"I reached out to Inner Space Counseling in Oct 2023 because I was growing through a lot of emotional pain. I had earlier done the 8 week mindfulness course with Sadia and hence I sort of knew what I wanted and to some extent what I was getting into when I reached out for Counseling. I was assigned Ms. Shubhra as a therapist. It was very easy to talk to Shubhra - it was like talking to a close friend. When one is in a lot of pain, it is very difficult to see anything beyond the pain and that is when one needs help. Someone who emphatically listens to you; who slowly teaches you how to handle the overwhelm so that you reach a point where you can start to understand what is happening to some extent; the need to give space to one's emotions and feeling; the need to be kind and gentle to yourself. In each session with Shubhra I have experienced what a immense role acceptance and self compassion plays in our overall wellbeing and how non-judgemental attention to our emotions and feeling is necessary for our own emotional physical and mental health - for me this is mindfulness in action. I still have a way to go but I can definitely say that these sessions have helped me understand myself, the people around me and the situation I am in, better." - S.S

"I have the pleasure of engaging in a professional counseling relationship with Shubhra , and I am compelled to express my deepest appreciation for her exceptional work. Her guidance and expertise have been invaluable in helping me address and resolve personal challenges. In our sessions, she displayed a profound level of empathy, patience, and professionalism. Shubhra provides me with a safe and confidential space to discuss my concerns, and her insightful questions and observations consistently led me to a deeper understanding of my issues. I found her therapeutic approach to be highly effective and tailored to my needs.

I am grateful to Shubhra for her unwavering support and commitment to my well-being. Her dedication to the field of counseling is evident, and I believe she has a profound impact on the lives she touches. I wholeheartedly recommend Shubhra to anyone seeking guidance and support on their personal journey." -Z.M

"Through therapy, Shubhra has shown me a way to live in my body that I didn’t know was possible. Shubhra taught me through somatic therapy or exercises on how to process trauma and reconnect to my body safely. I’ve learned how to monitor my nervous system to understand how I’m feeling and then consciously calm myself using love and care instead of negative coping mechanisms. She is patient and compassionate while being proactive and constructively challenging when she needs to be. She creates a safe space while engaging in the therapy, comes highly recommended and anyone would be blessed or lucky to work with her." - R

She creates such comforting, non-judgemental and reassuring space that not one of the conversations felt difficult for me whereas I used to sweat even at the thought of having some of those conversations. There were changes I could see for myself with some of the initial sessions we had but I would not have realized how the process truly helped, if it was not for a personal loss I suffered. I was surprised at the way handled situation was handled and I know for sure it would have been a disaster if it were to happen before I started with the process. So yes, I am thankful that I finally ended up taking therapy and that I found Shubhra. – W

Working with Shubhra has been a very positive experience. My anxiety levels are down. I am able to cope with irritability better. I am not as worried about making mistakes and do not get as upset as I used to, on making mistakes. I have a long way to go, but I believe I have taken the first steps.I am feeling more peaceful than when we started. My relationship with friends, family and most importantly myself has improved. Somehow, Shubhra has held a mirror in front of me and gotten me to see me as I am. She has helped me to revisit traumatic experiences in the past in a more positive light. She is helping me to stay with and identify feelings as they occur. I am finding the last part very difficult and hope to improve in the days to come.Overall, I am really happy to have started this journey. I strongly recommend Shubhra as a counselor.- S.V
