Hi I'm Shwetambara, Head Psychologist & Psychotherapist at LCHHS. I believe in all schools of thought, so long as it works for the person in need of relief.
I am a psychologist and psychotherapist with 17 years of practice, teaching, and consulting under my belt. I completed my bachelors and masters in psychology both at the top of my class and received national scholarship for it too. On finishing my internship at a mental hospital in Navi Mumbai, I plunged straight into active practice and simultaneously started my own practice in Bandra, Mumbai. I also took up attachments in various schools, corporates, clinics, and hospitals spreading knowledge about mental health.
Always one to enjoy challenges, I took up teaching Abnormal Psychology to TYBA students at a well-known college in Mumbai and continued to do so for five years. Today, I am proud to note that some of my students are counsellors at top schools and hospitals in the city.
Apart from practicing as a psychotherapist, I also writes a weekly column for The Indian Express called “matters of the mind”; one for Live Mint called “Honest Parenting” and posts short tutorials or interviews on social media to engage more and more people as far as mental health awareness is concerned.

What my clients say about me
Meeting Dr Shwetambara was serendipitous. I have been under her care for over 7 years now. I have a second lease on life because of her. Her gentle empathetic style of treatment is something that is inimitable. She has slowly surely and effectively guided me through my anxiety and helped me accept, adapt and transform as a person. To me meeting Dr Shwetambara was the biggest blessing!
Dr. Shwetambara Sabharwal did a session with a group of us and really showed us how to be conscious parents. Her ideas and tips were very practical and effective. Overall, excellent takeaways from the session for all. Besides ensuring positive outcomes for her clients, she is also passionate about promoting positive mental health in community .
She was part of a webinar that Mainadevi Bajaj International School conducted on being conscious of and handling the anxieties that children have around living out of their homes. Her in-depth knowledge of the issue, her experience in working with children and her sensitivity came across strongly during the webinar. I am happy to note that even after the webinar, she has continued to support our school community with advice and relevant material to be shared with our teachers, parents and students.
