I believe that a safe, supportive relationship is important for deep, personal healing. I use traditional psychotherapy and adjunctive therapies allowing one to go to the very core of self where change truly occurs. I am skilled in Hypnotherapy, EMDR , breath therapy and sex therapy.
I am passionate about helping women, teens, and couples that feel stuck in emotional and behavioral pattern that keep them anxious, sad, disconnected, and hurt figure things out and find new ways toward handling emotions and finding better ways to connect to themselves and those they love.
My name is Sadat Malik and I am a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist. I work with a wide range of issues, specialising in helping people who suffer from depression, low self-esteem, anxiety, and/or relationship issues -- be it with a significant other, family members, socially or at work.
What I love about being a Psychotherapist is having the capacity to be a holder of hope. A holder of hope is a person who can join with you in the darkest hour, in the depths of despair and can see you as whole and joyful and can hold that vision even if you cannot see it for yourself yet.
Professional counselor since 1993. I worked as a public mental health clinician 1994-2000. Although grounded in counselling & psychotherapy methods (cognitive/behavioral, psychodynamic, family & brief therapy models), I specialize in cutting edge mind/body/energy/spirit modalities.
People come to therapy looking for solutions to real-world problems. My therapeutic approach is interactive, strength-based and practical. Using empathy, humor, and an objective perspective, I will collaborate with you to develop an effective, down-to-earth approach to your current life challenges.
I provide professional, results-oriented counseling with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method that more quickly and effectively brings about positive changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also work extensively with couples and family members on relationship issues.
As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20+ years, I understand that the relationship and "fit" between client and therapist is paramount. I work hard to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. We can work together to help you feel less stuck, and more in control.
