About Me – Raj Prasad
Licensed Professional Counsellor
I am a Fijian Indian and have been living in this country for last 30 years. I have worked as an engineer, however, it was always in my mind that one day I would work in the health industry.
My growing up in Diversional cultural environment has been very rewarding; this has opened me to perceive strong values to other religious and cultural needs. With my Fijian Indian background, it gives advantage for me to look at other cultural issues in-depth.
After leaving my engineering field, I went back to University to fulfil my dream. I studied Health Science, with majors in Diversional Therapy and Health Management. After finishing my Degree at University of Western Sydney, I started my postgraduate course in Master of Health Science. I always wanted to help other people, and to do that, after finishing my degree, I pursued my study and completed my counselling and became accredited counsellor. I am currently doing my postgraduate course in Lifestyle Medicine. I did further training in Lifeline Australia to work as volunteer. As an accredited counsellor, I am embarking my journey to help someone to achieve their goals. If I can help one person, I will feel that I have helped 100 others; this would be my biggest achievement.
I have been working in the health department for last 10 years, in 10 years, I have worked with most disadvantaged clients, disabled clients, adolescents, drug and alcohol, relationship and conflict, abused clients, addictions, mental health issues, grief and loss, brain acquired injury, marital issues and financial issues. With my coaching background, I am determined to improve the health of people who are diabetic and pre-diabetic.
My journey will continue to inspire other people who are going through difficult times.
I have high degree of patience and I am very dedicated to achieve goals for other people. As a determined athlete, I do know what it takes to achieve goals.
Your hard work and dedication is always the end result of richness.
I am an accredited counsellor, registered with Australian Counselling Association and also with Diversional Therapy Australia and Allied Health Professional Australia.
