptance. Many times in life we end up in a situation where we are not happy and there is no way out. This can be taking a job you don't like or studying for a degree you don't want because you have to. And in such cases, even though we haven't got what we wanted, we should refuse to be miserable. We should accept it, not as a good situation or a bad situation but just as it is. By accepting I do not mean that we don't try to change our situation, just that we refuse to let it cloud our life. Because once we accept where we are and refuse to be miserable , our mind becomes free - free to solve our problem, free to explore the other parts of our life and free to be happy. And this was the most important thing that I learned in my year in therapy.

I was going through misery in life since my wife and I were not in good terms. We fought everyday and as much as we thought we can handle it ourselves it never became better. Finally a friend suggested I was going through misery in life since my wife and I were not in good terms. We fought everyday and as much as we thought we can handle it ourselves it never became better. Finally a friend suggested that we take psychological help. After the initial hesitation and further search for a reliable professional psychologist, we met Ms. Cassandra at Mind Vidya and we went through couple therapy. Today we are happier and working on our relationship everyday. We are confident that we will discover our old days and its fun once again. more..
