MANISH SHEKHAR DASGUPTA / VICE-CHAIRPERSON

Hello! I am Manish, a Psychotherapist and a part-time teacher. I am also one of the Co-founders of Gulmohar Mental Health. I employ Humanistic-Existential and Psychodynamic therapy in my practice. I like to move alongside the client in therapy, using metaphors and elaborate imagery to understand and communicate, I like to employ an experiential modality. 

I love learning new things, reading, watching films and plays. I love travelling solo and meeting new people. I enjoy walks, cycling and gaming. I am quite fond of the outdoors- the mountains and skies, all the more if I am in the driver's seat.
