About me

I am Parwar, a CDA licensed psychologist based in Dubai. My academic journey spans across continents, with a B.A. in Psychology from Monash University, Australia, and a Master’s in Psychosocial Intervention from the University of Barcelona, Spain. Born in Erbil, Iraq, and raised in Denmark, I have called the UAE my home for the past 21 years. Embracing a global perspective, I deeply value the richness of cultural diversity and heritage, fostering a profound interest in identity and the sense of belonging.

My therapeutic approach

With a client-centric attitude, my therapeutic approach centers on self-awareness and mindfulness. By cultivating self-understanding, individuals gain clarity amidst life's complexities. Drawing from Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I integrate elements of positive psychology and Jungian psychoanalysis. Additional modalities, such as ACT, Humanistic Therapy, and Narrative Exposure Therapy (NET), complement tailored treatment plans. Sessions are dedicated to your objectives and aspirations, fostering personal growth and empowerment.

My communication approach

I advocate for transparent communication founded on mutual respect and tolerance. Our therapeutic space is cultivated as a sanctuary for open dialogue, free from judgment or constraint. Here, you're encouraged to express yourself authentically, assured of a compassionate and understanding environment conducive to healing and growth.
