Dr. Natasha Ramzan

Registered Clinical Psychologist & Social Worker

I understand it takes a lot of courage to begin and commit to therapy. I will provide a safe environment where we can work collaboratively to better understand your early life experiences, and the systems you have been exposed to throughout your life including family, different institutions, culture, and social norms.

 

Your life experiences can impact your core beliefs, and values, how you regulate your emotions, and how you react/respond to adverse life events. I believe in a holistic and anti-oppressive approach, considering biopsychosocial factors rather than just focusing on mental health diagnoses/symptoms. I bring my authentic self to each session, which includes compassion, curiosity, and at times, humour and laughs. 

A bit about myself, I am a registered social worker/psychotherapist in Ontario, Canada, and a licensed clinical psychologist in the United Kingdom (UK). 

 

I moved to Canada when I was ten years old. I am the eldest of four siblings. I have struggled with balancing dual cultural values (Canadian and Pakistani), which sometimes resulted in conflicts with my parents and led to experiencing anxiety and perfectionism.

 

However, I have learned to balance and embrace both cultures' values with time and have been managing my struggles with anxiety. I have always been passionate about spreading mental health awareness, especially within ethnic minority communities.

 

When I am not working, I love spending time with family and friends. I enjoy blogging about mental health, reading a good book, hiking especially during the fall season, and binge-watching Netflix. I also love travelling, which is my self-care.
