Khatereh Zabihi

Personal & Professional Counselor and Trainer



My name is Khatereh!


I am an entrepreneur, a counselor and a trainer on a mission to help individuals on the journey of life and to live the life they truly deserve.

No matter who we are and where we come from, life has its ups and downs. Through being aware of our deepest feelings, we are able to respond to our real needs and awaken our inner power to face all that life offers.

  • Building resiliency and productive responses to life challenges


  • Work on their deepest emotional wounds and help them to heal them


  • Drawing out and enabling the strong parts of their personality


After receiving my master’s degree in counselling psychology, I founded Rahnemood Counselling Center in Iran in 2005 and opened the second branch in Toronto in 2016. 

I have been trained in the following areas:


  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Schema Therapy (ST)

  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT)

  • Choice Theory, Reality Therapy

  • MBTI Step 1 and Step 2

  • Transactional Analysis(T.A)

  • Enneagram

Dr. Farzaneh Yazdani

Deciding to make a change requires lots of courage. It requires even more courage and effort to take the first steps towards it. And the fact that you are here reading these lines means that you have already started your journey and I can assist you with the rest.

I hold B.A. and M.A. degrees in clinical psychology from Allameh-Tabatabaei University and University of Tehran, respectively, and a doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in Education Studies in the area of gender equity and social justice from the University of Western Ontario (UWO). I have several years experience of working in the mental health area and a vast theoretical knowledge of multiple modalities in therapy. I am a registered psychotherapist in the Province of Ontario and also work in the Family Services York Region (FSYR) as a psychotherapist. I provide individual, couple, and family therapies to Farsi-speaking communities as well as people with other cultural backgrounds. I also run different therapeutic groups in FSYR (for example, Women’s Group, Mindfulness Awareness Stabilization Training (MAST) Group, etc.).

I have been trained in the following areas:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT),

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT),

  • Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT),

  • Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT),

  • Solution-Focused/Brief Therapy,

  • Feminist Psychotherapy.


My doctoral training and specialization in feminism, gender equity, and social justice have made me passionate about working with women, children, marginalized people, LGBTQ people, and people with different racial, religious, social, and class backgrounds. I strive to empower my clients to be able to see their strengths and achieve their desired goals in a safe supportive and non-judgmental space where they can be heard with empathy and compassion. Together, we can bring about change. Let me be a part of your journey.
