Rubina Zahoor

I am dedicated to exploring and enhancing every person’s individuality and unique potential in a collaborative therapeutic relationship. I perceive and engage in individual treatment plans in a holistic manner whereby I adapt my approach to accommodate the needs of the individual who is seeking professional assistance. I am informed by existential, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural modes of therapies and I hold the belief that the correct choice of treatment modality for each individual is essential to ensure a good response to the intervention. I have a particular interest in supporting individuals who are struggling to manage difficult or overwhelming emotions or events in their lives. However, I love working with people from all walks of life, and I seek to create an atmosphere where individuals feel comfortable to express themselves and discover possibilities. My aim is to work towards improving their quality of life collaboratively and to develop a more compassionate relationship with themselves using solution focused strategies. As a seasoned professional with over 10 years of experience in Clinical and Counselling Psychology, I bring well-rounded experience and expertise in developing and nurturing future leaders. In my most recent position as School Psychologist/Wellbeing Co-ordinator at GEMS Metropole School, Dubai, I have maintained a consistent track record of achieving organizational goals and delivering excellence. As the member of the Safeguarding and Health & Safety Team, Certified Mental Health First Aider and CDA licensed Psychologist and Psychotherapist we are proud to have achieved outstanding practices within the GEMS Network.
