Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)
STATUS: CURRENTLY WAITLISTING NEW CLIENTS
My name is Hammam Farah, and I’m a psychotherapist, writer, activist and life coach.
I believe change happens when we expand our self-awareness by understanding ourselves. But to understand ourselves, we first need to be understood. That’s why the therapeutic relationship – built on trust, honesty, empathy and vulnerability – lies at the heart of personal change.
I received my B.A. (Hons) Double Major in Psychology and Political Science from York University. I then went on to graduate from the Toronto Centre for Training in Psychotherapy, which provides one of the most intensive and long-term psychotherapy programs in Canada. I am also a certified Life Coach, having obtained my certification from JRNI Coaching.
I am a Palestinian Canadian whose life was greatly impacted by the experience of childhood immigration and political developments in the Middle East. In my spare time, I fight injustice and inequality as a human rights activist and community organizer. I have also worked with immigrants, refugees and people with disabilities, providing settlement services and group counselling sessions. My passion for psychotherapy stems from my conviction that a better world is possible.
As hard as change was for me in my own life transitions, it would be change that would drive me forward; the desire to understand myself and improve, to do the work that would be necessary to become the person I am today.
Nothing quite impacted me as much as my training in psychotherapy. It was there that I discovered a special kind of self-awareness. There was a point in my third year of training when I realized I was seeing a different side to life that I had been blinded from: that of relating to another person on a deep emotional level. I developed the capacity to listen deeply to another person and become attuned to them, to truly understand them. I felt that I had been living my life in black and white, and now someone had taken a paint brush and filled it with colour.
Let’s work together to embark on your own journey of transformation and self-discovery.
