About Me

I am an Indian-Australian counselling psychologist, currently living and working in India. I started my career with suicide counselling, then moved into family mediation and parenting, before finding my niche in trauma and early-life trauma, which is what I specialise in. Majority of my clients are 18+ although I still see families and younger children. I provide in-person consultations in Guwahati (India) & online consultations pan-India and overseas. I'm fluent in English, Hindi, Assamese, and Bengali.
