Attendees of the Stress Management workshops have given highly positive feedback. One attendee wrote: ‘Although it was practical, it had depth and I found myself connecting with very deep parts within me and even after the workshop I kept having important realisations about me and my life including past, present and future. It gave me much more than I had hoped for, and I feel the impact will go on beyond reducing stress. Some shifts took place right away, and some are still taking place now.'
Dr Sinha believes in a holistic approach to treatment and emphasises the importance of reducing stress and managing stress to prevent chronic physical and mental illnesses. She respects traditional practices and combines the best of both Eastern Health practice such as Yoga with Western Medicine, which has the latest evidence-based practice.
