Welcome, My name is Kruti and my vision is to educate as many people as I can on the importance of Mental Health by offering face to face counselling, workshops and training across Dorset.
A Little Bit About Me
I was born and raised in the East End of London which is where I completed all of my studies and I moved down to the South in 2009. I love being by the sea and love going out for walks and being outdoors, which is something I enjoy with my family every weekend. I also enjoy reading various genres, fact and fiction and find that it relaxes me.
I am a stronger believer in personal growth and self development and believe that everyone deserves to be happy. I am passionate about counselling and love supporting people through their journeys.
I'm a fully qualified professional counsellor with over ten years of experience in dealing with mental health conditions. I have worked with a diverse range of people in different organisations which are listed below to see.
Currently I provide long and short term counselling sessions at my office in Parkstone, Poole and work using an integrative model drawing on skills from CBT, Solution Focused Therapy, Gestalt and Person Centred.
