About me

Shruti is an Existential Psychotherapist with nearly a decade of experience in working with a wide range of clients. These include individuals, couples, parent and child dyads, adolescents, and families through family systemic therapy.  Shruti offers a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space for you to explore the reasons that brought you to therapy in the first place.  By methodically listening, questioning and asking you to narrate your life story and experiences, she enables an environment where a firm therapeutic alliance can be built.  

This therapist-client relationship will facilitate self-exploration and reflection; the predominant processes via which we are able to transform and make changes we would like to.   As we move through this narration, we will uncover truths with an open mind and an attitude of wonder and curiosity, casting aside pre-existing diagnoses or labels to form a new perspective of ourselves.

As a therapist, Shruti aims to create a space in which you can further your efforts of finding meaning in the face of challenges. You would work cautiously to enable: a larger awareness, reflection and control over your thoughts and actions, to confront internal challenges, as well as learning the impacts of external influences and how to manoeuvre through them. These can include societal pressures, cultural limitations, familial influence amongst many others.  In working existentially, Shruti emphasizes to her clients that she doesn’t work with an agenda or pre-existing diagnoses, albeit maybe the one: You learn to make more wilful decisions about how to live, drawing on creativity, agency and love, instead of letting external forces or events determine your behaviour and relational patterns.

Shruti works with all concerns that may bring you to therapy, be it anger management, anxiety, depression, eating disorder, relationship issues, addictions, grief and loss, self-esteem, loneliness, sadness, and life coaching, these are just some examples.  She has worked extensively with and feels her passion is working with grief and loss as it precipitates every aspect of our lives.  Most recently, the pandemic has been a global experience in which humanity suffered exponential loss and many of us grieved over many issues such as isolation, loneliness, limitations/restrictions in living, physical space, and death, these are just some concerns amongst many others.  

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been a therapist for seven years. I started in London, UK where I gained experience in alcohol and drug addiction, as well as inter-cultural therapy. This allowed me to work with clients from a wide variety of nationalities, faith, sexual orientations and mental health concerns. I have also worked in Singapore where I deepened my experience in a private practice by working with individuals, couples, dyads (parent and child) and families for therapeutic interventions. I also complimented my experience by volunteering and attending to the needs of the young adults and social workers within NGO’s/charities in Singapore.

I am currently studying towards a Doctorate in Professional Studies (DProf) in Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling. I have a BSc in Marketing with a minor in Psychology and an MBA. After ten years of corporate experience in Human Resources, I embarked on a personal journey and decided to retrain as a psychotherapist.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
