I have a B.A. and M.A. in psychology (specializing in clinical psychology) from Delhi University. I obtained further training in the United Kingdom and have a post-graduate certificate in family therapy from the Institute of Psychiatry, King's College, London. I have worked in many schools since then as a school counsellor and further completed a course titled "Management of Learning Disabilities" at the S.N.D.T University, Mumbai. I have been exposed to different cultures within the country and around the world through my travel. This has given me a better appreciation of different cultures and an openness to very different backgrounds and experiences. I have been in private practice since 2004 and am currently based in Bangalore. I live with my husband and two children.
As a psychotherapist, I offer sessional work with individuals, couples and families. I believe in systemic thinking, viewing difficulties as being maintained by interactional sequences and use this framework in therapy. I follow the family therapy models of narrative, solution- focused and trans-generational perspectives. I am also informed and influenced by the cognitive behaviour and psychodynamic therapeutic traditions. I follow a collaborative and multi-disciplinary approach in my work. I address issues of gender, alternative sexualities and differently-abled individuals.
