About Shivani

As a Narrative Therapist, I abide by “the problem is the problem, the person is not the problem” (Michael White and David Epston). I believe that with every question I ask you, I am creating a possible version of your story – the one you are the expert on. I am sensitive of intersectionality and its delicate but empowering mix when counselling you as a part of your unique culture.

I also often blend the Narrative Therapy approach with Art Therapy. I have found even the people with the most awkward hide-and-seek relationships with their mental health make consistent progress, despite the resistance, in this way. The best part is - you don’t have to be an artist. Curious? Ask me by getting in touch.

A few areas of expertise:

Anxiety - Social & Social Media Anxiety, Acculturation Stress (adjusting in a new culture), Overcoming "Creative Block" & burnout.

Trauma - Grief & Loss, Abuse and/or assault. Identity Exploration - Developing understanding and acceptance of self, expression, gender, body image, personality, values, sexual orientation.

Relationships and sexual concerns.

Accepting that you or your relationships need help is not always easy. Asking for help doesn’t mean you (or your relationships) are weak, it means that you want to remain strong. As tough as it might be, it reflects your wisdom of your own resiliency and when you need to nurture it. I urge you to connect with me so we can take one step at a time- together.
