“It was my first encounter with a clinical psychologist. I never thought in the wildest of my dreams that there is a therapy that treats without pills. I was unsure of my problems, of what I would say to the “doctor”. But after a few sessions, she extracted all there was to extract… and this extraction was necessary.

I tell what I feel like telling, without a slightest hesitation of being judged. Dr Swati’s satisfactory advices, sheer friendly attitude and her mastery on understanding an issue is quite magical.

I tell her something in gibberish and she makes sense out of it and present before me a solution to all “those problems”. I wait for each of her sessions.”

I am attending sessions with Dr Swati since three months. She has a very good nature, is patient while listening, understands and solves problems. She is a highly skillful therapist in terms of implementing methods in the right way, at the right time. She allows the person to be totally comfortable with her in the session. She is systematic in her approach and helps not only by talking but also giving genuine solutions (all worksheets she gave me really helped).

I Never felt that I am discussing my problems with an outsider….I always felt very comfortable with Dr Swati….very motivative and always tells us to smile. Moreover I have started feeling positive from her. She also makes us understand….how have to have confidence in yourself.



I am suffering from OCD since 10 years. I am on medication. Treatment should also include cognitive behavioral therapy in addition to medication. Being a OCD patient, I m v indecisive. Irrelevant thoughts adversely affect my day to day work, dr swati made me learn how to challenge those thoughts with thought challenging technique. She listens to her patient v carefully. She helped me taking personal decisions. I usually concentrate on negative side of every person including my family but she helped me to concentrate on overall personality of a person.



Dear Dr Swati you are an intelligent and compassionate therapist…your empathy is excellent…patient and care givers require such a warm atmosphere which u provide during our sessions..Best Wishes
