Shifaa, pronounced [she-fa`a], is an Arabic word meaning healing, recovery or remedy. Generally when we think of healing we think of physical health. However, the center of the body's functioning is the heart and the heart is more than a piece of flesh in the body. When a person's heart is not at peace they can experience a multitude of psychological problems or difficulties, as well as physical ones. The Shifaa Counseling approach is to work with each client to help them achieve a sense of peace in their heart, thus helping to heal the points of dis-ease that have accumulated from life experiences.
We provide support and practical feedback to help clients resolve current problems and long-standing patterns with an interactive, solution-focused approach. With sensitivity and compassion, we assist clients in finding solutions to a wide range of life challenges and psychological issues. Blending conventional and alternative approaches, we draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client. We work with each client to help them build on their strengths to identify and achieve life goals.
