Simi Warah
Integrative art psychotherapist/therapy team lead
Simi Warah

Simi is a HCPC accredited integrative arts psychotherapist, who has a Master’s Degree from the Institute for Arts in Therapy & Education (University of East London). Simi works with various models in order to tailor therapy to the individual’s specific needs, and uses attachment theory as the starting point of building a therapeutic relationship with patients. She can utilise a wide range of creative approaches within sessions, including verbal, imagination, and use of metaphor, if patients choose not to engage with art materials.

Simi has worked extensively with addiction, eating disorders and complex trauma; including with survivors of childhood sexual abuse and domestic violence. Simi has spent 20 years working in management positions in various health and social care settings, including NHS psychiatric hospitals, prisons, community substance misuse services, and other voluntary sector agencies.

Position at Priory

Simi has been employed as an integrative arts psychotherapist at Priory Hospital Woking since August 2021 and in addition to her therapy work, she is also the team lead for the general psychiatric therapy team, ensuring the day-to-day operation of the inpatient and day care group work programmes, and providing line management to over 20 other therapists. Simi is also one of the designated safeguarding leads at Woking.
