My passion lies in creating a safe and nurturing environment for my clients, where they feel heard, valued, and empowered. I believe in the transformative power of counseling and am committed to making a meaningful difference in the lives of those I work with. By fostering resilience and promoting mental well-being, I strive to help my clients overcome their struggles and achieve personal growth, leading to a more fulfilling and balanced life.

 

As a highly qualified and dedicated counseling psychologist with a Master's degree in Counseling Psychology from the University of Madras, I bring a robust academic background and practical experience to the table. My extensive training includes a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Stella Maris College, complemented by hands-on internships at the Institute of Mental Health, Juveniles Observation Home, Annai Teresa Old Age Home, Shrishti Special School, and as an HR Intern with Ifortis Worldwide. These experiences have honed my skills in conducting psychological assessments, formulating case reports, and implementing intervention modules.

 

I have actively engaged in professional development through various workshops and courses, such as Psychological First Aid and Narrative Therapy, and have attended notable conferences and webinars, including the 27th International and 58th National Conference of the Indian Academy of Applied Science on Psychology and Technology. My training in psychological skills and business communications further enhances my ability to deliver effective counseling services.

 

My expertise spans diverse counseling models, enabling me to tailor my approach to meet individual client needs. I am proficient in conducting mental health-related workshops, providing career guidance, and offering comprehensive counseling services in multiple languages, including Tamil, English, and Hindi. With a commitment to fostering workplace well-being and productivity, I leverage my research skills and practical experience to make a positive impact on clients' mental and emotional health, supporting them on their journey to personal growth and resilience.

If you are considering psychotherapy but do not know where to start, a free initial consultation is the perfect first step. It will allow you to explore your options, ask questions, and feel more confident about taking the first step towards your well-being.
