My Approach

Hi and welcome to my profile page. I am Hannaa, a fully qualified psychotherapist, counsellor and a post-graduate psychologist. I offer safe and confidential (telephone and online) therapy.

In the therapy sessions, I work to create a space for you to reflect and explore freely while feeling heard and supported. I respect and value the uniqueness of each person's experience and identity. The approach I use is integrative; this means I integrate a wide range of therapeutic modalities according to your needs. The work is relational and draws from person-centred therapy, object relations theory, cognitive behavioural therapy, relational psychotherapy and body psychotherapy.

Clients shared that they felt helped, hopeful and found new perspectives and meaning in what previously felt like an impossible and stuck experiences at the start of the therapeutic journey. Since 2009, I have been experientially and academically studying the rich psychotherapeutic field and psychology (such as positive psychology), which led me to believe that there are a number of ways available to connect with one's own strength and ability to change and grow.

If you are interested to learn more, please check my website.

You are welcome to contact me directly with any questions you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you.

About Me

Being culturally mixed and growing up between Europe and Africa, I developed a passion and fascination towards cultures. In the past 7 years I specialised in providing culturally-sensitive integrative therapy to diverse ethnic groups (in the UK and abroad) in the charity sector and in private practice. I learned a lot listening and working with homeless clients, refugees and asylum seekers. The experience of working at Waterloo Community Counselling, Room to Heal and Helen Bamber Foundation with a number of people from diverse backgrounds is priceless to me. Among other, I worked with trauma and abuse; domestic violence and sexual exploitation, schizophrenia, and substance misuse.

I am a Psychotherapist, counsellor and Post-graduate psychologist, with additional training in trauma-focused therapy.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I work to provide a calm space for you to explore your anxeities and fears. I have over 8 years of experience working with clients who experiences high levels of anxeity, sever PTSD and complex trauma.
I am experienced in working with clients who experienced loss and bereavement, including the Grenfell community and displaced people.
Finding yourself feeling low, sad and lacking interest can be particulary hard. I appreciate that it takes a lot out of you to seek help. In the past, I have worked with a number of clients low in mood who found a space in therapy to explore their feelings.
Along side my online private practice, I offer online one-to-one therapy to an international client group in various languages inside and outside of the UK. (https://www.openbriefing.org/about/team/hannaa-el-sayed/).
Being well-immersed in the relational psychotherapy module, I have a special interest in working with relational difficulties.
