I always felt that we need to talk more about mental health and that narratives of emotional well being, psychosocial concerns, individual, relational or familial concerns deserve some professional attention
I would explore their expectations and discuss what is possible through therapy. I would also like my clients to know their rights of letting me know if they find anything that I say or do hurtful or offensive. I would like to explore their myths and misconceptions and clarify them and let them know about the scope and limitations of therapy.
I look at us as collaborators journeying together into their world and looking at ways in which we can find spaces that are safe, where we recollect their strengths and find out methods of navigating difficult situations together.
I use an eclectic model of therapy. I integrate different psychotherapeutic approaches that focus on the client’s strengths and resources, on the emotional landscape of the client and on thoughts. I work through a stance of a curious collaborator who wants to understand what the client is going through and look at the discourses and nuances around it and explore ways to manage the difficultly.
Small acts of showing allyship - transflag or badge during sessions.
Ask pronouns to all clients.
Let them actively know it’s a safe space and provide them with the space to let me know if they feel otherwise.
Advocate for clients in familial spaces or medical spaces too
I acknowledge my own cis het privilege and let my clients know that while I may put all efforts I may make mistakes and I will always be accountable for them.
The Quote Ipsita Resonates With
My centeredness is in direct proportion of the danger my client is in
