Consultant Psychologist

Hello, my name is Lavanya Kaushal, and I am a graduate of Masters in Applied Psychology (Specialisation in Clinical Psychology) from TISS-BALM, and Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from IP College, Delhi University. I specialise in working with adults and adolescents with presenting issues of anxiety, depression, self-esteem and self-image, inability to cope with stress, traumatic childhood and past experiences. I follow an integrative approach to therapy and counselling, which combines techniques from various schools of thought. However, a typical session I have would include elements of expressive therapies, a trauma centered approach based on identifying certain behavioural patterns, and working with the inner child and childhood experiences. As an individual passionate about therapy and wanting to understand people better, I read up more about the client’s concerns, have a dialogue with the client on what works for them and what does not, and attend personal therapy in addition to peer and professional supervision to gain more perspective into my own as well as my client’s worlds.
