You can make yourself comfortable before the session and collect your thoughts over a cup of your favorite beverage. In here, we offer you the best of both worlds – an empathetic listening ear along with the expertise of professional opinion.
Due to covid-19, we are unable to offer sessions at our center. All appointments have been indefinately shifted to an online mode.

Our Working Style
Here’s how we help you untangle…
What is our approach to Psychotherapy?
We believe that therapy has to be tailored to meet the requirements of the client. Though we lean towards a non-clinical and positive psychology approach, we do not shy away from recommending a clinical intervention if we assess it’s requirement for the client’s progress.
What type of therapy do we practice?
We follow the eclectic model of counselling. This means that we combine the best tools and techniques from various therapies to create a customized plan for your needs. The therapies we borrow from are – Person-Centered Therapy, Mindfulness, CBT, REBT, SFBT & ACT. We prefer this model to a single-therapy approach.
What is the essence of each type of therapy?
Below is a quick brief of each of the therapies we follow –
Person- Centered Therapy – We help the client to tap into their own innate potential to heal and grow by creating a supportive environment of genuineness, empathy & unconditional positive regard.
Mindfulness – Mindfulness is the art of living with awareness by purposely focusing your attention on the present moment, and accepting it without judgment. This is a popular and scientific tool which has many proven benefits.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) – Probably the most well-know type of psychotherapy, it helps you understand the connection between your thoughts, feelings & behavior and how changing one can influence the others. Also helps you identify & overcome unhelpful thinking patterns.
Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) – Emphasizes the development of rational thinking and healthy beliefs for healthy emotional expression and behavior.
Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) – Quick form of therapy that skips analyzing problems and past life events. It instead concentrates on finding solutions in the present time to find quicker resolution of one’s problems
Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) – A newer form of CBT that also integrates mindfulness.
How do we prioritize our clients?
The most important offering a therapist makes to their client is their full attention. And it is not humanly possible to offer this if your therapist has been in back to back sessions the whole day. We therefore have a strict policy of seeing only 5 clients per day. This way we are fresh and fully available to our last client as much as we are to our first. We also prioritize our own self care, so that we avoid burn-out, and stay with you as co-passengers in this journey of self development
Which ethical guidelines do we follow?
We follow the Ethical Framework for Counselling Professionals – 2018 as prescribed by BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)
How do we solve your problem?
We do not solve your problem. That is your job to do.
However, we do help you to –
Identify your blind spots
Gain clarity of thought
Offer you a safe space to express your emotions
Teach you coping skills
Enable you to view your problem from a different perspective
Form goals and move towards them
Break or create habits
Overcome unhelpful thinking patterns
and this will eventually help YOU solve your problems by yourself.
What are somethings a client cannot expect from us?
Do not expect any ‘quick fix’, ‘instant solution’ or ‘magical advice’ that will make your problem disappear or give you immediate relief from pain or hurt. We also do not give lectures, tell you what is right/wrong or tell you what decisions to take with your life.
