I obtained my masters degree in Psychology from Delhi University in 2000. During my post graduate program, I did my internship at RAHI (Recovery and Healing from Incest). It is a support group for women survivors of Incest, located in Delhi. During my work there, I developed a questionnaire to identify the level of awareness of child sexual abuse and incest, amongst the mental health professionals in Delhi hospitals and conducted semi- structured interviews. Since then I have explored this subject and have urged and assisted parents and educators in promoting awareness about it.
My thesis on 'Feminism in society and academics' under the guidance of Dr. Suneet Varma, gave me further insight into the gender biased and harsh inequality practices.
I went to Canada to pursue Ph.D in Applied Social Psychology and completed one semester. I chose to come back to India to establish my private practice. However, the courses that I completed were excellent and they gave me a better understanding on Applied social Psychology.
My journey as a counseling psychologist began in 2003 when I first heard about EFT. As a psychologist, I was very skeptical about EFT. But once I applied on and experienced its benefits, I was totally impressed by the effectiveness of it and immediately went to train myself in EFT. I completed EFT-CC & EFT-ADV certificate programs by Gary Craig and Patricia Carrington in 2004 and completed the highly competitive EFT-CERT I program* in 2009 and became the only EFT Practitioner certified by Gary Craig (the founder of EFT) in India.
In 2011, I completed the EFT Universe Certification Program by Dawson Church and became the first and only certified EFTU practitioner in India. I am also an AAMET accredited certified EFT Trainer. I have 12+ years of experience in the field of therapy.
I consider having a background in psychology to be an 'important determinant of successful EFT therapy' since EFT combined with traditional as well as modern psycho-therapeutic modalities has the power to take you beyond mechanical EFT.
I have spent the last few years in researching EFT architecture and methodologies and have developed Geo-specific EFT approach. It is a new approach in EFT that can help resolve issues mired in the culture & religion. I have worked with various clients across the globe with diverse cultural and religious backgrounds.
I am fluent in English and Hindi and can provide consultation in these two languages.
Note: EFT CERT I is the only official certification program which was issued by Gary Craig's EFT foundation.EFT- CC & EFT- ADV certificates were awarded by Pace Educational Systems, N.J, U.S.A.
