Approach Description: I work from a Relational Cultural Theory model - which means that I like to get to know you through your perspective (your individual identity, relationships, and cultural/ethnic identity). I give importance to the relationship you and I create to work towards your goals for therapy - if you aren't comfortable with your therapist, you won't be able to do the work you want to do in therapy. I also use elements of Narrative Therapy, where we move into asking questions from a place of curiosity to create space for you to understand your needs better. I also used evidence based approaches such as CBT, DBT, and Mindfulness strategies. We work collaboratively together: where you are the expert on you and I bring my understanding of mental health, relationships, and wellbeing to support you.

Hira Imam Practice Details

Therapy Sessions Hira Imam Practice Description
Being a South Asian who grew up in Canada it took me years to understand why I felt like I didn't fit in. It was so obvious yet so unclear - the system isn't designed for someone like me - a woman of colour, and being a Muslim woman of colour. This is the awareness that I bring into my work with clients - that we live in a Eurocentric world, with colonial values that don't resonate with us so they shouldn't define who we are. I want to get to know you the way that you know yourself (which we may discover together in our work), I want to know about your relationships (the important ones, the messy ones, the amazing ones), and I want know about you culturally, ethnically, religiously/spiritually - all of the intersecting layers of what makes you YOU from your perspective. By putting you at the centre of our work together and exploring your goals, values, and wants, we move towards your sense of belonging in the world. We address the things that feel overwhelming and make you feel like you have to work hard to belong.
