Hi there, I am Nogol

I am Nogol, which means "New Flower" in my Persian background.

As a registered therapeutic counselor, my goal is to hold a safe and loving space for self-exploration and curiosity.

My superpower is my humanness and my expertise is rooted in my own embodied life experiences.


I am a space holder for the human experience, encouraging the expression of creativity and personal growth. I believe in the wholeness of a person and my focus is on balancing the mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of well-being.

As a new immigrant to Canada, I bring a multicultural perspective to my work. My own journey of seeking freedom and a better life has given me a deep understanding of change, healing, and emotions.


I offer sessions in both English and Farsi.

In my practice as a trauma-informed counselor, I incorporate the gifts of coaching and self-expression through my programs "Move with your Heart" and "Paint with your Heart". As a movement and somatic informed counselor, I help clients tap into the wisdom of their bodies and find a new language for healing and joy.

My intention is to hold the light for you, to help you see your heart clearly as you navigate your path.

I am here to support you as you discover your own inner strength and resilience and true self.

What is somatic therapy

Somatic psychotherapy, is a holistic therapeutic approach, incorporates a person's mind, body, spirit, and emotions in the healing process.

It helps us to be in tune with the emotions being known through our body.

I believe there is a lot of information in our body.  Both, being kept and getting introduced every day.  I believe if we listen truly and completely to our body, it will relieve what needs to be known.

being connected to our bodies through physical wellness and somatic therapy helps us to release physical stress and become aware of anywhere that energy was being stored in our body.

We learn how to move that energy and how to be free and expressive. 

When we are able to move the energy, even for a little amount of time, makes us understand we are able to create space for new possibilities. 

That means freedom and being unstuck by understanding the energy, moving it and letting and deciding where it should flow.
