I am Munavvar Seyidova, a compassionate and open-minded CDA licensed psychologist with a focus on promoting positive change in each client I work with. With an ethnically Azerbaijani background and residing in the UAE, I can empathize with the challenges people face in family life as a mother and happily married woman. During my 6 years of psychotherapeutic experience, I have worked with various cases, including family issues, sexual abuse, physical abuse, eating disorders, exam stress, depression, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, OCD, and co-dependent relationships. My therapeutic approach is integrative, utilizing effective tools from therapies like EMDR (FLASH), IMTT (PTRP, FSAP), IFS, and HYPNOTHERAPY.
I am well-educated, holding a BSc Honours in Psychology with Counselling Skills from Middlesex University and an MSc Honours in Business Psychology from Heriot-Watt University. Additionally, I am a Certified Hypnotherapist by Asc. Prof. Dr. Nejat Altintash, a Certified EMDR + Flash Technique therapist by EMDR Europe and Philip Manfield, PhD, a Certified IFS therapist by LCSW IFS certified therapist Bruce Hersey, and a Certified IMTT (PTRP; FSAP) therapist by Robert Miller PhD.
My practice is multilingual, offering therapy sessions in English, Russian, Turkish, and Azerbaijani.

My dedication to ethical considerations ensures the well-being of my clients as we work together towards growth and healing.
