  • Why did you choose to become a counsellor?
    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.
  • What excites you about your work as a counsellor?
    To witness and get the opportunity to facilitate the learning and unlearning process of my clients is the most exciting part of therapy for me.
  • What do you hope for your clients to experience after their first session with you?
    A sense of comfort, safety, support and hope.
  • What would you wish to tell a client who is thinking about seeking counselling?
    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.
  • Describe the relationship that you would wish to build with your client in counselling.
    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.
  • In your counselling work so far, what has been your greatest learning from your clients?
    I am inspired by my client’s resilience, hope and hard work. I have learnt from them that progress is not linear - it is not about never failing but about continuing despite failing.
  • What are some of your strengths as a counsellor that you value and appreciate?
    Patience, empathy, ability to create a safe space, balancing between being nurturing and challenging, curiosity and eagerness to learn
  • What are some of the things you like to do in your free time?
    Colouring, watching Netflix, cooking, walking in nature
  • What are the areas of concern you address in counselling? Do you work with specific populations?
    I work with clients who experience concerns related to self-worth/self-confidence, interpersonal relationships, boundaries, anxiety, depression, numbness of emotions or difficulty processing emotions. I also work with clients who have concerns in building self-trust, and have body image related concerns as well. My main area of focus is to work with clients who find themselves stuck in certain unhelpful patterns such as perfectionism, codependence, etc. I also help clients navigate non-normative experiences in terms of queerness, neurodivergence, or belonging to any other marginalised group. The typical age range I work with is 15 years to 40 years of age.
  • What is the therapeutic approach you use? How would you describe it to someone who wants to consult you for therapy?
    My therapeutic approach is trauma-focused, which means that I am trained to work with clients’ traumatic experiences and understand the deep and pervasive impact trauma can have in our lives. This means that my practice priories safety (physical and emotional) and thus, equips clients to navigate any overwhelm they may be experiencing. My approach is also postmodern which focuses on the client’s strengths, choice and agency as well as client’s right to shape their narrative about themselves. This also helps clients to build compassion for themselves. Another important aspect of my therapeutic approach is the social justice lens which helps me be aware of the systemic factors that impact an individual’s experience.
  • How do you make your therapeutic practice a safe and affirmative space for queer and trans* folx?
    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.
