What I’m excited to bring to Fitcy Health members:
In truth, I like to take an integrative approach with counseling. Since we all are individuals and one size cannot fit all when it comes to mental health support. Although I am trained in CBT which is evidence-based and structured, However, sometimes all you need is a safe, confidential, accepting space where you can share your thoughts. Above all, I prefer implementing humanistic and psychodynamic elements as well which suits a person’s individual needs. Hence, I am an online therapist in Dubai through Fitcy Health.
