in Dubai.

Since 2004, Kavita successfully fulfilled the role of a trailing spouse and soccer mom while

relocating to Dubai, Mumbai, Malaysia and Singapore till date with a sense of pride,

confidence and resilience. The journey helped her excel in her interpersonal skills and the

ability to blend in culturally among international communities as an outcome of her children

being in that setup. She is a mother of 2 girls, aged 14 and 10 years old.

The journey of being in an expat circle for almost a decade, sparked a desire to be there

for people on a therapeutic level. She made a mid life career choice in 2014, by acquiring

a Graduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology (GDICP) from The College of Allied

Educators, Singapore.

The objective for acquiring a GDICP was to develop her diverse personal experience and

gain professional knowledge to enhance her psychosocial empath skills for the benefit of

others. Her internship and volunteer work with Care Corner Singapore (TGYC) has

sharpened her understanding at applying Choice Theory (CTRT) and Cognitive Behaviour

Theory(CBT) extensively among children and youth, few of whom were undergoing the

Guidance Program(GP).
