Ms. Twinkle Thakkaris a graduate in psychology with master‘s in children & young people’s mental health and psychological practice from University of Edinburgh, UK. She has done specialization in counselling psychology from St. Xavier’s Mumbai.
Her role at Prayatna involves facilitating client particularly parents/families to understand the needs of their child better, recognize negative patterns of functioning and adapting healthier narrative towards life. Moreover, she is passionate about engaging with children/adolescents and therefore she also wears the hat of child counsellor, special educator and life skills coach. Her approach towards counselling is primarily person centered with a mix of cognitive behavior therapy, rational emotive behavior therapy and narrative therapy.
Besides this, my educational background also prepared me well for research papers and presentations – the most recent one being (‘A Quantitative and Qualitative Study: Barriers and Facilitators to Engagement in Psychotherapies from Clients’ Perspective’). Lastly, She enjoys writing inspiring/non fictional articles – you can find them on my professional Instagram page @twinklethakkar93.
