Ashmin Pillay

Clinical  Logotherapist-healing through meaning/ individual psychotherapy

Ashmin PillayAshmin believes in preserving the rights and the dignity of human beings; strongly believing that no individual is without value regardless of who you are or where you’ve been. 

I believe that knowing the heart of your therapist, i.e, someone who shares your values means a deeper, more objective insight into every capability/every opportunity to become what you have been created to be, which will bring you healing, and the joy to be able to live a meaningful and purposeful life.

Ashmin Pillay’s approach and implementation of Logotherapy, is in essence best described as:,
The Journey of life which is reminiscent to a palette of colored paints splattered on the floor.  You being the artist, life being the blank canvas, and the belief that within you lies the power to create your own unique masterpiece!  The artist transformation of life’s adversities and purpose is to create a valuable unique painting appreciated and valued by all, including the artist.

My practical/personal experience and interaction with many fallen palettes of grey;
With the ability/skill/principles of Logotherapy, whose aim is not to save, but rather to heal/cure the broken soul!
Furthermore, I have equipped myself and beyond with the ability to communicate and offer my services with a part of our society often left out in the cold being ‘the silent group in our community/Deaf and Mute.
Ashmin believes the challenge here is in overcoming life’s adversities/ the quest for answers/ is to be fully equipped with the tools to help you navigate/envision and resonate in the person you are meant to become!

Imagine a ray of light coming from behind the clouds!
This is my approach and technique I have developed through Logotherapy.  The main aim is to develop a healthy spirit core in people, assisting and guiding them with the ‘Human’ Touch.
