I owe you a debt of gratitude for some counseling you provided to me, by telephone, in 2013 and I apologize that I have not thanked you sooner. I first benefited from your services in 2010 or so, when I sought advice in person on digestive issues from an Ayurvedic perspective. In 2013, I again sought your advice, but this time concerning a new relationship. As you may now remember, my new relationship followed a long, post-divorce bachelorhood, and I was experiencing a great deal of anxiety related to the situation, which you helped me recognize as such, and manage, with great success.
I am glad to report that I am now married, and my wife (the new relationship mentioned above) and I are expecting a baby girl in late June. I would like you to know that we are so happy — to the core — and I attribute a fundamental portion of my own happiness to you.
Best wishes to you, Sujatha, and please do not be surprised if you receive baby pictures from us someday.
I worked with Sujatha to release some deep emotional pain that was coming up for me. She used a technique with me called EFT. Being a physician, I was hesitant initially, wondering about its validity. I realized that it taps acupressure points while allowing a beautiful neural emotional feedback system which allowed me to tap into my wellbeing. I realized too that the trust with the practitioner is critical. I found Sujatha to be calm, insightful, adaptive, attuned, astute and completely allowing of natural process, all of which allowed me to heal as I needed to. As a physician, I am also keenly aware of the need for close followup and care. Sujatha was deeply present to the effect of the therapy on me, and what would continue to come up for me in waves. This allowed me to relax fully into the process and into her as a trust worthy guide and therapist. I am observing greater power, energy and well-being throughout my mind-body, and the existential suffering that accompanies living to not be overwhelming but instead be something as natural as breath, and to be gateways to my own health. I am so appreciative of both her as therapist, and her mastery of this technique.
