I never considered myself to be one to need to go counselling and never saw it as something that would help me release my emotions, especially being a university student. I wasn't feeling like myself for a few months and could not get out how I felt as well as feeling anxious and insecure. I decided to get counselling for the first time and contacted Kanta. Through weeks of speaking to her, I managed to share my emotions and was able to understand why I felt how I did. She is very easy to talk to and very understanding too of situations. I am now able to think positively and wanting to seek my own happiness. Thank you so much Kanta for helping me out, I don't know where I would've been without your help. I really encourage young people to seek the help they need because trying to shadow your emotions will send you in a downward spiral.
I started seeing Kanta around 5 weeks ago and my issues were related to a lot of anger via people pleasing and codependency. In just a few sessions I have noticed myself connecting with my core feelings and questioning the emotions I feel and why they are there. This has helped with calming down when I feel emotions getting stirred. I find that Kanta is a very good listener, empathetic and thoughtful. She has good techniques and ways which I have started applying and are helping me change the way I think which then impacts on the way I feel and react. Thank you so much.
I was really pleased to find you nearby and knew straightaway that you were someone I'd be able to talk to honestly and openly. And I found our sessions really helpful in understanding the stressful situation I was in and resolving it in a way which was actually quite simple but was still something I hadn't been able to realise on my own. The few sessions we had together (and it really wasn't a long or drawn out process) were cathartic; I managed to get things off my chest which had been building quietly for months without release. And with minimal skilled prompts and questions you showed me how much of this stress it was possible for me to tackle, or manage, or resolve without telling me what to do or putting ideas in my head. I'm very grateful for your support and impressed by your approach, which was both kind and firm; I never felt I was taken in directions I didn't want to go, nor was I 'analysed' but I was supported and guided to my own decisions and a more positive future direction.
My sessions with Kanta have been really helpful. Talking through the emotions and feelings helped to develop clarity in my thoughts, which in turn helped me develop my action points in finding a way to move forward, including building emotional strength.
After a very near suicide attempt, I decided that I didn't want social anxiety and self esteem issues to ruin my life and so I sought out a counsellor. Kanta has a very warm, interactive approach to her one-on-one sessions and made me feel at ease when expressing some very painful moments in my life; some of which I had trouble acknowledging on my own and to counsellors I'd seen in the past. Kanta not only helps guide you through pivotal moments in your life but reinforces alternative and better ways of looking back on them so you can simply accept and move on. At one point during our sessions, I thought that I was 'broken' and 'hopeless' but after holding myself together and meeting Kanta halfway with her challenges, I am now reclaiming my confidence, piece by piece. The most effective counsellor I've been to, period.
How liberating to get rid of so much anger. Thank you Kanta for your guidance, wisdom and love.
I never feel guilty when I am with you. You have shown me the way to appreciate ME and in the process make the others appreciate ME too. Thank you
After considering whether or not to take the step into therapy. I can genuinely say it has been a life changing experience. I don't think people understand how stressful it is to explain what is going on in our minds. During my time in therapy, I felt that Kanta's approach to understanding was encouraging. Not only was she supportive, she made me realise the recognition of some matters I was dealing with for a long time. Though it was not always easy, it has been a very positive experience. Thank you Kanta
I started suffering from anxiety last year, it hit me out of no where. Every thing was in place, but I was feeling physically very ill. My days were horrible, my life stopped. I was having panic attacks every day and went to my GP every other day and the same response "you are absolutely fine". I knew that something was wrong with me so I decided to start therapy.
I looked for a good counsellor and I came across Kanta. After the first session I started to feel better and I knew I wasn't alone in this, finally someone who understood what I was going through. After more sessions I was getting there, started to feel good and happy again. Kanta helped me a lot, she is a very good listener. So if anyone suffers from anxiety, don't wait, seek help, you are not alone. With a good Counsellor you can get your life back before anxiety much easier. Thank you Kanta!!!
I would like to thank Kanta, in helping me cope with many years of negative childhood and health issues.
I felt free to open up and express many of the tensions in my life and now realise that I can cope and be on top of things from my past and also worked on techniques to manage and resolve the immense negativity that I had stored up. Kanta helped me see things in a new light and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a change in life.

I was in a bad relationship for 6 years and was in a traumatic state where my confidence was shattered into little pieces and I was feeling very low and depressed in my self.
So I decided to seek help and searched for a counsellor close by and came across Kanta's profile and emailed her. I was nervous when meeting Kanta for the first time but went with an open mind.
However, when I met Kanta, she made me feel at ease as I could open up to her and tell her everything that had happened to me. I could converse to her in English and in Gujarati when explaining things.
Kanta was very patient, so understanding, honest and never judged and understood the issues I had. Through out the sessions she was able to relate to me and give me advice on what to do and helped me develop my self with different techniques.
I would like to thank you in helping me get back to normality with life as I can deal with anything in life.
