Ms Akanksha Sharma

Clinical Psychologist
4 years of experience
My therapy sessions focus on helping individuals discover their authentic selves and live an empowered life. Hi! I am Akanksha, a Licensed Clinical Psychologist who believes in creating a safe and compassionate space for individuals to process their thoughts and emotions. I understand that there are some situations in life that can cause deep emotional wounds and further lead to unpleasant feelings and unhealthy thought patterns. So, in my sessions, I strive to create a space where every individual can express themselves freely, without any fear of judgment, and further learn to work on their emotional wounds while navigating the challenges of life. I have an experience of 4 years of working with more than 1000 individuals from varied social identities (age, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and social class). I provide psychotherapy to individuals of 18 years and above for mental health concerns such as anxiety disorders, mood disorders, managing painful emotions, low self-esteem, coping with relationships, and work stress. As a psychotherapist, I employ a client-centered, trauma-informed, and existential lens to therapy. My therapy techniques are derived from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Inner Child Work, and Humanistic therapy. In essence, my aim as a therapist is to guide individuals toward embracing their true selves and empowering them to lead fulfilling lives armed with effective coping mechanisms.

Seeking Therapy in Mangalore

Mangalore, a city characterized by its vibrant culture and economic activities, has recently witnessed significant growth, especially with its status as a banking hub and substantial contributions to the coffee export industry. The city's bustling and competitive atmosphere, a mirror image of its economic prowess, reflects its pivotal role in India's progress. However, this rapid development can bring about challenges, potentially giving rise to mental health issues such as financial stress, occupational pressures, and complex family dynamics.

Thus, amidst Mangalore's dynamic landscape, prioritizing mental well-being becomes important. In recent times, the residents of Mangalore have shown a heightened awareness of the significance of mental health. There is a growing acknowledgment of the importance of mental well-being, accompanied by increased support for those seeking professional assistance. While the city's fast-paced and competitive lifestyle and engagement as an economic hub and coffee exporter can often lead to burnout and fatigue, therapy emerges as a valuable resource, providing individuals with the tools to rejuvenate, enabling them to pursue their goals while enhancing their overall welfare.

How to Select the Top Psychologist in Mangalore?

Choosing the right therapist requires time and dedication, molded to your individual needs and preferences. When seeking the ideal therapist in Mangalore, follow these steps:
