I want to start with a sentence 'Dr. Shyam is an outstanding therapist.'
I started visiting him since February along with my husband. I was going through stress, anxiety and also our marital life was taking a toll. So my husband also decided to see him.
Dr. Shyam ensured, he spoke to us together as well us separately to understand our areas where we were struggling.
He has been very approachable and is a good listener. He is not someone who will just give an advice on mental health or some medicines and let you go. He will try to understand where you are coming from, hear you out. And also constantly encourages to practice different concepts and ideas to live a better life and not just depend on medicines.
Especially in a time like COVID, when the world has changed for all of us, my husband and I felt extremely lucky that we consulted him during this period. We had multiple episodes of arguments and fights in the past due to reasons like work pressure and also being 2 different personalities. But during this lockdown, we did not fight. We did have disagreements but we realised under Dr. Shyam's guidance we were being open to understand each other's situation and made peace with each other. It's such a big change in us.
I have also been facing huge amount of stress and anxiety, which links back to my childhood and I figured out I have been going through depression after we met him.
Dr. Shyam has given me minimal doses and has encouraged me to pick up a healthy lifestyle, like meditation, affirmations, practicing gratitude and told me nothing comes before our mental peace. Such a powerful message! It's been 4 months, and I am doing so much better now. There's a sense of calmness in me. I do not wake up in the morning with heaviness.
He has really been a wonderful guide to help me and my husband get out of the stress and anxiety we were both going through.
We both have been very open to our friends and social circle in saying - yes we are seeing a therapist, and why shouldn't we? It's one life and we all have the right to live it superbly! We don't have to be answerable to anyone to nurture our mental health.
I totally urge people to come forward if you feel there's something you are grappling with and your mental peace is being threatened.. Don't compromise on your mental health, especially when we have such a skilled and wonderful therapist in Mumbai, the right person to go to Dr. Shyam Mithiya. Thank you so much, Doctor. :)
