Zeina El Shazly

Zeina graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of St Andrews, Scotland and a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Sciences from University College London (UCL).

Zeina trained in the NHS in London for 6 months, where she worked with people with dementia, mainly Alzheimer’s. She also trained and worked at the Behman Psychiatric Hospital for a year and a half in both the psychology department and in the department of substance abuse and addiction. There, she delivered regular individual and group therapy sessions for people suffering from substance misuse problems along with depression, and anxiety. Zeina also works with clients who struggle with low self-esteem, loss of identity, anger management issues, and other difficult emotions such as grief.

Her studies and her practical experiences provided her with the skills needed to carry out individual and group therapy sessions for people of various cultural backgrounds, ages and mental health problems, applying a highly individualized and client-focused integrated approach that utilizes cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic techniques.

Zeina believes in the importance of providing clients with a safe, non-judgmental, empathetic and nurturing environment that makes them feel comfortable in sharing their stories. She believes that each person’s experience is unique and that therapy is a collaborative process, where a psychologist’s role is to assist the client in challenging their own negative thoughts and building on their strengths to become more resilient.
