Meet noosha

Noosha is a mother, she has two sons and a daughter. ​She wears many hats, with one of her favourite hats ​being ‘Aunty Shoosha’ to her nieces ​and nephews.She is of an Iranian background and arrived in Australia in ​1996 as a refugee.She loves cooking and feeding people - having a post-​dinner yarn at the dining table is one of her favourite ​moments.She adores coffee and loves a dark roast, which you’ll ​often find accompanying her in session. She also loves a ​storm and chasing waterfalls. When she isn’t in the chair, ​or consulting - she is forest bathing, camping or road ​tripping with her tribe. She is a visual person, and often ​shares her thoughts via scribbles in therapy. She isn’t ​very tech savvy and prefers pen and paper.Noosha was motivated to become a Psychologist as she ​learned early in life that human suffering is unique, on a ​continuum, and doesn’t discriminate. As such, she ​discovered happiness too must be ongoing, and ​therefore must be harnessed through psychotherapy. ​She named her business Psychfirst, a play on words ​emphasising the need for our psychology to be ​prioritised. ​

Noosha currently practices via TeleHealth only. . She is in search of a ​space that is just right, as she prefers face-to-face, however is finding ​difficulty in finding a new space for her clinic to call home. As such, she ​is only available via Zoom, until further notice.
