Patient discussing treatment received by Priory counsellor Ghania Kabbara:

“It was a therapist called Ghania from the Priory in Dubai and I did say to her, you have succeeded where 20 years of therapy has failed, and she said to me, be cautious about thinking it’s all about me because there is a lot of this about you being ready, but I would highly rate her, she is amazing. And also, the Psychiatrist I had from the Priory has been brilliant as well, so it was the right thing at the right time.”
