Life is challenging and it is not surprising that any of us would find ourselves in a difficult and confusing position, at some point. My commitment is to provide reliable support towards a much lighter, conscious, and fulfilling life for you. It is a privilege for me to facilitate an empowering journey of healing, emotional well-being, and mental health.
The journey of reclaiming well-being differs for each person. There is no right or wrong way – only your way. Ask for support when needed and remember to congratulate yourself on your achievements along the way.

Together we gently reconstruct the (fragmented) individual and come to a sense of harmony, acceptance, and wholeness.

Life can get overwhelming and you may have felt alone and fragmented in the challenging times. I am committed to providing individuals with the opportunity to receive reliable support in a safe and accepting environment from a caring, compassionate, and non-judgmental professional. Some people whom I had the privilege of working with calling me their ‘guardian’ for accompanying their growth, change, and achievement of new possibilities.I am fluent in both English and Farsi, and also have intermediate fluency in Japanese and Brazilian Portuguese.

If you live in Sydney, Australia, I am happy to work with you face to face at North Sydney or a location that is more suitable for both. Otherwise, I am also available for Skype and online counseling.
The initial session is to assess what is most important to you at this phase in your life. After that, we can arrange to work over a short or long term period to help enhance the quality of your life.
My income gets invested back in the betterment of my service (professional training and supervision) as well as supporting other philanthropic organizations such as “World Vision” and “Save the children”.

My approach is not of a passive listener who sits and watches you brewing in pain and then ask: “So how does that make you feel?” On the contrary, I am actively there with you in your pains and in every step of your challenges, helping you gain better understanding and perspectives and find more effective ways to go through life.
I take ethical principles and the privacy of my clients most seriously and the content of our sessions are strictly confidential, and your name will not get registered in any government mental health data base – opposite to the work of Psychologists and psychiatrists.

I see Sepi’s sessions much more than counselling – I would describe it as life coaching. Each session is an investment in my health and well-being. I always feel truly heard, and at the conclusion of each session I feel better, with some helpful insights and techniques up my sleeve to handle the situation I’m in. Sepi helps me see things in perspective, and guides me to find my courage. I would highly recommend Sepi’s work to anyone looking for guidance and insight to handle any of life’s challenges. – B. D. (Career and Life Transition – mid 20s)
Sepi is a sincere listener. She has a pure heart and a very clear line of thought. She is extremely patient and provides eye-opening insights into your thoughts, and makes you think about situations in a way you have never thought possible before. I thank Sepi from the bottom of my heart for supporting me at such difficult time. – J. F. (Successful Businessman dealing with Relationship Breakdown – mid 60s)
I found the mentoring sessions with Sepi to be insightful, and very thoughtful. I left every session with a new view point, practical strategies and an enthusiastic frame of mind. Sepi questioned my thoughts to help direct me to healthier thinking strategies and renewed my faith in my own skills and abilities. – W. A. (Executive Manager and a Single Mother – mid 50s)
I often come to Sepi in a state of deep confusion, where I cannot see a light nor can make any sense of what is happening for me. Being able to express my feelings and thoughts verbally, and then having Sepi reflecting my jumble speech back to me in such a meaningful, clear, and coherent way is often mind blowing. Sepi has a clear line of thinking, very patient and compassionate. I highly recommend working with Sepi and not suffer in isolation. – M. M. (Single Mother with an Austistic child with special needs – mid 50s)
I have had sessions with different counsellors over the years, but I feel that I have progressed and evolved the most from my sessions with Sepi. The biggest change was shifting my perspective and more conviction in my decisions. These enabled me to make better choices and actions in my best interests. Since I started almost 1 year ago, I have totally evolved as a person. I consider Sepi like my guaridan. – I. G. (Bullying and Abusive Relationships – mid 30s)
Sepi has helped me to put issues down on paper/whiteboard which helped me put things in a much clearer perspective. Sepi’s encouragement and support gave e the needed courage to discard what was no longer serving me rather than continually rambling around. Sepi’s presence and skilful body work provided that safe haven for me where I could look into some traumatic events in my life, and express the unresolved energy in such a healing and unexpectedly freeing manner. It was really surprising to me how much I was holding onto. I didn’t expect to have the responses I did. It was such a release and so helpful. I worked with Sepi over 1.5 year, and I can say that our sessions have deeply impacted my relationship as a mother and wife, as well as my relationship with myself. – P. R. (Busy Mother of 4 beautiful children – Mid 40s)
I have seen many psychiatrists and psychologists in the past, but never felt safe or trusting enough to open up. In a few sessions, Sepi gained my trust and I shared stories that were buried within me for over 5 decades! At last, I found someone who is not afraid to listen to me as is skilled to help me resolve them before I die. – A. G. (Survivor of Rape and Domestic Vioelnce – mid 80s)
I have worked with far too many psychologists, coming to Sepi was almost like a last shot. I never thought disclosing my pain to Sepi would help me find inner peace in such a shoft time! Opposite to other professionals that I had worked with, I did not feel any judgment from Sepi for my controvertial choices of life and relationships. I felt safe and I was guided to choose what I believe to be the best at this stage in my life. Also with Sepi’s help I could resolve some of the pain and anger had towards my father, which improved my phsycail health as well. Thanks Sepi. – H. W. (Renewed Marriage – mid 70s)
