    My partner and I were soon to be married when we decided to go for therapy. Our friends thought we were having problems and should call off the wedding. But taking pre-marital therapy made us realize how important it was to talk about various aspects of our lives that will come together. I recommend Sumithra to anyone who wants to have a nurturing relationship with their partner.

    I was so close to giving up on my relationship. We always fought and stopped understanding each other. There were more arguments than conversations. On our friend’s suggestion, we booked a session with Heart It Out. Three months later, we are not only able to have deep, meaningful conversations but we have also reconnected like the way we were before all the fights started. We love and understand each other. Our experience has been magical working with Sumithra.

    Sumithra was really kind with all the issues we had at the start. She was patient with us and supported us in any way she could throughout the process. It was so eye-opening to have a third-person perspective on our relationship, especially when that person is a professional. She is really kind and wise at the same time. I am so glad we opted for therapy with her at Heart It Out.
