Avanti has been a registered psychologist since 1999. She uses a combination of cognitive-behavioral and positive psychological strategies for people going through periods of change and crisis as well as for stress, anxiety, fear, anger, grief, depression, infertility and illness. "Counselling and therapies can bring about profound changes in people but nothing truly shifts without changing beliefs and unfolding your deep purpose and desires. I use a myriad of therapies that increase awareness of the patterns and beliefs that are a constant source of problems and obstacles and teach techniques for building new relationships with yourself, others and life." The session treats the person as a whole by using relaxation and stress management techniques for the body and mind as well as skills training for anger and problem solving .
