AKASH MOHAN
Associate Consultant

Akash therapist

Akash Mohan (pronoun he/him) is a trained psychologist, a trained practitioner of queer affirmative counselling and a trained trauma-informed mental health practitioner. He has completed his Master in Applied Psychology from the School of Human Ecology, Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai, specialising in Clinical and Counselling Practice (2019-2021); Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the School of Behavioural Sciences, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala (2016-2019); Trained in Queer Affirmative Counselling Practice from Mariwala Health Initiative, Mumbai (2021, April/May Cohort); Sexuality and Sexual Counselling from Alternative Stories, Bangalore (2020). In addition, he is pursuing a Certification in Trauma-Informed Care from the School of Human Ecology at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai (2022).

– He is a mental health professional who approaches his clients from a trauma-informed, strength-based perspective that emphasises adaptation over symptoms and resilience over pathology. As a mental health professional, he believes that the best way to support someone’s mental health is through mental health practice, which cannot ignore the experience of marginalisation and oppression that person has gone through. He uses a postmodern narrative-oriented approach to therapy, which he combines with other modalities, to understand and work with the systemic and social/structural factors that affect mental health, such as the intersection of gender and sexuality, caste, disability, and other forms of oppression, aiming to move away from reductionist and individualistic ways of thinking and toward an intersectional way of thinking, with the goal of making new stories about how mental health practises work.
