Dr Shabana M.S.

Counselling Psychologist
23 years of experience
In my professional journey as a Clinical Psychologist, I've come to believe deeply in the inherent goodness and potential within each individual. Hey, I am Dr. Shabana, and my therapeutic approach is grounded in unconditional positive regard. In my practice, I aim to foster an environment where clients can embrace their uniqueness and embark on a journey of self-discovery, acceptance, and transformation. With over 20 years of clinical experience, I've had the privilege of working across various settings, including hospitals, educational institutions, NGOs, and government projects, serving as a Consultant and in-house Psychologist. As the Principal Psychologist and Founder of LitmuS Psychological Services, I also provide online psychological support and training. Additionally, I am honored to be associated with Manipal Hospital as a Consultant Psychologist, where I continue to contribute to the field of mental health. Throughout my career, I've addressed a diverse range of mental health issues and provided family and marital counseling, along with offering support to chronically and terminally ill patients. My academic journey includes earning a Ph.D. in Psychology from the Department of Psychology, University of Calicut, where I conducted an in-depth study on the Psychosocial Correlates of Conduct Disorders and the Efficacy of an Intervention Programme. I've also received training in Hypnotherapy, further enhancing my therapeutic toolkit. Additionally, as an active member of professional organizations such as the Indian Academy of Applied Psychology, Tamil Nadu Psychology Association, Indian Association of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis, British Psychological Society, and American Psychological Association, I remain committed to staying updated with the latest developments in the field. My areas of focus in therapy include individual therapy, relationship counseling, marital counseling, family counseling, and psychotherapy for depression and anxiety. I also specialize in grief and bereavement counseling, infertility counseling, and providing support to the LGBTQIA+ community. Additionally, I offer counseling for coping with chronic illness, managing caregiver stress, achieving work-life balance, and stress management. I am also passionate about promoting well-being, building confidence and resilience, and providing life coaching for adolescents and adults, along with offering psychoeducation to empower individuals with knowledge about mental health and self-care.

Sayesha Mani

Clinical Psychologist
5 years of experience
I aim to facilitate holistic healing by working collaboratively with clients through various modalities. Hey, I’m Sayesha, a licensed clinical psychologist (A). I specialize in working with queer and neurodivergent individuals and adults with ADHD, anxiety, and depression. I also help my clients deal with relationship concerns, mental well-being at work, and grief. In my practice, I seek to be inclusive, affirmative, and comprehensive. Combining these principles in practice, for me, means actively working towards creating an environment where everyone feels welcome, valued, and heard. It requires ongoing self-reflection, learning, and openness to feedback. By embracing inclusivity, affirming individuals' identities and experiences, and adopting a comprehensive perspective, I allow myself to make a meaningful difference in the lives of those I work with. Moreover, this approach contributes to a more just and equitable society where diversity is acknowledged. My fundamental approach relies on drawing on my training and my own experiences as a queer and neurodivergent individual. The approach I take to therapy emphasizes and encourages the recognition that the client defines their identity through multiple intersections. By providing a space for clients to tell their stories and experiences, the client and I can discover their unique ways of being and expressing themselves. Having faced a lack of accommodating spaces for my mental well-being, I am driven to create spaces that foster self-acceptance and recovery through a trauma-informed lens. I am also keen on bringing a deeply political perspective to psychology - following the belief that our existence is inseparable from our larger environment.
