About Me

Salāmun ʿAlaykum!

I am Farzana, and I am thrilled to introduce myself as a passionate and empathetic Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). My mission is to help individuals navigate their emotional journeys and support them through their struggles. I am dedicated to creating a safe, non-judgmental space for clients to explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences. Every client is unique and therefore deserves to be treated with appropriate interventions for their presenting concern. I am looking forward to supporting individuals who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression and relational conflict.

Additionally, as an immigrant, I understand the challenges of adjusting and navigating through the experiences of being exposed to a different culture and way of life. I am pleased to offer support to individuals who are struggling with change and the stress and difficulties it comes with. Inshallah I look forward to working together with you to support you with reaching your goals. Please feel free to reach out in case you would like to learn more about my qualifications/approaches.
