Reaching out to Prachi was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my mental health. I wasn’t sure if therapy would help me, but Prachi’s approach to it is so reassuring and refreshing. The insights she gave me for my problems cleared the path for me to heal in the most healthy and wholesome manner. I can honestly say that some of the coping skills that I learnt from her have managed to stick even months after my last therapy session, and will probably stick around for life. Talking to someone as genuinely kind as her is all you need to step out from under the shadow of your thoughts and experience the sunshine. I would close my eyes and recommend Prachi to even my closest friends and family (I actually have and they love her, too).
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.
Speaking to Prachi was like talking to the mirror. She opens up the mind and removes the conflict in our mind the way we untangle earphones ( No one likes to mess with a tangled earphones , Just like Conflicts in our mind) , but the joy you get once its done is pure bliss 😊
Do yourself a favour and consult her if you too want to untangle your wires
I had a very good experience with Prachi.
She is an amazing psychologist. She understood my problems and advised various activities which boosted my motivation and attention to a great extent. Not only this, her way of dealing with issues is worth appreciating but also she brought out one talent which i never knew was within me. With her advise i started devoting my time in creating Zentangle Art and to my surprise i am doing it so well. I am getting appreciation from people around me and that indeed helps me elevate my confidence to next level.
Dr. Prachi is very humble.She listened everything with patience. I was very depressed and I am also suffering from anxiety. She gives me hope and courage to deal with the situations of my life. She is the life saver. Thanku dr. Prachi.
So, I have been seeing Prachi Rathi mam for a little more than 3 months now. I had never done counseling before this. I was motivated to change my life for the better. She has helped me with depression. Helped me get out of gaming and youtube addiction. Taught me how to have conversations(I had trouble talking with women especially). Suggested 2 great books that are helping a lot in self-development. Helped me resume my work again(Was not working at all for more than a year). Helped with anger management. All in all, it is really a great experience to have someone listen to you so patiently and try to help you with your problems. I am very much thankful to her for changing my life. Thanks a Lot!!
I went to Prachi full of fear and trepidation, but fully knowing I needed help. I fully credit her for helping me completely overhaul areas of my life. She is an incredibly open-minded, understanding, ever smiling and empathetic person who made me feel that I could talk about anything. She really helped me to see things as they actually are, and not as I thought they were. She offered many unique, insightful and penetrating interpretations, which questioned many of my actions and thought processes and turned some of my previous beliefs upside down. I was frequently challenged to consider things from a different angle and acknowledge the influence of my subconscious self. She was extremely candid at times, which I really appreciated, as this was all about openness and honesty and made me realize that things which I took as acceptable, might at times cause stress to those around me. She also helped me air frustrations objectively, when at times, I thought I would hit a brick wall. When I thought I was always right she cleared the perspective and balance, which was the most insightful part of our interactions. Slowly but surely, she helped me navigate a different pathway, and, despite some hurdles along the way, until I felt safe enough to be left in charge of my own life again. I found this as an incredibly cathartic experience and after more than twelve months of therapy, I am in a much better place. I would strongly recommend Prachi and the counselling she provides. Thank you so much, Prachi - you have helped change my life for the better!
I started therapy at mansitherapy with therapist Prachi in Jan. Its truely said "we are our own enemy, we are our own best friend"....i have been my enemy since last 20-25 years.... And the reason was only few beliefs that i held so strongly all these years.....i could not believe that the reason for all the suffering i went through all these years is such a simple thing.... And prachi is the one who guided me to realise that and helped me to to take a step forward from my misery.... I felt after the first 2 sessions that i should discontinue because so many deep hidden issues popped up that i became uncomfortable... But i persisted and prachi gave me a new perspective to look at the problems n helped me deal with it....its very important to continue sessions till the end and give yourself time to understand your real problem, the root of all problems and heal slowly.... And the psychologist too needs time to understand us... So its important that you persist... ..and the best part is she never judged me... Though i felt i lost my mind and i m not a good person.... She treated me like a normal person having some difficulties with life.....and the way she guided me is outstanding..... She is the best person i could have gone to seek help....and i m so grateful to god that he took me to her.... Lastly to all who are reading this and need help ill say.... " you dont have to reincarnate to be born again, you can do it in this life".... I heard it in a movie and now i know that its true... But you have have to take the step for yourself, to take a decision to suffer or put an end to ur suffering... And only you can do it.
I was suffering from anxiety disorder, but within 2 to three sessions taken by me with Prachi Rathi had helped me a lot to be out of this situation and now I can lead a normal life. I would like to recommend to any one who had such problems, taking counselling really changes the way we think , and can heal our mental health. So don’t be shy of taking counselling for your problems, better to solve your problems by taking counselling.
Prachi ma'am is very friendly, she will listen to you and understand you and help you to come out of it. She's very motivating and positive. I would recommend her highly if you are facing anything in your personal/professional life which you cannot talk about. She's always there for her patients. Thank you so much prachi di for helping me out 😊
