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 ?
Dr Bansal makes one feel comfortable. He explains his point very logically in a crisp to the point manner. His medication has had a significant improvement in my internal stress level in just 10 days
