His areas of expertise include all anxiety disorders, all affective, mood, and depressive disorders, all adjustment disorders, stress and trauma, grief counselling, assessment and screening for cognitive impairment and dementias, and supportive counselling.
Mohammad has special interest in working with elderly people who have been a great source of knowledge and wisdom. He has more than 35 years of experience in a variety of government and private mental health services in Australia and New Zealand, including experience working in psychogeriatric services.
Since a young age, Mohammad has been fascinated by the human mind and behaviours and chose clinical psychology to help people with the burdens of mental illness.
He graduated from the University of Baltimore, USA, in 1980 with a Masters of Science (M.Sc.) in Applied Clinical Psychology. After moving to New Zealand in 1987, he worked in Rotorua and Christchurch; this included working as a senior clinical psychologist for a service providing comprehensive mental health services to the elderly.
He moved to Australia in 1998 and has worked at Redland Hospital, in a number of different Queensland Health mental health services, GP clinics, and at Wesley Mission.
Mohammad is a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), a member of the College of Clinical Psychologists (CCLP), and is recognised as Clinical Psychology Provider by Medicare, Dept. of Veteran Affairs (DVA), Workcover QLD, and major private health organisations.
Realising that his work is helping people to overcome their problems, get relief from anxiety, stress, and negative emotions has been the greatest motivation to keep working in his profession.
Being a soccer tragic, Mohammad experiences major marital problems at time of the World Cup (men and women), as unfortunately his wife does not appreciate constant shouting at the TV and telling players how to play.
