Counsellor & Psychotherapist
Tak Ananda is a professionally qualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist and the author of `Talk Together: Walking the Journey with Our Adolescent’. Tak works with Individuals, Couples and Families to explore and resolve a wide range of personal and interpersonal issues that get in the way of living life authentically and fully.
“Throughout my life I have taken an interest in human psychology, health and spirituality. These interests inspired me to undertake a journey of extensive study in the field of human dynamics. Now, as an eclectic practitioner with a wide range of experiences, I endeavour to integrate my knowledge, intuition and understanding to tailor the needs of individual/s in my therapeutic practice."
Tak works in a holistic way to incorporate the individual’s internal world, family-of-origin, relational interaction, social and community considerations, past experiences, current contextual framework and future aspirations. She values and takes into consideration cultural, gender, religious and socio-political context and is aware how these factors impact on peoples’ lives.
Tak's work with peoples’ processes is based on an ethos of respect, dignity, compassion, equanimity, uniqueness and self-determination. She endeavours to work from a non-biased and nonjudgmental framework.
Her professional training requires an in-depth knowledge and understanding of human psychology, sociology, therapeutic capacities and ethical and professional boundaries.
Tak works in a professionally and ethically contracted relationship that enables individuals, couples and families to feel safe in exploring and resolving areas of an interpersonal and intrapersonal nature. Although she abide by the principles of confidentiality at all times, she may be required by law to disclose information in certain instances. Tak seeks ongoing clinical supervision, professional development, self-awareness, self-development, self-monitoring and self-examination as central to effective and ethical practice.
In conjunction with providing face-to-face therapy with individuals, couples, families and young people, Tak has been involved in providing psycho-educational and psychotherapeutic group workshops.
These collective experiences brought Tak to a place where she embarked in writing a book called `Talk Together: Walking the Journey with Our Adolescent’. This book provides information to guide parents through a wide range of challenges in our young person.
