Life is full of transitions and I am here to support you through them. Whether you are facing a career change, adjusting to a new culture, encountering relationship changes or suffering a loss, I will partner with you to help you find the strength to embrace challenges with confidence and hope. As a registered counsellor, I am deeply committed to helping individuals and couples navigate life’s challenges. My approach is client-centered and tailored to your unique needs, offering a nurturing space for self-exploration, healing and personal growth. In my varied professional experiences, I have had the privilege of working with diverse populations for over 10 years and am committed to providing a safe, non-judgemental space where clients can explore their thoughts and feelings.

A key interest of mine is support for couples in traditional and arranged marriages. Through lived experience I am able to genuinely understand the factors that can impact the relationship, such as navigating cultural and family influence, division of labour, communication, developing trust and intimacy and family planning. I understand the importance of extended family systems in a relationship and work alongside each couple to truly hear their personal experiences, so that we can collaboratively identify and work towards united goals. I also work with couples who are considering starting a family or who may be facing the heartbreak of fertility issues.

Another key area of support that I offer is grief, loss and bereavement counselling, including the loss or termination of a pregnancy. I offer personalised and tailored grief therapy in a safe and comforting space, allowing you to fully express yourself and process the different phases of your grief. I will then work with you to find peace, connection and meaning again, whilst always cherishing that which was lost.

I am also passionate about supporting women in the workplace, who are seeking career guidance and coaching or who are facing workplace challenges. Such challenges may include bullying or discrimination, self-esteem issues, burnout and stress, or seeking to advance their careers into leadership roles. Similarly, I am also passionate about assisting multicultural working professionals with the personal and professional challenges that arise from transitioning into a new workplace and society.

I communicate fluently in both English and Hindi, offering multilingual therapy. I am certified in a range of evidence based therapies,including CBT, ACT, DBT, Narrative Therapy, and Grief Therapy. For couples, I work with the Milan & Bowen Family Systems theories, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT), Collaborative Couples Therapy, Gottman Method, Discernment Counselling and the Developmental Model. These therapies are selected and integrated based on your personal experiences, goals and situations.
