Mehdi Naimi, MA, RCAT

Mehdi Naimi graduated from the Vancouver Art Therapy Institute in 2001. He then went on to establish a private practice and work as a therapist for the government of British Columbia for 15 years. In that period of time, he trained in sand play therapy and body-based approaches. He received a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology in 2010.

Mehdi was always interested in the arts in his childhood and youth, and both by choice and circumstance, he studied fine arts in his early twenties. Later on, he realized his strong urge to help people through art in the same way art had helped him in his personal struggles.
