About Dr. Ketam Hamdan
Dr. Ketam Hamdan is a licensed therapist, educator, presenter, and influencer. The negative stigma of mental health within the middle-eastern culture and her frustration with traditional talk therapy left her feeling hopeless. After spending over a decade, learning from the best thought leaders around the world and integrating the things she learned, she noticed a significant increase in her overall wellbeing. She became determined to use both her personal experiences and professional mental health knowledge to help demystify the healing journey for others.
Her organization Brain Health is about connecting head, heart, and body. Research reveals we have three separate brain pathways, leading to the head, heart, and body. It’s vital to nurture each neural pathway to ensure optimal wellbeing. She is passionate about Brain Health because it’s replacing the term “mental health” with “brain health” to stress how physical and treatable mental health conditions are, with evidence based strategies backed by science.
Dr. Hamdan wears multiple hats. She runs her own private practice, Brain Health, while also co-founding and running a non-profit Mental Health team for Annisa Hope Center’s trauma clients. She, also, trains others mental health professionals on effective therapy strategies for complex trauma clients and couples counseling. As well as, conducts self-development, trauma, and marital workshops.
Dr. Hamdan does not see educating and helping people as a profession, she sees it as her life work.
Thank you for being here and taking the steps for growth.
