Most of us naturally resist discomforting and distressing thoughts and emotions. What if you could lean in and become curious about them? How about you learn to recognize them as signposts that might hold key information about you and your inner world?
curiosity, compassion and courage!
Own your journey! Let’s ride with
“The real journey
and the only one
is the journey within!"
Our life journey is about unlearning and relearning! We explore these questions at a very slow and paced manner, peeling off each skin with utmost care and compassion. On the road to self-discovery, you would find yourself joining the dots and re-learning a lot about ‘YOU’.
Your life, your story!
I am a psychologist who deeply believes in working towards people’s potential to re-write their own stories. Witnessing clients making progress and working towards their goals is a self-fulfilling and rewarding experience. Apart from feeling inspired by listening to people’s stories, I am an animal lover and have a keen interest in reading, dancing, fitness and trekking!
Using a psychodynamic framework, I assist you to gain awareness about the context of your responses, cultivate radical acceptance, and build adaptive resources to facilitate healing. As a therapist, I adopt a trauma-informed lens in my work as it enables me to honour your journey from a compassionate lens. Using effective relational practices, I am able to affirm your lived experiences. Major themes of my work include building physical and emotional safety, trust, and maintaining a collaborative association by offering choice and control to you, focusing on your strengths, and empowering YOU to build skillsets and a sense of agency.

I specialize in dealing with concerns related to stress and anger management, trauma and abuse,
anxiety and mood disorder, interpersonal difficulties and life stress.

Lives healed! Lives transformed!
My journey with Ankita has certainly been a fruitful one. It has been a while since we had our final session, yet her words linger in my day-to-day thoughts. She guided me through my relationship with anxiety and grief. The way she holds space and listens to you makes you realise that your relationship with yourself goes beyond any relationship you’ll ever hold. Thanks to her, my perception of therapy shifted from that of a ‘process’ to a more humanised and personal connection with myself. Ankita’s words, patience and determination towards my own difficulties made me a kinder and happier individual for the person who matters most in my life – me.
I would like to thank you for bringing me back to my normal life. The sessions with you helped me cope up with my postpartum depression and I gained confidence that I can take good care of my kids. Now I am absolutely well with your guidance. Thank you so much once again.
Hi Ankita, Since the time I’ve been taking sessions with you I’ve noticed a fundamental shift in the way I’m approaching my life. A mere Thankyou would not even be enough for the amount of support & guidance you have given me on this journey of healing. I’m grateful to have a therapist like you who provides me a safe space to express my thoughts and at the same time is able to help me understand myself deeper with each passing session.
Thank you so much for making me emotionally strong, confident, and making me realise that I can take my own decision and don’t have to depend on others and it’s normal. At a time, I have lost most important people of my life and I was not able to see that I’ll not be able do anything with my life. But, these session has given me the self-confident which I never have Before, and thank you for making me realise that I don’t need to shut my emotions and help me to understand my own emotions and guide me how to process each of emotions. Seriously I’m so glad that I’ve decide to take sessions. YOU’RE THE LIFE SAVIOR FOR ME
