My skills and my experiences in life have made me an empathetic person who understands different perspectives. As I went through my own journey of healing and gained more skills about the field, I was amazed by the potential for change in human beings when they are in supportive environments. This is what inspired me to start studying to become a therapist. My resolve grew stronger as I realized that the number of therapists to client ratio in India is very large and I wanted to do my bit to fill this gap.
Therapy is a learning and unlearning process and thus based on needs and intensity of experiences, everyone may take a while to see some shift and movement. If you feel safe and comfortable with your therapist, and ready for the process, do attend a few sessions to get a sense of how therapy may work for you.
It is very important to give therapy a go. It is important that the therapist and client fit well together and thus, if therapy does not work with one therapist, please reach out to another one!
You may think that it is the same as talking to a friend and that is not the case. Therapy is different than friendship as the focus is on your well-being. It is also a professional, structured relationship which is aimed at improving your mental health.
Even though therapy can be a long-term process, the aim of therapy is not to make you dependent on it. Rather therapy aims to empower you to work through/deal with/manage your concerns.
The collaborative nature of the relationship is important to me. I ask for feedback at different points in therapy, set the goals of therapy collaboratively with the client and co-create the meaning of client’s experiences with them. see therapy as a journey that the client and I undertake to help the client heal and recover. This journey is led by the client while I see the therapist to be a co-traveler in this journey helping the client build skills and provide different perspectives.
The main areas of my expertise include trauma, anxiety, depression, body image-related concerns, relationship issues, and concerns related to gender and sexual orientation identity. I mainly work with people in the age range of 15-35 years. I work with people from diverse backgrounds and identities.
My approach to therapy is queer-affirmative, trauma-informed and feminist. This means that my therapy practice recognizes and helps clients to question and deconstruct the dominant social ideas and norms while also working on the impact it may have on the individual. My approach also focuses on seeing the clients as resourceful, and having the knowledge to work through their own concerns with therapeutic support and conversations. My practice also is client-centered and trauma-informed wherein the process does not emphasize on getting information from the client but trusting the client to share whatever they feel comfortable to share in the process. There is gentle exploration of themes and concerns to help understand the concerns better. Emotional safety is a priority in my practice.
I make sure to use inclusive language, ask for pronouns and state mine, as well as educate myself on queer and trans* people’s experiences and concerns. I ensure to regularly engage with educational and training material to unlearn my own biases and make my practice a safe and inclusive space.
