Sheetal:(Clinical Psychology) Her practice in the field of counselling involves the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) & Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT) as active-directive approaches and “Robert Carkhuff” as the base to her human centric approach.

“You don’t choose Psychology, It comes to you” is what I had always believed for myself. As a kid, I always wanted to be a lawyer seeing my grandfather and father. But witnessing my mother battle Clinical Depression, it left a burning desire in me to understand her. It drove me to understand the nuances of the working of the “human mind” and as an empath it came naturally to me to understand people.
Although using the psychotherapeutic approach to understand where the person is coming from, I tend to be inclined more towards the Humanistic approach, as Scott Peck says about Love – “that it is the human involvement, struggle and willingness of the therapist to nurture the client’s growth which makes psychotherapy to be effective. I have come to experience that it is not the magical words or techniques which make a good therapist, but to be truly able to love and understand human emotions makes an effective counselor.
The idea behind “my breakthrough” was to make affordable and effective counselling available to people who are suffering in silence, it is about them being facilitated and bring about an awareness within themselves to reach an attainable goal. Together, let’s breakthrough and give our best 🙂
