-About Me

I am Asiya Shaikh, Founder and Owner of Nafs Healing Inc.

It is important to me that you feel safe exploring your issues in a non-judgmental and inclusive environment. Because in a safe space you can uncover your emotional needs, realize your hidden potential and optimize your life. I see therapy as a journey, can I be your fellow traveller on the road towards your holistic healing ?

I sense that finding a therapist can be hard, yet I hope this is the beginning of a positive journey for you. I am a Registered Psychotherapist  who has been working in the Mental Health field for over 15 years. I am trained in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) as a practitioner, which research has proved to be cost-effective to clients, as they heal within 2-5 sessions. In addition, I have certifications in ACT, CBT, REBT, NLP, Person-Centered, Somatic techniques, Trauma counselling, etc. As a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator, I also work collaboratively with parents who are overwhelmed and struggling with many aspects of parenting. I have completed a 4-year ‘Alimmiyah’ program and upon request, I can facilitate spiritually-integrated therapy sessions in English, Urdu and Hindi too.

I believe that the key to healing is not just knowing what happened but transforming how the body, mind, heart, soul and spirit still remember it. Healing is reclaiming your true inner Self, of who you actually are: whole, worthy and lovable.

If you are struggling with Trauma, Depression, Anxiety, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Phobias or other psychological issues or if you are looking just to improve the quality of your life, then you have come to the right place. I see every client as an ‘amanah’ – a sacred trust, I hope that my work can benefit You in your journey towards wholeness. Let me help you discover the treasures that you have inside You.
