Welcome to ClearMinds Psychotherapy Center
ClearMinds is a psychology counseling and assessment practice in Dubai dedicated to working with clients and families on a personal level; understanding them, feeling with them, and most importantly being a part of their growth and change. Here, a sense of accomplishment is felt because clients and families are seen progressively becoming happier & stronger. Our philosophy is that everyone, with the right support, has the potential to be happy and to live a fulfilling life.
The term psychologist is often used interchangeably with psychotherapist, counselor, and therapist to describe a mental health professional working with clients to improve the quality of their lives, including their relationships, personal issues, and mental health issues.
You may hear about people going to therapy or counselling in Dubai or elsewhere, but for many, it can be scary to visit a mental health professional for the first time. The good news is that it does not have to be. Let us answer all your questions about our counselling and therapy, and how our team of the best psychologists can help you feel better, happier, and stronger.
When working with a psychologist, a person is helped to uncover the source of their anxiety, stress, pain, resentment, frustration, etc. The psychologist helps the person determine the goals they wish to achieve through the course of counselling and helps them set in motion a plan to create and maintain positive change in their lives. As the therapeutic relationship between the person and the therapist grows, core issues will come into focus, helping the person resolve, rather than put a Band-Aid on their symptoms.
The overarching goal of psychotherapy is for the client to be able to cope with and resolve their struggles on their own, so they no longer need therapy. In order to reach this goal, both the client and therapist must work together to uncover the root of the issues and come up with realistic solutions that can be put into practice.
As a recognized center for providing assessment and therapy services, we extend our expertise to provide our clients compassionate support and treatment in a welcoming and nurturing environment.

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.
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.
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.
- 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.
