Ahmet Mehmet

Hello, my name is Ahmet Mehmet. I am a practicing Coach, Counsellor, CBT Therapist and Hypnotherapist based in the City of London.

I am a member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) as well as being a member of the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and am a fully qualified Mindfulness Teacher and am registered with the Mindfulness Teachers Register

My career in personal development started over Twenty years ago. Starting out in the Health and Fitness industry as a personal trainer. Through observing my clients progress I became aware of how occasionally some of them would compromise their progress through self-sabotaging behaviours.

This along with my own self- development inspired me to study other ways of supporting my clients to understand exactly what it was that was stopping them from achieving what they wanted. This led me to my career in Coaching and Counselling as I wanted to support my clients to gain greater self-awareness and in doing so learn how and make empowering and lasting changes in their lives.

The way I work with clients has and continues to be heavily influenced by my own continued commitment to my personal growth and development and in addition to learning from the many clients I have worked with over the years.

I have experience of supporting clients in many different ways ranging from Goal setting and achieving success in their Careers and Personal lives through to learning how to successfully manage Anxiety and Stress as well as issues around self-confidence, Identity, Anger and Low mood and Depression.

Since qualifying in 2006 I have gone on to gain a number of qualifications in Coaching and Therapy:

Qualifications in Coaching & Therapy

•Diploma in Person Centered Counselling
•Certificate in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy
•Certificate in Hypnotherapy
•NLP Master Practitioner
•Certificate in Mindfulness
•Certificate in Clinical Supervision
•Certificate in Reflective Practice
•Certificate in Critical Incident Behaviour
•Certificate in Coaching

Qualification in Health and fitness

•Level 2 fitness instructor
•Level 2 Children's Fitness Instructor
•Level 5 Exercise on Referral specialist
•Level 4 Cancer Rehabilitation Specialist

One of the key strengths to my way of working is that I am able to rapidly identify and work with core issues that have been causing my clients difficulty and preventing them from making positive changes.

With this powerful insight I am able to hold and support my clients and work collaboratively with them towards making the necessary changes that will help them to achieve the aims and goals that they have brought to Coaching & Therapy.

I bring together my many years of experience as a Counsellor & Therapist supporting clients with very challenging underlying issues that have prevented them from moving forward in their lives and combine this with the powerful model of Human and Personal development that is Coaching. In addition to this way of working I also incorporate my experience in the Health and Fitness industry taking in to account the connection of the mind and body to provide a holistic approach to my work with my clients.

Coaching & Therapy

Coach, Counsellor & Hypnotherapist in The City of London and Central London


Through my experience as a Counsellor I have come to understand the importance of creating an empowering relationship with my clients based on acceptance, non-judgement, compassion, honesty, empathy and understanding.

Through working with my clients, I have found that when these conditions are present within our therapeutic relationship it makes it possible for my clients to feel safe and secure enough to explore the issues and fears that are causing them distress and to move towards making changes.

I am trained and experienced in various therapeutic modalities that I can blend together to create a unique model of working depending on the needs of the client.

I work with both short-term solutions focussed therapy as well as longer term therapy.

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy is the psychotherapeutic approach that looks at the link between our thoughts, feelings and behaviour and how we are influenced by this interaction which then affects how we perceive ourselves, others and the world

This diagram shows how the link between thoughts feelings and behaviours operates.

CBT also acknowledges the role of underlying beliefs, often out of our awareness, which tend to be the ‘power house’ of our thoughts, feelings and behaviours and which are crucial when making therapeutic changes when using CBT.

By taking the time to bring into our awareness what it is we are thinking and uncovering our thought patterns which have become habitual over time it is possible to bring about therapeutic changes in any distortions in our beliefs and thought patterns which may be causing us distress.

I can support you to change the way you think about an event to enable you to change the way you feel about it and consequently change how you behave which results in achieving a more helpful outcome in any given situation.

I often tend to incorporate Mindfulness exercises alongside my CBT work as this supports my clients in being able to recognise unhelpful thought, feelings and behaviour patterns without becoming overwhelmed by them.


The first question to ask yourself before embarking on your Coaching journey is ‘ What do I want’? Often this is where many people experience difficulty and for various reasons. I can support you to identify what it is you would like to gain through Coaching and to then work with you to formulate a plan to turn what it is you want into actionable steps for you to take in order to achieve your aim.

Because I have trained and worked as a Counsellor and Therapist for over 15 years, I am able to bring a deeper understanding to any issues that may be stopping you from reaching your potential and help you to overcome these along your Coaching journey.

Whatever it is you would like Coaching for I have been able to support hundreds of clients throughout my career to gain awareness and become empowered to identify their challenges, face them and make positive, life changing decisions.

Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming

All of my clients come to me at the stage where everything they have tried in order to solve their problem no longer works.

It may have been that what they were doing did at some point provide some relief from their difficulty but now what was once a solution has become the problem.

An example could be that if as a child you were told not to speak with strangers it may have been really good advice at the time yet this message would have gone deep into the unconscious (depending on how reinforced it was) and would have influenced your thoughts feelings and behaviour. Fast forward to age 30 and the same person has difficulty meeting new people and we can see how the solution can be become the problem.

I can help you to change unwanted habits and behaviours rapidly and effectively using the Psychotherapeutic approaches of Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

By using the skills of Hypnotherapy it’s possible to make lasting therapeutic changes at a very deep unconscious level which then manifest on a conscious level and is experienced in changes in thoughts, feelings and behaviours.

By understanding how we structure and remember an experience through our senses it is possible to effect positive and lasting change through the use of NLP by cognitive restructuring of our experiences to be more in tune with who we are today.

Through my work as a Coach and Therapist here are just some of the areas/issues that I have successfully supported my clients with to create positive change in their lives:

•Goal setting
•Career change/Change management
•Smoking cessation
•Anxiety management
•Anxiety disorders
•Anger management
•Building Self-Confidence
•Fear of public speaking
•Nail biting
•Over/under eating
•Relationship issues
•Sleep disturbance
•Stress management
•Unhelpful thought patterns
•And much more...

Supervision & Reflective Practice

I provide supervision and reflective practice to individual counsellors, groups and to those working in supporting professions such as mental health workers, substance misuse workers and those working with homeless and vulnerable clients.

Through supervision my supervisees are able to reflect on the work they carry out with clients and are able to identify how and when they are working effectively and also to recognise where there may be a need for further support for both clients and themselves.

By supporting my supervisees to develop more self-awareness they are able to progress as practitioners.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Counsellor, Psychotherapist & Hypnotherapist in The City of London and Central London

“Mindfulness means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non- judgmentally." Jon Kabat-Zinn

My own interest and practice of Mindfulness has and continues to inform the way I work with my clients .

Many of the difficulties we face in our lives are generated due to us not experiencing situations from the person we are today but from who we were in the past.

This is because one of the ways our minds operate is that we take information from a present situation, try and make sense of it from past experiences and then project our past experience onto the current situation and possibly into future experiences.

As you can imagine this can lead to us accessing thoughts and emotions that can leave us feeling sad, anxious or depressed and feeling trapped between a seemingly difficult past and an uncertain future. However what does happen is that we are not present to what is actually taking place.


I work mindfully with my clients to enable them to develop greater self-awareness and self-control over their thoughts and emotions and to learn how to respond to situations rather than react to them.

Some of the areas I work with Mindfulness with clients are:

•Developing a deeper relationship with the self
•Smoking cessation
•Stress Management
•Weight Management
•Changing unwanted habits
