    I came to The Private Therapy clinic because Of a family death and I am now being treated for the abuse I suffered as a child that I have never had professional help for. My whole life has been blighted by this and now thanks to Dr Aisha I will be free of pain and suffering so for that I have to give thanks as she has literally saved my life!

    I was a bit Hesitate at first, But I had a good first therapy for me, good communication that made me more open and comfortable.

  • Anon

    Easy to register and book sessions in an organised manner as the clinic charges clients on time with a detailed confirmation email. Treatment overall has brought a positive outcome on my life and very satisfied with my therapist. Highly recommended for anyone seeking that extra help they might not be receiving or anyone who needs to just open up and be assisted by a professional.

    I have found after 2 sessions that this therapy is extremely helpful. The atmosphere and ambience is so calming, as well as the practitioner. It really is so beneficial in so many ways.

    Acting on behalf of our client, we instructed Dr Aisha Ali of your Clinic. The service was good. Dr Aisha Ali responded very well to our communication and the report which we required on behalf of our client was produced sooner than expected, which was very good. We will use Dr Aisha Ali again on behalf of our clients. C Aigbokhan, Solicitor, Chris & Co Solicitors

    Good impression of the clinic. I’m satisfied with the support I get from my therapist

  • Anon

    I came to Dr Aisha with extreme anxiety. Within 1 session she was able to help me understand the root cause of my emotions. It is a work in progress but her caring and calm nature has allowed me to open up and I enjoy our sessions very much as she teaches me more about myself and techniques to overcome my personal challenges.

  • Anon

    I’ve only had two sessions so far, but am already feeling better than I have in months. I would recommend treatment to anyone suffering with anxiety/panic!

  • Anon

    Aisha has been so helpful to date. The experience has been comfortable and personal, I feel very at ease during the sessions and have been able to get appointments in very quick succession of each other. Thank you.

    Dr Aisha Ali is helping me a lot with my anxiety. As well as dealing with the heart of the problem, she has taught me to see a lot of things under another perspective and use good techniques to relax on a regular basis. I would highly recommend her.

  • Anon

    CBT sessions with Dr Aisha have been incredibly helpful, and I, as well as others, have noticed a positive change in myself since I have started sessions with her. That we use a variety of therapy practices and techniques rather than just one has been really good because it means I have learned different ways of finding solutions to problems I might be having.

  • Anon

    Working with Dr. Aisha I have been able to gain control over behaviours and thought processes that were driving my anxiety and depression since my teenage years. The wide array of skills and techniques used to address these issues have left me a better and happier person with the right tools to face the future.

  • Anon

    For many years I had suffered from depression, anxiety and emotional regulation problems which had never really been properly understood or addressed by doctors and counsellors in the past. The Private Therapy Clinic was immediately able to diagnose my condition and straight away provide me with the right kind of therapy to move forward in my life. Aisha’s warm, patient and compassionate approach has really helped me to understand my past and connect it to the re-occurring negative behavioral and thought patters that I have demonstrated throughout my life. Through working with Aisha, I am now able to identify such unhelpful behaviors at an early stage and have learned skills to better deal with them. Although I still have a lot of work to do, I feel I have come such a long way with the help of The Private Therapy Clinic – for the first time, I feel like it is possible to lead more positive, fulfilled life! Thank you Aisha, I will be forever grateful for the insights, counsel and support you have given me.

    I have seen other therapists in the past but Dr. Aisha Ali is the one who has helped me tremendously. She really knows her field and can assess what treatment suits you best. She is also very friendly, warm and non-judgemental. I would recommend her to anyone.

  • Anon

    Very good service, I feel very comfortable and at ease at the Clinic. Can’t recommend Dr. Ali enough. Also very good location and central. Only negative thing I could think of is sometimes there is a 5min delay and once they booked two people at the same time when the new booking system was introduced.

  • Anon

    I see Dr. Ali every week for psychodynamic and CBT therapy since December 2015. I really enjoy my sessions and understand myself more than before starting the treatment. I also manage my anxiety better. I consider myself lucky to have her as my therapist. She’s been really helpful and I can finally see myself recover. I would advise to anyone that needs support or help to go and see her.

  • Anon

    My therapist made me feel at ease about everything. She listened and assessed me on the best thing. She advise me to come back to go over techniques to over come my anxieties. It was nice to actually have a person listen to you who knows nothing about you and judges on what they are hearing. I have found this very helpful even after the first session.
