Therapy By Saniya
Being Happy is always in Vogue!
Hey there! Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Saniya. I am a psychologist by profession and a travel enthusiast by choice!
With my experience of working with the young and old, I have come to realise that one may appear fantastic and on top of the world, but maybe struggling from within.
I have also come across courageous people who still have the grit to get up despite falling many times. This site belongs to every person who is ready to give life a second chance.
My work offers EVERYONE a safe space to let loose and take care of themselves because self-care is NOT selfish!
My page on Instagram- https://www.instagram.com/therapybysaniya/ provides doable tips for feeling better! We are now a community of 10,000+ members!
So embark on this journey with me where you trust, vent and transform!

Therapy is for EVERYONE
A generic thought process is that only the ones who have a disorder or "mental problem" need therapy. However, this is not true.
Therapy provides you a safe space to share your feelings and emotions. You can share anything and everything.
Feeling overwhelmed? Want to speak about the stress at work?
Services I Offer
Are you feeling blue?
Do you think your life is a mess?
You need a place to vent out?
Join me for an individual session!
In the therapy sessions, we will work towards understanding your concerns and will work out a way to solve the same!
Therapy with Children
Children think and feel just like us. They also feel de-motivated, distracted and under-confident when they lose a soccer match or score less in an exam.
As adults, some are able to express and some not!
If you feel that your child/children need an external push or maybe someone to share their feelings with, feel free to opt for therapy! Let me assure you- IT WORKS!
"And they lived happily ever after..."
Cannot resonate with this?
Fret not! After all, life is not a movie!
If you feel your relationship needs some revamping and sorting out some core-problems, join me for a couple-therapy session! We will discuss various ways to communicate better and would try to develop common strategies towards all of life's most complex matters.
"My parents don't understand me"
"My children don't respect me"
If you resonate with these examples, looks like it is time for communication enhancement and conflict resolution
Let's sit together and understand where is the gap!
"Personality has the power to uplift, the power to depress, the power to curse, and power to bless."
- Paul. P Harris

All About Therapy
What is therapy?
It is simply a process intended to heal in a non-judgmental environment
Will I judge you?
Absolutely not! I respect you unconditionally for the person you are!
Is everything confidential?
If you are an adult, then everything you share here stays in here! However, it will be a good idea if you share a trusted person's number in case there is any point when you may want to harm yourself or others or you may be in danger and I can make sure that you are okay! In case of children, I would need to be in touch with parents/guardians/ trusted adults only for the purpose of ensuring that you are safe when I am not around!
What Therapies do I use?
I usually use an eclectic approach in my therapy sessions. This means that I use a combination of therapies. Some of the therapies that I use are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Behavioural Therapy, Art Therapy, Play Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy among others.
