Hamid Farahani

​C​ounsellor, Surrey

Hi, my name is Hamid.

I am an ADHD assessor and specialist, trained at The UK Adult ADHD Network (UKAAN) and have a Certificate in "Diagnosis and Assessment of Adults with ADHD". I have also completed a course at King's College London, "Understanding ADHD: Current Research and Practice". I am currently working in collaboration with a Consultant Psychiatrist, and we offer full ADHD assessment and report for adults.


I am also an integrative counsellor, accredited with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society and Accredited by Addiction Professionals.

Let me explain a little bit about my model of psychological intervention. First, I value providing a kind, compassionate, supportive experience and treating everyone with respect. I use the principles of Dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Metacognitive Therapy (MCT) and CBT in my integrative approach. 


With the help of Brief Solution-Focused Therapy, a short-term, goal-focused therapeutic approach, you and I will focus on your strengths and help you improve your mental health and well-being. My vision is to use my skills and professional training to tailor a treatment for your needs effectively. 

I use Systematic Family Therapy to help families/couples solve their issues and the symptoms of various mental health conditions, primarily ADHD, PTSD, Trauma, depression, anxiety disorders and substance use disorder (SUD). 

I was trained as a mental health first aider and have been involved in supporting those who have experienced major natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods. I worked as a counsellor at Inspire Partnership, a community drug and alcohol service in Sutton, helping individuals and their families. Moreover, I worked with refugees and asylum seekers in the UK who suffered from mental illnesses.

I have completed my PGDip at London South Bank University. I obtained my BA degree in clinical psychology in 2005. I have undertaken courses in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Transactional Analysis and Mindfulness and have done courses like CBT with Older People at UEA (University of East Anglia); Mindfulness for Well-being and Peak Performance at Monash University; Understanding Anxiety, Depression and CBT at the University of Reading and Psychological First Aid - RAPID Model by Johns Hopkins University. I am also an integrative counsellor, accredited Professional with the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society and Accredited Professional by Addiction Professionals.
