Therapeutic Style

I like to begin therapy with a discussion about your concerns, what you are hoping to achieve and learn about any previous experiences you have had with therapy (including any techniques you have found helpful and unhelpful). Based on your symptoms and goals for therapy, we can collaboratively determine what duration of therapy would be most effective and manageable for you. In subsequent sessions, I will focus on sharing my expertise in psychological interventions that may be beneficial for you, and together we will work on implementing coping strategies to help you manage your symptoms.

Treatment Approaches

Komal has training and experience in incorporating the following treatment approaches and strategies into her work with clients:

  • Client-centered therapy
  • Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
  • Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)
