Welcome to our place
Hi there! My name is Noha and I would like to help you. Reaching out to those in need during their most vulnerable time has been a life-long passion of mine. In partnership with some exceptional psychologists, social workers and counsellors, I offer a safe space for people in need to be able to talk about their troubles with compassionate professionals who can truly make a difference. Together, we are Acuity and we are here to help you navigate life's emotional challenges while striving to communicate effectively with easy to understand terminology rather than confusing acronyms. In our care you can learn to grow and become resilient in ways you may not have thought possible.
Going through therapy is not easy and often to reach tangible results we have to be pushed out of our comfort zone. The therapeutic journey can sometimes be difficult at first, but the end result is often enlightenment and relief. Counselling helps us discover new strengths about ourselves and those around us. Knowing more about your relationships, bad habits, what makes you tick and maybe even what is holding you back from living a full life, is all part of the journey of self discovery. We will help you build upon your strength. Whether it's a fracturing relationship, broken trust, or working through personal challenges, here at Acuity you will find a safe haven for your inner most thoughts and emotions. Understanding how you got to where you are is half the journey and we are here, right alongside and guiding you every step of the way. We welcome you to our practice. You can be yourself with us.
Our offices are located in the ground floor of the beautiful and newly constructed Edison building on the corner of Dutch Village Road and Joseph Howe Drive (across from Shoppers Drug Mart). As part of our commitment to you, we offer free parking in the Edison's dedicated lot.
Not sure where to start?
When you first reach out to Acuity, I will most likely be the one to answer. I will conduct a 15-minute intake session with you which will allow me to get to know you better and determine your individual goals and needs. Questions may seem extensive at first but you never have to answer anything you don't want to. Acuity promotes a safe and judgment-free environment. It's best to call when you're able to be alone or can speak privately. Rest assured, you are in good hands. I understand that talking about your issues can be emotional. The intake process will also give you the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about Acuity. Once the intake is done, I will determine which therapist is the best match for you under our care. I'm a firm believer that 'good fit' is essential to effective therapy. I make a promise to all our clients - if we are unable to help you at Acuity, we will connect you with someone who can, even if it's at another practice.
Our office is an extension of who we are. We want you to feel comfortable in our inviting environment. We believe that the connection you establish with your therapist is at the core of successful therapy. Therefore, I put a lot of care and effort to ensure that you and the therapist are a good fit. It should not be hard to make a connection with your therapist. Establishing a positive relationship with your psychologist or counsellor is important for the progress of your therapy. After the first session, it's not unusual to feel a sense of relief - as if a heavy weight just lifted off your chest. We hope you feel more comfortable when you leave our care than when you came in. A good fit leads to more productive therapy and you should expect your comfort level to increase as your journey with us continues. Many clients find that a regimen of weekly sessions initially are helpful, but the majority of our clients experience better results through bi-weekly sessions on a more long-term basis. Your therapist will work with you to map out a session schedule which best serves your needs.
