My interest in psychology started during my school days, where I noticed some of my friends not fitting in and feeling misunderstood. After a long process of talking and some Google-ing, it felt really fulfilling to see the same friends slowly feel much better about themselves. This was what made me believe that people, with the right support, can achieve their potential.
I obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the International Medical University, Malaysia. I then went through a 3 month internship placement at the Psychiatric Department of the Hospital Tuanku Jaa’far, Seremban under the supervision of a psychiatrist. It was here that I saw the need for Clinical Psychologists to address the growing mental health concerns in society. I then graduated with my Masters in Clinical Psychology from HELP University. During this time, I obtained clinical hours in HELP’s Clinical Psychology and Counseling services centre as well as in Kajang Hospital. I encountered individuals facing difficulties such as depression, anxiety and conducted numerous assessments for Autism, ADHD and IQ tests for children and adolescents.
Currently, I work with corporate partners affiliated with The Mind. I conduct individual coaching sessions and group sessions on various topics such as general wellness, stress and anxiety management, coping skills, and personality exploration in a workplace setting.
My name is Darsha, and it’s a pleasure to meet you. I am a Clinical Psychologist by training. More specifically I am someone who helps people understand who they were, are and who they can be. You could be searching for some guidance or support for something that is bothering you in the present, or even something from the past. Using a combination of Schema therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy and narrative therapy approaches, I can help you explore your history and discover patterns that have affected you in ways that you did not realize before.
The process of therapy is one that can help you grow in ways you never thought possible. Maybe you are satisfied with some aspects of your life, but you want to work on some others. Whatever it is, I think you know you could be more happy and fulfilled. It would be an honor to help you live a more fulfilled life. A life of excitement and meaning.
