Saidat is a highly qualified BACP accredited Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapist, a Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist and an Addictions Specialist who helps individuals, couples, families and groups gain the psychological awareness to improve health and well-being.
Saidat has a wealth of experience working with people from all walks of life, cultural backgrounds, religion and sexual orientation during his time providing therapies, commissioning health services and developing primary care GP services within the National Health Service (NHS).
His approach to psychotherapy is influenced by his own eventful and often challenging life experiences; which gives him deeper empathy and insight into people’ problems, past and present, and a greater understanding of why particular behaviours are adopted and used as coping mechanisms.
The theories he embraces are:
Person-Centred (a non-directive humanistic approach that deals with the ways in which individuals perceive themselves consciously rather than how a therapist can interpret their unconscious thoughts or ideas).
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (focuses on how thoughts and perceptions affect the way we feel and behave)
Psychodynamic (sees human functioning as based upon the interaction of drives and forces within us, particularly unconscious ones)
Transactional Analysis (TA) (is modern psychology that involves a set of practical conceptual tools designed to promote personal growth and change and a method to improve communication).
Gestalt Therapy (perceives self-awareness as the key to personal growth and developing full potential, concentrating on ‘what is happening in the present moment)
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy is an extensively researched, effective psychotherapy method proven to help people recover from trauma and other distressing life experiences, including PTSD, anxiety, depression, and panic disorders.
