Regarding my counselling session with her she is very friendly. Uptill now I've had 3 sessions with her. If u want genuine opinion you have to be frank about yourself to her, for her to understand your situation better. I've learnt to be patient with situations to get good results.
I consulted Dr. Vijal in the last week of May after struggling with anxiety and depression for a long time. After the first session of just collecting information about me, she began the intervention and to my absolute surprise she found out some very deep rooted issues that I was neither thinking about nor thought them to be related to the problems I was facing. My initial reaction was denial but I pushed myself to honestly accept them and work on resolving them. She then guided me through, step by step, one issue at a time and helped me reach a point where I could objectively look at myself, identify the causes of my problems that basically were just thoughts that had buried their roots into my personality causing a multitude of triggers resulting in stress and anxiety. As soon as I worked on those couple of points, I regained control over my thought process and in a matter of four weeks, I started to feel optimistic, relaxed and confident. She helped me regain trust in myself and greatly helped me understand my parents while at the same time gave me the will and confidence to stand up for myself where necessary without guilt or emotional pressure which in a way saved my relationship with them. I am very glad I reached out to her. She is very pleasant with a very transparent and effective approach that is a perfect mix of friendly to make you feel comfortable to open up yet firm to make you work on yourself without any lag.
I ONLY WANT TO MEET TO MY STRESS ISSUES
AND I WANT TO SHARED MY ALL PROBLEM I THINK I AM NOT WELL .
I think she is a good listener and specifically responds to each concern mentioned during the sessions.
I took Vijal's help to deal with anger and anxiety issues. She helped me understand the root cause of my problems and recommended a lot of practices to overcome them. 4 months of therapy really helped me respond to stressful situations and deal with my problems in a much better manner.
Very patient. Felt very comfortable talking to her. Could openly tell my problems. Very understanding.
Certain experiences are difficult to put in words. I'm coming from a place where I was prescribed antidepressants by two doctors and was told that I really need them and will deteriorate without them. I wasn't gonna give in without a fight that's when turned to practo and found Vijal. Her words stirred something in me right from the first session. She gives a safe and non judgmental space to open up. Her responses are straightforward but clear, the kind of clarity my foggy mind needed the most. And most essentially she starts giving you tools that empower you right from the beginning, and that's why I came to her in first place. She has a sharp judgement of what will overwhelm you instead of empowering, and give you only what you can conquer during that stage. Taking one step a time, she'll guide you through your journey. Don't expect an overnight miracle bcoz that's not how therapy works, be prepared to put in your effort, there will be pain before you see light, there will be days when nothing seems to help you in your misery but if you persist the outcome is equally sweet and liberating. For me, Vijal was universe sent, I'll be always grateful for her guidance and methods. She helped me find my will and power 🙏 Can't recommend her enough.
This session me gains better understanding about my situation and act accordingly. The Therapist made me feel comfortable and ensured that all my concerns are addressed.
Dr. Vijal has always helped me overcome my fears and issues. She creates a friendly, non-judgmental space to open up and is very patient.
Can't recommend her enough! 🙂
Vijal has been very kind in understanding patiently my concerns & giving solutions that can be practically implemented. She adjusts her schedule to accommodate as per my convenience whenever I felt overwhelmed & stressed. She does a good job in analysis of the root cause of the problem, identifying patterns,explaining - making me understand my way & my reasoning abilities, which makes it easier for me to implement it. She gives practical examples supported by science to achieve all round development.
