Faiza has been in the mental health industry for almost 20 years. She has worked in various roles in the community services sector as well as positions such as a Mental Health Trainer and Mindset Coach. She has also been a part of the ‘Partners in Recovery’ program and worked as a Specialist Mental Health Support Coordinator within the NDIS. Her counselling practice has been online via zoom due to Covid for the past couple of years and now she is looking forward to seeing clients face to face at Fairfield Wellness.
She mainly specialises working with women who have gone through trauma in the past such as domestic abuse, difficult separation, or divorce. She also works with clients who need help with grief and loss as well as anxiety, depression, sleep issues, and difficult life transitions. She is trained in modalities such as Solution Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming and Time-line Therapy. Faiza brings in a holistic and trauma informed approach to her practice.
When not counselling, Faiza is a mum of two adult children and two fur babies. She is also a visual artist and loves to paint and visit galleries around Victoria during her spare time.
