Her approach towards career counseling is to ensure that children are enabled to take informed career choices for themselves. Parents and Teachers can serve as enablers and ensure that the child actually feels comfortable about his choice(s).

According to her, “Children are often praised for their achievements rather than their efforts. This creates undue stress for them, which can be diffused through parents’ and teachers’ encouragement. Children too need to be imbibed with skills which would help them in navigating times of uncertainty.”
