Waheed's Story

I'm Dr Waheed Arian, former child refugee turned NHS doctor and founder of Arian Wellbeing.

Arian Wellbeing was born from my struggles with anxiety and PTSD, which stemmed from the immense hardship of my past.

Speaking to a psychologist gave me the tools I needed to overcome my trauma.

Today I want to help others receive the same life-changing support. It worked for me, it can work for you too.

    Complete a short questionnaire in minutes and connect straight to a clinical psychologist or personal trainer by video or phone call.

  3. Receive your assessment.

    Receive your personalised mental/physical health assessment with detailed steps on how to improve your mental and physical wellbeing.

  4. Start your therapy.

    Our clinical psychologists match you to one of our registered, accredited and experienced therapists based on your personal needs and background.

For organisations

We work with charities, local authorities, health and social care institutions, and private organisations, to provide trauma-informed psychological and exercise therapies that rapidly improve group mental and physical wellbeing. If you'd like to partner with us, please contact us

Group sessions led by lived experience

Our organisation is led by people with lived experience of trauma. This experience, alongside a clinically proven mind-body approach led by some of the best psychologists in the UK, enables us to provide group therapy sessions that build a compassionate, trauma-informed understanding at all levels of an organisation. We offer lived experience seminars, group therapy sessions, group exercise sessions with personal trainers, and so much more.

Individual Interventions

We offer access to high quality assessments and 1-1 interventions led by one of our specialist clinical psychologists and therapists.

Case Study:

We worked with Cheshire West and Chester Council in summer 2023, offering trauma-informed and clinically-driven mind-body therapies to Afghan refugees living in temporary accommodation. Through lived experience seminars, group therapy sessions led by clinical psychologists, and targeted physical exercise support from personal trainers, we were able to improve the physical and mental wellbeing of X% of the group. All adults undertaking the group sessions opted for further 1-1 support with clinical psychologists and/or a personal trainer

We also worked with council staff, offering tailored 1-1 sessions that increased understanding of the psychological needs of the client group, and bolstered staff capacity to provide trauma-informed care to vulnerable populations without the risk of vicarious traumatisation.

NHS support:

Our work is supported by National Healthcare Inequalities Improvement Programme, NHS England, for its alignment with the NHS Core20PLUS5 approach, to reduce healthcare inequalities in mental and cardiovascular health for the 20% most deprived populations.
