Did you ever stop to think that your commitments to yourself might be hurting you? The job you are eyeing, the relationship you seek, or the money you are working so hard could be the reason behind your mental distortion. These things have the potential to rob your happiness and leave you in an abyss. This is where professional help comes in handy. To help individuals connect with their life’s purpose, understand their mental models, and reframe them, mental health expert Dr. Ketam Hamdan has made therapy her life’s aim.
According to Dr. Hamdan, when traditional therapy failed to overcome her mental blocks, she resorted to a new approach to find healing from within. Integrating spirituality with psychology helped her recognize and shape her mental blocks, taking her further on the road to recovery. She says it took her fifteen long years to shape her growth and transformation. Today, with her experience, knowledge, and unique tools, she can accelerate this time for her clients.
“I believe total well-being is integrating both psychology and spirituality. We are all wired for meaning-making. Not integrating our mind, body, and soul can leave many feeling empty, searching, and yearning for more. I witnessed the growth in myself and others when we learn to love and connect all parts of ourselves.”
Dr. Hamdan is the initiator of her unique approach, ‘Total Intelligence,’ and she firmly believes in its ability to heal. It is an approach that integrates psychology, Islamic wisdom, neuroscience, and leadership ideas. It is a unique combination of her western knowledge of psychology and the eastern values of ethics she inherited from her Muslim parents.
As a thought leader, she believes that most of us living fragmented lives with spirituality separate from modern life, work, and personal life, has isolated us. Ideally, all our parts need to integrate and work together at all times. She aims to achieve this integration through her revolutionary psychological thought and help raise awareness on mental health issues using every available platform.
Her expertise focuses on overcoming psychological limitations that hold one back. She works with high-profile professionals across significant industries to guide them on the process of self-transformation and how to heal developmental wounds that get in the way of achieving their greatness. Dr. Hamdan engages with her clients in a series of deep conversations and unconventional questions: if today was your last day on earth, how would you treat people differently? When you look in the mirror, what do you see? How do you want to be remembered? How to find sustainable happiness inside out, not outside in? She does not give clients the answer but leads them back to their inner core and helps them discover their anchor.
Dr. Hamdan has proven over the years that she is a revolutionary thinker with a unique approach to healing. Learn more and connect with her on her Instagram @brainhealthdoc.
