Hi! I’m Priyanka, one of the counselling psychologists at Gulmohar. I’m passionate about what I do, and seek to make positive mental health impact in our strange and complex world through informed ethical practice and social advocacy.
To me, therapy is an explorative, experiential and collaborative process which can be both challenging and enjoyable! In this process, I seek to meet you where you are, and support you in your journey of healing, self-discovery and growth. I am both fascinated and humbled by the richness of human experience, and deeply value the intimate nature of my work and the relationships I share with the people I work with. I hope to provide a warm and nurturing holding space built on mutuality and respect, and to witness and explore your subjective experience with curiosity and care. I also believe in the power of self-reflection, empathic attunement and vulnerability in helping us embrace our whole selves, heal and create fulfilling lives.
I work from a Humanistic-Existential and Relational framework, and adopt an intersectional and trauma-informed lens in my approach. I resonate with principles of Internal Family Systems Therapy and Somatic approaches to psychotherapy, which I draw from as well. Additionally, I am certified in “Existential Well-being Counselling: A Person-centered Experiential Approach” by KU LeuvenX (Online learning initiative of University in Belgium). I am currently training in Trauma Focused Therapy with Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS).
Apart from this, I enjoy music, literature, and art. I love to traverse into nature, and often find myself looking to have either an adventure or a laugh. I also harbor a strong passion for learning, possess a deep love for animals, and derive purpose from engaging with and contributing to the world around me.
