Kaynat Iqbal Profile

Currently working as a counseling psychologist in private practice, I cater to adolescents and adults struggling with various challenges like anxiety, low mood, work stress, relationship troubles, trauma, self-harm and suicidal ideation.

With 2+ years of experience as a counseling psychologist, having worked with individuals from diverse backgrounds including underprivileged and queer communities, I take into account the social environment of the individual and its possible impact on their current situation. With certification in Trauma-Informed Care, I hope to provide my clients with a safe space where they feel free to explore their past without the fear of retraumatization.

Primarily informed by the humanistic approach, I hope to make my therapy space a collaborative one, with the client and I working as partners towards goal-setting and self-exploration.

Guided by the principles of Narrative Practice, I view my clients from a lens of resiliency, inviting them to become curious about their values, explore alternative stories and become facilitators in their journey towards self-awareness and growth.

By introducing Parts Work to clients when required, I am able to foster curiosity and self-compassion, thereby broadening their coping resources and paving the way for healing.

As a queer-affirmative feminist I have the tendency to take a rights-based approach which allows my clients to voice their opinions about systemic oppression. Together, we deconstruct the impact of systems on their lives and identify core values that they wish to embody as a way of fighting back.

In my free time, I love to read non-fiction, listen to podcasts and travel.
