Dr Mirza Wasi Mohamad
Clinical Director
Dr Mirza Wasi Mohamad

"I believe in treating mental health conditions holistically and using variety of biological, behavioural and various holistic approaches alongside psychological methods"

I became a consultant in 2006 and have worked in various settings including community, crisis and home treatment as well as in-patient settings. I was also involved in senior management roles and worked as a Clinical Director in the NHS . After working in the NHS for over 20 years, I have established my own private practice.

I have keen interest in the evolutionary aspect of psychology and psychiatric disorders and whilst I have experience of treating a range of conditions, my special interest is in mood and neurodevelopmental disorders including ADHD . I have also developed expertise in the diagnosis of autism and have trained with the National Autistic Society and also undertaken training in ADIR and ADOS .

In the last few years I have used new treatment methods like TMS and more recently medical cannabis for treatment of resistant cases of depression, PTSD , ADHD and Pain Management.

I fell in love with Shrewsbury and whilst I worked in different areas of UK, Shrewsbury, which is the birth place of Charles Darwin, remained my home and now the base of my own private practice.

It was my dream and passion to bring a range of holistic treatment options to help people in times of need and to get them back to living a fulfilling life and achieve their potential. Here at MHWS it has been immensely rewarding doing just that.

Having travelled more than 50 countries, I have tried to learn from different health care systems and endeavoured to apply the best approaches in my own clinical practice. The team in my clinic firmly believes in evidenced based treatment approaches but also applying them individually to each client's need.

Having been extremely lucky to work and learn from amazing role models during my own professional development, I find leadership roles very rewarding . It gives me chance to not only pass on my own ideas and experience but also learn from the young and talented professionals. I am a firm believer in science and lifelong evidenced based learning.

"My passion is to work with people in developing an understanding of their issues and to help them achieve a better and clearer strategy to empower them to deal with their issues and to lead a more balanced life."

I believe that in therapy, the most vital component is the therapeutic relationship. Most of us could have difficulties with attachment issues, environmental issues, rejection sensitivity, social expectations, trust or could have genetic predisposition to develop mental health issues. My passion is to work with people in developing an understanding of their difficulties and to help them achieve a better and clearer strategy to empower them to manage themselves resulting in a more balanced life.

I have always been very fascinated with human behaviours and attitudes in different environments and interpersonal interactions. This interest led me to take psychology as a career path. Over the years, I have acquired expertise in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing), CBT (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy), Acceptance and Compassion focussed approaches in helping my clients. I also acquired accreditation with Tavistock Centre in Couple and Relationship Therapies.

Being involved in treatments of neurodiverse conditions, I have developed special interest in helping people with ADHD , autism and mood disorders including Bipolar Disorders.

I have also lectured in universities, and other settings, on a range of mental health topics.

Treating the whole person, both physically and mentally, is essential to promoting recovery. My person-centred working ethos drives my passion to provide the best holistic care possible.

My career has been devoted to supporting people at their time of need. In 2006 I trained as a Military Medic with the British Army, serving tours of Iraq and Afghanistan, I treated people in a variety of settings with varying needs. On leaving the British Army, I joined West Midlands Ambulance Service in 2015 and have been working as a HCPC registered Paramedic since 2017.

I am passionate about providing holistic care to people with a range of needs, which drew me to Mental Health and Well-being – It is great to be working with a fantastic team of people with a similar working ethos. My role here is to manage the cardiology services we offer, conducting assessments as a clinician and referring for further investigations when required.

Fiona Muller

I have a real passion for supporting young people and families through difficult times with a holistic approach. This passion has only grown throughout my studies and own personal experiences.

I joined the MHWS Team in September 2021. I have completed my MSc in Family and Child Psychology at Chester University and BSc in Clinical and Health Psychology at Bangor University. I really relate to the company's ethos in providing the best possible mental health support to help individuals well-being within a team of compassionate professionals.

Since joining the team I have also gained experience in supporting adults throughout their ADHD and ASD assessments. I have a special interest in eating behaviours and how this is connected to neurodiversity. I believe a warm, empathetic, and family-centred approach is essential to giving the best support and building therapeutic relationships. I have found seeing people's lives change for the better after an assessment and treatment such a rewarding experience.

My role involves supporting both the admin and clinical teams in observing clinics, scoring diagnostic tools, writing treatment notes, and writing detailed reports. I am being trained by the clinical team to be independent in the clinical side of history taking and diagnosis, all overseen by Dr Mohamad. I am excited to continue to learn and grow, whilst developing my future career within the company.

Clare Lloyd
Operational Manager and PA to the Directors
Clare Lloyd

I started work for MHWS in 2017 as Dr Mohamad's secretary. I previously worked as a Ward Clerk in a community Hospital in Powys and then met Dr Mohamad back in 2013 when we were involved in the start of the North Powys Crisis Home Treatment Team. When he decided to move into private practice, I was fortunate to be offered a role.

As MHWS has grown my role has developed. As Operational Manager I oversee the day to day running of the NHS Commissioned Adult ADHD Service and have also developed a special interest in data security and information governance.

As PA to the Directors this continues to give me the contact with clients which I find particularly rewarding. I believe that the client is the most important person and hope through my experience to support them during the referral and consultation process. I aim to make this an efficient and friendly start through their treatment journey with MHWS . I am often told that the hardest part is making the initial contact, but what have you got to lose, we are only a phone call or email away and making the decision to make that first small step can lead to a positive outcome for you.

Assistant Clinic Coordinator
Angelique Trollip

I have a strong determination to help people understand themselves so that they can live the way that they want, and deserve to.

I first moved to the UK in 2019 from South Africa, and before you ask, no I don't miss the weather and I quite like the rain! Since then, I have worked as a Barista, and Operations and Payroll Consultant at a recruitment agency, and now as a Assistant Clinic Coordinator at this amazing practice. I've kept myself busy in the time that I have been waiting to go to University and study Psychology.

I always knew that I wanted to make a difference in people's lives. But it wasn't until I read the quote ‘be who you needed when you were younger' that I realised how to make that difference. My goal is to become a clinical psychologist, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to work in a mental health environment, especially one as supportive and dynamic as MHWS .
