Dr. Ketam Hamdan is an impressive thought leader who works with many high profile executives and creates content for thousands of followers on Instagram, inspiring them to look inside and aim high. She is one of the few mental health experts who believe in the power of looking inside and learning to connect your mind, body, and soul for total health.
Dr. Hamdan is a multi-faceted personality. She is a highly accomplished Columbia and Harvard Graduate who unifies her knowledge of brain science, psychology, leadership, and spirituality to help people transform into higher versions of themselves. As a licensed therapist, Dr. Hamdan runs her private practice, where she works closely with many influential leaders on their inner journey. She is also the co-founder and Managing Director of Annisa’s Mental Health, a non-profit organization that works with Muslims in crisis. As a mental health influencer, she is working tirelessly to offer advice to her followers on how they can understand themselves better and live meaningful lives.
Dr. Hamdan’s unique ability to take multiple complex subjects such as business, religion, brain science, and psychology to integrate them into something impactful is praiseworthy and earned her the title of ‘synthesizer’ by a Harvard Professor. She has a knack for simply articulating complex subjects, breaking them down into easy-to-absorb material, and inspiring others to grow.
Dr. Hamdan’s bold, white girl demeanor and eastern wisdom are a rare combination. Her exceptional academic learnings and professional experiences, coupled with her spiritually driven soul, reflect her unique psychology approach. The best thing about Dr. Hamdan is that she is a true believer in practicing what you preach. She encourages and promotes only tried and tested solutions.
Dr. Hamdan is known as the Brain Health Doctor. She believes using the phrase “brain” health instead of “mental” health helps affirm these disorders are valid and are not just symptoms in one’s head. Using science and evidence-based strategies, Dr. Hamdan connects the three neural pathways of the head, heart, and body to help clients grow. She believes the answers to the chaos in your head lay in the body as unresolved wounds and in the heart, where spirituality and psychology intersect.
Dr. Hamdan’s consulting background and working with many men in the business world enable her to discuss mental health topics efficiently. She integrates many disciplines to elevate the self-growth process. She does not rely on traditional therapy modalities for healing because she finds them limiting on their own. Her personal battle with traditional therapy led her to search for more effective healing strategies. Today, she inspires people to look inside and think higher. As she says, “Thinking higher is twofold. I guide people to aim higher for one’s life and to think higher for mental health that it is a combination of head, heart, and body for optimal well-being.”
