I personally have been shaped by Sadia di’s wisdom, compassion and love. I have struggled a LOT with mental health issues over the years. Sadia di has been strict when needed and gentle otherwise. She did not only help me heal in therapy but also equipped me with tools to work through difficult emotions in everyday life through her mindfulness sessions. -S.K

The phase like this is making me go crazy.. Am working , have two kids… loving husband and concerned friends. but today i feel no one understands what am saying and feel like loosing everything.. I have become silent as i don’t want to share my thoughts cause it rages anger in me and then comes its after effects.. but keeping quiet is making me go crazy with thoughts running in my mind which doesn’t stop at seems to be a standstill…

  8. Dear Wella,

    We understand that this must be a difficult time for you and your son. As parents, it can be very worrisome when your child experiences social anxiety and displays low confidence. To support him further, we need to understand what may be causing these concerns, and help him find ways to deal with the same. This could be done through counselling as a process. We would like to support you and your son via counselling. We have sent you an email regarding some details of the process of counselling. Please check and feel free to get in touch with us.
