"Ananya is a person in whom you can confide your secrets, worries, and fears - this dark side that we all have. She is filled with love and tenderness and always puts herself in my shoes.
Ananya found solutions for my problems and gave me the key for a new understanding of myself
and my relations with those I love. I'm truly grateful for her."
"I reached out to Ananya for help with some orgasm issues I was having. She guided me on a journey of understanding and awareness about myself that was filled with love, knowledge and beautiful energy. She helped me open my mind and make the connections within myself that have changed my life. I still have much to learn and do but I would encourage anyone who desires to understand their own mind and heart to work with her."

"Ananya is so much more than a coach to me. She is simultaneously guide, teacher, compassionate witness, advocate, enthusiast... Her work with me has allowed me to radically change my relationship to my sexual self and my experience of sex and intimacy. She helped me revisit some old parts of myself that needed love, and gently bring them to the surface where we could love and heal them together. She has supported me in finding a new experience of myself as a loving, gentle, passionate man in the world. She has shown me a path to even greater transformation that lies ahead. Above all, she has helped me learn to love myself."
My time with Ananya was beyond anything I expected. Her combination of smarts with non-judgmental presence had me talking about aspects of my life that I had never imagined discussing with anyone. Every week I looked forward to our sessions. The insights I received were real and lasting. Highly recommended!"

"This experience has been so transforming for me. I have learned so much in the last eight weeks, tools that I can use for a lifetime. I have been struggling with childhood abuse that has carried on into my adulthood and has affected my adult relationships. I have learned how to care for and love myself and how to be kind to myself. I have discovered that it is OK to have boundaries and to lean back and let others take control. My relationships have been a disaster up until now, but I am finally in a healthy relationship, and I am truly enjoying the peace and ease that comes with it. Also, prior to starting the sessions I was having night terrors almost nightly most of my life. These sessions have taught me that rather than struggle and fight the night terrors when they would come on to face them with curiosity and love."
"I was bad at setting boundaries and thus unreliable/tempermental. I had shut myself off from almost all romantic contact with women because I was in so much pain. Ananya helped me recognize that, and gave me tools that I still use. I was carrying around a lot of pain and anger at women who had hurt me, and she helped me process this, have a different relation to the anger, and forgive them and myself. I feel less afraid to take social risks now, because I have more confidence in my ability to assert my needs without getting in over my head and burning bridges. My work and financial life have improved and stabilized substantially. I don't need to date at the moment, but I am no longer terrified. I feel confident that I will be able to assert my needs kindly and politely. I have been able to walk away from several (previously seductive) codependent relationship patterns when they presented themselves."
