After spending many years in graphic design plus raising my young children, I decided to re-evaluate my long-term goals. My intention included loving what I do, doing what I love and making a difference.

Envisioning my future, along with much self-reflection, led me to what I instinctively knew. I have always been curious about people, personalities, what makes people tick, and how and why we think, feel and express ourselves the way we do. So it seemed only natural to go back and finish what I’d started at university – Psychology.

I decided to pursue a Masters in Counselling later in life. After graduating, my interests broadened, and I studied with teachers around the world in a wide range of well-established therapeutic frameworks and techniques.

Through further study, working with clients, and doing my own personal work, I gained a true understanding of the interconnectedness of emotions, the mind and the physical body. It became apparent to me that our mental narratives are only a part of what limits us, and that it is crucial to connect with our bodies to facilitate self-awareness and healing. This insight has shaped my approach as an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist with a focus on somatic approaches.

Originally from India, I’ve travelled widely and lived in Singapore, London and Istanbul. My two exceptional children are a blessing and a constant source of inspiration to me. I currently reside in Hong Kong, where I have lived and worked since 2004.

EFT Practitioner and Trainer

I have been passionate about EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) since I learned the therapeutic modality in 2010. Personal practice and sessions with practitioners had such profound outcomes for me in my life that I was motivated to integrate EFT into my practice with clients professionally. After completing Level 3 to become an Accredited Advanced EFT Practitioner, my desire to introduce this sophisticated and effective technique to more people inspired me to become a Trainer. Whether individuals choose to learn from me to help themselves or to become Practitioners, my goal is to spread the knowledge and practice of EFT far and wide.

EFT aligns with my integrative approach to health and well-being. This approach acknowledges that individual concerns extend beyond simply one’s “mental” state and encompasses the entire person, including one’s physiology and the nervous system.”

A love of learning keeps me up to date with the latest research and developments in emotional health and well-being, and I continue to attend courses and conferences internationally.

“About suffering they were never wrong,
The old Masters: how well they understood
Its human position: how it takes place
While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along.”
