About Aditi Kulkarni
I am a counsellor and I work with individual and couples. Clients seek help with a variety challenges including those related to self-esteem, depression, anxiety, relationships, stress, bereavement and coping with change.
I have a BACP accredited Masters in Counselling Psychology from Keele University (UK) and Masters in Applied Psychology from Delhi University (India). I offer counselling sessions in English, Hindi, and Marathi - in person as well as online.
I have lived in three countries (and six cities) over the last ten years, and have experienced change and the challenges associated with it from close quarters. Through the span of my career, I have worked in a variety of settings including Private practice, Employee Assistance Programs, Counselling Charities, Primary Schools and a Trauma Counselling Centre. I have had the privilege of working with clients from diverse socio-cultural and ethnic backgrounds. These varied experiences inform my practice as a counsellor.
My aim is to offer you a safe, non-judgmental and confidential environment where you can talk freely, without hesitation. I truly believe that one size does not fit all. My approach to counselling is very collaborative in nature, and the sessions will be shaped to meet your needs and goals.
In my practice, I use an integrative approach, drawing primarily from the person-centred approach, and often include elements of mindfulness, solution-focused therapy, expressive art and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I support clients with challenges related to depression, anxiety, self-esteem, adjustment, work-life balance, body image, relationships, trauma, bereavement and coping with life transitions.
I am here to help you with:
gaining insight into your feelings, thoughts and behaviours
overcoming self-defeating negative beliefs
learning coping strategies
building resilience for tackling future challenges
improving your relationship with yourself and others
