In late 2019, early 2020, I was going through a difficult phase in my personal life which was taking a toll on my mental health and subsequently physical health as well. Times such as these come in everyone's lives which need to be seriously addressed and not lightly ignored due to social pressures or any stigma attached to mental health issues.
I happened to meet Ms. Prachi Rathi during my visit to Kolkata last year. I didnt know much about her but simply trusted her credentials and wanted to seek advice. During the first appointment, I was quite impressed with her professionalism and the comforting manner in which i was heard patiently. The main issue arising was regarding subsequent sessions as my work is at sea. Even then, she assured me in flexibility of sessions whenever it would be possible. With being in different time zones, monthly 1-2 half hour online sessions were planned keeping in mind my work constraints, internet availability as well as her schedule. With her , one can be rest assured that she would genuinely give in her best towards all aspects of counselling.
Over the sessions which were planned, i was heard patiently and then given suggested ways of proceeding further. Few ways were journaling, getting busy with my passions in free time, trying to balance my approach, being grateful, practising forgiveness and much more. Review sessions were then held to know my progress. These really helped to calm and lower anxiety levels. I did find my concentration levels increased with reduced irritability.
I took the sessions purely to help me find my balance after the events which had occured in preceeding year. I am a much happier person now with a slightly slowed pace. Life is there to be enjoyed and I hope many reading this take mental health issues seriously and not shy away due to the sheer misconceptions attached.
Ms. Prachi Rathi, whos based in Kolkata and heads Lets Smile, is a very capable professional who can be genuinely trusted for counselling. I would be allways grateful that I met her.
