Upon completion of her PhD from the University of Madras, she started her career as a freelance Psychologist in Chennai when the field of mental health was in its nascent stage. To channelize and consolidate her vast experience and render a noble service to society, she established “Explore Counselling” (https://Explorecounselling.com), an organization with the committed motto of “Hopeless to Hopeful”.

She has also conducted workshops and seminars on various topics in the UK, Malaysia, Australia, DOHA and Sri Lanka. Having interacted with multidimensional stakeholders in the field of Mental Health for over two decades, she felt a compelling need to support and monitor mental health professionals to hone their skills so that they deliver effective therapy to their clients. This need, along with her association with international experts in the field of counselling and psychology gave birth to the establishment of the “Indian Academy of Professional Supervisors(IAPS) .” and she is the Founder/President of IAPS.
