Personal Information and Biography

A psychologist with a keen interest in making individuals adapt to their settings better, and unleashing their unique selves. I enjoy dwelling on the whole gamut of the human experience and narrative, and yet challenge patterns of thought, behavior and attitude that bring them down. My experience in the field ranges from working with individuals with psychological disturbances, everyday challenges, families, learning difficulty, work-life balance, marital and couple therapy, children, designing workshops, etc.

I orient myself with an eclectic approach to therapy and techniques, and believe that the pick of techniques should be based on the case so as to do the clients the best. Among techniques, CBT, guided imagery, solution focused therapy and gestalt techniques are often used. I also have the experience of working across mediums of face to face, telephonic and other virtual mediums.
