Stella is very good counselor .She is very good in her approach . After meeting her the I have seen changes in my behavior and also in my Husband\`s behavior. Initially we used to ignore our problems and used to end up fighting. But after Stella\`s sessions there were lot of changes. I would recommend her.If you are looking forward for a happy married life. I won`t say she will solve your all problems but She will tell you the ways how to solve and address your own problem
Stella had counseled me few months back, she listened to me effectively and understood things from my point of view. She focused on what was important to me and accepted what I said without judging me. She fostered a safe and trusting environment. During the course of my counseling I learned various techniques to deal with the issues which was necessary and let go of what was not. She challenged me when if that was appropriate and she began and finished our sessions on time. I recommend her and I would certainly go to her again and may well do so in the future.
Stella is an excellent counselor. Her ability to understand the issue in detail, and the guidance provided, is a skill that not only hits the root of the problem, but resolves it, improves your confidence and gives you perspectives and options to deal with difficult situations as they come up. Emdr is a tremendously useful therapy, and Stella administers it excellently. Installation of positive beliefs has made me into a strong person. I highly recommend this clinic for any guidance you may need, and you will come back a healed and confident person
Stella was very honest with me and put into words what I was feeling and why. She made me more understanding of trauma and speedily led me through flushing it out and accepting myself. Within a few sessions I progressed from weighed down with anxiety to feeling light and bright. While she guided the process, it felt individual. I highly recommend her emdr therapy
I would like to thank Stella for all these months she has worked on me. The positivity she has given me has got me to this stage where I am confident about myself. I am truly grateful for the time she has invested in me. When she mentioned Emdr, I was a little apprehensive about it but I understood how effective it was right from the first session of it. It helped me deal with my anxiety better, irrespective of fact that my sessions are over. I will try my best to keep in touch with her always. She is a gem of a person and an excellent counselor. Thanks a lot Stella.
