Testimonials

"There’s a lot of counsellors/ therapists out there that do the bare minimum; they listen, they give feedback or advice. But Manpreet goes WAY above and beyond that!! She creates a safe, judgement-free space where it's easy to be honest and open. She educates you on mental health in an easy-to-understand way so you can understand the science behind your mental health struggles. She provides amazing resources so you can continue working on your mental health even when you’re not at an appointment. She’s super flexible and receptive to your needs. Also If you are a part of the Punjabi/South Asian community, she is culturally sensitive to your experiences which is amazing and super hard to find! Overall, she is an amazing, out-of-this world counsellor. You can also tell that she’s just a caring, kind, and awesome person in general too. I could straight up give a bajillion stars if I could !!!"

"Since I've been seeing Manpreet I feel like there is a progress going on in my life because before I was depressed and sad, but when I met Manpreet she helped me a lot helped me dearly I highly recommend."

"I feel great when I leave there. Emotionally drained, heavy, full, but great."

"A few months ago, my mental health declined incredibly after getting into a car accident. I started seeing Manpreet and things slowly started getting better. Her style of support is very empowering and insightful. Not only has she supported me, but she's taught me a lot of skills to use in my day to day life making my life 10 times better. She's amazing. I can confidently say she has helped me learn about myself quite a bit and my mental health has gotten a lot better, and continues to after every session I have with her."

"Manpreet has helped me tremendously over the past couple of months. She has provided me with valuable support, guidance, and strategies and most importantly understanding during my most vulnerable times.

She truly cares about your emotional well-being and utilizes a variety of different therapies to help you overcome your issues. I have noticed a positive improvement in my emotional and mental health, as a result of therapy with Manpreet."

"I've been going to Revival Counselling for almost 2 months now and it's been great. I got super comfortable with Manpreet and her space within 2 sessions and she made me feel very comfortable. I was able to see results after 3 sessions. I started having an open and positive mindset, I've started thinking about my emotions and why I feel a certain way. I've felt very guilty during certain situations which allowed people who were close to me treat me a certain way and made me feel a certain way but, after a few sessions with Manpreet I was able to stand up for myself and not feel guilty about certain decisions I made because someone wasn't happy with it. Overall, I recommend going to Manpreet. Even though I'm in a better place now and seeing great results, I continue seeing her once a week to focus on my mental health."

"There's really not much I can say about Manpreet in regards to constructive feedback. I wish I had met her much earlier on because she really changed the way I thought about therapy and counselors. It's been an amazing and of course at times hard experience but she is very comforting and not once have I felt like I am going through my struggles alone. I've enjoyed our video appointments, and somehow she makes me feel comfortable in my own skin.

The way Manpreet carries herself in sessions makes me feel like I'm talking to a friend, someone I've known for long and can trust. Not only have I noticed the positive differences she's made in my life but so have others around me."

"I absolutely recommend Revival Counselling. I am finally making real progress and feeling more and more like myself. She creates a safe and comfortable space (even during Covid) for everyone and has been helping me with EMDR therapy, and just genuinely being kind and validating. It's been incredibly helpful for the short time I've been seeing her."

"Manpreet is genuine and easy to trust. She creates a welcoming environment which makes it easy to connect with her. I highly recommend her!"

"Manpreet is always so gentle and kind, pushes you just enough out of your comfort zone to get to the root of something, but is always willing to take a step back if needed."

"Manpreet is a phenomenal thought partner and I am grateful that she is a part of my journey."

"So comfortable with Manpreet, we clicked instantly and the EMDR sessions are well worth it.  Would highly recommend!"

"I was struggling to find a counsellor near me and I was tired of talk therapy.  Having Manpreet as my counsellor has been amazing.  We have been doing EMDR and it's been super successful and amazing.  I'm so glad to have Manpreet as a counsellor, and I'm glad she's supporting me on this healing journey."
