A little about me…
After having spent 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 on a global scale. Envisioning my future along with much self-reflection led me to what I instinctively knew. Having always been curious about people, personalities, what makes people tick, how and why we think and feel and express ourselves the way we do, 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. It became apparent to me that our mental narratives are only a part of what limits us. Through various trainings I gained a true understanding of the interconnectedness of emotions, the mind and the physical body. This informs my current practice as an integrative counsellor.
Passionate about EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) since I first learned the technique in 2010, I integrated it into my practice but also into my life so completely that I was inspired to complete my Leve 3 as an EFT Practitioner, then go on to become an EFT Trainer. Going deep with EFT has taught me what it means to stay with one thing, what it means to ride the discomfort of staying, the benefits of attunement, deep learning and the rewards of the journey toward mastery.
An enthusiasm for learning helps me to keep up to date with the latest research and developments in emotional health and well-being, and I continue to attend international workshops and conferences.
Having worked with hundreds of people over the years, I have immense admiration and respect for every single client and student who has come forward in strength and courage with the willingness to reflect on themselves.
Originally from India, I’ve travelled widely and lived in Singapore, London and Istanbul. My two amazing children are a constant source of inspiration to me. I currently reside in Hong Kong, where I have lived and worked since 2004.
“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”
– W.H. Auden
