About me

Hello, and welcome! If you or a loved one are looking for help with mental health issues, I am here to help. 

I am Sabbir Ahmed, an experienced psychotherapist (UKCP), working in the NHS and in private practice in Central London. I work with children, young people and adults with psychological difficulties and complex needs. I also specialise in couple/relationship work.

In the NHS and private practice, I have had the privilege to work with clients with various psychological difficulties, such as anxiety, depression, bipolar and schizophrenia. I have also worked with young people with ASD, ADHD and challenging behaviours.

I would like to end by saying that I love what I do, and always have. I prioritise building a warm, trusting and non-judgemental relationship with my clients, where they feel safe to explore their most difficult experiences, feelings and thoughts in depth.

I listen to my clients’ concerns attentively, to get to the root of the problem and suggest solutions.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am accredited with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and have an MA in Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy, and a clinical diploma in Family/Systemic Therapy.

In addition, I have studied CBT-based psychological intervention at Kings’ College London, and DBT with the Association of Psychological Therapy (APT).

MA in Psychotherapy (Middlesex University)
• Clinical Diploma in Family & Systemic Psychotherapy (St. George's Hospital)
• Postgraduate Cert. Emotional Wellbeing in Children and Families (Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust)
• Postgraduate Cert. in IAPT Supervision (King's College University of London)

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
