MS - Counseling
A Delhi University gold medallist, relationship therapist and a clinical trauma professional, Deepti has been fortunate enough to have had the chance to study a range of subjects and explore human interactions. Her double masters in Counselling & Psychotherapy, and Geography, gives her work a unique dimension. Deepti’s counselling expertise covers issues related to adolescents, relationships, marriage/family work, and trauma & suicide intervention. She undertook an intensive course in Psychology from The University of Oxford, UK; and specialized courses in relationship & family counseling from The Gottman Institute, USA and in Clinical Trauma Interventions from IATP, USA. She is currently a Member of International Association of Applied Psychology. Her strong passion for understanding the interconnection between human psychology, emotions, the mind works and the space in which we all live, enables her to add the practical approach to her sessions and workshops. A university record holder in Statistics, she has the ability to intermingle the objective and subjective nuances of the most relative human life. She has the strong grasp of gradations of inter-connectivity that primarily govern many parts of how we feel and act in any given space. This understanding of the multiple forces of life at work empowers her every role - be it of a counsellor, a crisis intervention specialist, a colleague, a friend, and that of a human being. She has been actively involved in counselling work focused on adolescents, relationships, marriage and family work, LGBT issues, trauma/crisis intervention and suicide intervention. With over 15 years of training experience, she has successfully conducted training programs for various target groups ranging from private groups to schools teachers to IAS officials and Police Personnel.
I truly recommend Deepti to anyone who is having hard time coping up with life or any issue in life just like I was and it’s hard to believe but within first few sessions, I actually felt better with all the suggestions and talks I had with/from Deepti. She indeed is a very cooperative and understanding doctor and person. I in fact was nervous in the beginning as I have phone sessions but her vibes and energy iso soothing and clear that in no time I felt a very comfortable connection with her and could open up easily:) “Thanks for saving my life” i’d say.
Deepti Ma'am is very understanding and goes straight to the roots of the problem and deal with them practically.
Deepti has been a guiding light and a friend since I started meeting her. She is able to maintain a fine balance between being sympathetic to my feelings and at the same time being giving firm about her opinions. She gives practical and dynamic advise which has truly helped me gain perspective and make some progress. Her caring nature is also evident from that fact that she is willing to hold a session whenever I have a problem.
Deepti has been very understanding and patient of challenges we faced and helped uncover bottlenecks that have been holding us back. It is long journey but great to have some like her you can trust and confide in. Believe it will be a long association with her.
