Why did you choose to become a therapist?

Early on in my career, I discovered about myself that I get the feeling of fulfilment and joy from helping people, which essentially drives me to work every day. While working in the mental health field, I have learned that an enormous amount of people are constantly emotionally struggling and wishing to be heard and valued by someone. Being a psychotherapist allowed me to connect with the people and help them through their difficult life experiences.

What would you like to tell a client who comes to you for therapy?

In the therapy room, I believe in creating a safe space wherein I and the client become active participants in the healing process. Through therapy, I guide the client towards self-awareness, new understanding, relief from symptom/s and help gain inner strength to deal with problems that once appeared hopeless.

What does a first session with you look like?

Our first interaction is mainly to understand your concerns and for both of us to judge if I am a right fit for you as a therapist. To get a sense of your concerns, I would ask you about your present and past experiences that may be remotely connected with your problems and come up with a personalised therapeutic plan for you.

What has been an important learning of being a therapist?

That every person has immense potential for growth, and therapy is a step toward realising one’s potential; therefore, the change ensues

Can you share a quote that resonates with you?

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change” -Carl Rogers
