Zehra Moinuddin qualified from University College London, is a CPCAB-UK (Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) accredited therapist, and is currently training to be a supervisor. She has been running a private practice since 2015 and provides her clients with a safe, non-judgmental, and playful space in which they can explore their inner world. She believes that the purpose of therapy is to help a person move towards wholeness, not perfection.
Zehra works using an integrative approach, borrowing from both Humanistic and Psychodynamic traditions. She has extensive experience working with adolescents and adults struggling with anxiety, addiction, depression, self-esteem issues, shame, grief, trauma, marriage problems, relationship concerns, gender, sexuality, and abuse.
She is passionate about the therapeutic potential power of play and the arts. Her experience has taught her that like most powerful tools, talk therapy comes with its limitations – sometimes we simply do not have the words to describe how we feel. She has employed a variety of innovative methods, borrowing from several art forms including improvisation, comedy, drama, dance, and music, to help her clients explore themselves further.
In addition to running a successful private practice out of Karachi, Zehra has taught a diploma in psychodynamic counselling, run several groups, has started and run the Wellness Counselling Department at the College Section of Karachi Grammar School, and conducted workshops at numerous organisations that address topics such as ‘Managing Burnout in the Workplace’.
