Amar works with participants of all ages and specialises in working with adult participants presenting with severe and persistent mental illness including depression and anxiety, psychotic disorders, and personality disorders. Amar also has speciality in working with participants with backgrounds of Trauma, and Acquired Brain Injury.

Amar uses the asset-based community development (ABCD) model when working individually with clients. ABCD is a ‘bottom-up’ approach with its core principles being that everyone has strengths and assets, and that relationships build a community. Social workers as ‘connectors’ are responsible in ensuring participants are linked with their communities. Amar is also passionate about poststructuralist ideology and promotes social justice, and equal opportunity and access in his every day practice.
