I am a British born, UK trained Clinical Psychologist working in Dubai. People might see a psychologist for many reasons; examples include mental health problems, relationship difficulties, or issues managing their current circumstances. I work with individuals (children, teenagers and adults), families, and couples who may be experiencing these difficulties. I am also a specialist working with neurodiversity and neurodivergence differences (e.g., ASD, ADHD).
I also have an interest in supporting clients to explore their identity and delivering culturally appropriate adaptations to psychological therapy.
Psychological therapy is a collaborative journey between a therapist and client. I work alongside clients to tailor interventions that are in line with their personal values and goals. Therapy can be short or long term, based on a person’s preference.
I am trained to use therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Compassion Focused Therapy.
Psychological therapy is built on rapport and trust. I provide a judgement free and safe space for clients to explore their difficulties. I value working with people involved in a client’s life when appropriate. I have previously worked within family therapy clinics, and I am open to family and network participation in sessions. I am also experienced in providing consultations to other professionals and organizations.
I provide support for a range of presentations such as:
Stress and burnout
Emotion regulation difficulties
Psychosis and unusual experiences
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Relationship and interpersonal difficulties
Formal diagnostic assessment for Autism and ADHD
Autism and ADHD post-diagnosis support (for individuals, couples, families, care providers and other professionals)
