Ms. Parita J Shah (M.A. )
Welcome to my profile! You may have landed here because you are facing challenges in life and you’re looking for some answers. Many clients feel anxious and unsure about how a counseling or therapy session will go. It is completely normal to feel anxious discussing subjects that are close to your heart. I understand how important it is for you to have a safe, caring environment to work on issues related to your emotional and mental health.
My approach to therapy involves a balance between helping a client explore past experiences and identifying how these experiences may be affecting them currently. I work with children, teenagers, adults and couples to strengthen their relationships and emotional life. I incorporate elements and therapy tools from various approaches like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Art Therapy, Gestalt Therapy, Pre Marital & Post Marital Therapy, etc. I have been a counselor in School, College, Hospital and private practice for over few years. People come to see me to help with anxiety, stress, depression, self-esteem, memory issues, sadness, shame, guilt or anger, family & relationship issues, loneliness, etc. Also my practice includes relationship difficulties, fertility-related stress (including infertility, miscarriage, pregnancy terminations etc) sexual issues. I also practice Reiki and Tarot Reading. All of these enable me to listen empathetically and respond effectively.
I also provide psychometric assessments for all the age group. These psychometric assessments are provided for an individual or for group who is looking to assist their students or company employee etc. My area of psychotherapy specializes in carrying out IQ Assessment, Personality Assessment, Career Guidance, Managerial / Employee Assessment, Neuropsychological assessments etc. to check on Developmental Disorder, i.e. Learning Disability and Attention Deficit Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Mood Disorder, Psychotic Disorder, Personality Disorder, Eating Disorder, Sleep Disorder etc. by using a standardized test battery (including understanding of the assessment, scoring, analyzing and initial preparation of a report)
I conduct Workshops for Children i.e. Career Guidance workshop, Summer camp etc. on various age group i.e. from pre-primary to higher secondary at a stretch.
My hope is to reconnect you with those aspects of yourself that hold the truths, needs and wishes that may have been denied in some way, with the feelings of peace, fulfillment, and confidence in life, and that ultimately can help bring about a deeper connection with yourself, and your loved ones. If you and I are a fit, it would be a privilege to walk with you on this part of your life’s journey.
