Treatment Philosophy and Approach to Counselling

With the therapeutic approach of Mindfulness, Somatic therapy, Strengths Based therapy, Family Systems, and Parts work, Ashar can help you learn how to have authentic relationships and to recognize and acknowledge the value you have, that is always present.

He brings a wealth of knowledge from which you will gain tools for self-regulation and self care that can support you in achieving your goals.

He also brings a natural sense of safety, love, and curiosity. Over time, you will likely notice less tension in your body and a redirection of focus to the goodness that is present in your life.

With a willing heart, this work will help you find friendship in yourself and discover what has been distracting you from the life you most want to live.

Personal Life

Ashar grew up in Richmond and then moved to Vancouver, where he currently lives; enjoying that most of his extended family live in the surrounding areas. He loves travel, active outdoor-life, making art, playing music, daily yoga and meditation, and healing.
