It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness
You cannot do it all on your own. I believe that it is not healthy to burden yourself emotionally. Friends and family often act as our vents but a counsellor helps in a different way. Being a complete stranger, a counsellor offers an unbiased perspective and allows a safe environment to untangle the most feared and uncomfortable feelings that occupy a space within you. We all have blind spots and counselling acts as a mirror to help you assess yourself better.
I loved studying psychology since my school days. Little did I know that the countless life struggles and an inquisitive mind would bring me to choosing this ever-growing and fulfilling career of becoming a Counselling psychologist. As a part of my Masters programme, I had my first experience of sitting on the other side of the chair. Even though anxiety provoking and uncertain initially, it transformed me as a person. This propelled me to pursue a career in this helping profession.
Words of comfort carefully administered are the oldest therapy known to man. I am committed to providing a trusted and containing therapeutic alliance that encourages people to discover their unique strengths and personal meanings in life.
My niche areas of interest are couples, marriage and families. Knowing a marriage was saved, a self-harm averted and a relationship strengthened are the most enthralling and satisfying feelings of the work I do.
I feel equally fulfilled when I work on self-improvement concerns like battling negative tendencies that bring us down or dealing with traumas of past that change us in ways unknown to us.
There are certain things which bring me joy and lift my spirits when I am feeling low. I love reading books, I have been a professional dancer; dancing offers me a good meditative channel of releasing the disturbing thoughts.
Also, being an avid baker I sometimes get enough time to reflect over the feelings that bring me down as I get lost in the chore of breaking the eggs in the bowl to seeing the cake rise. Working out and playing sports are some other ways which help me recoup the mental energy.
