Yamini Profile

I am a qualified counselor with deep expertise in both Psychological Therapy and Academics, boasting over two decades of experience in the field. With a steadfast commitment to client-centered counseling, I am passionate about leveraging my skills to drive positive outcomes for those I work with.

My journey in counseling started with my personal connection as the spouse of an Indian Air Force officer. This unique position allowed me to offer my counseling services at various Air Force stations, where I witnessed firsthand the various challenges faced by those in the military community.

For 22 years, I have immersed myself in the educational realm, teaching at multiple Air Force schools and Kendriya Vidyalayas throughout India. My dedication to the holistic development of students isn’t just limited to the classroom. I have been counseling international students for the past 15 years, guiding them through the intricacies of SAT/PSAT/ACT as they aspire for college admissions in the US. Moreover, I’ve had the privilege to tutor US students in the Advanced Placement Psychology course, adding another layer to my academic contributions.

I specialize in student counseling, adeptly handling challenges like peer pressure and learning disabilities. I’m skilled in addressing diverse mental health issues, offering tools for stress, anger, and addiction management. My expertise also covers body image, eating disorders, and mood disorders. Additionally, I guide individuals through cultural adjustments, grief, and relationship dynamics, while fostering personal growth and addressing sleep disorders and time management.

    Growing up in Chennai, my father and I shared countless memories – from quiet afternoons under the shade of our mango tree to evening strolls by the Marina Beach. But life took a cruel twist, and I lost him. The vibrant streets of Chennai turned into constant reminders of my loneliness and overwhelming grief.

    In the midst of this emotional storm, I came across Manochikitsa. Desperately seeking solace, I connected with Yamini. The fact that she spoke Telugu, the language of many cherished memories with my father, brought an unexpected warmth. Yamini was more than just a counselor to me. Through our sessions, she gently held my hand, leading me through the maze of my emotions.

    The magic of Manochikitsa and Yamini's expertise was like a balm to my wounded heart. While my father's memories will always be bittersweet, I've found strength and a renewed sense of purpose. With each passing day, the world seems a little brighter, and I owe a big part of that to the support I found in Manochikitsa.
