I, Harsharan Kaur Randhawa, M.A. in Psychology, IGNOU(2018), M.A. in English, Ravi Shankar University, Raipur, Chhattisgarh(1994), B.A. in Education from Guru Ghasidas University Bilaspur, Chhattisgarh(1996), BSc. in Biology from Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar(1992), came into the field of psychology just a few years back with an objective to create awareness in the society about the importance of mental well being of the individuals.
Before joining the field of psychology, I was a teaching professional. I have more than 20 years of teaching experience in schools. I feel that teaching and counseling always go hand in hand, therefore counseling has been a continuous process for me. My daily interactions with children and parents turned out to be effective counseling sessions with them.
During these interactions, I found that each and every individual around is suffering from one or the other psychological issues like stress, anxiety, depression and so on. I also came across the fact that people are suffering in silence, some even not knowing that they have a problem. This lead me to ponder over the thought as to how can I help the community and create awareness that along with our physical well being, our mental well being is of utmost importance as well.
Keeping this thought in mind I entered into the field of psychology and got Masters Degree in Psychology. Along with my friend and colleague, Meghna Singh, I started my own counseling centre, “PeaceOfMind Counseling Services” at Noida in Feb 2018. I am also proud to be a part of “United For Her”, an online platform for helping women who are living in distress due to some or the other psychological issues.
I am determined to continue my counseling efforts towards increasing awareness, up-liftment and betterment of the society at the same time exploring new opportunities to tie-up with like-minded people and organizations.
