Her expertise is working with youth, adults, and families from different socio-economic and cultural backgrounds. She has worked in correctional services, and various community sectors namely, disadvantaged, and marginalised youth, alcohol and other substances, homelessness, unemployment, sexual assault and family violence.

Geetha believes that we are all unique and experience the world differently in our own special way. For this reason, she does not use a one size fits all counselling approach but adopts different strategies and techniques to provide the most effective treatment for her clients. She uses a culturally sensitive, strengths-based, and trauma-informed approach to guide her practice. Moreover, her counselling style provides a safe, confidential, warm, and nurturing environment for each person to be heard and understood in a non-judgmental way.
Geetha believes that therapy is a collaborative relationship in which both client and counsellor are involved in a journey of self-discovery. Therefore, the client-therapist relationship is of paramount importance because it is the relationship that brings comfort and healing.
Geetha aims to assist her clients to take control of their destiny and function productively by empowering them with the necessary skills to realise their dreams and goals!
