I have a knack for social experiments. And so when I announced to a group of my male friends from the UAE and broader Arab region that I was seeking a therapist for my mental health, I was conducting one. The response? An awkward silence that filled the room. There it is: another Movember is almost behind us, a month that has gone far beyond growing a mustache for prostate cancer to raise awareness for men’s whole health....

When Dubai-based Canadian Nancy Zabaneh moved from corporate banking to the wellness world, it was a deep dive. She’s a Kundalini yoga instructor and a compassionate inquiry therapist, practicing a psychotherapeutic approach founded by the Canadian physician, author, speaker and addiction specialist Dr Gabor Maté. People usually think of drugs or alcohol when they think of addiction. But as Nancy explains, whatever we use to escape from pain is an addiction. “When we use it repeatedly, to...

Dr Shoji Shiba has helped some of the world’s biggest companies and governments — Toyota, India — turn their way of doing business around and come back stronger than ever. So how did the business theorist and Professor Emeritus of Japan’s University of Tsukuba create his groundbreaking management theories? The same way he realized he could, and should, open his own mind: by looking at art.  Several pivotal works prompted this inner reckoning. One came...

Social media is everywhere, as Facebook company changes its name to Meta and a second company whistleblower comes forward just weeks after former employee Frances Haugen. She claimed that the company prioritizes profit over public safety and tried to cover up internal research showing that Instagram was damaging the mental health of teenage girls. This is in addition to the first big social media outage, which saw much of the world without access to their...

This article is published as part of a series marking Movember, a month highlighting men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. It was 2,500 years ago in Ancient Greece that Hippocrates, the father of medicine, recognized that a person’s wellbeing is the totality of their mental and physical health – and that prevention of ill health is key.  “The greatest medicine of all is teaching people not to need it,” he...

When I started discovering that my clients suffering from depression, anxiety, memory loss and lowered attention span, I realized it was an outcome of a grander problem and began looking for causes. I found a strong relationship to content exposure on a daily basis, and that led me to develop a theory of cognitive obesity. Cognitive obesity is a product of overconsumption, or consumption that is not optimal for our requirements. It also involves a...

This article is published as a series marking Movember, a month highlighting men’s mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer. It was 1975 when Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees wrote these lyrics to Fanny (Be Tender With My Love): “You know how easy it is to hurt me.” But even decades later, many men cannot talk about what hurts, scares and worries them; about when they feel vulnerable...

I first explored Family Constellation therapy in Dubai almost three years ago now, while I was working with my partner. It really helped us to understand the present through our past, and how family relationships, behaviors and experiences can make their way into our new relationships – without us ever knowing it.  We learned that humans carry around seven generations of experiences and traumas in our body on a cellular level and with those layers...
