My name is Haleh Samimi. I am a mental health counsellor with over 20 years of experience.
My practice centres on a simple idea:
The answers to life’s questions, problems, and challenges lie within ourselves. However, when we experience upheaval—emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual—we can become alienated and disconnected from ourselves.
My clients include children, youth and adults. The areas of challenges I have worked with include symptoms of:
Grief and Loss
Suicidal Ideation and Behaviour
Post Traumatic Stress symptoms
Obsessive Compulsive symptoms
Victimization/Poor Self Image
Job Related Stress
I work with people by asking questions and exploring new and innovative ways of looking at oneself, our ever-changing world, and the relationships in our lives. My clients have experienced life-long results, with a high rate of success. I believe this to be true because my method focuses on empowering people to heal themselves.
Education & Qualifications
I have a master’s degree in Counselling from the University of Saskatchewan. I am also certified in advanced Accelerated Resolution Therapy ®, Motivational Psychology®, Violence Threat Risk Assessment® (from CCTATR), Focus on Integrated Treatment® (from Hazelden), Trust Technique®, Suicide Prevention, Mediation and Conflict Resolution.
These certifications help my work to be solution focused—drawing from a wide range of experience to address the unique needs of each client. This solution-focused style also involves a brief treatment approach, which helps clients address their issues precisely and strategically.
