Testimonials

Since the onset of COVID, the need for mental wellness has gained more prominence than ever. It was a mentally testing time for all, hence as a company we decided to engage with Mental health experts who would help our employees to deal with the situation better. Saantvan came onboard, we have done multiple interventions with them since then and it has been an amazing experience having them as our Mental Wellness partners. Our employees have benefited a lot with their sessions and personal help as well. I wish them all the best in their journey of helping all the people and improving their lives.

Kamal Tilokani Assistant Head - Employee Engagement, DNEG

Such a seamless, fun, and brilliant experience working with Saantvan. Both Minal and Surbhi have immense knowledge about mental health. They are a kind, empathetic, and fun team to work with. At Unherd, they inspired and helped us to work with adolescents in a different and much better way! They understand and empathize with their clients. I think every person that comes across Minal and Surbhi, is usually left with such positive, fun, and happy vibes. Wherever they go, I think they spread such joy! Grateful that we have psychologists like Minal and Surbhi who are making a positive difference in the world - thank you for your service and for all that you do to make the world a happy place! I completely recommend them for any psychology-related services. Would love to continue to be involved. More power to team Saantvan!

Alister D'Monte Founder & CEO, Unherd

The School of Excellence takes the opportunity to thank you Minal & Surbhi to address and connect on our webinar session "Mental Health" on 22nd June'20. Times such as these, the pandemic the pandora box of all feelings needed a voice and ear and you both ensured the participants were able to speak easily. Grateful for such an in-depth session.

Smeeta Gulvady Head - The School of Excellence

Ms. Minal and Ms. Surbhi conducted a workshop on Gender Sensitisation in our school for secondary children. They made the serious-sounding topic so interactive and fun for the children. Their friendly approach made them relate to the topics discussed. The topic had chances of favouring one sex over the other but the team handled it with balance and we all learned to accept and respect everyone irrespective of their genders. I would definitely love to organise/ attend more workshops by them.

Surabhi Ojha Counsellor At Public Pawar School (Secondary Section)

Saantvan conducted a session on gender sensitisation at Pawar Public School with our grades 9 and 10 students. The subtopics were relevant to what the children are facing these days and delivered in a way that the children could relate to. It was very interactive and they were able to build a good rapport with the students which made them feel comfortable enough to ask questions. At the end the students went home with a better understanding of the various biases that they may have unconsciously imbibed and how to go about being more aware and working towards it.

Monika Agrawal Counsellor at Public Pawar school
Pre primary and primary section

Minal and Surbhi understand the groups necessities. They have an empathetic understanding of the background the children come from and accordingly conduct the sessions. The flow and examples provided by them are easier for the children to understand and reflect onto them. Both are open to the ideas and topics which are suggested by us in Snehasadan.
