Malavika Chatterjee

My name is Malavika Chatterjee. I have been providing Geriatric and Young Adult Counseling since 2012. With my focus on health rather than illness, I use my open-mindedness and intuition to make a difference in my clients’ lives.

My story began long before I became a counselor. Through my 16-year long career in the banking industry, what kept my going was the opportunity to connect with people.

 I could bond with people and enjoyed being in roles that led me to create those strong relationships. I was fascinated by how humans react the way they do and started digging deeper. This was where my journey as a counselor began.

I started studying human behavior and as everything came so spontaneously to me, there was no looking back. With my learning as a caregiver to my in-laws for almost a decade and by acquiring knowledge from my education, I was able to make a difference in so many lives.

I have served over five hundred older and young adults who were in need of a positive change in their lives. I have rather built lifelong alliances on trust that continue to keep them in the beautiful mental state of well-being they deserve.
The Happy Mirror was the result of my passion for Geriatric and Young Adult mental welfare and my desire to address the major deficit meaningfully.
