My name is Hossein Abdollahi Sani, a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). I am also a Certified Family and Couple therapist who graduated from Guelph University, Ontario. I graduated from Shiraz University of Medical Science in Iran in 1990 and started working as a GP Medical Doctor until 1999 when I began to work as a psychiatrist after 3 years of residency training at Iran University in Tehran. In the year 2000, with the contribution of my professional colleagues, I founded an addiction recovery Center, Atie Now, in Karaj where I had a position of supervisor psychiatrist, and therapist until 2015, when I immigrated to Toronto. I also worked with and treated clients with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Sexual disorders, LGBTQ, and Transgender. After obtaining my Registered Psychotherapist license in Ontario in 2015, I started to provide safe and effective therapy to my clients, bringing many years of experience in the field of Medical psychiatry and as a therapist in both Farsi and English languages. pursuing my professional goals and development, I successfully graduated from a certified Family and Couple therapy program at Guelph University to achieve CAFMT registration.
In my practice, I support my clients who are going through difficult life situations which impose them with a lot of stress, anger, anxiety, and depression in addition to background mental health issues that they suffer from. I provide a safe, non-judgmental space for my clients to open up to themselves, communicate their pains, develop new skills, foster positive emotions, and have a better quality of life. I walk with them through every step of their struggles and help them to achieve their desired goal.
I am also a public speaker and have delivered many speeches about mental health and marijuana, communication, and parenting skills sponsored by different Iranian organizations in Toronto. I am interested in volunteer activity in my professional field.
I am a mental health counselor at Ayeneh Foundation established by Dariush Eghbali, an activist and a reputable Iranian singer, whose mission is mental health promotion and addiction prevention. Along with my honor colleague and psychiatrist, Dr. Abbas Azadian, we started to produce weekly mental health discussion programs in Farsi that have been broadcast by Ayeneh Foundation TV.
I work with a group of highly motivated women in the IWOO organization of Ontario as a mental health professional volunteer.
