Adult – Individual/Couple | Rashi Gadekar

By: Rashi Gadekar  05-Apr-2012

I particularly enjoy my work with adults – individuals, couples or family groups. I believe we have so  many resources,  hidden and well-used at our disposal, and it is a professional joy to work with people to harness their particular strengths. I  appreciate also  sharing  and conveying those I learnt along the way myself, through study or through my work with others.

I have worked with people grappling with life changing events such as illness, death of a loved one, trangendering, changing relationships, parenting, experiences of trauma and abuse both as a perpetrators and survivors, experiences of  immigration, acculturation and racism, job loss, identity, adoption  and many other life experiences. Each story and  each person though, remains unique in terms of their tribulations, successes and what  they teach me about this work.

Couples or one of the partners, often seek therapy related to:

  • sexual issues - including sexual knowledge, interests, orientation, intimacy, mistrust, pornography-erotica, exploration

  • co-parenting/ step-parenting

  • “loving their partner but not being in love with them”

  • Financial difficulties

  • Addictions

  • Post-separation contact with children

Supervision and Mentoring | Rashi Gadekar

My preference is for the supervision hour to provide food for thought, some research or practice references to support those positions and a detailed clinical (or management, cultural, organisational) discussion on the basis of which to use new skills or dust off old ones.
