As a Psychologist with international exposure, I possess a deep understanding and appreciation for working with individuals from diverse backgrounds. Over the course of more than 10 years as a clinician, I have successfully addressed a wide range of issues across all stages of life, including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, gender identity, school and workplace bullying, adjustment difficulties, infertility, and parenting challenges.
My therapeutic approach primarily draws from Cognitive Therapy, placing emphasis on individuals’ thoughts rather than their actions. Within the framework of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I closely examine the interconnectedness of thoughts, behaviours, and emotions. By targeting and addressing dysfunctional thoughts, I can directly impact emotions and behaviours. Given the fast-paced nature of life, I find value in problem-oriented CBT that focuses on the present moment, encouraging self-reflection and the exploration of alternative perspectives on problems. My goal is to equip individuals with the skills and confidence needed to effectively manage future difficulties. Practical coping skills are prioritized throughout the therapeutic process.
I firmly believe that no problem is too big or too small, and every client, regardless of their background, is unique and equally important. My approach is characterized by a calm and welcoming demeanour, creating a safe space where clients feel at ease. I offer a confidential and non-judgmental environment that allows for the exploration of the issues that have brought individuals to therapy.
I have valuable experience working in telehealth and recognize its benefits. Telehealth provides an opportunity for individuals who may have otherwise been unable to seek treatment to access therapy. Recognizing that therapy can be overwhelming for some clients, telehealth offers a medium through which they can acquire the necessary skills to manage distressing times. Additionally, the flexibility of engaging in therapy from any location makes it a desirable and widely accessible option.
Therapy sessions can be held in English, Punjabi, and Hindi.
