I’ve been seeing Sumithra S from Heart it Out for a few months now and despite my trust issues, she has made the sharing space very very comfortable, always respecting my boundaries and suggesting (and not enforcing) exercises that has really helped. It really makes a difference when one is at their poorest mental health to get help from genuinely warm and compassionate professionals. Discounts for students has been an extra consideration and in small things like this, they have really helped destigmatise reaching out for help.
I am consulting Sumitra for couple therapy. Therapy is still going on but I personally am at a much better place because of her. She provided me with safe space to talk about some of the most difficult things without feeling judged. I have consulted few other counselors but found only two of them to be the best. Sumitra is one of them. It is extremely important that we feel safe to share our deepest/darkest stories with a counselor. Sumitra is a compassionate, empathetic confidant. Totally recommend her. More power to her.
I was truly sceptical about therapy until I met S. Sumitra and I have been working with her for about 4 months now and I am truly happy that I have someone like her, who is super supportive and understanding to help me in my journey!
