Vanessa Bokanowski – A French Psychologist In Dubai

Vanessa BokanowskiI graduated as a clinical psychologist for adults by Université Libre de Bruxelles in 2002. I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Psychotherapies for adults (Université Libre de Bruxelles, 2004) and four years post-graduate diploma in Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy for children and teenagers (from Office Medico-Pédagogique, Switzerland).  I’m licensed by Dubai Healthcare City.

My services are provided in French and English.

I continuously improved my knowledge by doing additional training in Couple Therapy in Switzerland and Paris with famous Psychiatrists and Family Therapists such as Mony Elkaïm and Alberto Eiguer.

Prior coming to Dubai, I have been providing psychoanalytical psychotherapy for more than 10 years in Belgium and Switzerland. I worked in psychiatric hospitals, treating patients with severe mental health problems and in crisis situations. I also worked for four years in a children’s and adolescent’s psychiatric department as well as providing psychoanalytic psychotherapy in private practices for adults.

I’m specialized in general assessment for adults and children. I’m providing personality assessments through multiple internationally-recognized tests (Rorschach, TAT),  as well as complete intelligence and cognitive assessment tests for children ( WIPSSI, WISC-V, ADHD test).

My main approach is psychoanalytical psychotherapy. I consider this approach very effective for people who are stuck in a repetitive pattern that threatens their well-being as well as their relationships and affective stability.

I have always been passionate about psychology and psychotherapy and I think that “helping people managing their own life is one of the best ways to make a small difference in this world, a world where everyone should be allowed to achieve their own fulfillment and the full enjoyment of their life surrounded by families and friends”.
