Amal Mohammed graduated from the American University in Cairo (AUC) with an MA in Counseling Psychology as well as a BA in psychology with a minor in sociology. She has been a member of Psi Chi (The International Honor Society in Psychology) since 2019. She is also a member of APA (The American Psychological Association) since 2022. While completing her master’s degree, Amal conducted clinical work at the Psychological Counseling Services and Training Center at AUC, Al Rakhawy Hospital and Serenity Center in Maadi. Besides working with clients in person, Amal was also trained and gained experience in conducting online therapy sessions. Amal is now working at Maadi Psychology Center in Degla.
During her training, Amal gained experience working with clients who are dealing with borderline personality disorder (BPD), Major Depressive Disorder (MDD), anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, OCD, and relationship issues.
Amal's approach to therapy is based on Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Person-Centered approaches. She is also now pursuing her training in DBT with Behavioral Tech and will be internationally certified to apply the DBT skills with her clients at the end of the coming year. She believes that the key for clients to heal is to provide them with an environment that is based on validation, support, and active listening. She helps clients to better understand themselves, and be more self-aware of their core issues, needs, and values.
Amal's mission is to help clients have better lives, connect with themselves, and fight against the stigma that exists around mental health.
