Nicky Deeb (She/They) 
Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), MA 
 

My name is Nicky (she/they) and I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). I am currently accepting new clients. My goal as a therapist is to provide a relationship with each client that gives space to explore the impact of external stories and your internal worlds.

 

I work mostly with neurodivergent individuals – people who self-identify as Autistic, ADHD, gifted, highly sensitive etc. – with interest in navigating the harmful impact of dominant social norms.

 

I view all clients as experts of their own experience and during sessions this is evident in that I will not be providing any analysis or contributions outside of what you bring to share. My role will be to listen to your stories and emotions, ask clarifying questions, reflect back to you what I am hearing, and ask questions about meaning.

 

My approaches are borrowed from Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Schema Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Mindfulness and Religion, with some influence from CBT and Art Therapy.

 

What draws me to working with other ND people is that I am constantly exploring my own ND traits finding overlap in my previously labelled “giftedness” with my understanding of ADHD and Autism. I have found working with ND clients alleviates some of the double-empathy burden.

 

I also work with neurotypical people. As an example, beyond navigating the NT world, I am also navigating the parenting world and this common experience allows for strong connections of understanding to be made between me and clients who are interested in discussing this aspect of themselves. For some, this may specifically extend to parenting their inner child.

Nicky is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with experience in Autism, teaching, and Crisis Response. She holds a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University.
