Aur agar aapko lagta hai aap bhi maansik ya jazbaati takleefon se guzar rahe hain, to aap bhi kisi aise vyakti ko dhund sakte hai jo professional hai, trained hai, jo aapki madad kar sakta hai. Isme koi sharam nahi hai” (My daughter Ira and I have been seeking therapy for many years now and have been benefiting greatly from it.
