Farhana Adatia, MACP

Passionate. Creative. Calm.
These are the words that my loved ones use most to describe me.

My experience in the field of mental health started at the University of Guelph where I volunteered as a Peer Counsellor for the Student Support Network while completing my Bachelor degree. I worked as an autism support assistant and as a wellness education facilitator during the years.

I completed my Master of Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. This included an 8 month intensive practicum at The Power of You, Sandy Joy Registered Psychotherapist. During this internship, I trained in working with clients through trauma and betrayal trauma.

As a BIPOC therapist, I endeavor to integrate topics of oppressions, marginalization, patriarchy, racism and more into therapy as the client sees fit.

Second, I aspire to provide therapy for those who give so much of themselves to others. Helpers, frontline workers, and therapist are special populations which I hope to support and provide psychoeducation to on topics of compassion fatigue and burnout.

 

It is an honour to be witness to every client's story. I look forward to hearing yours.
