Incredible Counsellor

It’s been 20 years Arti and me are friends and I am very fortunate and blessed to have met her in my life. I have seen her determination and hard work in pursuing her career very closely and appreciate this striving spirit inside her to constantly evolve and better herself. Her empathetic and listening traits of her personality have been the life-blood of her success in every aspect of her life – be it as a friend and as a professional. She loves adventure and novelty and makes sure that she lives life to the fullest. As a counsellor she is incredible. Her patience, trustworthiness and simplicity makes it comfortable for anyone to open themselves up to her and share their inner-most concerns with her. I wish you Arti and your team my best wishes in your endeavour of making this world a beautiful place to live in with amazing minds and souls.

Excellent Counsellor

ARTI is an excellent counsellor. She is a good listener and gives a lot of time to her clients followed up by sincere advice which has helped the clients to solve their problems. Students in particular go through some tough times during their growing up years and parents find it difficult to make them understand. Here is where Arti comes in and makes things easier for both, the student and the parents. Her excellent demeanour and sweet smile are the factors which make a client very comfortable when they walk into her chamber. I have recommended a few of my students to her and have seen some remarkable changes in them. I wish Arti a bright future.

डॉक्टर आरती कांदॊळकरांच्या बाबतीत माझा फारच चांगलाअनुभव आहे. माझ्या मित्राच्या आजराचे कारण चिंता आहे असे आमच्या डॉक्टरांनी सांगितले व डॉक्टरांनी आरती कांदॊळरांना भेटायला सांगितले. त्याप्रमाणे त्यांच्या पहिल्याच भेटीत चर्चा केल्याने मनमोकळे होऊन आपण चिंताग्रस्त व भीतीग्रस्त असल्याची जाणीव झाली. त्यावर त्यांनी या त्रासापासून मुक्त होण्यासाठी त्यांच्या चार भेटीत खूपच चांगले मार्गदर्शन केले व दैनंदिन काही सराव करण्यास सांगितले. त्याचा माझ्या मित्रास फारच चांगली चैतन्यपूर्ण अनुभूती आली आहे व चांगला फायदा झाला आहे. आम्ही डॉक्टर आरती कांदॊळकरांचे खूपच आभारी आहोत. त्यांच्या कार्यास आमच्या मनापासून शुभेच्छा.

Calmed my anger

I have undergone counselling with Dr. Arti Kandolkar during my 2nd-3rd year of engineering. Since then I have changed for good. I am able to understand where my anger is coming from and what I can do to calm myself. My social relationships have improved a lot, now I get along with people better. I am able to understand my qualities better and since then I have started taking decisions that are helping me to see the new perspective towards my career.
Ma’am has also counselled me for issues that I faced in my childhood that were affecting my behaviour then and has helped me change the way I look back.
Arati ma’am is a very kind person and she is very patient when dealing with the client. She was very genuine and understanding when I was taking counselling. I felt safe talking about my issues because she did not judge me for who and how I am.

Thank you ma’am

Immense source of support

Her excellent pragmatic approach and advice often enabled me to understand myself better and come up with workable solutions. Very much thankful and wish her a success in every aspect of her life.
A special thanks for helping me broadened my mind and looking forward for a positive attitude towards life.

माझ्या पुतणी करता आम्ही आरती मॅडमना भेटलो. पाहिल्यावर प्रसन्न वाटावे असे छान व्यक्तिमत्व. प्रश्णोत्तरे सुरू झाली. हळूहळू तिचे मन मोकळे केले. भूक लागत नाही, झोप येत नाही, सारखी काळजी वाटते. या वर त्यांनी लगेच सांगितले काळजी हा बरे होणारा प्रकार आहे आणि भुकेसाठी लगेच उपाय सांगते. मग तिला काही गोष्टींचा सराव करायला सांगितले. तास, दीड तास बोलल्यावर माझ्या पुतणीला हलके वाटू लागले. भूकेची सुद्धा जाणीव झाली. मन आणि शरीर हे कसे एकमेकांना जोडले आहे हे सांगून शरीर शास्त्र समजावून सांगितले. माझ्या पुतणीने मॅडमनी  सांगितलेला सराव सुरू केला आणि थोडी थोडी भूक लागली. प्रत्यक्ष भेट आणि इतर वेळी आवर्जून फोन करणे, अडचण विचारणे शिवाय प्रोत्साहन देणे यामुळे तिला आरती मॅडमचा खूप आधार वाटला. अनुभव असा आला की मॅडमशी बोलल्यावर तिला खूप बरे वाटू लागले. त्यामुळे पाॅझिटीव्हिटी वाढली. दीड, दोन महिन्यांत तिला खूप फरक पडला. मॅडमवरचा विश्वास वाढला. माझ्या पुतणीने एक गोष्ट नियमित केली, ती म्हणजे त्यांनी सांगितलेला सराव! त्यात खंड पडला नाही. मॅडमचे तेच म्हणणे आहे की, प्रयत्नांती परमेश्वर. दिलेला सराव न चुकता केला तर तुम्ही पहिल्या सारखे उत्साही आणि प्रसन्न व्हाल. माझी पुतणी आता पूर्व पदावर आली आहे. हसरा आणि खेळकर स्वभाव जागा झाला आहे. ती म्हणतेच, मी मॅडम मुळे बरी झाले, ह्यावर त्यांचं म्हणणे आहे, “मी फक्त मदत केली प्रयत्न तर तुमचेच आहेत. ते तुम्ही प्रामाणिकपणे केलेत आणि बऱ्या झालात. तुम्ही बऱ्या झालात यातच मला आनंद आहे”.

या निमित्ताने एका चांगल्या गाईडची आणि हितचिंतकाची ओळख झाली.

