Welcome to Embracing Empowerment Counselling Services

We opened our doors in 2016 with a simple idea : embracing our own flaws to empower ourselves.

So what does this mean in the Mental Health world? The moment we unravel our pain and hurt in a safe space, is the moment we learn that we are human. Its truly okay to  understand that with our falls, it teaches us that vulnerability is truly our strength and once we own it, we embrace the lessons from our pain and empower ourselves to become resilient. 

We opened our door to empower individuals across Ontario to become stronger and resilient selves by lending a hand, a listening ear and a compassionate heart through in person, by phone and online Therapy. 

This is us. 


Parul Shah, MSP, RSW

Founder and Psychotherapist

Embracing Empowerment was founded by Parul Shah. She is an experienced registered social worker and psychotherapist with the Ontario College of Social Workers since 2002.  Shah has three undergraduate degrees in Sociology and Social Work, and a Masters’ of Science in Psychology (MSP) from the University of Phoenix. 

Shah is passionate in empowering her clients: “When I was going through the growing pains of my life lessons, I had wished two things: to be heard & understood. I founded Embracing Empowerment Counselling Services on the basis of my life challenges on what it felt to be alone, and from there it had a creation to ensure others that when we are being heard and eventually understood, we are no longer alone in the journey of our own mental health.”
