he is the best person I can suggest for ur psychological needs and motivation for ur betterment and enlightenment
He is very respectful of the patients. He listened to everything i had to say and explained things to me in a calm and understandable way. I am a lot better since i started sessions with him. Now i am on a counselling break and I have recovered enough to handle difficult situations by myself. I see myself recovering day by day. He enabled me to realize that depression is just an illness and i need not be embarrassed about it. I could see that he is dedicated to provide this valuable service to the people in need.
