SAMA EISSA

Counseling Psychologist   

Sama is an Individual and Couple Therapist. She earned her Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the American University in Cairo (AUC). She has a wide experience in working with various age groups from adolescence, young adults, adults, and partners.
 

Sama practiced in the Psychological Counselling and Training Center at AUC. In addition, she is an Enneagram practitioner that provides an accurate description of the core structures of the nine personality types.
 

Sama conducted several workshops that were aimed to help individuals with anxiety, low self-esteem, and stress management.
 

She utilizes several approaches based on the client’s needs; however, she is grounded in Gestalt Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused, Person-Centered, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
 

Sama’s point of view is that therapy is a safe space where you gain insight and understanding into your behavior, beliefs, feelings, and relationship issues. Where you are the expert on your life and work collaboratively with the therapist to resolve unhealthy behaviors or habits and learn healthy adaptive coping skills.
 

Sama believes that the client and the therapist in the therapy room have a dialogue that communicates their phenomenological perspectives. Differences in perspectives become the focus of experimentation and continued dialogue. The goal is for clients to become aware of what they are doing, how they are doing it, and how they can change themselves, and at the same time, to learn to accept and value themselves.
 

Through the humanistic approach, Sama aims to help clients get more of what they want and less of what they don’t want. Her philosophy is to help the client minimize their suffering and maximize their freedom by means that are not destructive to themselves or others.
