Happy withDoctor friendliness, Treatment satisfaction, Value for money
I practically owe my life to Aarathi is by no means an exaggeration.
I clearly remember the only reason I even reached out to her in the first place was only because I did not know how to deal with myself and I just needed to know how to survive. I had lost all in interest in life.
I saw her first in Feb'16 and had my own doubts if she could help me in anyway. Nevertheless, I tried. And my first session with her was not great -- primarily because I, in those 75 minutes with her, did not tell her what the real issue was or why I was in her clinic.
I did not see her again for the next 3 months. The second time I scheduled a session with her was when I decided to tell her everything and ask for help and she HELPED. She treats me as a person and not as a patient.
Aarathi is extremely efficient, compassionate and gives her 100% attention even if it is the last session of the day. Despite seeing so many others, the fact that she remembers important names and incidents goes on to show that she cares.
Her clinic is one of the safest places where you can be assured of confidentiality. I always felt safe speaking my mind without the fear of being judged.
The best part of my sessions with Aarathi is that she does not impose her suggestions on me. Although a lot of times I'd disagree with her suggestions/advice during the sessions, I'd eventually come to realize her suggestions were the right thing to do.
The place I am at today, was unimaginable for me when I started seeing her.
The best decision I ever made was seeing Aarathi and she will remain an integral part of my story.
I still continue to see her as the battle is only half won and I definitely recommend Aarathi to anyone who, even remotely, in their mind know they need help but do not know whom to approach.
Note: For first timers to therapy, Aarathi (or for that matter,any therapist) is not a magician and she does not have a wand - which when waved, solves all your problems. Therapy usually takes time to show results and I suggest you give yourself and the therapist that kind of time before writing them off.
