Helai Alikouzeh
Registered Social Worker, Psychotherapist


Helai Alikouzeh is a compassionate therapist dedicated to helping individuals thrive and find true healing. She holds a diploma in Social Service Work from Seneca College and furthered her education to obtain a Bachelor of Social Work from Ryerson University. With a deep understanding that conventional Social Work practices often fall short in addressing profound traumas, Helai has taken a unique path, combining spiritual and body psychotherapy with the best social work practices. Drawing from personal experiences of overcoming abuse, bullying, toxic family dynamics, mental health challenges, and an identity crisis, Helai brings a fresh and modern perspective to talk therapy.

As a second-generation Afghan Canadian, she has faced and triumphed over various challenges, shaping her into a therapist with a genuine passion for supporting others. Believing in a holistic approach, Helai takes into account the connection between mind, body, and spirit. She creates a personalized therapy journey through techniques like subconscious healing, belief transformation, inner child work, the release of trapped emotions, and chakra balancing. Additionally, she incorporates evidence-based modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) to ensure a well-rounded approach. Cultural diversity and inclusivity are at the core of Helai’s practice. She deeply respects and honours individual backgrounds, valuing each person’s unique stories and experiences. Creating a safe and inclusive space is a top priority, allowing clients to feel truly seen and heard.

Helai’s therapeutic approach is rooted in authenticity and accountability. She firmly believes in being honest and straightforward with her clients, never sugar-coating difficult conversations. With empathy and compassion, she challenges her clients to recognize where they have given their power and agency away to others or challenging situations. By fostering a sense of personal responsibility, she helps clients reclaim their power and create positive change in their lives. Helai’s work has profoundly impacted her clients, leading to empowerment, healing, and personal growth. The transformations she has witnessed inspire her to continue guiding others toward their goals and unlocking their full potential. Committed to ongoing professional development, Helai actively seeks out new knowledge and stays updated on the latest research and techniques in therapy. This dedication ensures that she provides the highest quality support to her clients.
