My Approach to Helping
I have over two decades of experience in therapy and research, working with adolescents and adults to collaboratively resolve a wide range of issues. I believe the decision to seek help is a powerful early step in overcoming one’s difficulties. I offer my clients a safe space to talk, explore and unpack underlying factors contributing to their issues, identify goals for change, and work towards that change. My approach to helping clients is defined by their needs and expectations. Therapy is a collaborative process between the client and the therapist, and while commitment on the part of the client is critical for progress, it must be matched with commitment on the part of the therapist, and I ensure I offer this to every client.
My clinical experience spans over two decades of working in a variety of settings with a wide range of psychological and psychiatric issues. I completed my initial training in psychology in India and moved to the UK and then the US to specialise in the field of counselling. I hold an undergraduate degree in Psychology and two postgraduate degrees in Applied Psychology and Counselling Psychology. In addition to my clinical work, I have been extensively involved in the field of global mental health research on projects funded by Harvard University and London School go Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. I have multiple publications in international journal and I have co-authored a book on Depression. I blend my expertise from varied experiences to offer a comprehensive experience to each client who seeks help.
