I am a Dubai-born Educational, Child & Adolescent Psychologist, trained and registered in the United Kingdom and licensed within Dubai Healthcare City. I completed my professional doctorate at the UCL Institute of Education in London, UK and have been working within the domains of Psychology and Special Education in London and Dubai for over six years. In addition, I am a visiting lecturer at a Dubai-based international university and also present at various international and national psychology and education conferences.
At The Psychology Center, I work with children and young people aged 0-25 and their families in providing psycho-educational assessment services, which includes standardized testing in an office setting.
I am a bilingual psychologist offering services in both English and Hindi/Urdu.
My approach to psycho-educational testing involves an initial information-gathering session wherein any history and records/reports are discussed, usually followed by cognitive assessment, testing for academic aptitude and other supplemental scales related to wellbeing, motivation or others, as applicable to the nature of the case. I engage in triangulating sources of testing before forming personalized recommendations for the child/young person, and conclude the assessment with a detailed feedback session and report. I also use a person-centred approach to gain the views of the child/young person during the assessment.
