I would recommend Mimi as a therapist

She was clear and transparent and I felt respected throughout the sessions.  She kept the sessions structured and offered practical solutions to my perceived complex problems.  I felt safe and heard.

I cannot recommend Mimi highly enough

I started therapy with Mimi having never had therapy before, and not knowing what to expect. However, from start to finish the time spent with Mimi was fantastic. She took the time to listen and understand what was bothering me, what I wanted to achieve, and helped me come to an outcome that felt right for me. At no point did I feel rushed, or pressured and I have come away with a greater understanding of my mental health, exercises I can follow and ways I can help myself. I’ve also come away with a plan for the future, which feels realistic. I cannot recommend Mimi highly enough. She has helped me immeasurably and I feel very grateful that I contacted her in the first place.

Mimi was really supportive and helpful

Mimi was really supportive and helpful during our sessions. The meetings were very well structured and she was extremely professional and helpful. She has really opened my eyes to the possibilities of CBT/hypnotherapy based treatments, and i thoroughly recommend her to anyone looking for a therapist in these areas. Thanks again Mimi!

I could not recommend Mimi enough

I could not recommend Mimi enough.  I found her online and we arranged an initial consultation whereby I instantly knew I wanted to work with her – she is warm, compassionate and empathetic whilst practical and extremely effective in her methods.  I had 14 sessions over the course of around 6 months and I would look forward to them every time because I knew I would feel so much better coming out of them.  It felt like we were a real team and all the work and progress made has completely changed my life and way of thinking.  Thank you for everything Mimi!

Mimi was very warming, calming and open

In my sessions, Mimi really helped me to find the confidence with my trichotillimania and how to cope with it in day-to-day scenarios.  She was very warming, calming and open when discussing strategies which made me feel really at ease!  Thank you

Mimi is very approachable and understanding

From the initial telephone consultation through to the session itself, Mimi is very approachable and understanding.  I had apprehensions about whether I’d be able to quit, but the techniques learned and the recordings have helped.  It’s been a couple of months now, and while it is still challenging, I feel I’m getting stronger each day.

I am now much more confident going forward

Mimi is a sympathetic and sensitive hypnotherapist.  She asks appropriate questions to understand my needs.  She helps me relax under hypnosis and deal with my symptom.  I am now much more confident going forward.

She helped me relax

Seeing Mimi has definitely helped me achieve my goal.  She helped me relax in an environment which was unfamiliar to me.

I found every session beneficial

I was very fortunate throughout my sessions to benefit from the input support and encouragement given by Mimi.  I found every session beneficial.  Mimi enabled me to work pro-actively with her on the issues troubling me.  Her approach was supportive and positive.  The various activities and suggested tasks helped me in every way

About Me

Mimi Fakhri MSc PgDip EBPT Dip. CBH GQHP

I'm passionate about helping people who struggle with anxiety, worry or stress to reclaim their lives.  I do this using a mixture of cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT), hypnosis and other evidence-based techniques (such as mindfulness and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) matching the evidence about what works to your individual needs and preferences.

I want you to learn useful tools and skills that help you to help yourself. My aim is that you become your own therapist, not reliant on me.

I worked for over 15 years in corporate business, so I understand first hand the pressures of a fast-paced, pressure-filled environment and the difficulties of juggling this with family life.

I have an evidence-based philosophy, which means I believe you have the right to treatment which is based on sound scientific research. I keep up to date with the latest scientific research and my approach is based on the best up to date evidence.

I'm accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) and General Hypnotherapy Register (GHR), and am registered with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC).  I am bound to the stringent Codes of Ethics of all of these organisations.

I am also a teacher, coach and assessor for the UK College of Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy, and am a clinical supervisor for other hypnotherapists.

It’s really important that you work with someone you feel comfortable with, so please feel free to call me for a chat so you can get a feel for how I could help (or, if you prefer, send me a message).

To find out more about how cognitive behavioural therapy or hypnotherapy could help you, I offer a free, no-strings 15 minute telephone or Zoom consultation.
