Saidat Khan

Saidat
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’)

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.

Executive Advantage through Transformational Psychological Coaching:

‘Have you experienced a wide range of coaching styles and interventions, learned practical techniques on voice command, body language, posture and breathing. but you still feel that the ‘Executive Anxiety’ or ‘Internal Barrier’ keeps popping up and affecting your confidence. Do you feel that if you opened up and admitted to any form of issue relating to your mental health you would receive negative consequences? This may include: losing your job or respect of colleagues, friends and family’. 
 
If you can identify with any part of the above, you may like to try a coaching approach that will give you the Executive which is associated with our internal innate drivers that influence our reactions and behaviours to such experience. 
 
This is a pragmatic, consultative but challenging coaching style that investigates and challenges your conscious and unconscious values, beliefs, motivators and your sense of being. It will provide a framework for identifying the reasons why you as a leader get stressed under pressure and strategies for coping with these difficulties at any moment in time to make better decisions and choices. 
 
By increasing psychological resilience through emotional awareness of self, you will become more aware of emotions of others around you enabling you to cope with emotional pressure whilst instantaneously make rapid behavioural changes. These fundamental transitions of self-growth will transform you as a stand out individual leader who will use empathy to engage, motivate and sustain teams that will increase organisation’s performance and business results.  
   
‘The best leaders/managers are known to have a high level of emotional quotient (EQ) compared to those with a high intellectual quotient (IQ) The client who is able to contain emotions will communicate in a clear and decisive manner that will be responsive rather than reactive’. ‘Daniel Goleman’.

  • Are you lacking confidence and need to put your life matters into perspective?
  • People come to me because they want answers to situations they are facing and to learn how to organise and structure a plan for change.

This may include: 

  • Making positive changes both personally and professionally

There isn’t an issue or a problem that I cannot manage. My psychology and coaching experience along with my own personal and eventful life experiences gives me a greater and deeper sense of understanding of empathy with people’s life challenges. It enables me to contain overwhelming emotions and difficulties that are presented or arise in the room, whilst using my skill to focus and manage the goal and outcome that is being set.
