Hey! Happy to see you here.

Counseling provides a safe space to the person, to share their thoughts and feelings leaving the fear of judgment behind. It provides a space to explore one's strength and gives a sense of strength to accept and acknowledge the challenges or issues. And above all working on these obstacles together with professional support gives a sense of safety, and support.

A bit about my approach to therapy

I believe healing happens on multiple levels, so hence I use a holistic healing approach. I practice healing Mind, body and Spirit. I use different forms of Arts, Mindfulness techniques along with CBT, to support and guide my clients to bring awareness to your thoughts and emotions which then helps them to change their actions to get out of an unhealthy behavior pattern.

What to expect in my first therapy session?

In my first session, I hold a safe space and build a non-judgmental bubble to help my clients to feel warm and safe. We discuss the challenges and obstacles they are experiencing and assess the impact on our daily lives or routine. Venting out and sharing helps to find an immediate release and a sense of calm. Later we discuss a few resources as coping mechanisms to help manage day-to-day emotions. Once at ease we then start working on the root cause to reach the highest self-potential, awareness, and self-empowerment.

Hi good morning,thank you for ur support and best coincling ever.After meeting you my All the tention get released.Now can handle all my problems easily,without any confusion and bravly because of you. Now I understand how to handle the situation. Thank you so much to you.

I was in a very poor state of mental health, was also lost on how to get on track. She guided me to through the process to being more aware of and in more control of my emotions. All my experiences were better than expected. Sakina always ensured I had a non judgmental safe space to discuss anything. With time she made me comfortable enough to share alot thoughts and emotions. Based on how it was helping me, I started recommending therapy to other people too. Overall it was a great experience and she's a great counselor.

Excellent service by Sakina ! She is patient, skill full and to top all of it she is lovely human. Sakina goes in depth and crosses the-extra mile bridge for her clients. I wish her all the best and highly recommend Sakina as your healer /counselor !!...less
