In the year 2007 I completed my BACP accredited Post-Graduate Diploma in Counselling from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Prior to this I had finished my under-graduation in Psychology and received a Post Graduate Diploma in Educational Psychology, from the University of Pune, India.
My diplomas through internships gave me a lot of practical, hands on time to apply that knowledge to real life people.I worked at a Women’s Mental Health organization called Saheliya in Edinburgh. During my time in Saheliya I counselled women that suffered from domestic and racial abuse. As a part of my internship, I also worked as a student counsellor at the Glasgow Caledonian University. Post this I returned to India and continued to work as a counsellor in various educational and non-educational organizations situated in Mumbai. My past clients expressed that I was able to create a comfortable space for them to talk about their anxieties, concerns and fears.
The cornerstone approach to my coaching and counselling practice is helping clients empower themselves to find their own solutions, indulge in self-reflection and get a better understanding of their own emotional world. I have been trained in a variety of treatment modalities, and my approach to counselling incorporates them all, ultimately to create a treatment that works best for the individual client. Depending on my client’s struggles and goals, I may combine person centered approach, cognitive behavioral, art, music & sound therapies or meditative and relaxation based interventions. I focus on building a warm and a respectful relationship with my clients, which I believe becomes the basic foundation of any therapeutic process.
Practising in Berlin
I recently moved to Berlin and I’m looking forward to a new beginning in this wonderful city! Through my 9 years of working as a counsellor I have had the opportunity of working with an array of challenges that my clients bring to the table. For me it is crucial that I create a safe, trustful and open environment for my clients during therapy. I wholeheartedly believe in the power of healing through counselling and would be delighted to walk alongside you as you move forward towards achieving your personal goals.
