Ever since high school, I was interested in studying the mind and behaviour which is why I chose to study Psychology in college. While pursuing my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology I read books and met people from the field and developed an interest in Counselling. As a child, my interest was always in helping friends and making people feel better and I guess that feeling along with my deep interest in Psychology led me to focus on working as a Counsellor.
As a counsellor, it is our privilege to be a part of someone else’s life, their hopes, aspirations and set backs. Through Counselling, we take a journey along with the other person and in this journey we discover hidden potential which opens up so many possibilities no matter what the obstacles and I find that very exciting.
Life is wonderful at times but it can seem very hard sometimes as well. As human beings we have tremendous resilience and I have had clients who have worked hard and bravely to overcome the difficulties which can sometimes dominate their lives. Sometimes, speaking to someone who listens without any judgement can make a big difference and I would therefore encourage a client to seek help because we all need it sometimes.
My counselling sessions are very collaborative in nature. The focus is on my client and the issues they would like to discuss. I do not believe in giving advice as I am not an expert in someone else’s life. My client would know themselves and their lives better than anyone else. However, using my skills as a Psychotherapist I will work with my client to highlight thoughts, uncover events and bring forth actions that could be taken to overcome issues they are facing.
My clients are the experts of their lives and they are working hard to overcome the difficulties. They need a little patience, support and a non judgemental listening ear to help them overcome the challenges they have come with.
I love travelling and exploring new places. I am also a big foodie and love trying out different cuisines. Reading fiction and non fiction books and watching crime thriller TV series or movies also interest me!
