About Me

About Dr Annahita Nezami

(CPsychol, DPsych, MSc, BSc)

I am a chartered counselling psychologist with almost 20 years’ experience of working in mental health. I am the founder of Dr Annahita Nezami Therapies and have been running my private practice since January 2017. I am trained in Psychodynamic theory and principles, Person Centred Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Schema Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is central to the process of change, and aim to create a therapeutic space that is safe, respectful, and contained. I always work collaboratively, whether with clients or professionals, and draw on psychological theories and disciplines grounded in scientific evidence. I am determined, compassionate, conscientious, creative and justifiable in my approach and take pride in all my professional work. I have applied research experience in areas of forensic psychology and counselling psychology. My interests surround wellbeing, attachment, trauma, anxiety, depression, and personality disorders.
