Amanin of Betazed was a noted Betazoid therapist. He argued that the most effective way to retrieve an unconscious memory was by a combination of sensory isolation and focused breathing techniques.

In 2374, The Doctor integrated the finer points of Amanin's techniques with Jungian therapeutic techniques to create his own approach to reconstructing the memory of Seven of Nine. (VOY: "Retrospect")

This character was only mentioned in dialogue.
The name of this character is possibly a reference to a species of the same name from Star Wars. Bryan Fuller, who was known to take other Star Trek: Voyager names from Star Wars, stated the name "Amanin", explaining its origin, was "just sort of like a private dirty joke." The name was, more specifically, created from the phrase "a man in". (Information from Larry Nemecek)
