Hey Folks, This is Jasmine Kaur Ahluwalia. I am Mental Health Counsellor, Therapeutic Movement Facilitator and an Expressive Arts therapy Practitioner. My Practice is trauma informed, Queer Affirmative, Person centered and revolves around Feminist approach. I have facilitated both online and offline therapy sessions for a diverse range of groups and individuals, including children, adolescents and adults for various mental health concerns and self-exploration during my internships.
I am also a member of the Licensure and Policy Committee of the Indian Association of Dance Movement Therapy (IADMT) and a Community Well-being Ambassador at Light-up Foundation and Unbottle Emotions.
In my opinion, Mental health and its wellbeing are nothing but self-care, a ritual that needs to be considered a necessity for it may help a person achieve their full potential along with an ability to give their fullest to the self, the family and the community. On the top of that, Emotional knowledge can help a person in understanding psychological responses to specific anxieties, resulting in the owning up of one’s emotions and acquiring a better grip over them, and thus making emotional wellbeing a way of leading a more aware and mindful life. Also, I reckon that all creative art modalities, be it dance, drama, visual arts or poetry writing, etc., have the inherent power to engage one’s true self.
Personally speaking, I love dancing, reading novels and watching K-dramas on Netflix in my Me-Time.
