MBBCH, MA - Psychologist & Family Counselor

Language: English, Arabic Experience: +10 years


I am always very passionate about my work and always give it my best, as I believe any one in the profession of helping people, should always have a genuine desire to support people and help them improve their lives.


I am a medical doctor MBBCH, with a psychiatry specialization, followed by an MA in Psychology.

Working as a psychiatrist and encountering mentally ill patients made me think of how I can have a role in reducing the struggles. So, as it is known that environment can have a significant role in stimulating mental illness specifically for those genetically predisposed, I decided to work with parents and Teachers on regulating the environments where children are nurtured into healthy well balanced human beings.

I am a member of MEPA (Middle East Psychological Association), and ACAMH member,  and, a lifetime member of the International Honour Society in psychology (PSI CHI).

I am very proud to have helped with the start-up of the Graduate School of Education of the American University in Cairo by training teachers at different international schools in Egypt. I am also a certified trainer and corporate Coach.

I use  Play Therapy methods and conducts parent-child play assessments to treat parent- child interaction problems. I also work with children showing behavioral problems mostly using play therapy methods and behavioral management techniques.

Being the founder and owner of CLC Educational Group, a group of early literacy-based preschools and the first in Egypt to have a child psychology-based curriculum, I conduct and design programs for; teachers workshops as well as parenting lectures. I also design school counseling systems including training and supervising the school counsellors.

Throughout my 10 years of working as a psychologist, I have worked with adults of different cultural origins and beliefs, I have also been able to diagnose and treat adults with psychological problems like anxiety, depression, communication lags, and self-esteem issues, or signs of psychiatric or psychotic episodes indicating referral to a psychiatrist or a neurologist.
