Hi, I'm Shuktika
Life can get challenging, so I’m glad that you’ve reached out for help. I’ve always believed that finding the right psychologist is like finding the right pair of shoes – if we’re going to be on this journey for a while, we want to be comfortable!
Having worked with a diverse group of people, I recognise that we are all unique and our individual strengths and interests will support our journey towards wellness. My style is collaborative and person-centred, and I want to help you create real and meaningful change in your life.
I look forward to meeting you and working together to reach your potential and achieve your goals – however distant they may seem to you now. This process takes work, but we’re in this together.
