Samira Alexander attended the first Rapid Transformational Therapy training ever offered by the method’s founder, Marisa Peer, in London back in 2015. The former Etihad employee, who now works as an advanced RTT and clinical therapist in Dubai, built her practice slowly by maintaining a full-time job. “After my training I returned to Dubai, continued doing my job and slowly started to see clients on the side to build up my business,” she said. “I...

I was talking to someone recently who was extolling the virtues of Internal Family Systems (IFS), a form of therapy based on the belief the mind has different sub personalities that explores how that came to be, how it impacts us, and what we can do about it. After spending time in traditional therapy, she learned about IFS on YouTube and found it very helpful. Earlier a friend had told me that after months of...

Attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is a neurodevelopmental disorder commonly associated with children — but adults get it too. A 2021 review of evidence-based studies on ADHD, published in the journal Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews, indicates that ADHD has a prevalence rate of 5.9 percent among the youth. The same article found ADHD occurs in 2.5 percent of adults. ADHD is a chronic and debilitating condition. Without appropriate management, it can have an adverse impact...

The idea of sinking down to the depths of the ocean with no access to oxygen tanks and a single rope for company probably sounds like the stuff of nightmares to many people. But for freedivers, this type of descent represents an intoxicating blend of physical endurance and mental tranquillity.  Also known by its scientific name ‘apnea’, freediving has been a pastime of humans for as long as there has been an interest in what...

To Nir Levi, it’s simple: many of the problems and systems we face today are the result of a relatively newfound ability to imagine — aka make up stories — about what is happening and the way things should be. This tendency to live in the past and future, and get caught up in our fears and insecurities, is often our undoing mentally — and physically, because the mind and body are one. “We have understand...

Parents are being urged to be aware of the warning signs in new school starters, aka “Covid babies”, who may experience bed-wetting, clinginess and crying spells as they navigate their emotions and new environment, according to Anthony Nhlapo, clinical psychologist at Priory Wellbeing Centre, Dubai. Many children and teens have or will experience social and separation anxiety as they head back to school, but for those children who have never been to school, one UAE psychologist...

Considering anger can be an umbrella emotion that can be an outward expression of underlying issues such as depression, anxiety, relationship problems, financial troubles, and work stress — I would say it is as significant of an issue as all the aforementioned mental health difficulties. I do not believe it presents here more than it does in other parts of the world. Here are some perspectives on anger management and effective strategies for dealing with...

Whenever depression is written about, the most common recommendation is to seek help via a mental health professional. But with therapy — even the online version — costing hundreds of dirhams just for one session, that is just not an option for most of the population.  Despite the fact that globally, more than 264 million people of all ages suffer from depression, according to the World Health Organisation, it has taken a pandemic for everyone...
