“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life
and you will call it fate.” Carl Jung

Little did I know the power of this statement until I began my therapy sessions with Atul Mehra. I first contacted Atul in the early part of 2014 when my adult son was diagnosed with a mental illness. I wanted him in therapy sessions with Atul because I knew that the key to his recovery was through the portal of his subconscious, which only psychodynamic therapy could unlock.

As fate would have it, I was the one who ended up in therapy for my anxieties and sorrows, not all of them related to this particular situation. In June of 2014, I began the first of my 20 sessions of Focal therapy and thus began a remarkable journey of self-recovery that culminated in a beautiful story of love reborn and second chances.As a divorced woman and a single mother, I had raised my son on my own until he turned 12 years old. Then, I met someone and we decided to get married. This is when my son left me and went to live with his father.

My experience with Atul is so life changing, it’s very hard to explain exactly how it happens. Therefore, I will use a concrete examples of what happens to illustrate what benefits I have gained so far and stand to gain in the long run. My brain is a computer. In the beginning, softwares we’re created and installed; primitive softwares installed for survival and survival only. At the time of creation and installation, these softwares served their purpose as I am still breathing today. Now comes the interesting part…

Atul is the computer guy. While acknowledging that the above mentioned softwares were quite useful, he helps you understand that they are now obsolete and, sometimes even a nuisance. He then proposes new softwares; ones that are more suited for todays situations. They are not only good for survival, but they are so much more efficient that you can actually live in harmony with yourself instead of living with the fear created by your past experiences.

With that being said, my family life has improved DRAMATICALLY! My relationship with my husband, children and other family members is constantly improving. Atul is truly a godsend in our lives. I am grateful for him everyday.

My life has already done a complete 180 degree turn in only a few months since I started working with Atul. I had been using alcohol and drugs for almost a 20 year span and my relation with my wife of almost 7 years was hanging by a thread. Even though I have 2 beautiful kids (1 and 4) I wasn’t able to manage any type of normality in my life. I was depressed, angry, sad, self destructive, isolated , medicated, dishonest (most importantly to myself) and I was having anxiety attacks several times a day.

My wife and I were constantly having out of control fights and screaming matches almost daily (Sometimes almost even the whole day) My emotions were completely in control of not only my decision making process but they caused me to life my life up until now with a very narrow minded and extremely warped perception.

I felt like I was a horse with blinders on, I couldn’t see anything other than my own selfishness and selfish needs. As much as I attempted to be the best husband and Father  I could be to my 2 children I was miserably failing and if I continued on this path I would have (god forbid) ended up in dead, in jail or even worse living the rest of my life in this condition and not have had the ability to love, protect and guide my children to the life that they deserve.

Now the good news!

I have been  seeing Psychiatrists, psychologists and Counselors for the last 20 years only to be misdiagnosed as having attention deficit disorder and being clinically depressed. None of the therapies I have been in helped. Psychiatrists would listen to my problems for half and hour and then would write me prescriptions for mind altering medications that some of the side effects were worse than the symptoms while counselors would ask me how was my last week and talk about what I should be doing this week or they would suggests self help books to read. All of these were band-aid solutions that have left me on the brink of losing my marriage. Unfortunately no one thought of getting to the root cause of the problems. This is where Atul comes in.

I’m so very grateful for the experience of my sessions with Atul. I have been part of other therapy in the past but nothing come close to the breakthroughs that I have had with this therapy.  I have been able to start a new practice of creating my world the way I would like to see it.  I found that I had a lot of issues buried very deep in my sub-consciences, things that I have not looked at for many years and not knowing that they were causing blocks with my everyday life.

The last year of my life has been a roller coaster of emotions and difficult situations that I was dealing with.  Since my sessions with Atul I have been able to come to peace with my past and learn how to deal with my day to day life in a more powerful way and it very much shows in many ways.  Knowledge is power and really learning about myself on a new level has open the possibilities and new experiences like I have never seen before. Thank you Atul from the bottom of my heart and I’m now looking into my future with a clear vision of what I’m going to create and the goals that I know I can reach.

Sincerely Dana J.

After years of considering when or whether to and even whom to seek for guidance and counseling, I was fortunate enough to find Atul. Being of South Asian descent, I felt he would understand the enormous strain and pressure I was under, by the continued malicious actions of my in-laws.   I was at such a point of desperation, with thoughts of divorce, running away or suicide. I knew I was just holding on for giving my children the best I could.

