About Raniya Syed, MA, RP

Psychotherapy is a great resource when you're feeling overwhelmed, stressed, a sense of dis-ease, or facing challenging situations & relationships. My therapeutic approach is empathetic, holistic, client-centred, culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed, and grounded in the Islamic worldview. 

I believe you are the expert of your life with intrinsic value, knowledge, skills, and abilities. I aim to create a safe space where we can collaboratively honor your unique lived experiences, reclaim your life narrative, discover your strengths, and support you in your wellness journey so you feel grounded, confident, and better-equipped to deal with your struggles.

You can expect compassion, naseeha (sincere advice), the sweetness of iman (faith), warmth, humour, tears (cathartic release), authenticity, insightful conversations, respect, and a ray of hope in our sessions. I know how difficult it can be to start therapy - let’s start with a quick phone call to better understand each other. Schedule a free 15-minute consultation below.

Note: I can only take clients currently located in Canada.
