Clinical Psychologist


Dr. Robert Chandler

Stress, adversity and difficult life events are all part of being human. Psychological intervention is about allowing individuals, teams and communities to live productive, fulfilled and meaningful lives, without being held down by distress, suffering, or by what has happened to them.

I have 15 years’ experience working clinically. Following the completion of my doctoral training at the University of Bath (UK), I worked in both clinical and leadership roles a number of NHS and private sector settings before relocating to the UAE. Throughout my career, I have worked extensively with adults across the full spectrum of common mental health difficulties and neurodevelopmental disorders. 

On an individual basis, I work with adults from the corporate world, including high performing individuals and executives, treating clinical issues (such as anxiety and depression), and also non-clinical issues which impact wellbeing and work performance (including chronic stress, burnout, procrastination, and ‘Imposter Syndrome’). A pre- requisite to working with ‘the employee’, is working with the person as a whole; our personal lives, ways of seeing the world, and historical wounds contribute in a significant way to current functioning and associated difficulties.

At an organizational level, I provide consultation and strategic counsel to multinational organizations, companies, and firms, to promote and install a culture of openness to mental health and workplace wellbeing.

Evidence-based psychological science underpins all of my work; with individual clients, and also with teams and organizations.
