‘The Pink Couch’ has several branches of specialist expertise.
‘The Pink Wig’ one branch of ‘The Pink Couch’ addresses any issue involving psychology and the law. It is most relevant to those who have suffered sexual harassment and abuse. It provides expert witness work assessing the impact of victimisation and trauma, support for a victim awaiting a criminal trial following sexual harassment and abuse, and also psychological interventions, for those suffering from any traumas related to harassment or abuse.
Dr Saddik has observed that sexual harassment is common place and the influence of sexual harassment is far reaching and detrimental, particularly for young women. Dr Saddik has worked with many cases of sexual harassment in the youth. Sexual harassment often results in self-harm and suicidal tendencies requiring immediate psychological attention.
