Accepting New Clients

Welcome to a safe harbour for your journey towards healing. I am Dr. Garima Garg, a Registered Clinical Counsellor and Certified Life Coach.


I specialize in Cognitive behavioural therapy, Neuro-linguistic programming and Dialectical behavioural therapy with clients struggling with their emotions, including in response to
unresolved childhood trauma, issues related to family of origin, adult interpersonal trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, gender identity, ADHD, borderline personality disorder, body dysphoria, substance use, low self-esteem, and relationships, including issues related to infidelity and other relationship conflicts.


In addition, I integrate other evidence-based approaches into treatment, as relevant, to meet clients’ unique needs. With a foundation in evidence-based practices and a holistic approach to wellness, I hold a Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology along with over six of experience practicing in numerous outpatient settings, including private practices, university counselling centres, and interdisciplinary rehabilitation clinics in India and Canada.


Through a collaborative and client-centred approach, I empower individuals to tap into their inherent strengths, rewrite limiting beliefs, and navigate life's transitions with confidence and clarity. By integrating NLP techniques, I facilitate profound shifts in mindset and behaviour, empowering clients to overcome obstacles and achieve their fullest potential. I
provide a safe space for you to connect with, deepen, and explore your experience, whether you come alone or with a partner. I believe that you, as the client, are the expert of your
experience, while my expertise lies in helping people walk through their experience in a way that leads them to discover new potentials, choices, and ways of being that ultimately enhance their lives.

Together, we will explore the depths of your inner landscape, uncovering hidden strengths, and illuminating pathways towards growth and fulfilment. Your story matters, and I am
honoured to walk alongside you as you reclaim ownership of your narrative and embrace the fullness of your potential.
Let's navigate the complexities of life together and chart a course towards a brighter, more fulfilling future.
