While we cannot always change the circumstances of our lives, we can always change our response to those circumstances. Hardship does not necessarily mean suffering. It is possible to enjoy life more by having a better understanding of one’s self and developing better responses to life’s challenges.
Having been a psychologist for over 25 years, Farida is experienced in helping clients manage their mental health challenges. She has worked with adults suffering from a wide range of mental health problems which include anxiety, depression and managing symptoms of psychosis.
Farida found that as long as the person is willing to work together with the therapist, positive improvements can be made even in situations which may seem at first without hope.
Farida’s approach in helping her clients is based on a combination of psychological approaches such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. These therapeutic approaches are evidence-based models that can help people suffering from a wide range of mental health problems which include anxiety disorders, depression and loneliness, and even conditions such as schizophrenia.
