Most people during their lifetime come across situations in life which can be overwhelming, fearful, and disappointing. Based on my own personal journey, I can say with confidence that it is during such times that it can be hugely helpful to speak to a counsellor.
However, seeking counselling for some can be scary because it may appear to them that going to a counsellor means something is wrong with them. Also, sharing intimate details of personal life problems with a counsellor, requires a high level of trust.
Therefore, I offer my clients a non-judgemental, safe, respectful and compassionate space, where they can share their precious stories, emotions, thoughts, pains and sufferings to rediscover their choices, enhance their self-awareness, learn to regulate their emotions and transform their minds to rewrite or reinvigorate their relationships and their life stories with new meanings.
If you are experiencing challenges in your life which you don’t want, or if things are upsetting you or causing anxiety, fear, insecurity etc. I can offer help to you to find a way forward.
If you are experiencing relationship challenges, constant communication breakdowns, or if unhelpful bickering is taking away your peace I can offer help to you to re-discover a way forward in your relationship.
I use a combination of counselling modalities that incorporates narrative, CBT and person-centred therapies. I work with the hope that my clients will rediscover their values, their self-worth, and their path in life, which may have got lost amidst everything happening in their life.
When working with couples, I use emotionally focused therapy (EFT) approach. EFT is a researched based approach which endeavours to make the relationships safe and helps couples to become more vulnerable to each other to express their needs without fear while deepening the emotion of love.
I am a male Indian Immigrant who moved to New Zealand in 2003 with my wife and two children. Changing country was hard, it caused me to experience challenges of many social ideas, thoughts, beliefs and opinions, thus bringing many failures, ups and downs in life. But in this process I rediscovered myself and my relationship with my wife and my children and with this world as a whole, This journey has also helped me in learning to understand, respect, and work with people from different cultures. As a result, though my primary work life has been in corporate world, I have become a trained counsellor, and counselling has become my passion and life.
With more than 4 years in counselling practice, I especially enjoy working with individuals, couples, and immigrants who are struggling in their relationships or are feeling lost and marginalised.
I can also offer counselling support to individuals who are experiencing workplace challenges.
I have my own counselling practice and also do part-time counselling work for an organisation that is especially focused on helping men who come from a domestic violence background.
