    To get clarity over my personal issues which were affecting my relationship, I talked to Dr. Shishir Basarkar. He is actually a great person first then a professional. I really liked talking with him. However, we met virtually i.e., online counselling but my connection with was more than real. I thank him for the guidance he provided me with.

    I thank Dr. Shishir who has guided my 20 years old son very well regarding his career. My son has not a good academic record, not even satisfactory. I was stressed about him and his career, like what he would do in his life. I wanted him to talk to a psychologist which was why I got online sessions booked for him. Shishir sir assisted him and guided him. He also told me about his interaction with sir. He got the clear idea about his career after counselling. He is doing great right now. He got the best guidance from Shishir sir and I thank him for showing the future path to my son.

    I had always been teased for being a shy type of boy. I was called by other different names as well just to tease me, provoke me and insult me. I developed my personality as a person who hated crowds, and panicked easily when surrounded by so many people. I rarely go to college. I just went for the practical, viva and exams and I didn’t go to any college party, fest or other programs and functions. This is how I spent my school and college-life. However I was a brilliant student but with this type of behavior and personality I couldn’t go abroad for my further studies. I took a one year gap to work on myself and I also took help from a psychologist named, Dr. Shishir Basarkar. I had all my sessions over the video call with him. He told me about my condition i.e., social anxiety and also taught me some techniques to overcome such issues while being in public.
    I don’t know how I should thank him. He has given wings to my dreams. I am not better and still follow what I have learnt from him.

    I recommend Dr. Shishir Basarkar for child counselling. If your child has any serious concern that is deeply affecting his mental health and academic performance, you should think about counselling. It will only benefit you and your child to deal with such issues that come to harm mental health only.
    I hope you will find this information useful.
    Have a great day!

    I fell into depression after my breakup. I needed counselling because I wasn’t feeling alright. Counselling was my first and last hope to come out of this phase. I already ruined so many things and didn’t want to lose more. I felt so much more relaxed after I talked to Shishir sir. I was having online sessions with him but never felt any difficulty while talking to him. It is a safe and convenient method that can be opted for counselling. If you are looking for a good psychologist, talk to Shishir sir. He will surely help you.
