City Road Therapy – Professional face-to-face & online Therapy in London

Sabbir Ahmed

Do you suffer from counterproductive, intrusive thoughts? Are you critical of yourself, ignoring your achievements and strengths? Do you struggle with self-confidence and believing in yourself? Perhaps, you strive to make changes to your life, but no matter how hard you strive, you find that the same thinking patterns and responses occur to you repeatedly. You may find yourself stuck in lacklustre, even toxic relationships; worse, returning to them often. You may find that you struggle with your self-image, whether physical, financial, interpersonal, spiritual or social. No matter what specific challenges you face with self-esteem or relationships, I am here to help. As an experienced psychotherapist in the NHS and private practice, I often work with clients who report these issues.

My name is Sabbir, and I am an integrative psychotherapist. I am here to guide you through your current challenges, and explore the reasons why you may face them – together, we can then work towards a plan of action.

Prior to working in the NHS, I have studied at the Tavistock and Portman Mental Health Trust, a world-class institute specialising in psychotherapy training, alongside high quality mental health care and support.

In addition, I have studied CBT at the internationally renowned Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience of King’s College London.

Building upon this, I offer an evidence-based integrative approach, drawing upon my extensive experience and training.

Psychotherapy with Sabbir

I provide face-to-face and virtual psychotherapy, counselling and couple therapy for adults and adolescents, living in the UK and internationally.

I have received substantial training at some of the world’s most renowned mental health institutes, including the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, King’s College London and St George’s Hospital, London.

I use an integrative approach, drawing upon approaches such as CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) and DBT (Dialectical Behavioural Therapy), in addition to mindfulness, psychoanalytical and systemic therapies.
