Hello, my name is Dr Anu Paradkar

I work with clients who like to engage in a collaborative style of working on their presenting concerns and distress to create change.

I work with a lot of clients who are experiencing psychological distress that may manifest in a wide variety of emotional experiences ranging from the experience of low mood, poor motivation, interpersonal difficulties, relationship difficulties, difficulties in managing emotions such as mood swings/ anger, thoughts or acts of self-harm, depression, anxiety. I also work with adult survivors of sexual abuse. I also work with people wanting to better cope with work related or study related stressors.

My therapeutic style is collaborative and client focused. I work with clients to help them identify and define what they would like out of therapy, and use a variety of approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to help my clients achieve a greater awareness of their thoughts, the relationship between their thoughts, emotions, physiological experiences and their subsequent behaviours. I work with clients to help them change their internal dialogue to facilitate more adaptive coping. My own philosophy is that we all have the capacity to live fulfilling lives despite circumstances and that sometimes we need the help of a specialist to help us recognise that we could be coping better, and collaborate with us to identify skills already present and help develop new skills that could assist us in working towards goals and mindsets that would help us move towards greater fufillment and live our lives with more passion, building on our strengths.
