I believe Therapy is a collaborative process- a mutual exploration of your self. And the most important thing for any patient to recover is to FEEL SAFE with the therapist. The critical question you is this : Do you feel that your therapist is curious to find out who you are and what you, not some generic "diagnosed patient", need ? Are you just a list of symptoms on some diagnostic questionnaire, or does your therapist take the time to find out why you do what you do and think what you think ?
And exactly this was the best part of my experience with Dr. Shwetank Bansal.
First, he actively "listened". He didn't judge me. He did not invalidate my feelings, emotions and actions. He made me feel safe. He become someone I could share my heart out (which is really important for someone dealing with uncomfortable emotions--(depression/anxiety are just diagnosis). The basic human needs are to be seen, to be heard. Most emotional issues comes when these needs are not met. So, he gave me this safe space where I was seen and heard objectively without any judgements. I opened up to many things in my present and past that I thought could have been causing all the troubles I was having. Then, he made sure we always communicate rather than just me speaking or him imposing some remedies. He did gave some practical tips. Always. Medicine was his last resort which I always appreciated. After giving some invaluable tips he ended with keeping them same or altering my medicines. To be honest, medicines did work for me but only for sometime. I think it can be a part of the process but medicines can never "cure" such conditions. And when after sometime, I always found myself back to the deep hole over and over again. I gave up. I started to look for another doctor. In the process, I was not taking responsibility to try what Dr. Shwetank had suggested and was rigid in staying in my comfort zone. I don't go hard on myself either. It's not easy. I know where I had been. It was darkness. I am writing this after 1 long year of giving up on the doctor, consulting a couple of doctors, and then eventually tapering off the last prescribed medicines myself and went the holistic way. I wouldn't recommend anyone to do this on their own. I took a risk. And, it has been paying off. I don't miss the medicines at all. In fact, I am better off without them. But I do miss someone like Dr. Shwetank. Just to talk. Just to have someone who "listens". I would say he really helped me a lot figure out myself. I think deep down he believes in the healing power that everyone has in their own hands and that he can be a guide, a friend, a helping hand who can show someone that. I wish I'd have given him the chance to complete my recovery. But this is to tell you, you are amazing Dr. Shwetank. Thank you for being there when I needed you the most. Thank you for being a mentor. This is also to tell you that I am much better. I have started to befriend the uncomfortable emotions. I sit with my feelings. I don't push them away. I have realized the fact that suffering and pain are inevitable. They are part of the deal we made when we signed up for a human experience. And that it's not about what happens to you but how you choose to respond. I don't let uncomfortable emotions to derail me anymore. Thank you again!
P.S. I recommend you and everyone reading "The Body Keeps The Score" by Bessel Van Der Kolk. It's a must read for all professionals I believe. And I am sure someone like you will definitely appreciate the read.
Thank you again. Sending you lots of love. Stay safe Doc :)

Satisfied with the treatment provided by Dr Bansal.
Very friendly behavior & his explanation of the ailment is really appreciable.
**** ****** *** explains well and got satisfaction with his medication and hope will be fully treated
This was my first session with the doctor and all I can say is that I look forward to the treatment to begin. Dr. Bansal heard me out without judging me. I wasn't sure if he would prescribe medicines or therapy and when he said he prefered therapy over medicines, I knew there is light for me at the end of the tunnel. The best was, when, unlike other doctors, he did not impose his decision on me and allowed me to think through the process of treatment. Like I said I can't wait for the healing process to begin.
I had a wonderful experience with doctor. He always guides in a confident way that makes the patient truely satisfied.
It's been just 2 days since I visited first.its very short span to judge BT still what m experincing in last 2 days I found important to share.
Wen I went to doctor I was so confused about what to tell from where to start.unorganised thoughts were rushing up.prior to visiting him i was expering such attacks of negative thoughts from long time.I was just putting information randomly in words but doctor could guage my condition.He asked me some to the point questions and some questionnaires (2 to b precise).He prescribed me medicine about which I was hesitant BT he explained me scinetificaly which changed my opinion.from 2 days m taking medicine n following his instructions.In 2 days m feeling better but 5 more days to go.Hope so it will work.In Next visit may b more areas will b highlighed.As of now m very satisfied n happy n feeling much better.
