Hi, I am Lisa…
I am a Chartered Clinical Psychologist and Director of Dr Lisa Ahmad and Associates. I have 20+ years of experience within the NHS and for the Military. I have had a successful independent practice for about 15 years now and really love my work. I am passionate about helping clients move towards change, psychological health and wellbeing. I have experience in working with a range of difficulties (such as anxiety, trauma, eating disorders) and can help you to move towards a life that feels in line with who you are and want to be.
My ethos is to help you to learn about how your unique brain works, to feel connected again, both to yourself and to others, and to enjoy, love and laugh again. Change is always possible!
I work from a trauma informed model and draw on my extensive training and experience in psychology and coaching to find the best and most helpful way forward for you. I am an Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR) accredited clinician and also draw on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT) models to support my clients.
