  • Why did you choose to become a counsellor?
    The human mind, the way we think and feel always fascinates me. Through books and my academic years I understood the importance of mental health. While growing up, I have seen people around me helping and supporting each other and I too inherited the same. Mental health is as important as physical health and sometime the root stays inside the body, within the mind . To understand and provide effective care , I choose to become a counsellor. The thought that keeps me in this journey is , to provide a safe space which assists people from all backgrounds to grow inside-out.
  • What excites you about your work as a counsellor?
    Meeting individuals with stories of hope, struggle and freedom. Small moment of shared joy and weep, and moments of celebrations with them keeps me going. Sometimes a little Thank you for hearing me today also reminds me of the role I play in their lives.
  • What do you hope for your clients to experience after their first session with you?
    Understanding of what is therapy and how it looks like. I hope to build a collaborative and non judgemental space , where they feel heard and secure enough to share further and grow.
  • What would you wish to tell a client who is thinking about seeking counselling?
    Therapy journey is no one fit for all, it varies and more importantly it is a collaborative space. It is a contained relationship that work towards healing different parts of self. And healing comes with its own shape and size. In the end it like a roller coaster where all emotions are invited.
  • Describe the relationship that you would wish to build with your client in counselling.
    I wish the relationship to be safe and non judgemental , where a person feel comfortable to express thoughts and feelings, and we further dive together in their journey of healing.
  • In your counselling work so far, what has been your greatest learning from your clients?
    The stories of resilience and finding a part of self and rebuild the part with care and support. Something can be too small to someone however for someone else it can be their big part of life. Understanding and seeing it in client’s everyday journey has been a wonderful learning for me.
  • What are some of your strengths as a counsellor that you value and appreciate?
    I am reliable and always keen to learn things . I keep learning and growing in the practice from people I work with , through supervision and therapy. I have worked with diverse people and didn’t restricted myself to take up new skills and opportunities which I do appreciate within me.
  • What are some of the things you like to do in your free time?
    I like to read ( mostly non fiction ) , watch series and movies. I do enjoy coffee and random life conversation or sharing memes with friends. I do love to plan mini trips and collect postcards.
  • What are the areas of concern you address in counselling? Do you work with specific populations?
    I work with adults , couples and families . In past I have worked with children too. The areas of concerns I address in counselling are emotional distress and anxiety , relationship concerns and life changes , trauma and impact of trauma , grief and loss , along with self awareness and work life balance.
  • What is the therapeutic approach you use? How would you describe it to someone who wants to consult you for therapy?
    During sessions, I bring a trauma sensitive lens and systemic lens , addresses factors that impacts a person’s understanding of self and relationships. An eclectic approach further allows some of the effective approaches to assist client’s needs and help in interventions such as person-centered therapy, cognitive behavioural techniques, emotional-focused therapy , and narrative practices- aim to separate the individual from the problem . I personally believe in body work and introduces play and art too as modalities to connect with mind and body.
  • How do you make your therapeutic practice a safe and affirmative space for queer and trans* folx?
    I share my opinions and advocate for queer and trans folx mental health via different platforms. To work ethical and with adequate knowledge I have taken courses and keep reading to provide a safe space to people I work. My pervious work experiences also assisted me to bring affirmative work with queer and trans folx.
