Dr. Aruna Kulkarni

Dr. Aruna Kulkarni is a Child and Family Psychologist with a powerful insight into Human Behavior. Being a very humble person, Dr. Aruna prefers to look at her role as a facilitator rather than a counselor, and believes that the counseling sessions are more of a space provider to people to reflect and discover the potential within themselves and use it to sort their own issues rather than "get counseled". She is deeply committed to aiding people in the process of self-development.
Having graduated in Home Science with Child Development as her major subject, she went on to do her M.A. in Clinical Psychology and then her Doctorate in Counseling Psychology. She is a certified Trainer for MBTI and Golden Personality Type Profiler . She has also received a Certification from Sandvik, Stockholm (Sweden) as a Trainer for the Sandvik Global Leadership Program.
