Hello! I’m Farah Haq
I am a registered clinical counsellor. I would like to invite you as a client. My counselling practice includes child, youth, individuals and couples. Anyone who has experienced life challenges, trauma or grief in life, or those who are struggling to reconfigure their coping skills; are welcome…
I believe that regular counselling support can take us on a path of a more fulfilled life. I work with the belief that we all need to move on ahead in life with positive changes, enhanced personal understandings, and increased acceptance of our presence in life.
I offer a culturally inclusive, non-judgmental, and unbiased space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings regarding life challenges. If you choose me as your counsellor, I can help you resolve your triggers, and be more in control of your emotional well-being.
I like to think of myself as a lifelong learner of psychology. Being a counsellor is a passion, and privilege to me. I love to be a part of the cheering crowd as my clients continue on their marathon of life.
I have been a counsellor for over a decade. My therapeutic foundation is an integration of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused, and Person-Centred. I am also a registered Grief Counsellor and a Family Therapist. In addition to English, I can speak three Asian languages; Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi.
Outside of work, I enjoy reading books, listening to music, and spending time with family. I am also in the process of completing my PhD Psychology degree.
I understand that making the first call for counselling can be difficult. But I would like to remind you that all journeys start with a small but courageous initial step.
