Hello, I am Anitha, Counselling Psychologist.
I welcome you to my work!
'The Mind Body Foundation - Counselling Center' is my private practice where I offer consultations.
With the aim to contribute effectively in the field of mental health, I got qualified with a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology from CHRIST (Deemed to be University), Bengaluru. Along with this, I hold two additional certifications in Attachment Theory (UK) and Somatic Therapy (USA).
I strongly believe in the importance of Mental Health for an individual’s holistic well-being.
I offer therapy for Individuals above 21 years of age. I primarily work with individuals who are looking to navigate life's challenges such as - struggling with mental health issues, feeling stuck, overwhelmed, grief, adapting to changes in life, grief, complex ptsd, improving wellness, overthinking, self-esteem/self-confidence issues, mild anxiety and mild depression. Since 2018, I’ve helped my clients break through the obstacles that held them back in their lives.
I invite you to be an active participant in helping me understand you and your concerns.
About Me: About Me
Over the years, my working style has evolved to look at the multitudes people carry. I approach my work through a trauma-informed lens which allows me understand people in the context of their lifes.
In my practice, I take an integrative approach to help my clients untangle their life problems rooted in Thoughts, Behaviors, and Emotions.
Some of the therapies I use in my work are :
Trauma-informed, Attachment theory, Relational Approach, Depth-oriented, and Somatic therapy
Trauma-informed - Understanding struggles of the individual in the context (micro & macro systems) of their lived experiences - wounds encountered and support available, and how it has impacted the nervous system. Facilitating change in a sensitive manner to resist re-traumatization.
Attachment Theory and Relational approach - Looking at the quality of relationships one has experienced in their life. Exploring how these experiences have left imprints that continue to influence one’s relationship with themselves & others.
Depth-oriented - This involves exploring the unconscious and bringing to light parts of the self that have been hidden and integrating them over time.
Somatic therapy - Working at a body and nervous system level to help understand and navigate imprints of experiences of the past that are held in the body. Here we work with the sensations, emotional energy of the past held in the body and empower the client to regulate and move through emotions and sensations.
I believe in ethically sound practice which means I am in regular personal therapy, supervision and engage in continuous education.
