About me and my therapy practice

My name is Saida, which is an old Finnish name pronounced like the apple drink cider.

I help young adults who are navigating through the complex modern life with challenges such as anxiety, social relationships, identity, self-confidence, neurodivergence and work-life balance.

There are multiple reasons to seek counselling — whether it's navigating life challenges, overcoming trauma, managing emotions, fostering self-love, or gaining self-understanding, I'm here to assist you on this journey.

As an integrative counsellor, I blend various therapeutic techniques to tailor our sessions to your unique needs and goals. It is important to me that my client feels supported, nurtured and cared for in their session with me. Together we can build this therapeutic relationship. I provide a welcoming environment to foster self-awareness, self-acceptance, and personal growth. Together, we delve into your past experiences, gaining a deeper understanding of their impact on your present life. We work collaboratively to identify and implement effective strategies and coping skills to manage distress, regulate difficult emotions, and enhance your mental well-being.

Being neurodivergent myself, I embrace diversity and understand its challenges. I am committed to delivering neurodiversity-affirming therapy.

I offer online and in-person counselling.
