    Grab a seat, it's nice to meet you!

    I'm Toltu Tufa, the founder of Shura Psychology!


    I'm an Australian based practicing psychologist, a female psychologist and a Muslim psychologist.


    As an award winning TEDx speaker and educator, I'm known for creating inclusive and culturally sensitive practices, even in the trickiest of workplaces.


    It is the hallmark of my work, and along with my focus on healthcare professionals, uplifting people like you is the driving force behind my culture of care.

    Here's what you need to know...

    With almost two decades of experience working in healthcare, I support diverse medical professionals, including directors, doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and paramedics.


    Of course, I could also tell you all the fun stuff about myself, like my Myers Briggs Personality Profile (yes, I’m an ESFJ!), or that my go-to app on my phone is Duolingo, because it encapsulates my love of languages and connection.


    But as a founder of a psychology practice, I understand the formal stuff matters too.


    So if you haven't seen my Linkedin profile, swipe to learn more about my training and clinical practice.

    My training and tools

    As a female psychologist and a Muslim psychologist, my style is always person centred.


    I use a 'trauma-informed' approach which means I will interact with you in a ways that protect your trust and safety.


    When you’re in a session with me, you will notice my warm and acknowledging approach; I will encourage you towards change in a direct and empathetic way.


    Some of my clinical tools that I use include Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and mindfulness based strategies.

    I know what it feels like to be weighed down by your own plate.

    The overwhelming feeling of having too much on your plate is probably more common than you might want to admit.


    I've been there myself, and I found solace in discovering a safe space to navigate through it all: there are truths to the saying:


    "A problem shared is a problem halved".


    And that's exactly what I offer you: a trusted space to workshop and experience the life-changing impact of finding the tools to shift your perspective and practice.


    No more burying your head in your hands, no more problem sweeping under the rug or braving burnout in the hope that life challenges will somehow ' sort themselves out'.


    I've discovered a more fulfilling pathway and I want to help you find your way too!


    The first step is all it takes.
