My name is Afraa Akasha (She/Her) and I am a Mental Health Therapist with a Masters in Counselling Psychology with a designation of a Certified Canadian Counsellor (C.C.C). I was born in Sudan and moved to Canada when I was a child. I became a counselor because I am curious about people and their stories and how you can learn to better manage your mental health and improve your overall well-being through therapy. I believe the therapeutic environment needs to be holistic, inclusive, and anti-oppressive, and can take into account your lived experiences and intersectionality For my therapeutic approaches; I draw on a variety of counseling approaches that are trauma-informed, Strengths-based, Single Session therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and EMDR, shifting approaches based on each person’s individual needs.
