Wajeeha Amin – Trainer & Therapist
I’m a wellbeing expert. Working as a professional therapist and relationship coach has taught me a lot about how we can all live happier lives at home, in our jobs, and through meaningful, fulfilling relationships.
It has always fascinated me how our minds can both help us and harm us. It’s made me spend my life learning about what drives us, what we crave vs. what we need to be happy, what it is that holds us back. It’s made me train in therapies that help people discover these secrets for themselves.

What I do: I get people back on track and feeling good. Running my practice from Central London and East London, I provide transformative talking therapies, hypnotherapy, coaching techniques, group workshops, masterclasses and consultancy services to anyone needing to make a change in their lives, or wanting to help others do the same.
My training: A professional, qualified psychotherapeutic counsellor and hypnotherapist, I’m a member of The Counselling Society and The General Hypnotherapy Register, as well as being on the CNHC (Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council), used by and recommended by the NHS.
What I want to give you: I want to prove that every life can change. Providing a safe, nurturing place to grow from and creative therapeutic support that really works, everyone who comes to me feeling stuck can find the hope and help they need to powerfully and joyfully steer their life to a new place of lasting well-being.
