About me

My name is Nasim Mahin and I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor and member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association providing psychotherapy services in Ottawa. I hold Bachelors degrees in Psychology and Film Studies from Carleton University, and a Masters degree in Counselling and Spirituality from Saint Paul University.

I have over five years of experience working with children, youth, adults, and families in a variety of therapeutic settings.

I work from a client-centred approach, and strive to create a calm and inviting environment that fosters open communication and expression, and allows for individuals to actualize their self-determined goals.

My unique educational background allows me to utilize films in therapeutic ways to help clients cope with and process their live events.  I also like to utilize play, music, and art therapy techniques to help clients work through some of their struggles.

I offer counselling and psychotherapy services in English, Farsi, and Azerbaijani Turkish.

I have experience in the following areas:

  • Acculturation and Dual cultural identities
  • Adoption and blended families
  • Anger and domestic violence
  • Anxiety
  • Eating Disorders and disordered eating
  • Family of origin dynamics
  • Low mood and depressive symptoms
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ( PTSD)
  • Relationship issues
  • Self-esteem and body image issues
  • Sexual and physical trauma
