Benefits of Consulting with a Child Psychologist
Our team has one of the best child psychologists trained in play therapy. She helps children struggling with:
For Teens
Teenagers may experience several challenges in their lives. For example, they may have difficulties with their parents, difficulties with their friends, troubles at home, academic difficulties.

It is not always easy for them to put in words what is bothering them. It may be because they don't really understand how they feel or they don't even know why they feel the way they do. Because children and teens may not be aware, they can act out with behavioral problems or other symptoms.

In therapy, teenagers can find a safe place to talk, in confidence, about their worries, insecurities, and struggles. Even though many teenagers are initially resistant or hesitant to coming to therapy, after experiencing that the therapy room is a non-judgmental and private space for them to be themselves, they end up wanting to come frequently.
Struggles dealt with:
Anxiety and Persistent Worry | Attention Problems | Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) | Anger and Aggression | Abuse | Body Image and Self Esteem Problems | Behavioral Problems | Bullying | Depression, Sadness, or General Unhappiness | Grief, Loss, & Bereavement | Parent-Child Relationship Problems | Separation Anxiety | School Refusal | Self Harm | Suicidal Thoughts | Social Difficulties | Stress Related Problems | Trauma
For Parents
Knowing whether or not your child or teen needs therapy can be a tough question for many parents. This is a question that plagues many parents. To answer it, you can objectively assess your child's needs.

First- Identify an area of concern, such as:
Fears | Anxiety | Bedwetting | Self-esteem issues | School problems | Bullying | Extreme Perfectionism | Shyness | Aggressive behavior | Inattentiveness | Sadness | Nightmares | Sexualized behaviors

Second- Ask yourself the following questions:

- How often does the behavior of concern occur?
Several times a month | Once a week | Several times a week | Daily

- How long does this behavior last once it has started?
10 to 20 min | 20 to 60 min | More than an hour | On and off all day | Nonstop

- Do others the same age act this way?

- What will happen to my child if my child doesn't receive help?

Many times, children grow out of difficulties on their own, either over days, weeks, or maybe months. Other times, though, these difficulties can turn into larger problems and impact how others see the child and impact how the child feels about and sees himself/herself.

For Example:
A child may have difficulty controlling his anger and expressing his feelings when he is in a new setting, such as a new classroom or with a new teacher or new school. This behavior may improve after a week or so as the child adjusts to the new environment. However, the behavior may also develop into something bigger and may not improve on its own. The child may develop reputation for being a troublemaker. His behavior may affect his ability to make and keep friends. Ultimately, the initial problem may make him feel worthless and unlikable.
In parent training sessions, our child psychologist will work alone with parents to help them:
- Understand and manage their children’s behavior
- Learn strategies to support their children through life or family circumstances
- Learn ways implement discipline and structure in the home.
These sessions are based on positive parenting and attachment parenting frameworks.

“In a short period of time, my teenage son seems happier and more at ease. We tried many Dubai therapists before, but he never saw the point of seeing them. But with Nayla, things are different. When he walks through the door after seeing her, he seems lighter somehow, less burdened. The whole house can feel it. Our relationship has become smoother and more loving during a very turbulent time in his life.”
Mother of Teenage Client

“We came to see Dr Nayla after 8 months struggling with our son’s tics, anxiety, and nightmares. Dr Nayla helped us understand him and how to deal with his tantrums and fears. She is still working with us on building his internal sense of safety and confidence. She is teaching us many techniques that, to our surprise, are working. It turned out every single piece of advice she gave us brought us one step closer to relieving my son’s anxiety. After even a few weeks of seeing Dr. Nayla I can say that our family became peaceful again."

Mother of Young Client

“I can highly recommend Nayla as specialized psychologist for kids. She has been supporting my 11 years old child navigate through the divorce by supporting him understanding better his emotions. Nayla clearly demonstrated a strong knowledge and method with kids.”
