When faced with difficult situations in my life, it was through the Arts, working with my body and immersing myself in nature that I repeatedly found solace and meaning. To be able to share these joyful, but deeply transformative practises effectively with my clients, I added a strong therapeutic foundation to my skill set.

A session with me through Stillpoint Spaces Berlin can include art making, breathing techniques, body meditations or a combination of all three. These practices help us to connect quite immediately to the elusive treasures of the subconscious and can help us to understand and transform the current experiences we are having - simply put, making our lives richer.

My intention is to offer a creative, nurturing space to support my clients’ growth at their very own rhythm and timbre. To help me provide such a space, I continue to further my own training and practices of self-reflection.

I offer my counselling services at Stillpoint Spaces Berlin and in my private practice in Potsdam - when appropriate, also outdoors. I work both in English and in German, on a one-to-one basis and in groups.

I was born in India and spent many formative years in Germany. Having grown up between continents and cultures, my search has always been to integrate worlds - so the rifts within me, too, may be healed. This has taken me on a continual learning path which spans from neuroscience to art, eastern spirituality to western psychotherapy, ancient ritualistic tradition to modern clinical practice.

I believe that psychological health confers the ability to hold our contradictions and multitudes in harmony. I draw on the many resources within me to offer my clients a creative, lively approach to support their healing and thus, integrate the worlds within them.

Privately, I can typically be found roaming the forests of Brandenburg with my dog and a sketchbook.
