Heyam Haddad is a Clinical Psychologist and Team Leader at STARTTS. For the majority of her career Heyam has been interested in and working with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, in the emergency services, as well as refugee related trauma. Heyam has significant experience in Psychological First Aid as well as dealing with highly complex and cumulative refugee related trauma. Her approaches include cognitive behavioural therapies, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, and other evidence based therapies, including imaginal and in vivo exposure for traumatic events. In her work at STARTTS, Heyam has treated multiple clients with war related trauma that has had a cumulative effect, and is also complicated by other factors related to being of a "refugee like" status including resettlement difficulties, separation and traumatic loss, and ongoing difficulties in the home country. Heyam provides clinical supervision for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress for both Psychologists and Psychology students. During her initial training she was supervised and trained by Dr Leanne Humphreys, which included training in imaginal exposure therapy techniques.
