Educational Psychologist, School Psychologist

About Me/Bio
I am a UK-trained, Dubai-born Educational, Child and Adolescent Psychologist with over 9 years of experience in Special Educational Needs and Inclusion. I am licensed to practice in the UK (HCPC registered Educational Psychologist) and within Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC).

At the moment, I specialise in providing in-depth psycho-educational assessments to clients between 0-25 years of age, which includes identification (screening and/or diagnosis) of neurodevelopmental differences such as ADHD, Autism, Specific Learning Difficulties (dyslexia, dyscalculia, etc.) or students with any other additional learning or behavioural needs. In addition, I am trained and qualified to administer the gold-standard ADOS-2 assessment for the identification of Autism Spectrum Disorders across the lifespan.
I am a conservative assessor, which means that I only use assessments depending on the profile of the child/young person and do not apply a standard battery of tests for every client. I also believe in the power of systemic/holistic working, which means that I appreciate opportunities to work closely with schools and families wherever possible.

I am passionate about community outreach and continue to work with governmental institutions, schools and private training providers in the UAE, Asia and Europe to provide inclusion support through consultation and training for parents and teachers.

Prior to qualifying as an Educational Psychologist, I worked as a SEND Educator and job coach, specialising in promoting the independence of teenagers with SEND using a vocational outlook.

Currently, in addition to my clinical practice, I work as a (part-time) academic lecturer at a UK-based university in Dubai, where I teach and supervise both undergraduate and postgraduate students within the domains of Education and Psychology. I have also presented my research and national and international conferences and believe in the integration of evidence-based interventions into my clinical practice.
