There are no words to tell you how grateful I am to have you in my life and what an enormous difference you have made. Your kindness, love and support have been invaluable – from the bottom of my heart – thank you.
Female, 36
As an individual who had previously consulted the services of several life coaches/counsellors before being referred to Ralitza through Como Shambhala Singapore, I can attest to her abilities both as a communicator and, more importantly, a great listener. Elementary as those two traits may sound, I believe that they underscore the difference between a client leaving the session with a feeling of despair – or hope.
For me, the first time I spoke with Ralitza was – as cliché as it may sound, a much-needed guiding hand in a difficult phase in my life. Ever clear and transparent with her intent, yet professional in her execution, her advice brought order, calmness, and gradually restored belief in an otherwise chaotic mental state.
For that, I am grateful.
Female, 54

I just wanted to thank you again for everything you have done for me, so many times I think back and I really don't know what I would've done without you. I still have some nights where I can't sleep and I still get a bit scared sometimes but it's nothing compared to before I met you. I tried to go see someone here but it didn't feel right somehow I felt embarrassed rather than comfortable talking which made me miss you even more.
Just wanted to say thank you again for everything, you saved me.
Female, 20
We were finalizing our vows today and we kept talking of you. How important your role was and is in our relationship. Thank you for all your help in the past year!
Couple
You have taught me so much, and I can accurately say that the only reason I'm here today is because of you. Without you, I would never have gotten past so many mental blocks and emotional hurdles in the past two years. You are the kindest, most comforting person I know. I cannot stress enough how important our time was together to me, neither can I express how much fun and meaning I found simply in talking to you. I know I didn't always do my OCD homework (sorry!) but the problems you helped me face still allowed me to find so much peace and it is only because of you that I can begin to enjoy life again. You were the catalyst for change in me. Thank you for everything.

It would be hard to emphasize how much you, and our sessions, have meant to me. These past few weeks have been difficult form me but meeting you was one of the greatest things that have come out from it. Whatever we have discussed has kept me feeling heavy – but after speaking to you I always feel light and ready to make the changes I desire. I can’t thank you enough for taking on such a role in my life.
Female, 19
They say there is a time and place for everything, and you were one of the best things in my life for a really long time. You were the first person I could trust in months and I you were one of the best things that ever happened to me. This is not hyperbole. These days, I'm doing a lot better. I've really started to trust my friends more and build relationships and be more involved with people and that was amazing to me. Honestly, if you hadn't been there, I would be dead. But I'm better now. I'm happier. I've been making strides in my OCD and in my happiness. Thank you.
Male, 19
Thank you so much for your help and being there for us. These last two years have been traumatic and your help has been invaluable.

I have been counseling with Ralitza for over a year. I had spoken to another psychologist before but as time passed Ralitza became my go-to person for literally everything I was facing. She has been a true support through really tough times and has never made me feel like it was just her job. She has gone over and beyond every time I have needed her help and I will always be grateful to her for being a part of my journey. Thank you for your support on a really difficult journey. I don’t know what I would do. Thank you.

I would just like to say thank you so much for your help while I was in Singapore. I was definitely on a downward spiral and without your guidance I am not sure where I would be now!
Male, 23
You were right – the Universe did throw all sorts of nice people in my way. It started with you after all. I am very happy that we met and you provided some perspective when the world was plain flat. We blew it up into a colourful beachball again. Thank you for everything.

Thank you super duper much! I still remember the first time a few years ago when I met you when I was completely lost and torn apart...You helped me get from there to where I am now and, most importantly, to where we are now as a couple, as a team. We are always grateful for you.
