“You are what you believe yourself to be” – Paulo Coelho
I believe that mental health is something quite personal to an individual. Every person has different way of reacting to and dealing with life circumstances. It is crucial for people to understand that they are themselves the agents in their own healing process. I believe that people hold remarkable strength and potential to face challenging life events. My purpose, as a counselling psychologist, lies in acting as a guide and facilitator for individuals to become more aware of their own self and work towards enhancing it. In the process of self-enhancement, I intend to incorporate ideas from different psychotherapeutic approaches such as CBT, person-centered, mindfulness-based and creative arts techniques to name a few. I aim to provide a non-judgemental, empathetic space for individuals to strive towards a positive mental health.
An alumna of University of Delhi, I have a Master’s degree in Psychology (with a specialisation in clinical psychology), in addition to an honours Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. While pursuing my studies and in seeking additional training to enhance my skills, I have had diverse opportunity to observe and work with people in different spaces such as inclusive centers, hospitals, prison, and corporate settings. This has helped me understand the human mind and behaviour more deeply. As a curious and inquisitive individual, I have also successfully completed many projects, published articles, and written a three-part activity guide book series for children with learning disabilities.
