Desi Consultants

Since the therapists are expensive here, are there any apps where I can pay a therapist from India for remote therapy sessions? Any recommendations?(For Depressio, anxiety and self confidence issues)

Asking for a friend - she is having many issues with her boyfriend and couldn’t decide if she wants to marry or not. Can she take help from a therapist and what kind of therapist it can be ?

Yes, better help is not related to EAP (employer assistance program). Or she can contact a therapist or counselor who specializes in relationships....

Also, are there any significant differences in the skills/proficiency of Indian therapists vs the ones in the US?

Deloitte OP, sorry you’re experiencing what you are. Not fun and it’s very courageous of you to confront your mental health challenges. The EAPs are usually equipped to only help deal with work related issues. If your insurance covers therapy, go to an appt with an EAP anyway, then ask them to recommend a therapist. The latter will anyway we needed for long term support for what you’re experiencing. Contrary to what Manager1 is saying above - I have had very good experiences with Indian therapists in India and non Indian therapists in the states. If you feel only a desi therapist will be able to understand what you’re going through and help you, it’s a myth. Yes cultural nuances will need to be explained, but good therapists should be able to draw larger trends in behavior universal to all humans. Good luck!!

In PwC, firm offers 6 therapy sessions for free. It’s part of some of new initiatives that firm has taken, not part of default insurance I guess. I did not know until very lately. You may want to check within deloitte if they have something like this before paying it by yourself.

Look into your firm’s employee assistance program. There are tons of resources out there.

I’ve had a great experience with the counselor through EAP - ours is in house so that’s probably the difference!
