As one of the best clinical psychologists in Dubai, with years of experience in therapeutic interventions, I support children by identifying developmental delays and difficulties as well as providing support to parents to help manage behavioural difficulties.  With adolescents, my approach is to provide support and guidance during the transitional years and by establishing healthy coping strategies, dealing with relationships instability and improving parent-child relationships. When working with adults we recognise the multifaceted aspects of an individual’s life that could affect one’s mental health.  By addressing childhood experiences or traumas, self-worth issues or relationships, we identify the old belief pattern and replace them with new belief systems, while engaging in solution focused behaviours. I also work with couples, using the Gottman’s therapeutic method for couple’s therapy. The approach focuses in identifying the core issues between the couple, while highlighting individual aspects affecting the relationship and ultimately improving communication and fulfilling one’s dream of the relationship one hopes to be in.

Helping You Move Ahead to the Road of Healing

As a female Indian psychologist in Dubai, I believe the best way to bring a transformation in your life is to solve those traumatic situations, alter inappropriate behavioural patterns, and find the roots that are holding you back from regaining happiness.

Therapy and counselling will help you to:

  • Create the best version of yourself
  • Understand how the past events are affecting your present and future
  • Solve relationship issues
  • Express your current state of mental and emotional well-being
  • Solve stress and anxiety-related issues
  • Fix the emotional/behavioural issues with children
  • Improve your cognitive abilities

I’m very passionate about my work and dedicated to creating lasting changes in everyone’s lives. I have personally gone through the journey of healing which helps me to apply a unique therapeutic approach for each client and gain a reputation as one of the trusted psychologists in Dubai.
