RITU JAISWAL

RITU JAISWAL
Mental Health Counsellor & Narrative Therapist



Education: PGD in Counselling, MA in Counselling Psychology (ongoing)

Experience: Working as a Mental Health Counsellor since 2017

Area of Interest: Young adults

About Me: Hi, I am Ritu, I am a Mental Health Counsellor and Narrative Practitioner at Mansitherapy. A few lines from Lori’s book that really resonated with my approach to the work I do-I am a card-carrying member of the human race, with my own set of vulnerabilities; longings and insecurities; and my own history. I come to work as myself. I look at the therapy room as a mirrored room, where we are the mirrors, reflecting the mirrors, showing one another what we can’t see yet.
Apart from being a therapist, I am a mother to a 13 year old, I am a fitness enthusiast, I love traveling, I enjoy reading, listening to music and watching TV.
Snehal Saraf

Snehal Saraf
Psychotherapist & Counselling Psychologist



Education: Masters in Counselling Psychology from Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai

Experience: 4 years

Areas of Interest: I mostly work with Younger and older Adults, Couples and Families who are dealing with the following- Complex Trauma; Depression; Anxiety and its spectrum (eg- OCD); Stress; Life Transitioning Phases; Family and Relationship Conflict; Self Concept; Value Clarification & accessing Higher Self; Sexuality.

About Me: Therapy is not a 'Treatment/Cure' rather it is an ongoing process of 'Healing' which occurs with greater Self Integration- Acceptance, Compassion, Forgiveness and Responsibility towards oneself. I help in fostering these by drawing from spiritual practices such as Buddhism along with a pool of eclectic modalities; Mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Inner Child Healing, Narrative Therapy and Existential Therapy.
They say there is a method in madness; order in chaos and along the same vein, I believe there is empowerment in vulnerability. I am here to hold space for human fragility and flexibility; co-create multiple realities in the realm of possibilities and thereby, facilitate a new lease of life.
When out of the shoes of a therapist, I will be found reading, Latin dancing or dabbling pen on paper.

Education: MSc in Counselling Psychology (Christ University, Bangalore)

Experience: I have been working in the field of mental health for 3 years now.

Areas of Interest: My area of interest is to work with young adults and older adults, encompassing issues like but not limited to depression, various forms of anxiety, overthinking, self-exploration, existential crises, relationship issues, trauma, understanding, regulating and processing feelings, stress and anger management.

I use an eclectic model in therapy so I can tailor it to the needs of the clients allowing a free flow, comprising various orientations such as CBT, Narrative Practices, Trauma-informed therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Inner child work, Mindfulness and Presence oriented psychotherapy.

About Me: “Have patience with everything unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.” - Rainer Maria Rilke. Very few quotes do greater justice to my perception of the therapeutic journey. I strive to create a safe space for my clients to explore and express their issues and feelings without any judgements and labels. This enables them to embark on a journey of healing by being more aware and accepting of themselves. My role as their therapist is to help them on this voyage towards the self with acceptance and accountability, as a collaborative co-passenger.

It also comprises accompanying my clients as they learn to navigate through difficult situations in life by harnessing their inner wisdom and compassion.

I truly believe it is very important for each and every one of us to hold on to our humanness and create enough room within ourselves to accommodate the different parts of ourselves which may even be in conflict with each other at times. I am and will always be grateful to therapy for giving me the privilege of meeting so many people and getting to be a part of their journeys. Watching sunsets, reading books, writing, travelling, and running are a few of my favourite things.
