Ms Dhannya Ittymathew

Counselling Psychologist
15 years of experience
In this crucial era for mental health, many once-neglected concerns are now gaining the attention they deserve. This shift has led to increased awareness, destigmatization, and improved access to support and resources for those affected. My journey in this field began in 2004, after completing two PGs, an M.Sc. in Psychology, and an MSW in Medical and Psychiatric Social Work. Working in this area is my passion. Witnessing individuals achieve their full potential brings me immense joy and fuels my drive to be a part of their transformative journey. My dedication to this field is deeply personal as well. My own beautiful and inspiring daughter, who is on the autism spectrum, continues to amaze me with her beautiful poems and paintings. Witnessing her creativity and resilience has further motivated me to support individuals with diverse abilities and challenges. Over the years, I have worked with individuals diagnosed with various mental health challenges, including depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, personality disorders, phobia, anger, postpartum depression, and autism spectrum disorder. Additionally, I have experience working with cancer patients, the geriatric population, and those with lifestyle disorders. My expertise also extends to helping individuals navigate breakups and relationship issues. I firmly believe in exploring issues in-depth and creating tailored programs based on each person's unique needs. In terms of certifications, I am trained in Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and counseling skills. My therapeutic approach revolves around active listening, organizing thoughts, and fostering a non-judgmental and accepting environment, which can be truly transformative. I have actively advocated for stress management, positive attitude, communication skills, anger management, change management, and goal setting for life. Being part of these initiatives allows me to contribute positively to the well-being of individuals and communities. In conclusion, I am committed to making a difference in the lives of those I work with, and I am determined to continue supporting individuals in their journey toward mental well-being and personal growth.
