I am a COSCA (Counselling and Psychotherapy in Scotland) qualified counsellor and queer-affirmative psychotherapist from India. Through the course of gaining my Masters degree, Counselling Diploma certification and fully accredited professional qualification in counselling and psychotherapy, I had the privilege of working in multiple settings and placements in both the public and private sectors in Edinburgh. I have professionally worked with a diverse range of clients including adolescents, adults, and elders, exploring different kinds of emotional complexities and psychological vulnerabilities

I am also an award-winning qualitative researcher, autoethnographer, workshop and group facilitator, and conference speaker in India, USA, Scotland, and England. My research is mainly around counsellor training, culture, trauma, and lived experience.

As an ethical, reflective, and dedicated practitioner, I firmly believe that therapy should be a safe and supportive space, and am passionate about integrating warmth, compassion, and authenticity into the therapeutic relationships I foster. I aim to provide an empathetic, non-judgmental, and holistic space for my clients, embracing transparency, openness, and vulnerability, welcoming clients from all walks of life.
