As an educational therapist, she is experienced in supporting early years and primary grades’ students, both in local and international schools and in private practice settings. She has facilitated diverse clients in their development of skills, self-confidence and efficacy. During her work as an educational therapist, Aisha recognized the impact that counselling could have on her students’ emotional well-being, leading her to train as a counsellor and support her clients’ holistic needs. She implements flexible approaches in order to meet the comprehensive needs of each client and his/her family.
Aisha believes that emotional well-being is the foundation on which success in all other areas is built, be it social-emotional or academic. In addition to counselling students with learning difficulties, she has worked with adolescents from dysfunctional family backgrounds.
Aisha’s strength lies in her ability to form a purposeful rapport with her clients, thus creating a safe and trusting environment for effective remediation. She uses a range of counselling modalities, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and eclectic interventions to bridge the gap between her clients’ educational and emotional needs.
