About me

Having completed my Masters in Applied Psychology from Middlesex University, London, I currently work as a Counselling Psychologist at Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS). Previously, I worked as a programme officer and co-ordinating in-charge for 'Koshish' (TISS), a social initiative working on issues of homelessness and destitution. Also, I worked in the UK as an independent researcher. My research paper titled 'British and Indian Perspectives towards Counselling: a quantitaive cross-cultural study' is published in 'Counselling Psychology Quarterly', Taylor & Francis Group publication. To further develop my interest in teaching and research, I freelanced in London for 3 years, as a research consultant and personal academic coach. I feel passionately about working in areas of social-work that would provide me an opportunity to uplift the vulnerable and marginalized groups in society. As a mental health professional, my aim is to deliver good quality work that uplifts individuals and groups with long-lasting benefits. Psychotherapies: Multi-integrative approach to counselling Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Solution-focused therapy I'm also interested in EMDR therapy, Dialectical behabiour therapy (DBT), NLP and Systems Approach (Family therapy). My research interests are attitudes, self-fullfilling prophecies, self compassion, mindfulness, worthiness, wholehearted living and emotional vulnerabilities.
