About me

My name is Salma Bhatti.

I am a registered psychoanalytic psychotherapist. I have a long career working in the NHS mental health services and in private clinical practice. 

I offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy for a wide range of emotional, physical and spiritual difficulties. The aim of the work is to work together to understand and make sense of the inner patterns that can undermine every day interactions. By better clarifying the situations we may repeatedly find ourselves in, we can see what we want and choose how to move forward. 

When we are disconnected from our lives, we neither feel motivated or interested to carry on. The therapy serves as a private space to develop confident and resilient ways of being and feeling greater connectedness not only with others and oneself but a more fuller engagement with life itself, creating a desire and energy to progress. It is an open approach to explore the big questions that impact our lives. 

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified psychotherapist, trained in the psychoanalytic tradition and a member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy.
