Early Years & Primary School Counsellor

“The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice.”- Peggy O’Mara

I am half Canadian and half Persian who was born and raised in Germany. I have 2 children, a 5 year-old daughter and a 3 year-old son and I am married to a German. I hold a BSc (hons) in Psychology and a MA in Social Science (Social work and education). I began my therapeutic career 15 years ago when I started my training in mental health in a child and adolescent psychiatry working with children and young people in NY, USA in 2007. In 2010, I moved to Dubai, UAE, where I began to work in international schools as a School Counsellor which I am extremely passionate about. I am a certified in multiple therapeutic interventions such as conscious parenting coaching and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). With these skills I would love to support SISD families to help your children grow into empathetic, self-aware and balanced individuals. My hobbies are snowboarding, field hockey, travelling the world, camping.
