About Me

Hello -

My approach to therapy is based on the conviction that our current behaviors are a function of our system and relationships with others. I try to learn from my client's experiences to develop a better understanding of who they are, how they developed their sense of self, their worldview, and behavior. Together, I believe we can identify and overcome the obstacles that prevent you from living the life you desire. I customize my extensive training to best suit your healing and goals. I combine cognitive behavioral and experiential techniques in working with individuals, couples, children, and families. I approach counseling from a systemic view point and incorporate CBT and solution-focused perspective with the focus on helping clients create solutions to problems they may face.

Tahreer has helped me so much already and we’ve only been in contact a couple weeks. She gets back to me quickly with amazing help and advice. She takes the time to listen and support me.
Her help and advice has started to change my mindset already and I’m sure within time my mindset will completely and stop me overthinking and worrying.

Tahreer's counselling has changed my life, I can see what was driving my anxiety and I can see what I need to work on for the first time in 20 years. I'm not just brushing it under the carpet as inconsequential, I'm facing it and working on it. She has made me see that it's real and that I am worth someone spending this time helping me.

Had two video appointments so far and my impression is very good. Tahreer asks hard questions in a calm manner, lets me take time to think it over and I never feel judged. She is calm, kind and professional but strict and keeps it real.

Tahreer Ahmad is a fantastic listener, she is patient, and she helps me understand my choices in a way that supports and encourages me to grow in a safe environment. I choose audio only, because it helps me stay in touch with myself, and she is always attentive and compassionate. 10/10 would recommend!

You are in excellent hands with Tahreer. She is caring, kind and overall I really appreciated her approach to therapy. Talking with her weekly helped me learn to see my value and set boundaries with others.

Tahreer is an amazing listener! She gives thoughtful responses while also gently challenging to you think differently through reflective assignments.

I’m very fortunate to have her as my counsellor! She took me from a state of crying everyday to never being happier and loving myself more everyday. She taught me that true self love comes from confronting your past and validating your emotions. She is very supportive throughout the process and let’s you know that she is also available to send a message to outside your therapy session.

I was nervous to start therapy as I wasn’t sure “how” to do it. Tahreer made, and continues to make it “comfortable “. She directs the sessions and the fear / anxiety I had about talk therapy is completely gone. I find myself looking forward to my sessions and would highly recommend Tahreer (and have)

Written by A.S. on Jul 30, 2020 after therapy with Tahreer for 6 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, eating disorders, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, career difficulties, and coping with life changes

You'd be very lucky to have Tahreer as your counsellor. I can't thank her enough for patiently walking me through my mind and helping me see myself and my life clearly. She is supportive, accommodating, genuinely caring and very personable! She's always been there as prompt as possible to respond to me through the week, and also takes the time to check in between sessions. She has a talent for getting to the root of your problem when you can't see it yourself, and helps to untangle it. For the first time in a very long time, I am depression and anxiety free thanks to her help. I could go on for days, but I'm just grateful I let her help me.

Written by N.I. on Apr 14, 2020 after therapy with Tahreer for 2 months

Tahreer is very easy to talk to, she provides excellent recommendations, listens and has a talent for uncovering problems that I have difficulty communicating. She is flexible with her availability, is understanding and empathetic. I love that she checks in with me and talks to me on a very human level. Her approach to using self-healing or naturopathic measures fits well with my own philosophies, therefore I couldn’t recommend her enough.

I enjoyed my time with Tahreer. I felt an instant connection and rapport that was very reassuring.

Tahreer's advice and guidance was reasonable and grounded in current therapeutic practices. I can't recommend Taheer enough!
