About this blog

French Psychologist in Dubai - Vanessa Bokanowski


Specialized In Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.

I graduated as a clinical psychologist by Université Libre de Bruxelles in 2002. I have a Post Graduate Diploma in Clinical Psychotherapies (Université Libre de Bruxelles, 2004) and a four years post-graduate diploma (DES) in Psychoanalytical Psychotherapy (from Office Medico-Pédagogique, Switzerland). I’m licensed by the Dubai Health Authority. My services are provided in French and English.

I continuously improved my knowledge by doing additional training in Family/Couple Therapies in Switzerland and Paris with famous Psychiatrists and Family Therapists such as Mony Elkaïm and Alberto Eiger. I have also done a Master of Business Administration in Switzerland which has given me a sense of the business world and issues related to it.

Prior to 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 have worked for four years in a psychiatric public practice with adolescents and children, as well as doing psychoanalytic psychotherapy in private practice with adults.

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

I’m dedicated to continuous learning and an experienced and renowned French Psychologist in Dubai and psychoanalyst, Dr. René Roussillon, is supervising my practice.

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”.
