Shruti is an Existential Psychotherapist with nearly a decade of experience in working with a wide range of clients. These include individuals, couples, parent and child dyads, adolescents, and families through family systemic therapy. Shruti offers a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore the reasons which brought you to therapy in the first place. By methodically listening, questioning and asking you to narrate your life story and experiences, she enables an environment where a firm therapeutic alliance can be built.
This therapist-client relationship will facilitate self-exploration and reflection; the predominant processes via which we are able to transform and make changes we would like to. As we move through this narration, we will uncover truths with an open mind and an attitude of wonder and curiosity, casting aside pre-existing diagnoses or labels to form a new perspective of ourselves.
As a therapist, Shruti aims to create a space in which you can further your efforts of finding meaning in the face of challenges. You would work cautiously to enable: a larger awareness, reflection and control over your thoughts and actions, to confront internal challenges, as well as learning the impacts of external influences and how to manoeuvre through them. These can include societal pressures, cultural limitations, familial influence amongst many other. In working existentially, Shruti emphasizes to her clients that she doesn’t work with an agenda or pre-existing diagnoses, albeit maybe the one: You learn to make more wilful decisions about how to live, drawing on creativity, agency and love, instead of letting external forces or events determine your behaviour and relational patterns.
Shruti works with all concerns that may bring you to therapy, be it anger management, anxiety, depression, eating disorder, relationship issues, addictions, grief and loss, self-esteem, loneliness, sadness, life coaching, these are just some examples. She has worked extensively with and feels her passion is working with grief and loss as it precipitates every aspect of our lives. Most recently, the pandemic is a global experience in which humanity suffered exponential loss and many of us grieved over many issues such as isolation, loneliness, limitations/restrictions in living, physical space, and death, these are just some concerns amongst many others.
Shruti is currently studying towards a Masters in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling. She has a BSc in Marketing with a minor in Psychology and an MBA. After ten years of corporate experience in Human Resources, she embarked on a personal journey and decided to retrain as a psychotherapist.
