Thank you Note for Joseph Rajagopal

This letter is way overdue, and I would like to apologize for not sending this thank you to you any sooner. Where do I start!? Saying thank you, never seem to be enough. Those two words will never be able to hold how much I valued what you have done for me. I would not be here today had I not met you.

When I first met you, I was in pain and grieving over a breakup. Given the struggles that I was going through, I had given up hope that things could be different from what they were. But you came along and told me to hold on to the hope that things would be better and that you would help me get through it. I believed you.

You have sat with me over the last seven months. I’ve laughed and cried in those sessions with you. I was angry and hurt and ashamed, but most importantly, I’ve healed. Thank you for helping me cope with the pain and also how to see things differently. Through much of your persuasion, I’ve finally bought into mindfulness. Having the ability to take a step back from my thoughts and feelings and identify what is happening and why I am thinking or feeling that way has changed my life. In moments of struggle to be able to be fully present and aware has been an invaluable skill.

I hope you realize how special and what an incredible counselor you are. I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. Thank you for sharing your stories and allowing me to see parts of your life which made it so much easier for me to work with you.

Just to share that I’ve completed my MBA and thank you for being a part of it.

Powering Up to Face Upcoming Challenges

I may not be 100% there yet, but I certainly feel more empowered to navigate and face upcoming challenges knowing that I am well supported. Thank you Joseph for navigating life challenges with me at my darkest hour.

Finding a Safe Space and Overcoming Unhelpful Thoughts

I came to SCC hoping to find a safe space to share my thoughts and feelings surrounding the difficulties I was experiencing. Rafeah was able to create that safe space for me where I felt comfortable to open up and trust her.

Overcoming a Past Relationship

After the break up, it was even harder to accept reality and how things had turn out leading me to getting disturbed sleep and losing my focus in a lot of things. To be honest, at that moment, crying, feeling helpless, not wanting to accept any help (feeling that I am not even worth helping) and committing suicide was even on my thoughts.

Restoring a Marriage

We had gone from having cold wars and fighting, to being able to have discussion about proper parenting of our daughter and how to address her developmental needs.

Overcoming Anxiety and Depression

I’m happier than I was a couple months ago. I feel less afraid of the constantly-changing world and how I thought I needed to fix everything that was wrong and evil going on all the time, if not I was just wasting my life. I have a lot of gratitude for Rafeah because she sat with me through all of this, and helped guide me towards a lot of insight and revelations about myself.

Looking Forward to Creating The Life I Desire

Now, I have the ability to do things I could never have done previously since my mind is clear without unbearable amounts of repressed grief, anger and extreme feelings of injustice clouding my justice and hampering my ability to focus and prioritize.

[Testimonial] Uncovering Issues and Resolving Them

I felt overwhelmed at first but step by step she guided me through and I overcame my negative thoughts and got rid of toxic people in my life who I previously thought were not affecting me at all.

[Testimonial] Discovering My Own Identity and Understanding Myself

I have gained a better understanding of myself and learned to be better than who I was previously after attending the counseling sessions. I'm very grateful to the counsellor for everything which he has done to help us as we wouldn't have made much progress without him.
