A few minutes into my first session with Dr Prachi, I was convinced that she won't be able to help me. There was a reason behind this apprehension. I had visited two clinical psychologists before, both experienced and working with renowned hospitals. However, they had failed miserably in diagnosing my condition, let alone providing any solutions. Within a few sessions, Dr Prachi completely changed my notion that to be a good medical practitioner one should have years and years of experience. I understood that intent and empathy are for more important in treating a mental health issue.
Dr Prachi conducts her sessions in a completely judgment-free environment and never makes the patient feel guilty or uncomfortable for having any thoughts or issues. As a result, I was able to share some of my deepest worries and insecurities without any hesitation. She has immense patience and listens calmly and with undivided attention. Her suggestions are well thought out, practical and invariably worked out in partnership with the patient. This makes the patient to start feeling confident and capable of handling their problems on their own.
She has clear and impressive understanding of the corporate world, exams and education system, family structures, relationships and what not. I never had to give too much background before explaining any problem because she already had the requisite information and hence was able to understand quite easily.
I really admire the professionalism with which she does her work. Sessions always begin on time, the process is well explained and questions are always welcome. She makes sure that each and every term she uses is well understood. I found the sessions educative and really enjoyed learning cool psychological concepts like cognitive distortion. I feel confident that the tools and techniques she has taught me can be used throughout my life.
However, the key to the effectiveness of the sessions lies in her empathy and genuine intent to help the patient. She is easily accessible in case of a need. In one of the sessions, she was even ready to work out a daily schedule for me when I was facing difficulty in preparing the same. Such humility and care for one's patient is rare in this impersonal world.
She has helped me achieve a mental state which years of reading self-help books, watching Ted-talks and listening to motivational speakers could not. Getting in touch with her was undoubtedly one of the best decisions of my life :)
