About me

My name is Nishat Ahmed I am born and raised in Canada however, my cultureal/religious background is a Muslim/Bangladeshi. I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and the owner of Mindful + Psychotherapy working with clients through telehealth and in-person. I believe that mental health is as crucial as physical well-being, and I believe in equitable access to resources for optimal mental wellness. I work from a client-centered, strengths-based, and culturally informed lens. I use different methods of therapy to help clients achieve their goals.

My area of interest is working with teens, adults, and couples. I am compassionate about helping those who face challenges such as anxiety, depression, stress, family dynamics, immigration concerns, relationships religious or cultural paradigms. By applying modalities that are cognitively focused, attachment, narrative, motivational interview, solution-focused and mindfulness. I am an advocate for mental health, I embody empathy, compassion and a learning mindset; where prioritizing culturally sensitive and understanding the stigma and unique challenges invisible minorities may experience in seeking mental health are what drives my passion for helping those who cannot get mental health help.
