  • Why did you choose to become a counsellor?
    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.
  • What excites you about your work 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.
  • What do you hope for your clients to experience after their first session with you?
    I would hope that my clients feel they are not alone in their struggle and that there is a safe place they can come to where they can share their thoughts, fears and dreams without any judgement.
  • What would you wish to tell a client who is thinking about seeking counselling?
    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.
  • Describe the relationship that you would wish to build with your client in counselling.
    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.
  • In your counselling work so far, what has been your greatest learning from your clients?
    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.
  • What are some of your strengths as a counsellor that you value and appreciate?
    Patience, Empathy, Supportive, Nonjudgmental
  • What are some of the things you like to do in your free time?
    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!
  • What are the areas of concern you address in counselling? Do you work with specific populations?
    I work with persons aged 16 years above. The areas of concerns that I work in addressing are linked to difficulties with mood, anxiety, navigating challenges in the workplace as well as in relationships with friends, partners and family members.
