Visited For Anxiety And DepressionAnxiety And Depression
I recommend the doctor
Almost two months back I started seeing Diya for various emotional and anxiety related issues-she discourages labelling, so I am going to refrain from using any official names/labels here.
In a short span of time, I've seen a marked improvement in my mental health and general well-being and the therapy sessions with her have proven to be incredibly helpful. She's been more like an 'anchor' to my ship, in very difficult times. My diagnosis is a little complicated and highly stigmatized - people and sometimes even, practitioners are not very well equipped to diagnose them correctly, let alone handle them. She's done a great job at hitting the nail on the head and working on my issues with me.
Of course, any mental health issue requires a lot of work and more importantly, commitment from both sides. I found her on practo after a lot of research and her qualifications aside- what really distinguishes her from the other practitioners in her field is that she's extremely patient, dedicated, understanding and most importantly, mature.
I distinctly remember my first conversation with her, when she told me: "I can't promise you that I can 'cure' your issues, but if you're willing to work towards this, I can help you manage it better- you will definitely lead a better life than this." All I can say is that I'm more than two months into therapy and I already see the difference in the quality of my life!
Often, we ignore mental health issues and dismiss them - but if you recognize that you're facing some issues, please reach out. If you see a loved one experiencing difficulties in coping or managing certain things in life, please help out. Self-educate. Spread the awareness. Please do not ignore any warning signs.
