I have a natural inclination towards connecting with people, hearing their stories, and understanding their unique experiences. As a curious individual, I find joy in learning about others’ perspectives and experiences. I am interested in channeling this curiosity into the therapeutic space. Additionally, I believe that being a counsellor is a learning experience in itself. In my interactions with clients, I have been inspired by their resilience and ability to navigate life’s challenges with grace. I view the therapeutic relationship as a partnership, where both the client and counsellor contribute equally towards the client’s growth and well-being.
Providing a sense of safety and comfort is paramount in my counselling approach. I want my clients to feel at ease and assured that they are in a non-judgmental and supportive environment. I also recognize that therapy is a process and can be challenging at times, but is equally healthy. I encourage my clients to actively participate in their own healing journey and to communicate openly with me. I also recognize that therapy is not just a one-hour session but a continuous process that extends beyond our time together.
Therapy is accessible to anyone who feels they may benefit from it, and there is no specific criterion for seeking counselling. It is a personal choice, and individuals should not feel ashamed or hesitant to seek support when needed. It is important to recognize that therapy is not a quick fix but rather a journey towards self-discovery and personal growth. The process of therapy is intended to be deep and introspective, helping clients gain a better understanding of themselves, their emotions, and their patterns of behavior.
I understand that the relationship between a therapist and client is a professional one, but I also strive to create an open, candid, and safe environment where clients feel comfortable sharing their concerns with me. I recognize that it can be intimidating for clients to share their personal stories with someone they may have just met, but my goal is to establish a trusting relationship over time. I aim to create a warm and welcoming space for clients to share their thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment and ultimately create a fulfilling environment for the clients.
I empower clients to reach the insights on their own, while I act a catalyst for change. My core strengths as a therapist are active listening, objective empathy, and providing a healthy perspective to help clients navigate their concerns. I prioritize creating a safe and validating space where clients feel heard and understood. When needed, I gently challenge clients without making them feel threatened or judged, to support their growth and progress.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring my creative side through dance and other performing arts. I find that these activities also serve as a form of self-care for me. Additionally, I value spending time with my friends and going on drives to clear my mind.
I specialize in addressing a wide range of everyday mental and emotional concerns, such as anxiety, depression, body image issues, relationship difficulties, self-esteem concerns, family conflicts, anger management, and procrastination. My client base typically includes adolescents and young adults up to their mid-thirties.
My approach involves gaining a comprehensive understanding of each client’s unique context, thought processes, emotions, and behavioral patterns. With this understanding, I create a suitable intervention plan that is designed to address their individual needs.
I approach all my clients with an open mind and without any preconceptions or biases regarding their gender or sexuality. I strive to continually educate myself about a range of queer identities and experiences, in order to better understand my clients’ perspectives and provide them with the support they need.
