In 2016, clinical psychologists Sabine Skaf and Dr. Thoraiya Kanafani acquired the Human Relations Institute & Clinics, Dubai. They each have over 15 years of experience in multiple areas of psychology and have worked extensively in providing personal and organizational mental health services across the Middle East and North Africa, Europe, and North America. 

The Human Relations Institute & Clinics is a close-knit family of internationally licensed clinical psychologists, psychotherapists, psychology practitioners, family consultants, life coaches, and organizational consultants experienced in a variety of psychotherapeutic practices and non-clinical approaches. We provide personal and organizational mental health services to individuals and businesses in the Middle East and abroad, regardless of age, location, and nationality. We provide clinical and counseling psychology (including support groups and workshops), forensic psychology (including adoption support), organizational and business psychology, assessments and educational psychology services.

We also provide quarterly clinical psychology internships for students who have completed a bachelors degree program, as well as practicum supervision for students who are currently in or have completed a masters/Ph.D. degree program. 

Our team continues to grow and evolve according to the needs of the communities we serve, and we have recently expanded to provide life coaching, NLP services, additional personality inventories, and EAP orientations for personal and organizational needs all over the Middle East. 


The Human Relations Institute & Clinics is proud to be your safe place for over 25 years.
