Therapy Approach

Sharmila uses evidence-based techniques to help you to overcome problematic thoughts, feelings and behaviour. Sharmila’s interventions are drawn from her initial post-graduate training and ongoing professional development in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) combined with a developmental, attachment-based assessment and therapeutic model. Understanding the way in which your thoughts, feelings and behaviours have developed since childhood, is essential to understanding psychological issues Sharmila deals with in adults.
