Richmond Counselling & Wellness Natasha Karim

About me:
From a young age I have found learning about people endlessly interesting. I find that it is immensely rewarding to see clients leave the therapy process with a renewed understanding of themselves and the desire to practice novel behaviours. I feel privileged to help enact change, hope and renewal through therapeutic relationships and this keeps me passionate about the work I do.

I counsel adolescents and adults within an individual, couple or family context. I help clients deal with issues such as anxiety, depression, addictions, grief/loss, conflict management, work stress, life transitions and self-esteem. My goal is to create a supportive and non- judgmental atmosphere in which clients feel safe and empowered to explore and address life’s challenges. By working collaboratively with each person I aim to accompany clients as they grow, thrive and discover their full potential during the course of therapy.

As the needs of each person are unique, I believe in creating a personalized therapeutic experience for each client. My therapeutic approaches consist of well-researched treatment approaches including: Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Positive Psychology and Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) for trauma. I understand that it can be difficult to find a time to come in for counselling, because of busy schedules. As such, I currently have availability in the evening and on Saturdays. It would be an honour to assist you in creating the enthusiasm-filled, satisfying life you deserve.
