She has worked with child and adolescent mental health services (NHS, England), mainstream schools, psychiatric secure care units, private sector mental health providers, youth offender institutes, prisons, substance abuse units, and the British Ministry of Defense.
She has worked with individuals experiencing a number of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, autism, learning disabilities, psychopathy, personality disorders, psychotic disorders, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Mitra uses a client-centered holistic approach, mainly informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Multisystemic Therapy (MST). To guide her approach, she also does psychometric and psychological assessments. In her therapy work with couples, she uses the Gottman Method Couples Therapy. She provides her clients with the suitable psychological tools and methods to achieve their full potential and ultimate goals.
Mitra is passionate about helping children and adolescents realize their full potential academically, emotionally and psychologically.
Mitra believes that all individuals are different and there is no one-size-fits-all therapeutic approach when concerned with mental health issues. It is essential to formulate the correct intervention that each individual requires, based on their past experiences, behavioural patterns, diagnoses, cultural background and beliefs.
