Hi there, I’m Gowri, a registered Counsellor with the Singapore Association of Counselling. I am passionate about working closely with clients to improve their mental well-being and quality of life. I embrace an empathic, non-judgmental, and respectful therapeutic style, creating a safe space for clients to share their struggles.
My motivation and interest to become a Counsellor began in my early teens. A friend approached me to share the immense pain she had been experiencing due to parental divorce. Despite providing a listening ear, I felt helpless, not possessing the skills and knowledge that would have allowed me to journey with her through a difficult period, improving her well-being. This remains my motivation to enter the helping profession and my dedication to empowering and uplifting clients.
I have over six years of experience conducting individual, couple and family therapy with locals and expats across the lifespan. Grounded in Person-Centered Therapy, I adopt an integrative approach, drawing from evidence-based interventions such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
Providing interventions competently and effectively, I have worked with clients presenting a wide spectrum of mental health and other issues, which include Depression, Stress, Emotional Regulation, Grief, Family Conflict, Marital Conflict, Parenting difficulties, Suicidal Risk, Self-Harm and Relationship issues.
Interests include Meditation, Spending time in Nature, Travelling, and Exploring food from different cultures.
