Kanusha is a Psychotherapist (Clinical Specialization) who has been practising for over six years now. She has worked with clients across different age groups–children to older adults. At a reputed mental health organization, she worked both as the ‘In-patient’ Psychologist as well as for ‘Out-patients. She worked with children at the Children’s department, and with older adult patients at the Day Care Centre. She has also worked as a Wellness Coach for IT company employees, helping them deal with a wide range of mental health issues. She believes her broad experience so far has deepened her proficiency in dealing with various types of Anxiety-related issues, Mood-related issues, Relationship dynamics, Work-related issues, Personality vulnerabilities, and other issues. Her experience includes conducting workshops/ webinars on various mental health issues. Kanusha has completed a course in therapy for Personality Disorders from the prestigious Beck Institute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy, U.S.A. As for Kanusha’s hobbies, she spends time with her family. She dooes gardening, socialises, and goes on ‘nature’ trips. She finds great solace in reaching out to underprivileged individuals in whatever ways possible. In her rare spare time, she attempts to develop new habits (even a simple thing such as learning to write with her other hand!)

What you can expect from your first session:

I’m excited to bring the ‘Locus of Control’ philosophy to clients! Quite simply, it means–working on factors in our control brings greater personal growth than working on factors that are external. I believe clients can be taught to use their inner strengths. I aim to help them rediscover, build and develop these hidden strengths, so that they are better able to deal with various issues that may arise! I keenly look forward to creating a comfortable therapeutic relationship with my clients.
