Furthermore, she worked for several years in the UAE whereby she dealt with adolescents and university students who suffered from extreme stress, religious/cultural identity-confusion and sexuality issues.

What you can expect from your first session:
Having worked as a Counsellor in two top international universities in Dubai, with multinational experience and an in-depth understanding of the many difficulties that individuals face today, I am able to detect and treat most psychological, emotional and behavioural ailments/disorders. Being a British individual who has spent a lot of time in Egypt has also given me the ability to adapt and adjust my perception accordingly before offering a diagnosis of any kind. I feel that joining Fitcy Health would be the perfect opportunity for me to do so, as I feel that I can offer clients a stable and confidential setting where they feel safe and secure to express themselves freely.
