Saidat Khan

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:

leafPerson 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).

leafCognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) (focuses on how thoughts and perceptions affect the way we feel and behave)

leafPsychodynamic (sees human functioning as based upon the interaction of drives and forces within us, particularly unconscious ones)

LeafTransactional Analysis (TA) (is a modern psychology that involves a set of practical conceptual tools designed to promote personal growth and change and a method to improve communication).

LeafGestalt Therapy (perceives self-awareness as the key to personal growth and developing full potential, concentrating on ‘what is happening in the present moment’)

When you sexually act out, does it cause you emotional pain?

Does your preoccupation of the mind lead to rituals?
Has your sexual behaviour been a progressive downward spiral and with negative consequences?

Saidat works with the notion that we are all born with an attachment to a relationship and that we all need relationships for our survival. The client-therapist relationship is the most fundamental part of the therapy that produces positive changes.

Saidat includes goals and targets within his therapeutic model and as a way of measuring the client’s progress and outcomes, will include a direct and challenging approach. He believes that this style of engagement continues to build trust in the relationship and drives the development and improvement of the client’s health and well-being. This style of practice also provides a structure that helps to increase confidence and motivation to make life-changing decisions.
