Clients can sometimes be apprehensive of the type of relationship they can have with their therapist. They can be uncertain if they can fully open up and express their issues and whether the therapy will help. 

I approach each client as individuals with the desire to provide them comfort and by approaching their issues holistically. Then, in collaboration with the client, I am able to identify and agree upon the therapeutic process that is attuned to their specific issues, needs and what they desire to achieve from therapy. 

I strive to create a safe, welcoming, and comfortable environment and value the importance of the therapeutic relationship so they can move forward with ease.

Ambita's Experience

Ambita is a Registered Psychotherapist with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychotherapy from Yorkville University, Canada and a Master’s degree in Organisational Psychology from Aston University, UK. She has experience in areas of Trauma (PTSD, Complex PTSD, Dissociative PTSD, and Acute Stress Disorder), grief and loss, anger management, emotional regulation, relationship dynamics, attachment wounding, self-esteem, anxiety, borderline personality disorder (BPD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Ambita also has experience of counselling individuals with terminal illnesses and their caregivers, and work-related stressors.

I was fortunate to grow up in an open and equitable environment that inspired individuality while providing the protection and sense of security of a collective environment. This helped me relate to Herman Hesse’s saying, “Within you, there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.” Varied dance forms and music from around the world have attracted me since a young age, and they bring me peace and joy. I also love cooking, yoga and meditation. These are aspects of my inner sanctuary.
