Counseling in Dubai

Helping you live life fully.


What happens in counseling?

Sometimes you may find that you need some support to help you live life more fully. Or you may have a long history of struggling with certain issues. Whether you would like help with something mild and fleeting or more long-term support, we are here to help.

There are various approaches that are proven to help people with different challenges. Your counselor or psychologist is trained in a number of methods, which means we can ensure you receive an approach that is tailored to you.

This video gives you an idea of what happens in counseling sessions and the ways in which therapy can help. Psychotherapy is a broad term that includes counseling and psychological support.

How do I know if I need counseling?

The first signs people often notice is a sense that things aren’t quite right. People often battle through for a while, perhaps noticing: 

a change in sleep or appetite
wanting to withdraw from social contact
loss of pleasure in things you used to enjoy.

The sooner you are able to come for counseling or therapy, the better. It is easier and quicker to treat problems the earlier you catch them.

Sometimes, simply wanting to live life more fully is what leads many people to seek counseling. In other cases, people battle on for months or years, and people around them suggest that counseling might be helpful.

Whatever it is that helps you to think that counseling might be an option, don’t hesitate to make an appointment to try it for yourself. It might be the best thing you ever did.

Marriage Counseling in Dubai

There are many reasons why people come for marriage counseling. Sometimes there is a trigger, like significant stressors, trust issues or certain behaviour that is difficult to tolerate. Sometimes people have a communication style that makes it difficult to enter fully into a relationship. Our marriage counselors are experienced at helping people resolve their difficulties, and thereby improving the situation at home not only for the couple but for any children that might be affected by unhappy parents. Marriage counseling can also be helpful when a couple does decide to separate, supporting the couple to part in a healthy way.
