Vedanta completed her Bachelor of Psychology from James Cook University (Singapore) and her Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy from the University of Adelaide (Australia). She has experience working with youth with addictions at the Singapore Anti-Narcotics Association (SANA) and Reboot-Wellness (A Deaddiction Centre in India). Her empathy, compassion and drive to work with addiction comes from growing up in an environment where AA meetings, the serenity prayer, 12-Steps, and Al-Anon were normalized and common.
Having studied and worked in India, Australia, and Singapore, her counselling style is eclectic, person-centered, and multicultural while relying on evidence-based tools and techniques from attachment theories, mindfulness-based practices, and cognitive-behavioural therapy. Through her psychotherapy degree, she gravitates towards Expressive, Jungian, Emotion-focused, and Existential therapies, learning to tailor therapy to her client’s needs and preferences while working at The Cabin.
She strongly believes in empowering clients by creating a safe space for them to find meaning and purpose while helping them manage symptoms and cravings caused by addictions’ disease nature. In her free time, she enjoys dancing and painting.
