9. Tazeen Mohsin Imran
I work as a clinical psychologist and a workshop facilitator. I absolutely adore working with people because of which I focus on seeing beyond the negative self-talk, personas and beliefs to the infinite possibility each one of us has. Because of this I am never willing to settle for anyone being less than what is possible for them.
My interest in understanding human behaviour and working towards improving people’s lives led me to work in several fields including advertising, research & education and learning alternative healing modalities like Mind Sciences and Reiki, before finally pursuing psychotherapy.
I developed, implemented and managed the Career Counselling Program at The Citizen’s Foundation which is now running successfully in 14 different cities within Pakistan.
For 4 years, I was working directly under Sidra Jafri, who is an internationally acclaimed Awakening Facilitator based in UK. I am also an associate consultant with Paul Keijzer for Engage Consulting.
I currently work with clinically depressed and suicidal clients to everyday people who feel stuck in certain areas of their life, in Pakistan and internationally as well. Some of my international clients have been from USA, Dubai, Denmark and United Kingdom. I have also made several appearances on Health Tv and Samaa Tv.
