The desire to help people, combined with an interest in Psychology, made me shift my career from IT to Counselling. I have been practicing since 2014, counselling individuals, children, couples, families and people with disabilities. My experience also involves counselling employees in organizations, addressing their emotional, psychological and relationship difficulties.
Going through therapy/counselling is not easy. When clients embark on this journey, I start building a therapeutic relationship by exploring their stories respectfully, listening with an open mind and empathising with their struggles. As the alliance gets stronger, the conversations get deeper unveiling small changes that matter to the client. During this journey, I also encourage feedback regarding the therapy process and its helpfulness which would help me to alter my work accordingly if it is in the realm of my therapy work.
Prior to counselling, I worked in various positions in IT companies in India and abroad and also enjoyed volunteering as an educator.
