Therapy is about changing the perception of the problem!
4 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Performance anxiety is universally applicable to a written entrance test as well as a satellite launch.

What this show vividly unravels is, how this is exaggeratedly disastrous for any sport or physical activity, a mere shake of hand, a momentary hesitation could make all the difference.

Irrespective of the stage the pressures shown are universal, be it a schoolyard match, or common OCD like disorder, these issues are prevalent and it is a delight to see Dr. Dani tackle them head on.

Interestingly, it is the personal life of Dr. Dani that actually keeps us hooked to the show.

And, although surprising, I am thankful they extended the show to three seasons. A must-watch for anyone who wants a balance between fun and deep!
