I had a counselling session with Mr. Karthik about an important decision I had to take regarding my career. This decision was giving me anxiety and sleeplessness as I was considering stepping out of my comfort zone and taking a risk that could easily affect me negatively. He helped me analyze and understand my feelings. Eventually I was guided to making a rational decision which I think is the right call for me. I fully recommend Mr. Karthik for his listening abilities, quick and astute diagnosis, and a very non judgmental and kind attitude.
Karthik sir was very approachable and made me feel at ease instantly to share my personal issues. He was empathetic in listening to me and understanding my issue. His guidance helped me to understand and decode my own emotions in a particular situation. After the counselling session, I felt more empowered to solve my own issues. I would totally recommend Karthik sir for anyone dealing with everyday issues such as anxiety or depression or general problem solving as well.
Dr. Karthik Lakshmanan was extremely professional and patient throughout the whole session. He is clearly a well experienced person and he is solution driven which I personally found to be of great help. I could feel much better instantly right after the first session. Thank you Dr.
He was very understanding of what I was going through and was able to provide guidance on how to help the situation I was in. After, the session, I felt like a positive step was taken towards my mental health. The solutions he provides are easy to understand and effective. I felt empowered to solve what I was going through. I wholeheartedly recommend Karthik sir for anyone dealing with depression, anxiety.