दडपण दूर झालं

आपल्या डोक्यात कायम विचार असतात, पण जेव्हा ह्या विचारांच प्रमाण जास्त होतं तेव्हा नेमक काय करायचं हे आपल्याला कळत नाही. असंच काहीसं माझं झालं होतं. मी एक मेडीकल स्टुडंट आहे. माझ्या आयुष्यात काही गोष्टी अश्या घडत गेल्या की त्याचा मी कधी विचारही केला नव्हता. कालांतराने मला दडपण येऊ लागले. समोर येईल त्या व्यक्तीवर संशय घेऊ लागलो. या सर्व गोष्टींचा परिणाम अभ्यासावर होऊ लागला. सगळं सहनशक्तीच्या पलिकडे गेलं. अशातच मला आरती मॅडम भेटल्या, आणि बोलता बोलता त्यांनी ओळखल की माझ्या मनाची अवस्था काय आहे. तिथुन खरी सुरूवात झाली माझ्या उपचाराला. मला आरती मॅडमने हे जाणवून दिल की, काही लोकांमुळे माझ्या आयुष्यात हे प्रकार झाले, त्यावरुन मी सगळ्याना दोषी का ठरवतोय. मी पुन्हा पहिल्यासारखा सगळ्यांसोबत बोलु लागलो.
पुढे आरती मॅडम ने मला शिकवलं की, त्या लोकांकडे दुर्लक्ष करुन आपल्या कामा मध्ये कसं गुंतून राहायचं. सगळ्या गोष्टी पहिल्यासारख्या होत गेल्या. ते फक्त आरती मॅडम मुळे. अजुनही त्या माझी वरच्यावर विचारपुस करतात, माझ्या आयुष्यात आरती मॅडम मुळे खुप मोठा बदल झाला.
धन्यवाद आरती मॅडम 🙏🏻
तुम्ही नसता तर आज मी नसतो 🙏🏻

Gifted Counselor

Arti is amazingly adept at what she does and she’s a truly gifted friend, who gave me strength whenever I need to calm my inner turmoil and move forward during suffix times. I really appreciate your ability to listen deeply and maintaining confidentiality which helped during tough times. Though it’s been 10 years since knowing her, her lessons are still very much with me. Whenever the path in my life is unclear or I am doubting myself, Arti has a way of cutting through the clutter and helping me find the most honest and true path to take. I always leave feeling like I got what I needed and know how to proceed. I find great peace in our relationship. And whenever someone asks me if I can recommend a psychologist Arti’s number is the first one I give them.

Career Counseling Light

Arti ma’am did my career counseling when I was 18 year old aimless boy. She told me that I was ideal and not to flaunt, but made for Civil Services. After the session, I tried some other things, but now as I write this review, I am preparing for Civil Services entrance exam. I find it uncanny how Ms. Arti looked into my future and saw my interest when, at that time, I couldn’t decide what I wanted to have for dinner.

Ms. Arti has to be the sweetest and best person I know. I instantly felt comfortable talking to her about anything, and I continue to feel so. The fact that I decided to dedicate my life to something she titled as “my passion” years ago speaks for her ability to really understand people. I do thank Ms. Arti for showing me the light and for really listening and understanding me.

Emphatic Personality

I have known Arti as a friend for over a decade now. Over-time Aarti has taken concerted efforts to gain training in psychology and develop her skills, as an academic and clinical professional. She is an excellent listener and has comforting words. She has an emphatic personality, a trait much necessary in counselors.

Very Empathetic

Dr Arti is my co-counselor. We know each other from last two years, as we are in RC. Also we are best friends. She is a very good counselor. She has great listening skills. Moreover, she is very empathetic and fact based counselor. She is a very happy and cheerful personality. She has a deep understanding
in terms of clinical psychology, autism, children psychology and have the ability to utilize it at right time. She is an extraordinary human being. She accepts her client unconditionally which is the best quality of a counselor. She uses all her caliber for helping clients. She treats all her clients very cordially. She evaluates the difficulties of clients very simply. Also she is very honest and I feel very pleasant with her, and I hope that everybody must be feeling the same.

Pure professionalism

Arti was my colleague at Disha School for Special Children and we share a cordial bond of more than a decade. What fascinated me about her is the pure professionalism blended with her personality. She is a perfect example of a humanistic counselor.
I have seen Arti as a composed and rationale personality. Adding to all these is her liveliness and perfect sense of humor, which creates positiveness and confidence. Besides these qualities what had astonished me about Arti at Disha was her knowledge of graphology, a perfect analysis that she had done of her colleagues.
A counselor to the cores values, I wish Arti all the very best in her future endeavors. God bless you dear.

Commitment & Dedication

Dr. Arti and I worked as counselors at Ish Kripa Sadan institute, Goa. The institute has been working for the cause of women in Goa. In my opinion, she was one of the most able counselor at that institute, and her passion for work as a counselor was seen through the high level of commitment and dedication she was always ready with. Her passion for work allowed her to be very professional. Even after spending so many hours together and talking over various topics, she never revealed any of her client details, which are prohibited by her profession as a counselor. Needless to say, she was very punctual and always did her written work, like submitting reports, on time.

Counseling is not an easy task, as we have to go through quite difficult cases of depression, anxiety, low self esteem etc almost every day. She managed well to separate the profession from her personal life. Being with her helped me to keep the negativeness arising from my counseling experiences, away.

She has a good knowledge of psychometric tests, is a good listener, who doesn’t get bogged down by differences in other’s opinion and supports a peaceful debate. This makes her a good choice in a team environment, where she can lead by example.

I am certain that Arti is going to continue to do great and creative things in her future. She is talented, caring, intuitive, dedicated, and focused in her pursuits. I highly recommend her.
