Alumni Feature: Meet Ikjyot Rehal
SFU Degree(s): Master of Education – Counselling Psychology, 2021
Currently, I work as a mental health counsellor in my private practice, Thriving Hearts Therapy Clinic, located in Surrey. I provide virtual counselling for young adults struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, loneliness, and conflicts with parents.
Since I believe relationships play such an integral role in our lives, I have also acquired special training in couples therapy so a lot of young couples come to me and I help them learn skills to communicate, reconnect and form closer relationships.
I have myself been a student at SFU Surrey campus and acknowledge how important mental health is for students. I have always found myself to be an advocate of mental health when I was a student.
After graduation, I am honored to help people change their lives. Creating inclusive thereputic environment where people feel validated, seen and heard is what I believe holds power to heal.
What advice do you have for SFU students going through their degree?
The advice I will give to current students is to give yourself permission to explore yourself, your careers, worldview, and create meaningful connections. When you leave SFU, this will provide you rich experience which will not only help you in your career but also in your life.
