Hello! I’m Prathna.
I am a Child and Adolescent Clinical Psychologist with over 10 years of experience working with young people and families in different settings.
I have worked in South Africa, the UK and the UAE.
I’m registered as a psychologist with the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), the UK’s Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
After qualifying as a psychologist, I completed additional training in therapeutic play, as well EMDR for children and teenagers, amongst many other interesting and helpful approaches. I am a lifelong learner and believe in regularly updating my skills and knowledge so that I can offer your child the best and most effective types of therapy.
Some therapies that I offer include evidence-based talk therapies, as well as evidence-based creative and play therapies in helping children and teenagers. I love working with young people and seeing their amazing transformation during therapy.
I also actively collaborate with parents throughout the process of therapy.
I believe that we all have inner strength and resilience, which can be tapped into to help us ride the waves of life. I’m a strong believer of commitment to engagement with the therapy process, since no success happens overnight.
I look forward to meeting, connecting and collaborating with you and your child. See you soon in the therapy room!
