This is how I decided to become a professional counsellor despite having a different career; and how Enso Couselling came into being.
Enso’s journey started in an unlikely place: a dental clinic. When I finished my Master’s in Dental Surgery in 2005, little did I know that my career as a healthcare professional would lead me into the world of psychology.
After my MDS, I worked for a few years before co-founding the Whitefields Dental Clinic with my husband. But while working as a dental surgeon, it struck me just how much many of my patients needed to talk to me about problems in other areas of their lives. I started doing research into counselling techniques so I could help them better.
Making the change
The more I researched, the more interested I became in human psychology; I soon realized that this was actually what I really wanted to do! So setting aside my career in dentistry, I embraced a new one by doing my MSc. in Psychology. And in February 2019, Enso Counselling was born!
Today, Enso functions out of a small flat tucked away in the bylanes of Whitefieds, Hyderabad—sharing space with the Whitefields Dental Clinic that my husband still runs. We’ve tried to create a space that is warm, friendly and approachable because we believe that we all need to feel safe and comfortable before we can start healing. Hopefully, we’ve succeeded.
So if you ever need help in dealing with emotional issues in your life, or even if you just want someone to talk to, feel free to get in touch. I would be happy to help you begin your healing journey.
