Bringing you the best of mental health every week.
When I used to work at an inner city community mental health clinic, Rekha Shrivastava had the office next door. Rekha is a quiet, unassuming lady. Her clients loved her. For good reason. I would watch them walk into her office miserable and walk out happy. I was never quite sure what they did in there, but Rekha called it cognitive behavioral therapy.
Well, it’s years later and Rekha is still making people happy, only now she’s in private practice and she calls it hypnosis. They never let us do hypnosis at the inner city community mental health clinic. It was considered a whacky, alternative type of therapy, even though there’s good evidence it helps with a wide range of problems.
