Saleha Javed

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

I am a huge advocate for seeking help through challenging phases in our life. It is normal to experience complicated emotions and feel lost and disconnected sometimes. It is monumental to understand that struggling with mental health does not make us weak but makes us normal!

 

If you have a mind- you have mental health, and we all struggle with mental and physical health at some point. I am a firm believer in the mind-body connection- our body ascertains and embodies the signs when we are struggling.

 

Therapy is a journey filled with stories, memories, moments of realization and self-discovery. As we embark on this journey, I will help you raise more awareness about yourself and build a better relationship with your truest self.

 

After working in England for 4 years with adolescents and young adults. I went back to Pakistan where I worked extensively with the same age group. I helped young individuals struggling with Addiction, Anxiety, Body Dysmorphia, Depression, Eating Disorders and helped them explore their gender and sexuality.

 

I understand that exploring parts of yourself can feel very isolating when people around you are not ready to support you during this journey. Through therapy, I can help you explore these pivotal moments in your life while maintaining a sense of security in your relationships.

 

I see life in phases, and we’re not always equipped with the gear to handle the complexities life brings our way. Therapy can be a catalyst for developing lifelong skills and a gateway to becoming a more mindful, resilient and aware version of yourself. 

 

The main purpose of my work is to provide adolescents, young adults and their families with high-quality personalized therapy. I maintain a client-focused, culturally sensitive, integrative therapeutic approach. I work from a place of transparency and collaboration and believe in creating a warm, non-judgemental, safe space for my clients in order to empower them to achieve their goals.
