    We recently had an initial session with Ashif Kassam. The setting was comfortable and calming. Ashif seems caring and insightful. We will be scheduling future sessions.

    Ash is an incredible counselor. He is compassionate and really seeks to understand what you’re saying and helps you walk through whatever situation or emotions you’re dealing with. I’m really happy with the level of care he gives and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking guidance.

    Ash was a very personable and kind counsellor. He listens and gives kind advice/suggestions. I really felt comfortable and would recommend this place to everyone.

  • *****

    Ash is a kind soul, someone you can feel immediately comfortable with. He is amazing at helping others with his compassionate listening skills and insightful advice. He genuinely cares about you and your well being, as such he equips you with the tools to help yourself and reassures you he is there for support. I highly recommend Ash and have a huge amount of respect for him!

  • *****

    I was a bit hesitant about going to see a councillor but Ash has been very helpful and always takes the time to listen without judgement. He makes sure to review your file before arrival so you don’t have to start from square one every time. His office is a nice and calm environment without any distractions. Appointments are super easy to book and he will make sure to fit you. I highly recommend Ash to anyone, it may be hard to take that first step but I am happy I did.

    ASH IS A GREAT LISTENER AND ENCOURAGER

  • *****

    Ash is a very kind man who isnt in the least bit judgemental. He listens super well and is genuinely concerned in helping his clients in any way he can. He is very easy to talk and open up too. I would recommend him to anyone who feels like they could benefit from a session or two, regardless of how big or small the problem you may be facing is. His techniques are unique and help me a lot. I am likely to see him again, even though just one session helped me a lot.

    Ash is one the most caring and helpful people I have met in my life. I was dealing with some issues in my personal life and Ash was able to help me out so quickly. He's incredibly easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

  • *****

    I have had the privilege of working with Ash for the last couple of months on issues ranging from self- esteem, anxiety & OCD. I work as a helping professional myself and struggled to find someone to talk to that aligned with my practice & overall approach in life. After months of draining counselling sessions with other workers who were not the right fit, I met Ash and it was awesome. He is supportive , helpful, flexible and kind. I am constantly having to change my appointments to accommodate my crazy work schedule and he always just makes it work. Ash is truly one of a kind and anyone would be lucky to have him as a part of their support network.

  • *****

    Lumina Counselling Services creates an open environment for discussion through trust, support, and respect. I would recommend this service to recent graduates seeking work-life balance, burnt out professionals, and anyone looking for a change in mindset or lifestyle.

    Thanks Ash, one session, and the first I’ve ever had btw, and I feel so much more relaxed, stronger, and better able to deal with whatever comes my way. Will certainly consider future sessions just to reinforce what you’ve already laid in place

    I recommend Lumina Counselling to everyone on this planet! I saw Ash a couple of years ago and had the most incredible experience and results with the therapy Ash practices. He was the 5th professional I had tried over the previous 5 years! I only had two sessions with him and I went from having paralyzing anxiety and panic attacks to being a balanced and healthy me. It sounds too good to be true but it's amazing because we FIXED my anxiety. I felt (and still feel 2 years later) empowered and in control of my thoughts, and have a beautiful perspective of what my anxiety was. With the other therapists I saw, I was talking so much about my life without getting any better and I found that to be so frustrating. I am so thankful I met a professional that wanted genuine results for me as much as I did and knew exactly how to teach me to independently manage my mood in almost no time-maybe not the best business model, Ash! Any time I have a little tingle of anxiety or a bad day that I can't shake, I use the tools Ash provided to cure it in less than 5 minutes. This was such a bitter sweet experience because I loved working with Ash, but we fixed my anxiety in two sessions and I've never had to go back. Thanks, Ash!!

    Each time I had a session, I walked out feeling so free, understood, respected and left with solutions to my issues. The counselor was more than kind, easy to speak with, and provided a safe, non judgemental environment where opening up was welcome. I highly recommend Lumina Counselling Services to anyone that needs help in sorting and filing life complications.

    We thought there was no hope for saving our marriage. Mr. Kassam saw there was still a chance. He patiently and skillfully brought our family back together.

    I have been depressed and anxious ever since I can remember. I really didn’t think I could get better but my sister has faith in your ability. Good thing I listened to her! Four sessions is all it took and I really appreciate knowing I can touch base with you at any point for a tune-up.
