She completed her doctorate in clinical psychology (DClinPsych) in 2006 at Bristol University and has been specialising in working with children and adults with Autistic traits for over 10 years.
India is aware of the critical importance of personal reflection and personal development in supporting others to reach their life, educational and happiness potential. She has a strong personal commitment to her own learning, including keeping up to date on effective interventions and the evidence base for them. She works with young people and adults, with great success.
She also pursues and implement personal strategies for maintaining psychological, emotional and physical balance and robustness. This includes weekly supervision and her own therapeutic process in which she has been engaged for the last ten years, as she does not believe she can take anyone further than she has gone herself. These are invaluable inputs to her effectiveness, complementing and extending her training; they are the backbone of her ability to offer insight, empathy, compassion and unconditional support as she works with young people and adults with Autism Spectrum traits and their families, to implement simple, practical but profoundly effective techniques to address and overcome their difficulties.
