(Founder & Chief Counsellor)
Sandhya Rani is the founder and Chief Counsellor at Consolace. She is a trained and qualified counsellor who has been into professional counselling since the last eight years. She says, if you need happiness to enter your life, you have to release the sorrow first. After doing her Postgraduate Diploma in counselling from Kerala University and completing the MSW course, she decided to put her knowledge into practice. Dealing with a range of people and their distinct issues at workplace helped her develop an individual approach to deal with various issues. In the light of her past experience of working as a part-time counsellor in premium institutions like Kendriya Vidyalaya, Pattom, (Trivandrum), Bharathiya Vidhya Bhavan, Kodunganoor (Trivandrum) and as a counsellor in association with Blood Bank, Medical College, Trivandrum, she began to carry on with counselling practice by opening up her own clinic in 2012. According to Sandhya, each person has their own battles to fight and emotional wounds to tend to. The most vulnerable are the children and thus their issues need special attention. It is for this reason that her main priority has always been family and child counselling. Depression and anxiety, anger management, work and career related issues, family issues, parenting issues and relationship issues are some of the areas that she deals with. With a commitment to bring a positive difference in the lives of people, she makes use of her diverse experience to offer voluntary counselling to various voluntary organisations in Trivandrum.
