“Learning about ourselves is a key part of building the life we want to live”

Farah Khushabi

Head of Mentorship

As the Head of Mentorship, I work closely with mentees and their families at Dallington. I am passionate about mentoring knowing the significant impact it can have on helping mentees build confidence and find a sense of purpose. Beyond this, I am regularly engaged in the development of Dallington’s mentorship model to ensure this aligns with the evolving needs of young adults today.

I believe that paramount to successful mentoring is the relationship formed between mentor and mentee, and therefore seek to create a friendly, trusting and enjoyable environment for mentees. It is with this foundation that an acceptance of themselves and stronger connection to others can be formed.

I regard development as a lifelong journey and as such enjoy continuing my education and voluntary work within the field of psychology.  Currently I am pursuing Doctoral training in Counselling Psychology at City University of London.

Having grown up in the Middle East and lived in Canada before settling in London, I am attune to the unique challenges that our international mentees may face. Beyond work, I enjoy trying my hand at adventurous recipes and fawning over all animals furry, feathery and scaly!
