Navinder Plaha

Intern, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

As a compassionate and curious psychotherapist, I am dedicated to understanding the intricate relationships between body, mind, and spirit. With a strong foundation in health studies and counselling psychology, I recognize the profound impact of Social Determinants of Health (SDH) and Socioeconomic Status (SES) on our well-being.

In my psychotherapy practice, I specialize in supporting individuals navigating a range of challenges, including:

  • Mental Health: Mood disorders, anxiety, depression
  • Women’s Health: Pregnancy, postpartum care, fertility challenges, miscarriage
  • Addictions: Substance use, recovery support
  • Wellness: Stress management, chronic pain, sleep optimization, gut health
  • Life Transitions: Significant life changes, identity exploration, career shifts
  • Trauma Support: Trauma-informed care, CBT, resilience building

My philosophy is rooted in the belief that true transformation begins with self-awareness and understanding. Through our work together, I will guide you in exploring your thoughts, emotions, and experiences, helping you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your place in the world. With this newfound understanding, you will be empowered to:

  • Discover your values and passions
  • Develop coping strategies to navigate life’s challenges
  • Cultivate meaningful relationships
  • Embrace your uniqueness and celebrate your strengths
  • Find purpose and direction in your life

Together, we will work towards creating a life that is authentic, meaningful, and fulfilling. A life that starts with you, understanding yourself, and embracing your true potential. Let’s take the first step together!
