Dr Ahmed Saeed Yahya

Position at Priory

Dr Yahya is employed as a full time NHS consultant in female psychiatric intensive care at the Maudsley Hospital in South London. He supervises the training and development of junior doctors alongside his clinical role.

Research Interests

Dr Yahya’s research interests have mainly been in new and emerging treatments associated with psychiatric disorders, as well as issues associated with neuropsychiatry, eating disorders, brain stimulation therapies and occupational psychiatry. Dr Yahya has published nearly 30 peer reviewed scientific articles to date. In addition, he has presented poster presentations internationally and has contributed articles to multiple editions of the Royal College (RCPsych) newsletter. Dr Yahya regularly peer reviews academic papers for high impact factor journals. He has recently supported the Nature research group in reviewing articles being considered for publication.

I am passionate about early intervention and prevention work in mental illness in which I have developed a particular interest in promoting good mental health to reduce the chances of ill health. 

I work collaboratively with my clients in order to do a thorough assessment of their mental health and then guide my clients to a personalised, evidenced-based and holistic model of mental wellbeing.

Following an initial assessment (which can take 1-2 sessions depending on the complexity and history), a key part of my practice is to deliver individualised psychological wellbeing education. I also provide evidenced-based therapeutic techniques as a toolkit for wellbeing including for example; how to improve sleep.
