Sundraj Sreenivasan trained as a counsellor after 21 years in the music industry. He works with clients experiencing problems relating to depression, panic attacks, anger, identity, relationships, sexuality, shame, loss, suicidal thoughts and self-harm. Music and entertainment industry specific challenges supported include: burnout, sudden fame, performance anxiety, stress, rejection, online abuse, career or financial uncertainty and body image.
“I worked closely with musicians and professionals; first at a major label and then running my own agency. I witnessed how, for many, the fear of seeking professional help meant problems were bottled up leading to poor mental health. I was one of them, until I got help. My own growth and development inspired me to retrain, so I could be someone you could trust and open up to, as a qualified professional.
My clinical work as a counsellor has been in a diverse range of settings; from the NHS’s IAPT service to a University and, a LGBTQ+ charity. My own background and specialist training has enabled me to be culturally informed and I take an affirmative approach to diversity in my practice.”
