I'm glad that I got the chance to be with Rania as my psychologist, she is skilled enough to tackle the patients problem and be able to give exercises that suit one's case. She is such a good listener, through her I'm able to be understood and feel free to share my outstanding feelings and thoughts which I came to know they're the reason behind my mental health problem.

As I move with the sessions with Rania, I become aware of things that matter to me and important to keep an eye on, so that I can know I'm going in the right direction where values and goals are met and achieved.
