Client MA, 26 year old female
“Therapy with Shima has been an instrumental part of my healing journey over the past year. Her multi faceted wisdom has helped guide me to the deepest parts of myself that have been ignored my whole life. Allowing these parts to be examined in a safe, compassionate space has helped me flourish, view my ever healing wounds through a lense of self care and self love and has allowed me to engage fully with all aspects of myself.
Her non judgmental, kind and down to earth manner means I have always felt comfortable during sessions being honest and authentic in sharing painful aspects of my life.
I would not be where I am today in terms of significant emotional, psychological and spiritual improvement from what had been diagnosed as bi polar disorder reliant only on medication for treatment without the help of Shima (herself) and how she has allowed me to unlock my own power to heal and love myself. I am now medication free and am coping with life in healthy ways I never dreamed possible during the hard times of the past!”

It was a big step to approach a counsellor but Shima is a natural guide through my journey healing from childhood trauma. She has empowered me with confidence, in a time of darkness, by creating a safe space where I have been able to externalise my thought process with complete honesty.
Her patience, calmness, support and unique ability to share her energy encourages self- acceptance and self- compassion. She has helped me to identify the root causes of many things that have caused unhappiness in my life.
Shima’s passion for people, the mind and the soul is evident from the first time you choose to contact her.
Unravelling the past and discarding the thoughts and behaviours that no longer serve you is somewhat an enjoyable process with the right guide, as you begin to enjoy life, relationships and experiences again. I have and continue to recommend Shima to friends.

Shima has been an invaluable guide and support, but most importantly, a trusting figure throughout my experiences. Both within ceremonial settings as well as outside during integration and therapy sessions, Shima has been nothing but an absolute God-send in holding space to allow me to process my own experiences, while offering support where illness and mental stress tax my process and limit my perception. Never before have I been lucky enough to work with someone who can offer such insight into my own mental workings, while maintaining such an objective, non-judgemental and compassionate approach. I have felt safety for the first time in openly working through the depths of my own psyche, trauma and experiences with Shima, and achieved great catharsis through her therapeutic perspective and warmth as a healer.
Client TG, 54 year old Female
Shima has been helping me unravel the past in order to make sense of my difficult relationship with my mother and my anxiety relating to work. She is a calm, knowledgable and understanding listener who i can talk to in confidence, knowing that her guidance and strategies will be focused and personal.
Client SDS, 50 year old Male
Shima is an exceptionally talented therapist and healer able to integrate ceremonial paths with psychological and psychotherapeutic insights. When Shima told me about ceremonial practice as a good and strong way to achieve certain psychological breakthroughs and insights, I was skeptical. That is, until with ceremony and group discussion that Shima helped guide, I made that breakthrough. Thank you, Shima.
Client RE, 50 year old Female
Over the last few months Shima has been helping me work on expressing my feelings, finding a voice and exploring childhood experiences that maybe having a negative influence on my adult life.
With Shima’s guidance and understanding I have been able to make progress in making some important changes in my life.
