Insession Counselling


Culturally Responsive Therapy

Home: Welcome

Hi, I'm Sanduni

I'm the founder of Insession Counselling and a senior mental health counsellor & psychologist. I'm a South Asian (Sri-Lankan) Woman of Colour with over 10 years experience in the mental health field. I started Insession Counselling to create a practice where therapy is tailored to people from all cultural backgrounds, gender identities and sexual orientations so that you are seen fully, understood deeply, and feel safe in your experience of therapy


I strive to develop trusting and dependable therapeutic relationships, where we collaboratively explore the complex & subtle nuances of your life experiences, family dynamics, upbringing, belief systems, cultural background and identity that define how you see the world today.  


I'm a queer child of immigrants who grew up with a mixture of South-Asian and Australian values. Navigating my own experiences of marginalisation and intersectionality has allowed me to truly understand how culture, race, colonisation, gender and sexuality shape so much of who you are and your experiences in the world. I combine this lived experience with evidence-based psychological interventions so that the therapy you receive is tailored specifically to your needs and leads to long lasting change.
