About Me

Meera Asrani

Hello and welcome aboard! I am a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist.

Qualifying as an Integrative Psychotherapist in 2011, I have embraced the Humanistic and Psychodynamic approaches in my practice for over a decade.

During therapy the client and the therapist journey together and explore the world of emotional awareness. I help clients navigate the path of self-actualisation and help them in an empathetic and safe space.

The approach I take is investigative and demystifying – it’s a traditional method designed to help people course through their daily social and situational interactions with ease, composure and security. The aim is to facilitate reflective self-examination in order to experience change.

While the end of the road is not always clearly visible, the key is to keep going.

Why seek therapy

Our emotions, thoughts and actions have a direct effect on our energy, productivity and overall health. Taking care of our mental health strengthens our ability to cope with everyday stressors and handle challenges more effectively.

Therapy isn’t just for those who are struggling with mental illness. It can be beneficial for anyone who is experiencing stress, intense emotions or life transitions and want to improve their life.

Reaching out to a therapist is a significant step toward the path of self-care. The sooner you seek help, the faster you can get back on track.

Some of the signs it’s time to get professional help:

Experience. Explore. Evolve.

Meet your Uninhibited Authentic Self

Not knowing where to begin can be overwhelming. Most of the times, the Internet has us believing that we are going through emotional and mental health issues. However understanding our quirks, worries, and struggles might require a little more than online research. What one is looking for is a patient, attentive and empathetic listener especially a non-judgmental one, with whom we can safely share our feelings, and thoughts.

This is where I come in. I help break the barriers of the mind and facilitate healing from within.

You can sign up as an Individual, Couple, Family or for Group sessions.

My Expertise

Life coaching

Clarify your goals, identify the obstacles, learn to strategise and take charge to finally achieve them.


Talk therapy provides you with a safe, non-judgmental place to discuss your experiences, explore your options and develop the skills to handle challenges.


Therapeutically working through one's feelings, in order to cope more effectively with various circumstances.

Therapy is for everyone who wants to do it. I work with a wide range of age groups, from young adults and teens to adults and the elderly.

Therapy works differently for everyone. It is important not to compare your journey with someone else’s.

Having said that the amount of therapy you may need is based on:

  • The nature, severity and duration of the presenting circumstance
  • Individual resilience and coping style 
  • Amount of social support you have
  • Current life stresses

Some problems respond to brief therapy approaches, while others will require a longer period of time. More intensive therapy could be required to achieve relief, healing and change. 
It is important to just begin and give it a try.

One of the key reasons are health & safety. Online therapy allows us to limit social interaction as we collectively work towards keeping clients, their families, the community safe during the COVID 19 pandemic. 
However, it also gives access to those who cannot get access to therapy in person due to varying circumstances. And it allows you to get help no matter where you are.

Yes, there are many benefits to online therapy.

Many clients have reported that they prefer the ease of access of online therapy. They can receive support, from any part of the world. Parents have also found it helpful for themselves or their children, as it does not require them to leave the home to receive support. They can connect with their therapist from anywhere in the world so there is continuity of care.

It also saves time. Online therapy is a sure way to save time that would have been spent on traveling to and fro. Post our session, I encourage  you to use your commute time on a meditation practice, journaling your thoughts, reading a book, doing home-based yoga, etc.

The contents of all therapy sessions remain completely confidential. I will not share any identifying details about you, or our conversations. There are some exceptions to our confidentiality agreement that are mandated by law:

1. If I have reason to believe that you are likely to pose immediate harm to yourself or others.

2. If I have become aware of ongoing sexual abuse, child abuse or elderly abuse; and substance abuse in minors. 

In any of these instances, I will be compelled to break confidentiality and warn the appropriate authorities/persons. For the most part, I will discuss this with you before taking any such measures. However, in certain circumstances, I may have to break confidentiality to protect you or others without your express knowledge at that time.

Let's Embark on this Journey Together

Integrative therapy

It is my belief, that, we cannot look at the mind singularly. Nourishment in form of food, exercise, mindful breathing techniques and general lifestyle play a big role in our overall wellness.

Constantly Updating

I am a learner who is continuously doing courses and updating my knowledge of the profession, incorporating my learnings and current researches in my practice.

Simple and safe

The heart of my practice is careful and attentive listening. I interact with my clients using non-technical language and asking simple questions. The setting is easeful and conversations are confidential.

My Process

Therapies That I Use


Person-centred Therapy

You take charge of your own process and work towards self-actualisation within a safe and healthy therapeutic relationship.


