Karen Hayre

Allied – Social Counsellor In Dubai


Empowering Your Journey to Wellness

I am a licensed Psychotherapist and Counsellor from the UK with extensive experience in helping individuals to overcome life’s challenges and achieve their full potential. I am passionate about guiding my clients on their path to mental and emotional wellbeing.


About Me

With a deep commitment to the wellbeing of my clients, I provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, emotions and concerns. My approach to therapy is based on a foundation of trust and collaboration, as I believe that you are the expert on your own life, and my role is to support and guide you on your unique journey.


My Approach

As an experienced Integrative therapist, I utilise a range of evidence-based therapeutic techniques, such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy and Person-Centred Therapy. My aim is to tailor your treatment plan to meet your individual needs and to equip you in an individual way that is bespoke to your future life plans and paths. Together, we will work towards understanding the root causes of your challenges and developing effective strategies and coping mechanisms for positive change.


My Experience

I hold an MSc in Psychotherapy and have extensive experience in diverse settings, including the public, private and charity sectors in the UK, where I worked with adolescents, adults, and couples. Before relocating to Dubai, I played a pivotal role in developing and launching the world’s first women’s rehabilitation centre specialising in addiction. Additionally, I hold an Oxford Diploma in Couples Therapy and Counselling, where I incorporate elements from the EFT, Gottman and solution-focused therapy models. My deep understanding of various therapeutic approaches means that I adopt an integrative approach in my practice. By integrating a number of therapy models, I am equipped to tailor my interventions to address your specific challenges effectively.


Client-Centred Care

Your wellbeing is my priority. I will work with you to create a personalised treatment plan, focusing on your strengths and resilience. We will collaborate to help you gain insight, build confidence and develop the skills needed to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life.


Getting Started

Taking the first step towards seeking help is an enormously courageous decision. Whether you are facing a specific challenge or simply looking to enhance your overall wellbeing, I am here to support you. Please do not hesitate to reach out to schedule an initial consultation.

I look forward to working with you on your journey to a happier, healthier and more fulfilling life.
