What does consultation include?

At your initial consultation, be prepared to talk about yourself in detail. Ayurvedic healing is based on creating balance in all areas of life, so the Dr. Sood will use various diagnostic techniques to examine your body as well as taking an extensive personal and medical history.
Areas you will look into include (but are not limited to) your relationships, mental wellbeing, and habits, along with aspects of your daily life, from diet to professional and home environment. Based on this Dr. Sood will be able to identify potential causes of imbalance, and will give you personalised advice about how to work with any problems you might be having.
If you are able to come and meet Dr. Sood in person, you can also expect a physical examination tailored to whichever health issues you present, along with traditional Ayurvedic pulse reading.

Skype or phone consultations

If you are unable to come and meet her in person, Dr. Sood is happy to give consultations via phone or Skype. These sessions will cover the same topics as the regular consultations (without the pulse reading) and are an effective way to receive professional and experienced advice from the comfort of your own home.
This type of consultation can also be useful for past patients as a follow-up service to answer any further questions you might have, depending on your needs.
Before your consultation, you will need to fill out a detailed questionnaire that Dr. Sood has designed, so that she can make a quick, accurate diagnosis and you can get the most out of your time together. This can be done by email.
Consultation Charges : 100 $ for an hour.

What can I achieve from a psychological consultation?

From this you should gain a greater degree of self-awareness and be able to start evaluating your own behaviour and the reasons for it. Once you can better understand interactions between yourself and others (including the intention behind these interactions) you will naturally gain clarity and feel calmer and more confident.
In the session you will be given personalised Ayurvedic tools and advice on how to balance your internal stresses or anxiety, along with recommendations of herbs that you can take to help to balance your mind.

“I had more emotional difficulties and more recently physical problems. I feel more equipped to be able to deal with these now and understand how the basics need to be corrected. I was so busy with solving things rather than understanding that I lost touch with myself. Dr Shivani’s psychological help was really useful. I wish I had this simpler understanding earlier.”
