Ms. Harshani Algiriya
Registered Mental Health Counsellor
BA, PG (Counselling), MA (Counselling), ACA – Level 3
I am an experienced counsellor with over 15 years of service as a mental health practitioner. I work with children, adolescents and adults from diverse cultural backgrounds who struggle with psychological and emotional trauma due to extraordinary stressful events in life. I have experience as a school counsellor and with adult students as a career counsellor.
As a migrant, I support new migrants in their transitioning and adapting to a new culture. I assist my clients to reach their goals through guidance and counselling by utilising my unique research and in-depth studies of settling in a new community.
As a mother of two adolescent children I am continuously working on researching new skills to face challenges to support adolescents for their smooth transition into exciting social changes while preserving their values. In addition, I support my clients to manage generational, cultural conflicts to reach their full potential with confidence.
My therapeutic approach involves a wide range of therapies and I work with my clients to understand which approach suits their needs and experience. My therapies include cognitive behaviour therapy, motivational counselling, eclectic counselling, life coaching, relationship counselling, integration counselling, person-centred therapy, and solution-focused.
I can speak English and Sinhalese with a good sense of cultural understanding.
