MACP student, ON Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Practicum Site and Supervisor: CJS Psychotherapy and Consulting Services, and Cynthia Schoppmann


Rafeya is currently a Master’s level MA in counselling psychology practicum student, who is qualified to practice under the clinical supervision of an approved practicum supervisor.


Hello everyone! I am Rafeya and my journey in the field of psychotherapy began with a deep-rooted passion for understanding the human mind and the intricacies of human behavior. Central to my therapeutic approach is creating a safe and non-judgmental space where individuals can explore their thoughts and feelings. I believe that a strong therapeutic alliance is essential for the healing process, and I work collaboratively with my clients to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to their unique needs and goals.


Person-centered approach is essential to my practice, and I also integrate Solution-focused therapy (SFT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Together with my clients, we identify their strengths, explore solutions, and set achievable goals.


Whether you are grappling with anxiety, depression, relationship issues, or other life challenges, I am here to support you and empower you to build resilience, enhance self-awareness, and develop the skills needed to navigate life's ups and downs. Together we can explore the challenges you are facing, and I look forward to helping you on your journey.
