Alongside her clinical work, Dr Prajapati is a published author and visiting lecturer to doctorate training courses. She also offers supervision to psychologists and mentoring to aspiring and trainee psychologists from racially minoritised backgrounds, and consultation and training to staff working in community services.
Dr Prajapati integrates knowledge from a range of evidence-based models including Compassion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment therapy, Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Narrative Therapy. Her personal and professional experiences have shaped her passion for working with individuals in a way that values their lived experiences, social and cultural contexts, and embraces their layered identities through a non-pathological and trauma-informed lens.
Her work is also informed by community psychology, the Power Threat Meaning Framework and Internal Family Systems. Through her sessions, Dr Prajapati aims to offer a compassionate and respectful therapeutic space that enables individuals to build upon their own strengths and move towards a life of meaning and harmony.
