Rosita Ratnarajah

I am currently a practicum student from Yorkville University nearing the completion of a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree. I previously obtained a Bachelor of Sciences degree in Life Sciences (Psychology stream) from McMaster University and a postgraduate certificate in Clinical Research from Michener Institute. I also completed two years of basic sciences towards a medical degree before realizing my passion for helping others through talk therapy. I re-examined my goals and was inspired to embark on a career in psychotherapy. My recent experience includes volunteer work as a Crisis Responder with Kids Help Phone. I am trained in suicide intervention and can provide suicide first aid. Additionally, I hold a student membership with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) as well as with the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP).

I am passionate about helping people who are struggling in their everyday lives to recover and regain their mental health. To encourage personal growth and resilience, I intend to work collaboratively with clients to help them help themselves. This includes identifying unhelpful patterns of thinking and behaviour, looking at the impact on feelings, identifying core beliefs, and using positive approaches that accentuates strengths and solutions. I strongly believe in making people feel safe and supported through empathy and compassion. I trust that this would facilitate in building authentic relationships with clients which would further allow me to work with them on their therapeutic journey. I am excited to provide service to individuals and their families as part of my training.

Likewise, I enjoy spending time with my family and going on long walks while listening to music. I love to travel, learn about new cultures, and try different types of food.
