I was quite nervous before my treatment but Dr Arghya Sarkhel immediately put me at ease. An extremely knowledgable and most importantly, enthusiastic towards TMS which is a fairly new treatment. Not only does the doctor explain everything clearly at the time he also does follow ups to check everything is going in the right direction. I have always struggled to find the correct and understanding person but I think I have now found someone I can easily communicate with and rely on. Thank you

It’s been great seeing him since the last four months. He is very patient and understanding. He tries reaching to the core of every problem and comes up with ideal solutions. The counselling sessions, coupled with the medication and rTMS therapy greatly benefited me in my journey of fighting depression. I am currently writing about my experience sitting on the rTMS chair. It’s an absolute painless and non-invasive technique and you can relax, listen to music or even use your phone during the treatment. The results are visible in a couple of weeks. Overall, I had a great experience at living mind.

I saw Dr Sarkhel for depression and a psychotic episode and was treated with RTMS and medication. He was very knowledgeable as well as kind and explained everything to me really well. He was there for me at a point of crisis as well persistent depression. I have now been stable and happy for almost six months after feeling like I would probably be depressed for the rest of my life. He went out of his way to help me in a time of need and was very calming and reassuring. I can't recommend him enough!

Dr Sarkhel is a thorough and compassionate medical practitioner. When it comes to rTMS treatments his method of consolidating a full weeks course of treatments of the weekend is extremely convenient. I’ve had rTMS treatments elsewhere when I’ve needed to go to the each day of the week for 1 hour a day, Dr Sarkhel’s treatment regime is as effective, if not more-so, than in the past ... but the connivence factor is much more suitable to my lifestyle with his style & approach

Dr Arghya Sarkhel

Thank you for your valuable feedback! I am glad you found our integrated rTMS not only clinically effective but also the schedule was convenient and least disruptive in your work and other social commitments.

Superb experience from start to finish. I was impressed with Dr Sarkhel’s initial responsiveness to my query and informative approach in regard to the questions I had. He clearly knows his stuff but adds a very human touch by taking time to explain things and I was also impressed by how accommodating his practice was in scheduling my treatments. You feel taken care of.

rTMS has been a life changing experience for me. I've been suffering from recurring majir depression for more than 20 years and before the treatment I was on 3 different antidepressants. After 2 weeks in the treatment I was able to reduce it to only 1! In fact I'm writing this seating in the TMS chair!

Dr Arghya Sarkhel

We are so pleased to see this transformation in your mental health with the help of this state of the art drug free intervention i.e rTMS . Moreover, during this treatment, you were able to reduce your medications and currently only on a low dosage compared to three / four psychotropic medications before the rtMS treatment. Thank you for your kind words !

I had a course of Psychiatric treatment with Dr Sarkhel which I can honestly say has changed my outlook on life. Along with the sessions he has introduced me to mindfulness meditation which I enjoy and feel really helps. He is very professional and accommodating with dates and times. I would have no hesitation recommending him to anyone.

Dr Arghya Sarkhel from Living Mind made me feel very comfortable, from our first consultation he very warmly allowed me to open up and discuss my struggles with several episodes of depression in my life as well as the depression I was experiencing prior to TMS. Dr Sarkhel runs a very professional clinic while also making the experience quite personal and homely. Each session was performed in a very comfortable chair, with combined acupuncture, each session felt very relaxing. However the real shining glory was how quickly TMS and Arghya’s support pulled me out of my depression. I was finally able to separate myself from my negative self-talk, I no longer felt overwhelmed with anxiety. I was able to look at my stress from a third person perspective instead of being engulfed by it and feeling paralyzed. I feel like TMS has brought joy back into my life and it feels as though life is more colourful now. Argyah was flexible fitting around my schedule and being able to have weekend treatments is a great benefit. The TMS had very minimal side effects and felt like a light tapping on my head where the magnets are targeted. But after each session I started to notice a cumulative increase in happiness. I would highly recommend Living Mind’s TMS for anyone who is experiencing anxiety/depression. I feel it has been a life changing experience.

I am the mother of a patient that Dr Sarkhel has been treating for a few months. I have also on one occasion been present for a joint appointment regarding my daughter’s care. In my opinion Dr Sarkhel is a highly skilled psychiatrist and is treating my daughter professionally and sensitively as is needed by the situation. He has always been available when we have needed to contact him regarding her treatment. I highly recommend him to friends and acquaintances.

Dr Sarkhel is the most experienced most knowledgable professional I have ever worked with. He has done in several weeks what most Drs councillors and mental health workers have all failed to do collectively in over 10 years of being passed from pillar to post by the NHS. He cares he takes time and he follows s through thoroughly as a Dr should. Sadly with mental health if you don’t have private care and someone like Dr Sarkhel then living could simply be impossible!!!

I have been receiving treatment from Dr Arghya Sarkhel at Living mind for the past six months and can honestly say that I feel the process has been life-changing for me. I have a history of experience of treatment with counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists and have received a variety of therapies in the past. During the past year I have found Dr Sarkhel’s combined approach of psychotherapy, mindfulness and acupuncture has profoundly impacted my mental health and wellbeing. Aside from the talking therapies facilitating my coping processes for anxiety and depression, I find the mindfulness approach and acupuncture have influenced my overall well being in such a positive way. This has also enabled me more progress with the more difficult but important psychoanalytical work. I have found Dr Sarkhel very gentle and non-judgmental which has made the whole treatment so successful.
