Let’s face it, life is challenging.
There are times when we feel overwhelmed by the struggles we are facing or have endured.
These may lead to emotional distress.
I believe that through healing and finding solutions to challenges you are facing, I can navigate and support you in this therapeutic journey to help with enhancing your wellness.

Ko Kavita Ram ahau

My ancestors are from India.

I was born in Waikato, NZ however grew up in Fiji. 

Growing up in a multicultural Pasifica environment and having strong ties with New Zealand, Fiji and India, I connect and understand the culture and traditions of many diverse ethnicities and extended family dynamics.

 

My approach to counselling is primarily person-centred, collaborative and strengths-based.

Narrative and Cognitive Behavioural  Therapy influence my work and I use play therapy for children 6 years and over as appropriate.

I am well versed with other methods of therapy and can flexibly match method to need, in order to focus, work through and alleviate issues.

 

I speak fluent English, Hindi and Fiji Hindi.

 

I also work with women in their darkest moments including grief, losses, despair, life change, suicidal thinking, abuse and trauma; empowering them to break the cycle.

 

I have extensive knowledge and experience of the NZ Ministry of Justice psycho-educational Strengthening Safety Service programme.
