I had never taken therapy before and was apprehensive towards the beginning. Ma’am made me feel extremely comfortable and gave me time to share whatever I had to. She listened patiently and that helped me open up without any hesitation. Her sessions helped me discover my issues and also provided me a direction. The best part about my experience was that i could express myself without the fear of being judged and I felt no pressure/rush to share or speak up. I can work on myself at my own pace and as and when I feel I am ready. In case you want to seek help and are confused whom to reach out to, I would definitely recommend Piya Ma’am.
Ms. Piya is a very patient listener & you can go at length speaking about the issues. I like the way she makes us feel comfortable so that we do not shy away from sharing our problems.
I have never gone for counselling before, but was dealing with severe anxiety and depression this year and wasn't able to figure out exactly why I was feeling so bad. I found Piya on practo and decided to try going. She was able to schedule an appointment with me right away, which I think is really essential when people are in a bad situation. After our first session, I was so happy I had found her. Every session is interactive, and though I might have been looking for someone to tell me what the right decision would be for certain questions in my life, she helped me realize that's not really what therapy is. It's about working with someone (and it's work and doesn't just happen overnight!!!) to get to a place where you yourself can have the strength to make your own choices in life and feel like you can trust them whatever the result, and learn from them. She's really helping me see some things I didn't realize before , and helping me equip myself with the emotional and communication tools to be open to the experiences I want to be open to. I would recommend seeing her if you know you are ready to feel differently and make a change but don't know of what to do. She will give you homework, but I like it! The work gives me something tangible and real to track my progress with and makes me feel like I'm doing something. It's true that when changing - a lot of that work has to be done yourself- but Piya is a great guiding voice of support and encouragement during this challenging process. Her openness to feedback and flexibility with different approaches made me feel like I would be totally comfortable talking with her about what's working or not working in the future, and that freedom of communication is really refreshing and I think, unique to her. Again, despite still working through my own worries and insecurities, I'm back to being more of my cheerful self, feeling hopeful, and honestly, feeling very excited to keep working on growing as a person both with her and when I am on my own. I have Piya to thank for all of this.
Going to visit Ms. Piya Banerjee has been a very good experience for me. I was going through a tough time when I first visited her and she gave me her honest advice about few things, which had helped me. I would certainly recommend Piya ma'am if anyone is going through a psychological/life issue to help and guide them.
