About me

Hello, I’m Rupa, and welcome to Tulsi Counselling.

Many clients I see are struggling with changes in their lives. Whether within the family, at work, losing someone, illness, relationships, etc. The effects can be overwhelming both emotionally and physically.  Anxiety, depression, fatigue, difficulty sleeping are just some of the effects of prolonged stress. Many share how problems have only increased during the pandemic and now struggling to cope without additional support.

I help clients to work through their issues by identifying some of the underlying causes which are contributing to the way they are feeling.  I gently enquire about the emotional and physical experiences which are present. We explore healthier ways of relating to ourselves and others, promoting a sense of emotional stability. Many clients I see are looking for a therapist from a similar cultural background with an understanding of cultural norms and expectations.

I work with clients toward lasting change by exploring different ways of building resilience without feeling consumed and powerless.  Over time clients share how they are able to make the choices that serve them best and offer a sense of hope and joy.

For in-person sessions, my practice is based in North Finchley, London UK. I also offer online and telephone sessions.
