Private Sessions

I see clients virtually, in my LA offices and also visit companies. Sessions are unique and enjoyable. We will pause and navigate your inner world peacefully. After listening to you I will tailor sessions to suit your specific needs. I deeply care and am dedicated to helping you overcome any challenges. My eclectic modes of therapy are all scientifically researched and studied. I offer unique solutions, teach you tools to self-manage emotions, and provide expert guidance. After sessions you will be more energized, confident, happy and able to make intuitive decisions.


What's your background and qualifications?

I studied Psychotherapy and Hypnosis at Master's level in England and am certified in Mindfulness techniques developed at Oxford University. During the week I work in Malibu rehabs helping people recover from addiction and guide classes at LA meditation studios. British with Indian heritage I've experienced working in the East and the West. Earlier on my life journey, I achieved critical acclaim as a lead actress in Bollywood and Europe becoming the most Googled name in India (2010). A Descendant of Sage Mandavya I come from an ancient lineage of teachers who pass down meditation and timeless knowledge. Now I'm dedicated to helping people transform so they may live blissful lives. If you're looking for someone creative who can delve deep, we could be a good fit.
