About Me

Reem Shelhi MA

Contemporary Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, Group Psychotherapist & Clinical Supervisor
Founder of www.alloneworld.org & developer of Systemic Human Exploration

I am a senior psychotherapist with extensive experience, working with people of all ages and backgrounds, to find ways of dealing with life’s difficulties and challenges in a therapeutic setting. I provide a safe space to explore difficult emotional territory and together discover ways of tackling the issues that arise.

My training has included hypno-psychotherapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Gestalt and Group Analytic Work. All these disciplines allow for a range of approaches which best suits the issues being discussed. In this way, I can offer a client led practice tailored to specific individual needs.

Approaching therapy for the first time, or even coming back after an absence, can be daunting and in itself cause anxiety. My starting point is always to recognise the person and understand the reasons why therapy is being sought. With over twelve years of clinical experience in a diverse number of settings I have worked with many, many clients creating conditions which enable people to feel safe discussing distressing or even taboo thoughts and feelings.

I specialize in treating abuse, addiction, anger, anxiety, loss, bereavement, depression, relationships, sexuality, gender issues, LGBT+, shame, and trauma. I divide my time between working in the NHS, for charity organisation run therapy centres, and in private practice.

I work in English and Arabic.
