Insights 2nd BirthdayGráinne Parish - September 19, 2019
Insights started with a small team of three psychologists in a tiny office in JLT, Dubai in 2017. Building a world-class, community based psychology service has always been our goal, and this month we moved one step closer to achieving that.
Summer 2019 has been a busy one for the Insights team:
We have designed and over-seen the development of our new purpose built clinic in Dome Tower, JLT. Much thought, love and care has gone into the design. The entire team contributed to the effort - resulting in a beautiful, confidential space where our clients will feel at home. We have separate spaces for adults, children and training. It's a great base for our team of psychologists, and many long term clients have already commented that they love the new space. Please feel free to contact Reception if you would like to come to visit our offices to view the space.
We have also been busy developing some world class training courses for Autumn 2019. We have listened to the community and hope that the new line up will meet the training needs of organisations, schools and individuals. Back by popular demand are two courses:-
- ASIST, a two-day suicide intervention skills training course.
- Griffiths' User Training for psychologists and pediatricians.
We are massively excited to also bring two world class speakers to the region in September and October - Michelle Winner Garcia (US) and Professor Barry Carpenter (OBE, CBE, PhD).
These courses are aimed at people interested in neuro-diversity - parents, individuals, teachers, therapists. All courses are KHDA approved, and DHA approved where appropriate.
More information is available in the courses section of our website www.insightspsychology.com/courses/.
As always, we are open to suggestion on ideas for training in the new year.
New Additions to the Team
And last but not least, we are delighted to announce the expansion of our wonderful team. In order to meet demand, we have expanded our child, adolescent and educational psychology team by hiring two new psychologists. Cynthia Downey, a US trained practitioner, and Kelly Pugin, a South African trained practitioner have both joined us from September. The lovely Jacqui Lawson, counselling psychologist, will also be available to see new clients - children, adolescents and adults from October 2019.
