I am grateful to get professional help from Dr. Dharav shah, to heal personal problems. His unique style of therapy helped me to deal with my divorce and heal trauma and be a better human being in the process. I feel its good to take professional help to understand and sort out our mental health issues, instead of living in denial and suffering.
Dr Jyoti Puthron (DNB Internal Medicine)
I am a physician myself and I have been taking therapy from Dr. Dharav Shah. It has tremendously changed the way I have been handling relationships and I am today deeply healed because of the time and efforts he invested in me especially in times when I had given up the hope and will to continue the therapy. It required a lot of hard work including being absolutely honest about yourself, being open to seeing and believing in the therapist and his suggestions especially when you have been holding an exactly opposite view of the issues for several years, internalising and practically applying all that you have internalised in your actions, through therapy. And all this is only possible if you have a therapist who is committed and sincerely strives to communicate, empathise, comfort and gently but firmly helps you work on yourself and that's what Dr Dharav does, a rare quality that unfortunately most of the psychiatrists today lack, especially of investing more in patient counselling rather than disposing off the patient with some medicine prescription. All it takes to heal yourself through his consultations is honesty, willingness to see, understand and improve and the patience to give it the time it takes. Undoubtedly he is the finest psychiatrist I have known.

I encourage people that just as we should seek professional help for other problems we face, we should seek it for our emotional hurts and mental illnesses also. Seeking help is not a sign of weakness. You only have to solve your problems. But with right guidance you can do it faster and better.
