Hello and a warm welcome to my page!
Looking for a therapist and embarking on the journey of self-discovery and self-healing can feel difficult, so congratulations for taking this first step! If you are struggling with anxiety, low-mood, relationships or any other life challenges that you find difficult to cope with or make sense of, I am here to help. Get in touch and we will arrange an initial assessment to see how we can work together.
I am passionate about my work as a psychotherapist and I would be honored to accompany you on your journey of self-reflection, transformation and freedom from pain and suffering.
My therapy room is a safe and non-judgmental space where you will be met with warmth, openness and compassion. I facilitate my client's journey into uncovering their true self and transcending their difficulties by gaining a new and more meaningful perspective of their life story. We work together towards discovery and fulfillment of client's potentialities and aim to align their lives with their soul nature and heart desires.
The transpersonal integrative modality is at the core of my practice. I believe that we are all essentially spiritual beings and that there is much more meaning and depth to existence than the eye can see, and mind can comprehend. I carry the optimistic and positive attitude of the transpersonal approach into my practice, trusting that a higher purpose, an invitation for growth can be identified even in the midst of the darkest most painful experiences of life. The belief that symptoms are symbols, looking at pain with curiosity, and wondering what particular quality or change this particular challenge or even life crisis is calling forth in my client.
The belief that each person is as unique as their finger-prints is central to my practice. I work with my clients to help them discover their own individual inner and outer beauty and retrieve that special unique calling of their soul that they were born with. The work usually starts with identifying and breaking free from the layers of conditioning that are veiling their real, authentic self. Holding a genuine love and interest in the soul sitting behind the layers of wounding, and scripts, I facilitate a process of truce and becoming at peace with self. This will gradually establish a more secure, solid, accepting base within the client from which they are able to explore and enhance their connection to others.
Creativity is at the core of my therapy work. I specially enjoy working with dreams, drawing, facilitating imagery through body work, creative imagination, and expressions through breath and sound. These interventions work as a bridge to bypass the limitations of the mind, opening up to infinite possibilities held in the realm of imagery and symbolism. The awareness and clarity gained by these creative mediums are integral to the process of psycho-spiritual healing and transformation.
Above all, I work in a relational way. In my view, the foundation and most essential ingredient for any therapeutic work is the trusting alliance and connection between myself and my clients. This trust and ease in relationship is attained through a consistent experience of my reliability, empathic listening, full presence, and a genuine interest, care and love I hold for my clients. In time, clients come to the empowering realization that they, themselves, are true experts of their life journey as we explore and discover what lies ahead on their path.
I have extended experience working with anxiety, anger management, chronic fatigue, loss of meaning and purpose in life, relationship issues and lack of self-esteem. My particular interest and area of expertise is working with co-dependency, alcoholism and belonging.
Please note, I am bilingual and offer therapy in English and Persian (Farsi).
If you feel drawn to my way of working, do get in touch. I would love to hear from you.
