Sadia is passionate about helping people Grow. Grow in their self-awareness, their relationships, their work, and in their lives.
Through her easy-going and encouraging, yet focused therapy style, she helps clients delve deeper into issues of the past and present, process these, and over time, develop new and healthy perspectives that allow them to move forward as better, stronger versions of themselves. She assists clients overcome emotional and mental barriers by developing self-awareness, drawing on their inner strengths and nurturing positive mindsets and behaviors.
She supports with client presentations such as depression, anxiety, stress, relationship challenges, grief and loss, work / career issues, self-esteem, and others.
Sadia is also trained in Gottman Couples Therapy, and has supported many couples in enhancing the quality of their relationships through increased self-awareness, an understanding and appreciation of their relationship dynamics, and improved communication strategies and tools.
Sadia likes to work with diverse evidence-based modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Gottman Couples Therapy, among others. She holds a Masters in Counselling degree from Monash University, Melbourne, and is registered with the Australian Counselling Association.
In her free time, Sadia loves to read, paint and experience new places and cultures.
