BEM Founder & CEO
My Remarkable Accomplishments
I am Mayameen Meftahi, a highly regarded specialist in trauma and intervention. My journey gained national attention when I made the brave decision to reveal my identity as a survivor of child sexual abuse on September 27, 2018. This choice was driven by my father’s early release from prison, serving only six years of his ten-year sentence.
Since then, I have transformed my personal experience into a remarkable story of triumph. I have worked hard to become a qualified psychotherapist, NLP coach, and independent professional advocate. Currently, I serve as a full-time senior intervention lead at Peak Education, an independent institution that focuses on Social, Emotional, and Mental Health (SEMH) education. At Peak Education, I took the initiative to establish an Intervention Trauma Recovery Service, which has become a lifeline for individuals seeking effective recovery and early intervention. I am proud to share that this program has received CPD accreditation and has been commissioned by Action for Children. It is truly humbling to see my team of facilitators now delivering this program globally.
I have had the privilege of speaking on the prestigious TEDx stage, where I shared my insights and experiences. Additionally, I have been honored to deliver lectures at The Queens Nursing Institute and contribute to campaigns advocating for the creation of the first-ever child refuge in the UK. My dedication to raising awareness about child sexual abuse also led me to participate in a Channel 5 documentary on this important subject.
In addition to my direct work with individuals and organizations, I am an accredited training provider. I offer Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training to professionals, enabling them to enhance their knowledge and skills in the field.
As part of my lasting impact, I am proud to share that my proposal for the establishment of the first-ever child refuge in the UK, specifically designed for child victims of sexual abuse, has been successfully passed by the Welsh Government.
In recognition of my unwavering commitment to supporting child victims, I was deeply honored to receive the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in 2020.
Thank you for visiting my page, and I look forward to making a positive difference in the lives of individuals and communities affected by trauma.
