I have always been keen on listening to people and noticing patterns, trying to understand where this must come from for them, and sitting with them through their expression and silences. As a teen, I noticed some of these things coming to me naturally, and was thrilled about the idea that I can actually put these skills to use after adequate training and practice.
I am really grateful to the clients for trusting me enough to hold space for them to share, express, and be whatever they want to, in this therapeutic setting. I am honoured to be a part of their journeys where they so beautifully try to unlearn and re-learn, reflect, embrace themselves, and tap into the strength and compassion they hold within.
I hope for them to know that this is a safe space, their own space, where they can emotionally open themselves up at any pace they like. There will be no force to share, work through, or process anything they don’t feel ready for. They can communicate clearly if anything doesn’t work for them and we can together find ways to help them as best as possible.
I think you are very courageous to be taking this step for yourself. That shows your willingness to help and support yourself through all that you may be going through.
Therapy is like an investment for your mental health. Mental health is as important as physical health.
It is absolutely okay to seek therapy and does not mean you are weak in anyway. We all go through dark times and phases when it becomes difficult to cope or self-soothe. You deserve all the help and support.
I believe and communicate that the therapy process is a collaborative one where the client and I will navigate through their concerns together. We would also look at safe and supportive spaces for the client outside of the therapy space that help them cope and feel included.
I have learnt that each client has always had an incredible amount of resilience and strength within them. That as a client, taking the first step to seeking therapy needs a lot of courage and shows the willingness and support they are ready to invest in themselves through the therapy process. Also, sometimes a safe space and a secure relationship with a therapist can do wonders for a client.
I work with mental health concerns such as stress, anxiety, depression, relationship concerns, work-life concerns, grief and loss, disordered eating patterns, self- esteem, body image issues and trauma.
I believe in a strength based approach to therapy. That means that the sessions will focus on empowering the client by tapping on their inner strengths and insights. I recognise the fact that each client is a survivor, and not a victim.
I take the effort to educate myself with the help of resources, trainings, and reading materials to better understand the struggles, intersections, and related stigma, of people belonging to the queer community. I also keep my own privelege and assumptions in check. I am mindful of using inclusive language in my sessions with clients, and choose to share my pronouns at the beginning of the session to keep it open to the client if they feel comfortable to share theirs.