Psychodynamic Therapy

Exploring the impact of early childhood experiences on long-term patterns of emotion, thought, and behaviour.


Relational Therapy

Understanding the role and impact of important relationships in your life, including ours, and looking at patterns of relating to the self and others.


Emotional Freedom Techniques

EFT tapping exercises combine elements of cognitive restructuring and exposure techniques with acupoint stimulation. The technique instructs individuals to tap on meridian endpoints of the body. While tapping, specific phrases are said that target an emotional component of a physical symptom.


Art Therapy

Under my guidance, as an art therapist, we “decode” the nonverbal messages, symbols, and metaphors often found in an artwork created by you during the session. No artistic talent is necessary for art therapy to succeed, because the therapeutic process is not about the artistic value of the work, but rather about finding associations between the creative choices made and your inner life. The artwork can be used as a springboard for reawakening memories and telling stories that may reveal messages and beliefs from the unconscious mind.


Breathwork and Visualisation

Non-verbal tools that allow me to bring in alternative means of exploration and expression in the therapy sessions, offering us a gentle way to uncover unconscious material and also heal.

Benefits for you

Together, we can overcome

And much more...

What My Clients Say

Names have been changed for confidentiality

"The first words that come to my mind when i think of Meera are 'Trusted Advisor'. She is helping me sail through the toughest phase of my life, and not only me but my children too so that they grow up with lesser baggage and are free to fulfill their potential fully. Empathetic, non-judgmental, patient listener are some of her assets which make her such a great counselor. Accessibility is another key plus which makes me reach out to her when darkest of thoughts hit me. Her ability to hear out my overlapping thoughts and woes and taking a step back in silence before coming back after critical thinking on her feet with simple yet effective solutions amazes me. I trust her with my kids who are the world to me and she has a way to win trust of growing adults who find it difficult to stand still in this ever changing world. Ships don't sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. I need to equip myself with not letting what's happening around me to get inside me and weigh me down. We all need and deserve to travel light. Thank you for walking me home Meera."
"In the past three years, I have consulted multiple mental health professionals and it never seemed to work out. But with Meera, it was an instant click. Since the very first call, she was a perfect balance between professional and amicable. During our sessions, she is extremely receptive and always navigates therapy to suit my needs as a teenager. I have had immense progress in the past three months of her being my therapist and I'm looking forward to my ongoing journey of healing."
"My sessions with Meera had been so helpful. She made me feel more confident and perceive my thoughts in a positive way which I really struggled with intially. She was more of a friend who genuinely tried to help me which was why I could express my emotions with ease and feel very connected."
"Meera is such a warm therapist and she really cares for the client. Meera is non-judgmental, a no-nonsense person and provides a completely safe space to discuss any issue.
I started talking to Meera only when there were any “problems” which was around 7 years ago, now I talk to her regularly and it really has given me so much clarity and has massively improved my quality of life. I foresee myself talking to her her for a long time as therapy does help me grow from strength to strength.
Meera helps the clients with practical, realistic thoughts. I have recommended her to a couple of friends who have also been very happy with her and continue to be her clients. Wishing you nothing but the best Meera! Sending lots of good wishes and keep up the good work!"
"My mental health has undergone a drastic transformation for the better. I have evolved into a more secure, confident and self reliant individual. I have learnt to look beyond my trauma and set healthy and effective boundaries with people around me. I am continually growing and evolving and meera always nudges me into the right direction and is always there to help me pick up the pieces and keep going. She helps me detangle my muddled thoughts, builds and reaffirms my trust in myself and brings clarity in my thoughts and actions. I have come so far and have a long way to go and I plan to do it with meera by my side."
"I had just 2 sittings with Meera, but she makes you comfortable instantly. She is a super listener and has a very soothing voice. Gives practical solutions, understands emotions and treats very professionally. She is the perfect counselor."

Grace, Guidance and gratitude.

I chose the lighthouse as my logo as this is what a lighthouse symbolizes for me. The beam of the lighthouse, continuously revolving like a beacon of hope, reminds me of the power of light of consciousness within all of us.

Growing up in the coastal city of Chennai, the love and admiration for the ocean had a major influence on my journey. No matter what the season, the constancy of the lighthouse standing guard on the shore, was a reassuring reminder for me to let go of my fears and continue on my journey of self-discovery and healing. In my journey so far, there have been many kind people who have stood beside me and guided me just as the lighthouse does to many travelers in this world. Hence, I decided to pursue psychology and have dedicated my life to become a lighthouse to others around me.
