Dr. Ivone de Guadalupe Reis

Allied – Clinical Psychologist In Dubai

I am a Portuguese citizen who completed a Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree at ISPA Instituto Universitário (Lisbon, Portugal) and an ongoing PhD at University of Seville. My postgraduate trainings and qualifications include but are not limited to Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies, Mindfulness Therapy and EMDR (Children and Adults). I also completed specialised trainings in Europe, Brazil, and USA, including Gottman Method Couples Therapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Life Coaching, Coaching with NLP, Timeline Therapy, and Passive, Conversational &; Active Hypnosis for children and adults.


In the research field I have published several articles and a chapter in a book all peer reviewed in the scope of the ongoing PhD at University of Seville (Spain) in collaboration with the University of Barcelona and ISPA- Instituto Universitário (Portugal).


I currently work as an Allied Clinical Psychologist in Dubai at The Psychiatry and Therapy Centre and have a specialty in Trauma. When I first came to Dubai in early 2020, I worked as a clinical psychologist in a high-profile centre for mental health. After 1 year I moved to another specialised centre in Dubai and worked in the capacity of Clinical Psychologist and Clinical Director, I also have experience in a leading “cutting-edge” UAE hospital. For more than 10 years I worked extensively as a Consultant Clinical and Health Specialist Psychologist and Clinical Director in the Portuguese Private Health System.

In all these years, I had the chance to become experienced and a highly proficient professional. My personal qualities include kindness, understanding, empathy and dedication, that blended with the experience, extensive knowledge and skills allows me to deliver an inclusive and eclectic approach tailored to the individual’s or group’s needs, and implement very positive improvements in their mental health, well-being and function.
