Registered Counsellor Anugrah Bhagwat
I am a warm, compassionate, non-judgmental, client-centered counsellor and psychotherapist. I have practiced since 2011 - internationally and within Australia, working with individuals, couples and families. I am truly interested in what my clients have to say. I walk alongside my clients through their healing journey at the pace they set for me. I strive to keep counselling non- threatening and gentle and use a lot of creative techniques to assist, whilst deepening the process at the same time. I work with clients helping them achieve the goals they would like to accomplish. I teach my clients how to navigate the uncertainties of life building resilience, providing support, warmth and the expertise necessary to deal with the various complexities of life.
I specialize in complex trauma – Childhood Trauma, Sexual Abuse, PTSD, Accidents and trauma arising from other situations. I am trained in Art Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing and focus on trauma informed care and practice. Additionally, I use a lot of other creative skills and tools to tailor make counselling and psychotherapy as is best suited to each client integrating techniques from Dance and Movement Therapy (DMT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Solution Focused Therapy, Strengths-Based approaches and other approaches. I find that an integrative approach is rich in tools and can address a vast range of clientele and issues.
I have lived and worked in numerous multicultural settings and relate to people from diverse backgrounds easily. I am multi lingual - I speak English, Hindi and Marathi fluently. I lived in Cambodia for 5 years and speak basic Khmer.
In my experience people simply want to feel understood, supported and heard. They want to be seen and feel accepted. They want to know they are significant the way they are. They want to heal and move on to be free. They want hope and a way out of their struggle.
The work I do with my clients is based on a deep belief that everyone can heal, change and grow if given the right support, therefore I strive towards planting HOPE and a deep assurance in the hearts and minds of my clients’ that no matter how stuck they feel, no matter how overwhelmed or lost, no matter how dark the night – “there is always a way!”
