Cheyenne Ling Counselling Practicum Student
Through her own experiences and healing journey, she recognizes that entering the therapeutic environment may be a daunting experience for many. Acknowledging the need for help can also be a challenging step to take. Therefore, her primary aim as a therapist is to create a safe space where clients can be honest, open, and vulnerable. Inspired by the teachings of Carl Rogers, she believes that individuals are the experts of their own lives. She is committed to establishing a genuine, non-judgmental, and empathetic relationship that fosters a sense of security for her clients. Within this supportive environment, clients can openly communicate their challenges, develop heightened self-awareness, and discover their own effective solutions. She holds a trauma-informed lens and pays careful attention to the impact of traumatic experiences on individuals’ emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being. She also utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques, collaborating with clients to identify and modify unhelpful thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors. She approaches each therapeutic relationship with cultural humility, keeping an open and curious perspective while continuously learning about each client’s unique identity.
She will be supervised by Dr. Masoud Aref Nazari, one of Empower Health Mind Body’s experienced counsellors. Masoud brings a wealth of experience and a complementary therapeutic approach that further enhances the supportive and transformative environment she strives to cultivate for her clients. Affordable counselling starting at $70 a session.
Outside of her professional life in counselling, she enjoys running in nature, practicing yoga, learning about psychedelic-assisted therapies, meditating, and spending quality time with her family, friends, and dog.
