Dr Ayiesha Malik graduated as a doctor from the University of Birmingham in 2005, and has since been mostly working as a General Practitioner within the NHS from 2014 whilst also having an ongoing interest in mental health and chronic pain. She also works privately and employs a combination of therapeutic approaches, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (acceptance and commitment therapy), and homeopathy, to effectively address and manage symptoms.
“I trained as a doctor with the hope of helping people to heal from their illnesses, but soon realised that modern medicine offers very little in healing and found instead it manages conditions. Sadly, pharmaceutical management has done little to help underlying processes and has often made it worse.
Many patients that take medication which the doctors prescribe are unaware of the long-term side effects – the doctor-patient process is more of a tick-box exercise. I myself found healing through homeopathy, psychosomatic work and with occasional supplements. I healed myself from migraines and back pain by learning emotional regulation and acceptance. Since then, I have applied the same methodology with my clients, and I am seeing the same positive results.
I am passionate and keen for people to know that their body can be supported to heal from physical and emotional trauma.
Our minds have a huge impact on our health and well-being. Many people are searching for the answers by looking for a physical abnormality, but my philosophy really focuses on the mind as I’ve seen its power to heal.”
Dr Malik has also studied Personalised Nutrition at Middlesex University and the British Society of Ecological Medicine and is continuing with her Homeopathy studies with the faculty of homeopathy.
Dr Malik’s strengths are working with chronic pain, mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and OCD. If you are keen to embark upon the path of wellbeing, do join her!
