Hi! My name is Sidra and I am an intern therapist working under the supervision of a Registered Psychotherapist at The Counselling House.
I believe that each client comes with unique needs and therefore, use an integrative approach with evidence-based theories customized to fulfill the needs of each client. I provide counselling services from a culturally sensitive perspective and my counselling strategy is highly collaborative in nature. I believe that the client should be in the driving seat in the therapeutic process, and offer counselling support as a facilitator. I aim to bring out the best in my clients by taking a strength-based approach in counselling. I empower my clients by handing them some coping tools which they can use to deal with any struggles that they bring to the therapy room.
Through my non-judgmental approach, I create a safe space for my clients where they can uncover any unsettling thoughts and feelings. I welcome clients of all ages whose lives are affected by mental health issues, and provide online sessions for individuals, couples and families in English and Urdu. My sessions are free of cost with a one-time registration fee of $25 + HST.
