Ailien Sy

Clinical Psychologist, Psychotherapist

About Me/Bio
My name is Ailien and I work as a Psychologist at a mental health center in Dubai. It is my greatest passion to bring healing to people who’ve been through and going through difficult, stressful, and even traumatic life experiences. I implement a strictly confidential space for my clients that fosters support, is non-judgmental and acts as a safe haven where they can be free to share their personal challenges, learn coping skills, and build themselves into the person they want to become. I am also not a stranger to life’s struggles, having experienced personally some struggles and as well as having witnessed close family members, friends and strangers go through countless problems. This has become my strength throughout my practice as I can relate and empathize with clients going through the harsh realities of life such psychological problems within the families, financial difficulties, marital disputes and other relationship problems, different types of abuse, stress in child care, lack of support system, grief and betrayals and many others. I have experienced treating clients from different ages, background, sexual orientation and psychological and psychiatric conditions. I strongly advocate for versatility in psychotherapy treatments because I acknowledge that there is no single approach that would work for every individual. To continue being an effective psychologist, I familiarized myself with different types of psychotherapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Therapy, and other effective brief therapies. I have sufficient mastery in using different types of psychological assessments and testing as well as great written and oral communication skills in providing reports. I have a keen interest in Research as I aim to continuously discover and develop more effective therapies that would benefit people. Feel free to call or email me for any further inquiries about me and my services.

Sliding scale or pro-bono
I do offer pro bono services and do volunteer work as well. I give special discounts to the Filipino Community as I want to assist in the affordability of therapy. I am hopeful that people who need psychological interventions would not get dissuaded by the price. The clients could come and speak to me personally about their financial situation and together we can come up with the amount we are both comfortable with.

How I can help you
I always establish the target of the therapy from the first consultation. I find it important that I understand what the client wants and expects from the therapy sessions so I can properly address their specific concerns, which would save them time and money. I can also clarify the limitations of the sessions in case their expectations are something I cannot deliver.
Why I am specialized in this field
It may sound clichè but Psychology has always been my passion. My financial situation may not have made things easier for me but I pursued my education with dedication to be able to practice this field. I got my B.Sc. in Psychology in the Philippines and graduated with academic achievements. I worked in a big international company in HR, where I practiced my background in psychology by providing pre-employment assessments, mediating employee grievances, etc. I continued my professional journey in UAE where I took my M.Sc. in Clinical Psychology and graduated as an honor student. Even after finishing my degree and getting my license, I continue to train and be a better psychologist. I familiarized myself with different types of psychotherapies such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance Therapy, and other effective brief therapies.
What I say to people who feel nervous or have concerns about therapy/assessment
Be genuine with your clients. They can always tell when you are not sincere in your dealing with them. Mistakes and misunderstandings can and will happen but if the client knows and feels how sincere you are in helping them, the therapeutic alliance will stay intact, which then would encourage compliance in your client.
What measures I use in assessments
I use various types of Psychoeducational, Personality and Behavioral assessments.
