“The purpose of psychology is to give us a completely different idea of the things we know best.”
— Paul Valery
Psychological assessment and consultancy
Psychologists attempt to understand the role of mental functions in individual and social behavior, while also exploring the physiological and biological processes that underlie cognitive functions and behaviors.
Psychologists explore behavior and mental processes, including perception, cognition, attention, emotion (affect), intelligence, phenomenology, motivation (conation), brain functioning, and personality.
The Department of Psychology in the Dubai London Clinic & Specialty Hospital provides the full range of specialist educational psychology assessments and consultancy services. Psychological services provided include cognitive/intellectual, learning difficulties, academic performance, special educational needs, and vocational/career assessments; psychological coaching sessions; and training and consultancy to organisations including schools, colleges, universities and corporate clients.
Referrals for appointments are accepted from General Practitioners (Primary Care), from Psychiatrists, and also directly from parents of children and young people at schools, colleges and universities in Dubai; from Headteachers, Principals and Learning Support Departments; and from corporate organisations for adults experiencing problems at work, such as dyslexia or specific learning difficulties.
