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.
