She was very helpful and supportive with my health issue.
And she went beyond her scope as a counsellor to ensure that I get help in best possible way.
And apart from that, she is great at her job.
She is genuinely friendly and cares for her patient. She listens and doesn't interrupt and gives great examples and data for her advice.
My experience with Vartika was extremely fulfilling. I was apprehensive about therapy because speaking to a stranger about my problems did not seem appealing to me. However, Vartika gave me the free space that I desperately needed. She created such a warm and comfortable environment that I didn't feel judged for a moment. She gives you her undivided attention and actively listens to every word you say. She is very perceptive and patient. She gives you the time to process your thoughts and for you to make sense of them. She provides this unconditional support and as a client, I knew I could count on her. She helped me understand my issues and how they were affecting my actions everyday. She made me understand that even though I was coping with my issues satisfactorily, there was still room for me to grow further. At the same time, she made me understand where my coping style was falling short and what I could alternatively do. I felt like she really valued me and my time, and helped me make the most of it during our session. Needless to say, Vartika is a talented therapist, who really knows what she is doing in a session. I would recommend to everyone her a 100%.
From the outset, my experience with Vartika has been satisfying. This is the first time I sought therapy and embarked on a journey of self awareness and overcoming depression, and there are countless ways in which Vartika has facilitated and supported me in this journey. First and foremost, I was made aware of the clinical symptoms and made to develop an in-depth understanding of how depression hijacks the cognitive system. This helped me immensely in viewing my mental condition 'without judgement' as one would for any unconcealed physical injury, like a fractured bone. Post this understanding, my therapist provided me with adequate tools to combat the state. We sat together and identified my cognitive distortions and worked on them one-by-one together. It's crucial to mention here that I was also made to understand the significance of patience in this journey and constantly made to believe that I can better my life. She promotes 'thriving' instead of merely coping. What readers/mental health warriors can find useful here is that my therapist leaves ample room for flexibility in topics of discussions, is empathetic, does a good job at understanding and interpreting my verbal outpourings. What personally works best for me, perhaps because I am a scientist myself, is that she incorporates into our discussions, the current research topics and technical terms from psychology(with adequate explanations) which relevantly apply to the thoughts/situations I mention. This not only helps me assess that she interpreted me correctly, but also helps me associate the thought/incident to a specific topic which in turn facilitates me to gain additional knowledge and understanding on it, on my own. I truly feel the freedom to bring anything on the table and we then try relevant tools/techniques to come to a viable solution. This is a fairly long review and I have consciously chosen to dive deep instead of giving simplistic qualifiers like 'good communication skills', which obviously still apply. So anyone in need of help can definitely get in touch with Vartika.
Vartika is supportive and open minded. She is also easy to talk to. She gives clear explanations and give you time to contemplate. She throughout shows willingness to guide you through your problem. I highly recommend her.
Ms. Vartika has been very comforting and understanding. I am going to continue taking therapy sessions with her because I can see changes in a few sessions itself. She moulds the therapy session according to the patient's needs and that has been very helpful for me. It has also been very easy for me to open up with her. She has some great activities and tools to make you understand the issue and go forward with it in a systematic manner and a flow which makes sense.
I am genuinely excited and looking forward to my therapy sessions now.
She is an excellent listener and she has made me feel very comfortable through out the process. Would highly recommend her.
She's one of the warmest people I have ever met. She was very good at understanding the root cause of my issues and allowed me to see things from a different perspective. Talking with her was as comfortable as it would be with a friend. I would genuinely recommend her.
In 2019, I had a panic attack. Even aftwards, I was convinced that I have some health issue but I didn't quite know what. I had myself lungs, heart, LFT, KFT, and what not tested. I even got an MRI done. I couldn't figure it out. Then my physician pointed at the possibility of anxiety. I consulted Vartika for anxiety.
She was very quick to identify the root cause of my anxiety. We did CBT and I saw remarkable changes in my perception of "threat", physical or emotional. It helped both my relationships and performance. This was the first time I got therapy. I didn't know what to expect but I am very happy with what I received. I got a safe space where my own thoughts got less scary. Vartika is an enabler, who creates this space for you and eventually helps you create this space for yourself. I highly recommend her.
Extremely friendly. Explained very effectively. Will surely recommend and will go back. Felt better.
