Event description
Welcome to the InsideOut Wellbeing Series, a series of mental fitness events aimed at shining the light on different mental health topics.

About this event

If you have an addiction you are not alone. 1 in 3 people are addicted to something. In this Wellbeing Series session, we'll be looking at addictions and compulsive behaviours, covering the various types of addictions (including alcohol, drugs, sex & pornography), why they affect some people and not others, the affects addictions can have on our work, as well as the treatment options available.

Join one of our mental wellbeing experts, Saidat Khan, for a session on understanding addictions. There will be a Q&A at the end where you can ask Saidat any related questions you might have.


  • Topic: Understanding Addictions
  • Date/Time: Thursday 5th of August, 12.30pm - 1.30pm BST
  • Location: Zoom
  • What to expect: 30-45 minute interview with InsideOut's psychotherapist and life coach Saidat Khan, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
  • About Saidat: Saidat is a highly qualified Humanistic Integrative Psychotherapist, a Psychosexual Relationship Therapist and an Addictions Specialist who helps individuals, couples, families and groups gain the psychological awareness to improve health and wellbeing. Saidat has a wealth of experience working with people from all walks of life, cultural backgrounds, religion, gender, sex and disabilities during his time providing therapies, commissioning health services and developing primary care GP services within the NHS. His approach to psychotherapy is immensely influenced by his own eventful and often challenging life experiences; which crucially gives him deeper empathy and insight into people’ problems, past and present, with a greater understanding of why particular behaviours are adopted and used as coping mechanisms.

So what are you waiting for? Set aside some "you time" to build your skills and learn how to best support your well-being.
