“ Some time ago I found myself troubled and I had quite a “heavy heart”. Whilst I seemed fine to everybody around me, I was caught in a circle of inner anxiety about matters related to my parents and early family life. I experienced a range of emotions, including anger, resentment, frustration, sadness, stress and grief. I felt that these emotions were tending to hold me back in my life and had become an energy drain, too.
I felt a need to “come to terms” with certain issues, to grieve for my late father and to find a sense of forgiveness. Most importantly, I sought a sense of inner peace and solace.

” I first heard about Dr Chadha through a friend who had experienced one of his talks at a seminar on the Science of Meditation.
Dr Chadha has extraordinary communication skills and an amazing ability to put one at ease. His coaching sessions are both motivating and inspiring. These sessions touch on all areas of life including spiritual, relationships, emotional, family,corporate, financial and business. Self-awareness emerges from his sessions leading to raised self-esteem, self-motivation, courage, inspiration and hope for positive change in the future in both ones personal and business life.
Dr Chadha believes inherently that people are capable of reaching goals themselves. He has an apparent strong belief in himself and his determination to do his best for you as a client, is apparent.”

“Approx the year 1999, my mother heard of Dr. Chadha through a therapist she was using .She told me that he was a medical doctor that didn’t use the same drug approach to psychiatric issues that most medical doctors use.
I gather from her that it took some time before I eventually agreed to go and to see him but I found a very relaxed and very relaxing therapist sitting in front of me.
We instantly built up rapport as he like me felt that the body was an intelligent organism that didn’t lie, and that we should be listening to the secrets of our “dysfunctions” rather than disowning or medicating the issue.
I guess you could say that Dr.Chadha believed in the body’s capacity to heal itself in the right environment.
My major issue was the death of my father when I was 6yrs old and the inability I had to access the pain, or more accurately process the pain that I suffered then and the ensuing dramas.
Looking back now I can see how this would be normal for a 6yr old child to go into denial at some level but I got to 31yrs of age before anyone even suggested to me that I was in denial!!
So Dr.Chadha had to fight off the non-believers for me and protect me as I accessed some really raw emotions .The non-believers included my Professor of Psychiatry in NUI Galway, where I was in college [studying medicine] at the time.
Prof Fahy simply didn’t “buy” that someone could have a 26yr delayed grief reaction!
My step-father wasn’t having a “bar of it” and felt that it was a ridiculous concept.
The emotions stemmed from years of self doubt and underachievement and unhappiness mostly due to severe identity weakness, I simply didn’t really know where I came from.
My feeling is that the strongest help I received from Dr Chadha was just allowing me to believe that my body could suppress such a memory for such a long time and to validate my pain. I loved coming to see him which I did weekly for approx 2 yrs and eventually I was able to get back to college and complete my degree in medicine.”
Thank god for Dr.Chadha
