She uses a cognitive behavioral approach, internal family systems and EMDR in supporting her clients.
BIO AND PERSONAL
Sindhu is wife to Robert – her creative, engineer husband of eight years and mother to a smart and spirited six-year-old. She is a baking enthusiast as well as nature and animal lover.
Sindhu was born to missionary parents and grew up in a remote tribal village. Her unconventional childhood is reflected in her list of pets to include - an abandoned baby monkey, two parrots, a cage full of canaries, two dogs and two rabbits that never cease to multiply. Early childhood memories revolve around being gone from dawn to dusk, accompanying her tribal family as they took their cows across the hills to graze or keep them company as they watched over their paddy fields.
She hopes one day to retire in the countryside where she can enjoy being closer to nature and enjoy a farm full of animals.
