Farah Haq

Hello, my name is Farah Haq and I am a registered clinical counsellor. I would like to invite you as a client. My counselling practice includes child, youth, individuals and couples. Anyone who has experienced life challenges, trauma or grief in life, or those who are struggling to reconfigure their coping skills; are welcome...

I believe that regular counselling support can take us on a path of a more fulfilled life. I work with the belief that we all need to move on ahead in life with positive changes, enhanced personal understandings, and increased acceptance of our presence in life.

I offer a culturally inclusive, non-judgmental, and unbiased space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings regarding life challenges. If you choose me as your counsellor, I can help you resolve your triggers, and be more in control of your emotional well-being.

I like to think of myself as a lifelong learner of psychology. Being a counsellor is a passion, and privilege to me. I love to be a part of the cheering crowd as my clients continue on their marathon of life.

I have been a counsellor for over a decade. My therapeutic foundation is an integration of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused, and Person-Centred. I am also a registered Grief Counsellor and a Family Therapist. In addition to English, I can speak three Asian languages; Urdu, Hindi and Punjabi.

Outside of work, I enjoy reading books, listening to music, and spending time with family. I am also in the process of completing my PhD Psychology degree

I understand that booking the first session for counselling can be difficult. But I would like to remind you that all journeys start with a small but courageous initial step.

What Our Clients Are Saying...
I was matched with a counselor I felt like I immediately connected with. I felt heard, validated, and like I was given tools to really improve my life. I was weary about returning to therapy, but giving Wellin5 a try was such a great decision -- I'm already looking forward to my next session!
- Tiana
She was accepting and nonjudgmental.
- Sami
My experience has been amazing. I was matched with such a great counselor. I would start my session with negatively but end off in a better place.
