About Solafa Ahmed

Salam and hello. A client once shared a quote by Ram Dass that resonated with me: “We’re all just walking each other home.” Every time I “walk a client home,” I feel honoured. I believe that everyone is born with an immense amount of strength, but it can be hard to see your strength when you are going through a hard time. My work as a psychologist is built on the foundation of a trusting relationship, non-judgmental space, and the positive regard I offer to my clients. I work collaboratively with my clients, supporting them in acknowledging and embracing their strengths and moving gently towards change.

My passion for helping others has made my counselling journey an exciting one. For me, helping is about meeting my clients where they are and creating a safe space that allows for vulnerability. My work provides opportunities for people to express their feelings, thoughts, and worries, and in return I offer kindness and expertise. Together with my clients, I assess readiness for change and provide the help necessary to make decisions and take action.

My therapeutic lens is strengths-based and compassionate; I appreciate and attune to individuals’ diversity, culture, and experiences. My experience across various countries and cultures affords me a unique understanding of intersectionality and minority identities and my focus on client strengths creates positive change for those who are struggling. I am able to offer counselling services in both English and Arabic.

In the counselling room, I draw from Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. I work with my clients to find the general approach and specific interventions that make the most sense for them and their situation. My clinical areas of interest are anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, relationships, and religion and spirituality. I enjoy working with adults and couples.

I look forward to meeting you, hearing your story, and building a genuine relationship wherein you can trust me to walk you home!

I speak
