How Shaheen Can Help

By using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), narrative therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness self-compassion therapy, and positive psychology, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Holistic Healing Counselling Therapists can help their clients by providing solutions-based counselling that centres on a holistic approach to individual issues. This all-encompassing method allows patients to truly dig down and find the cause of their suffering, which finally lets healing to begin. As the healing starts to take hold, life becomes more enjoyable and the issues that previously caused great distress in your life become manageable.

A Safe Space to Reflect, Learn, and Grow

Our counselling sessions are guided by empathy and understanding, and we work with our patients to find out what is truly causing their problems in life. Once we have narrowed down the root cause of your distress, we work towards instituting healthy coping mechanisms and goals that allow you to measure your progress as the sessions move forward. With us in your corner, you’ll have the tools and guidance you need to overcome your issues so you can begin to enjoy life again.
