Reema Qamar, MC
Registered Clinical Counsellor
My name is Reema. I have an MA in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I am professionally trained in working with individuals, couples, and families who are suffering from unresolved trauma. I believe in honoring the uniqueness of every individual’s journey in fulfilling their true potential as a human being. As we attain to become the best version of ourselves, I feel we each hold the potential to heal through our inner strength and wisdom.
I provide compassionate support and guidance for clients with mental health concerns. My focus is on fostering a warm and safe space, free of judgement. My approach emphasizes that with validation, compassion, and trust in the therapeutic relationship, I can help individuals heal from past traumas and support them in navigating through their emotional complexities.
I use a holistic approach to healing combined with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a developmental lens that is strongly influenced by Bruce Perry’s work in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics. This approach allows me to gain insight into a client’s unique experiences, motivations, perspectives, and thought and behaviour patterns to offer a personalized healing experience.
I also integrate a trauma-informed, culturally responsive, and social justice lens as I have worked with marginalized populations and vulnerable groups. My approach also integrates an understanding of attachment and experiential aspects into treatment. Sometimes people need to express their true feelings and unpack emotional experiences about life challenges they may be facing. It is my hope to work alongside my clients to help them explore effective ways to cope and achieve conflict resolution with care, empathy, and non-judgment.
I welcome the opportunity to support you on your journey towards personal growth and well-being. Whether you're seeking to navigate life transitions, manage stress, or cultivate a deeper sense of self-awareness, I'm here to help.
