The world is more open about the importance and impact of mental health than ever before, and yet it seems like it’s never been easier to feel completely isolated. Message updates, Facebook posts and things like Instagram stories all make you feel this constant urge to check, re-check, and check again. Why? Because you never want to miss anything from the perfect lives of everyone you know and follow. But is this the way real life actually is?
My professional work as a trained and certified Counsellor has shown me the negative impact of isolation, ongoing work issues, relationship conflict and not seeking help until it’s too late until issues can no longer be ignored can cause more long-term harm than I can remember. When you’re constantly bombarded with manicured images and the very best moments others experience, you can be left feeling empty, isolated and constantly overwhelmed.
I want you to think about the act of reading and understanding my words here as your attempt to start breaking out of that vicious cycle

Here’s how we can work on this together:
My approach is friendly. I will let you talk and I will hear you out.
I am a specialist in CBT-based therapy and will also use spiritual-based therapy, mindfulness, strength-based and person-based therapy depending on the issue you present to me.
You have so many incredible things, paths and opportunities in life that it seems a shame to dismiss them simply because someone else is showing their best side. And if you really cannot think of anything right now, that’s okay too. Just hold onto the fact that these feelings will pass as you invest in your mental health.
Discussing how you feel with a trained and registered counsellor is a brave, positive and potentially life-changing act. Be proud that you’re about to do it and embrace the journey.

Shubham's areas of specialty
Being in a relationship can have a philosophically positive effect on your sense of self and well-being.
The benefits of keeping good relationships are well recognised: People in healthy relationships live longer and experience fewer physical, emotional, and mental health problems. Each relationship is unique and can be full of challenges. Together, we will identify key areas for change and improvement.
I will guide you through some practical tools to help you and your partner create a beautiful relationship.
For a healthy relationship communication skills are critical and essential. All relationships have ups and downs, but using a healthy communication style can make it easier to deal with conflict and build a stronger and healthier partnership.
Challenges you or your partner might be facing:
- Communication issues
- Trust issues
- Control or abusive behaviour
- Family issues
- Financial issues
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which focuses on how thoughts influence behaviours, is a common form of therapy for individuals as well as couples. Most of the issues are based on the life experiences we face. Sometimes a bad life experience helps us appreciate the good parts of life. Sometimes it can transform you.
With the help of CBT, I will help you to identify and change your unhappy ways of thinking, negative feelings, and thoughts. So that you can develop better ways of coping with bad thoughts and feelings. It will help you to face your fear and cope with it.
Depression is a common mental health condition that affects many Australians every day. Depression affects how you feel, think and behave, and it also has physical symptoms.
Anxiety and depression are different conditions, but it isn’t uncommon for them to occur together.
We all go through anxiety or depression at some point in our lives. But the only difference is that some can control it in a short time while some take a little more time. When emotion starts controlling the immortal mind, then the mind becomes restless, in such a situation it is very natural not to understand anything.
When anxious feelings don’t go away, they occur for no reason or make it difficult to cope with daily life, it may be a sign of an anxiety condition.
Anxiety is more than just feeling stressed or worried. Everyone falls into cognitive distortions on occasion, It’s part of the human experience. This happens particularly when we’re feeling down.
But if you engage too frequently in negative thoughts, your mental health can take a hit.
Our sessions will be friendly and tailored to your thinking pattern. I help you to become aware of how your thoughts are impacting your emotions and behaviours. I will guide you through mindfulness therapy to observe your thoughts.
Our thoughts, feelings and behaviour are all connected as our thoughts affect how we feel and act.
We all experience unhelpful thoughts from time to time and it’s important to know what to do when they appear. Mindfulness is a technique that needs your full attention and with the help of meditation, we will focus on breathing patterns.
Practising mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.
Meditation is a practice to engage in contemplation or reflection or could be expressed as engaging in a mental exercise (such as concentration on one’s breathing or repetition of a mantra) to reach a heightened level of spiritual awareness with oneself
It was 20 years ago I was introduced to meditation and mindfulness and was instructed to close my eyes to “connect to my inner self”.
I had no idea what that meant, but I just decided to follow the instructor to better understand if meditation and mindfulness would help me achieve the outcomes I wanted – It did and ever since I have been using Mindfulness therapy/ Mediation therapy with my clients subject to their presenting issues.
It is the feeling of calmness in my mind and complete relaxation in my body that is what I will guide you to do, which is simply to keep your focus.
Mindfulness takes practice, and you must be patient for better and positive results.
Australia is a multicultural community. Nearly one-quarter of our population was born in another country. Being culturally sensitive is a natural response and that forms your identity. It is not easy to come to another country and adopt the culture and civilization of that country. In such a situation, you may be facing language issues, isolation, loneliness, struggling to adapt to a new culture or being unable to manage a new life.
The therapy modality I use will emphasise the understanding of a client’s background and belief system as it relates to their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender or other important elements that make up someone’s culture and/or identity that might influence their mental health.
I recognise and understand that different values and cultural attitudes exist in different cultural groups. Language may also be a barrier for some clients in their attempt to seek help. For clients who are looking for a bilingual counsellor, I will be able to assist in three different languages – English, Hindi, and Bangla.
