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.
