Misbah holds a BSc in Psychology, a doctorate in clinical psychology (DClinPsy), a diploma in CBT and a qualification in systemic practice.
Misbah has experience of working with a range of presentations including complex trauma and the whole spectrum of problems related to anxiety and depression. Misbah has expertise in psychological approaches that treat trauma, including childhood trauma, and has trained in both Schema therapy and Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). Misbah has also worked in health settings in the NHS where illness/treatment related trauma have caused difficulties for people undergoing regular medical procedures.
Misbah will offer Schema Therapy at Talk in The Bay and is in the process of becoming certified.
Other than complex trauma, anxiety and depression Misbah will work with issues such as abuse, addiction, anger, bullying, cancel, childhood sexual abuse, eating disorders, emotional dysregulation, infertility, insomnia/sleep disorder, low self-esteem, obsessive compulsive disorder, panic disorder, personality disorder, phobias, post-traumatic stress disorder, rape & sexual assault, relationships, self harm, sex addiction, stress (including work related). Please note this list in not exhaustive.
EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) is the treatment of choice for PTSD and is
also effective for traumatic experiences in general. EMDR is a specialist, integrative model that
includes CBT, hypnosis and neurobiological mechanisms to trauma. Thus, it is suggested that EMDR is more effective than simply replaying or attempting to ‘rescript’ traumatic experiences alone.
