SHAILA
ANJUM

Registered Psychotherapist, 

Master of Counselling Psychology (In Practicum)

As someone who has previously struggled with trauma and understands how this can affect every aspect of your life, years into the future, I pay special attention to mental health. Experiencing traumatic events can make us feel anxious, depressed, stressed, and more. We then bring all of this with us to other areas of our lives, impacting personal and professional relationships. Oftentimes, we don't realize this impact until we see the negative effects of it. 

  

My own journey has pushed me to seek resources and education regarding mental wellbeing. With over five years of clinical work experience, I continue to expand my knowledge to help others use tools best suited to tackle what they are battling with. My journey to healing was very unique, and I know yours is too. Together, I aim to bring a collaborative approach to help you get to where you want to go. In our collaboration, we will create a safe and open space for you to explore your true self and build the roadmap to your happiness.  

 

I look forward to connecting with you!
