Through every stage of our lives, we can find ourselves in situations that make us feel happy, sad, frustrated, annoyed, content, excited or anything in between.  As a counselor, my goal is to be the mirror where people can see how their life is and unabashedly be themselves. And together, we can work to make sure that what we see is a happy reflection. That’s how the “Happy Mirror” was born.

Looking back, getting in touch with Malavika has been one of the best decisions in my life. Though I was skeptical at first (because it seemed too simple), Malavika’s approach at integrating techniques in conversations really helped me open up better compared to answering a list of questions. Malavika is a great listener and her attention to details is amazing. When I contacted Malavika, I was feeling too dependent and at a low point in life. Over a single session, she reminded me of my strengths and made me aware how I’ve always been indepedent. Malavika is helping me understand emotions and their triggers, and how to navigate social and personal situations by paying more attention or planning ahead. She is also extremely flexible and kindly accomodated my field work schedules and terrible internet. It has been wonderful working with Malavika, and I am really happy to have found a warm and accesible therapist!

After hearing about friends’ experiences, I expected my search for a therapist/counsellor to be a matter of excruciating trial-and-error. How fortunate I was indeed to get it right on my first try! Malavika was nothing short of amazing from our first session until the last one about three months later. I was always completely at ease while talking to her, often feeling like I was talking to a friend. Malavika helped me navigate a particularly difficult and anxious period in my life, helping me to take a step back to look at the bigger picture and empowering me to take charge of my situation. I am all the better for my sessions with her, which gave me a sense of control when I felt like things were spiralling downwards.

It’s comforting to know that you can rely on Malavika, especially in times of great need, regardless of whether you have a session scheduled or not. I have often sent her messages and she has been nothing short of helpful and understanding, even taking the extra step to check on me every now and then. I’m in a much better and happier place now, which would never have been possible without her. I have since gone on to recommend her to many other people, who have also had an extremely good experience with her and thanked me for it.
Thank you for being amazing, Malavika!!

Malavika has been a fantastic listener with this innate ability to empathize, assess and identify the true cause for concern. I had initially been skeptical of having these conversations over VC but, these apprehensions were quickly put to rest nearly half-way into our first talk.

Continue the great work and I will be sure to recommend you to any body else that I feel could do with some professional help. Best of Luck.

PS: Thank you for checking in on me every now and then. Feels extremely reassuring.

Working with Malavika has been such a great journey to self-growth and increased self-love. I have found myself evolving tremendously in such a short amount of time. Compared to other therapists, she stands out for me when it comes to the tools she provides – by helping me understand different perspectives when approaching situations. I enjoy the assignments after each session she gives, as it helps solidify things we discuss. Malavika has always approached sessions with so much compassion, warmth and optimism and truly wants to help her clients to be the best versions of themselves. I’m blessed to have found someone like her who is so dependable, sweet and kind-hearted! She is extremely insightful, as she helps her clients understand their weaknesses or blockages and hones in on their skills and strengths in order to move them forward in a positive direction in their lives. By bringing out my more logical and practical side, I have lessened my problems and have made wiser, more level-headed and better decisions. Throughout our sessions, I have become much more positive, confident and strong as a person. I would recommend her to everyone looking for a dedicated therapist who goes above and beyond for her clients!

Malavika  I know how good you are. I keep telling to my friends how I have found a perfect counsellor for myself

I want to thank you for your help and advice at a time when I was feeling very low. I think that talking to you helped me voice all the thoughts in my head and channelize my thoughts in the forward direction  I think writing down the pro’s and con’s about my options really helped me. I will remember that from now on 

Again, I am very happy that I decided to come and talk to you. I think I gained perspective and confidence. And, I am happy to know that there is someone who I can come and talk to in times of need.
