About Rabia Ikram
Registered Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor
Hi, my name is Rabia. I am a proud immigrant - a product of three different cultures who speaks three different languages and a working professional. I hold a Master’s Degree in Psychology and Registered to work as a Psychotherapist in Ontario. I strongly believe we as humans need secure attachments to thrive. Therefore, my one free piece of advice to you would be to seek attachment, and not independence. The single most important factor in building resilience in life is by building strong relationships. What touches me the most is the compassion and unconditional love people have for their children and each other. As a mother I’m stirred by the resilience of my own child; she surely warms my heart and makes me want to leave this world a little less divided. She is my reason behind working hard,
staying grounded in my present and being grateful in tough moments.
About Diane Cimetta
Hello, my name is Diane. I am a Registered Psychotherapist registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I completed a Master of Counselling Psychology degree through Athabasca University. Mental and
physical health are important to me, and I view these as interconnected with all aspects of ourselves. I believe that we become our best selves when we learn to balance different aspects of our lives. Writing of this balance, my newest interest in my pursuit for improving mental and physical health is learning Tai Chi and Qi Gong. A form of martial arts, Tai Chi, has been referred to as “walking meditation” as it involves being mindful of our movements and how we engage internally to move externally. Starting this practice has helped to deepen my understanding of the mind body connection and has reinforced my belief in the importance of both in maintaining mental and physical health and wellbeing.
