I recommend the doctor
Happy with: Doctor friendliness
Ruchika is very friendly and easy to speak to. I always felt accepted and comfortable in therapy and left the centre feeling more confident.
She hears you out with amazing patience-even the irrelevant details about your life(which no one could care less about) and sometimes that is all you need, really! For someone you hear you out without passing any judgement.
She is super compassionate(will step out of her comfort zone to help you and try to look out for you- for instance you can email her or if the situation is VV bad, call/text her. I never used this privilege coz I respect her privacy and honesty, never felt the need to! But I appreciate her concern towards her patients)and I always felt like I could rely on her(this gave me immense security and confidence to do the things I was afraid of)
She gave me worksheets(which were useful) and helped me think more objectively and rationally about my issues.
Special mention for Ruchika's intern Sadhna- she was super sweet, friendly and helpful(tried her best to make me feel better), the grumpy cat Guna(I will miss bullying him), the didis and interns at the reception- they were all very sweet and made me feel comfortable.
I wish Ruchika can help and heal as many people as possible. It takes great courage and immense compassion to do what she is doing. I am forever grateful!
Caveat for people who are new to therapy: your progress depends upon yourself. Therapists are there to help and monitor your progress, but won't magically heal you- healing requires hard work from your side as well. So don't be to quick to judge your therapist. Incase, you feel uneasy/unsure/dissatisfied about something you can discuss it with your therapist- I can vouch for Ruchika(she will listen to your concern with an open mind)