We have known Mr. Atul Kumar Mehra for a short period and would definitely recommend him to anyone that is in need of counselling or therapy.  He is understanding and dedicated to his profession.

Mr. Mehra assessed our problems, in couple’s therapy, and provided solutions.  Atul made us feel comfortable, gave us hope, and showed us how to be happy.  He showed us how to resolve our problems and helped us focus on positive aspects of our relationship.  At the end of his sessions we began living differently and looked at things in a different perspective.

We are truly grateful to meet Atul; he showed us patience, caring and provided knowledgeable information to us.

We would refer Mr. Atul Kumar Mehra to anyone who requires counselling or therapy.  You will gain priceless information, but more importantly, a friend.

Thank you Atul, we do wish you continued success. We are forever grateful.

God Bless You

Progress following 15 sessions
I first met Atul ten months before my therapies started as I was interested in getting a diagnosis scan from his Biopulsar Reflexograph. I learned a lot about myself through Atul’s interpretation of that scan which still leaves me fascinated. I was impressed with Atul’s professionalism and his care in providing excellent service. At the time it never occurred to me that I would later need Atul’s Psychodynamic of Depth Psychology therapy – especially when I found I had no other options.
Two months after, I was hospitalized with a diagnosis of Bipolar and was put on a variety of medicines which provided some assistance. Over the subsequent months my psychiatrist adjusted the medicine I was receiving but I was still experiencing symptoms of confused thoughts.

Melanie C. (Quito, Ecuador)

September 03, 2010

My name is Melanie and I’m 21 years old. Before I started my therapy with Atul Kumar Mehra in January, 2010, in Ecuador, I was a person of many fears. I was afraid of darkness, solitude; I feared men, failure, what people would think of me, and I feared authority. I held a way of life of evading responsibilities for a long time, for perhaps longer than ten years.
I avoided everything that made me remember that actually I didn’t feel capable of doing what I wanted to be happy. Many of my academic and personal plans were procrastinated or ruled out because of that insecurity in myself and lack of confidencein my capabilities. I spent most of my life reproaching myself for the things I did and didn’t do in the past and also worrying about the future. With time, I suppose, I became an observer that never did anything or did too little to grow since I had such a low opinion of myself.
My case, for the average person, is very difficult to understand or even listen to, and I always thought about that; that I would be rejected or frowned upon for what had happened to me when I was a kid.

Gabriela T. (Quito, Ecuador)
December 16, 2011

I started my therapy when I was 26 and half years old, it continued for 2 years. It was a difficult decision for me to do the therapy because I was very skeptical and closed, and furthermore it was scary to face my past.
I was introduced to Atul Kumar Mehra by my sister, who was doing therapies with him. One day, as fate would have it, I went to his office, we talked and I realized that it was time to do something for myself, and I started my therapy. It was a great but a very difficult experience. Thanks to Atul’s monitoring, I continued my therapy, but nevertheless very often I looked for excuses to leave it. At first, I started to believe that it was all a figment of my imagination, but gradually I understood that he was bringing up my old shut off memories.

Rosio T. (Quito, Ecuador)

Before starting the psychodynamic therapy of depth psychology with Atul Kumar Mehra, I was being treated for six months by a psychiatrist for Depression caused by anxiety, in which I was hospitalized for five days to receive sleep therapy, and then received weekly sessions and prescribed many medications (anti-psychotics and anti-depressants) for months during which time I didn’t feel any improvement in my symptoms. I carried out only what the doctor told me to do because I wanted to be released from the hospital. The anxieties continued, I felt sadness inside me, I did not find any peace; moreover I could not find any solutions for what took me into this state.

I would like to express my thanks to Atul, the fact that today I can walk almost pain free – to live normal. My problems began in December 2011 when I was diagnosed with lumbar disc herniation at L4-L5. For 3 weeks I was admitted to ER-William Osler hospital, where I received treatment which improved my pain. In March, pain intensified, and after control MRI performed at the same hospital, “I was offered the solution – surgery. My family doctor said only God or surgery can help me. I choose God, so I started to do a reaserch on the internet and I found Atul website. Because I was very impressed with his performances, I decided to contact him.
