Maryam Bayat

I have Master’s degree in Clinical psychology and I am Registered Clinical Counselor, with years of counselling experience helping people to find their way in life journey. I also identify myself as a mother, an immigrant, and a lifetime learner.

My clients describe me patient, capable of establishing a secure non-judgmental space to let them rely on it for their exploration. 

Outside of counselling room, I fill my cup with being in nature; connecting with my body doing yoga, hiking, dancing; cooking; listening to music and podcasts; watching documentaries, reading books; water coloring and rock painting; chatting, and playing with loved ones and friends.


Specialization

I am expert in working with anxiety, depression, life transition, grief and bereavement, identity and self-esteem, family conflicts and parenting, career and work-related issues. As an immigrant, I am familiar with oppression, marginalization, struggling with sense of belonging, loneliness and loss. So, I have special interest in listening to client’s narrations of these issues and working with them to thrive.

Approach

I like to look out issues in the framework of resiliency that reflected in my moto “We are vulnerable but resilient”. In our life journey, we may get lost, fall down, break apart, more than once. However, there is always a way that not been discovered, or solutions not been created yet. I would love to accompany you to stand up again, get your wounds healed, explore your world of options, discover and try new ways, build your own solution and move forward. I have an integrative approach for uncovering the dynamic and reasons behind clients’ problems as well as provide some practical tools that help them to deal with daily issues. Humanistic, Client- centered and Attachment based intervention constitute the base of my practice and Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and when needed Solution Focused Therapy are the other perspectives that I have found beneficial in helping clients.
