Hi, I am Dr Sonia Ahmed, a chartered counselling psychologist with over 12 years of clinical experience, who is registered with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC).
I believe that each person's experience is individual and unique and that there is not a �one size fits all� when it comes to therapy. Therefore my therapeutic approach takes on an integrative stance, in which I will often draw upon several therapeutic models and techniques, tailored to each individual's needs. Regardless of your treatment plan, developing a strong therapeutic relationship, will be the core of therapy. This means that sessions will be based on empathy, trust, warmth, non-judgmental and compassion, whilst being adaptive to each of your needs.
Areas of interest
I work with adults and older adults ages 18+.
I have significant experience working with a range of issues and difficulties, varying from day-to-day stress to severe mental health issues. These include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, stress, grief and loss, relationship issues, amongst others.
I specialize in working with trauma and PTSD presentations. These can include post-traumatic stress disorder from single-event traumas, complex trauma, and developmental trauma.
This also includes issues such as depression, anxiety, and relationship issues, which are often a result of unprocessed trauma.
Furthermore, I have wide experience working with the kind of complex trauma that can result from neglect and abuse in childhood or adulthood. Nightmares can be a common cause of unprocessed trauma.
As well as EMDR, I am trained in the dream completion technique which has been clinically proven to combat nightmares as part of your trauma therapy.
