Somatoform disorders represent a complex interplay between mind and body, where psychological distress manifests as physical symptoms without a clear medical cause. These disorders are not mere illusions of the mind but real, often debilitating symptoms that individuals experience in their daily lives. As a clinical psychologist in Dubai deeply versed in the nuances of somatoform disorders, I am committed to helping those who face these challenges. If you or someone you know is navigating the perplexing landscape of somatoform disorders, I offer a haven of understanding, expertise, and empathy. Together, we can explore the underlying psychological factors, develop strategies for managing symptoms, and work towards holistic healing. By reaching out, you take a vital step towards reconnecting with your body’s true narrative and embarking on a journey towards comprehensive wellbeing.

Somatoform disorders mask emotional distress as physical symptoms, often resulting in a long, unsuccessful search for medical solutions. Recognizing and addressing these disorders requires a delicate balance of acknowledging the physical symptoms while exploring the psychological roots. My therapeutic approach is centered on this balance, offering psychodynamic therapy and stress reduction techniques. We will collaboratively work to understand the link between your emotional state and physical symptoms, empower you with coping mechanisms, and strive to improve your overall quality of life. Whether it’s managing chronic pain, gastrointestinal disturbances, or other bodily symptoms, our goal is to illuminate the path to wellness that respects both the physical and psychological aspects of your experience.

If you are seeking help and a compassionate ear, please don’t hesitate to contact me, Zita Chriszto, for professional support and guidance on your journey to wellbeing.
