About Us

Life can often overwhelm us with innumerable stresses and challenges that we may be unable to cope with. At the Soor Center, we help clients overcome these challenges and make healthy lifestyle changes permanent.

Located in Kuwait City, the Soor Center was founded by Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa and the late Dr. Jaafar Behbehani in 2009, to provide professional and ethical psychological services, and remove the stigma surrounding psychological treatment in Kuwait.

Our team of licensed, qualified and experienced professionals work with clients of all ages, and offer confidential therapy, counseling and assessments for a wide range of mental health issues. These issues include depression, stress, anxiety, eating disorders, marital issues, phobias, obsessive-compulsive behavior, addiction, learning disabilities, attention deficit disorders, and educational problems. Our professionals employ a variety of evidence-based therapies, including cognitive-behavioral, short-term solution focused, reality/choice, crisis intervention, hypnotherapy, play therapy, career counseling, and more.

Our staff of multilingual male and female psychologists works with clients of all ages, Kuwaitis and expats alike. All therapists at The Soor Center are individually licensed to practice or directly supervised by a licensed clinician.

We offer an extensive list of assessments covering psychological, educational, and emotional issues, as well as support groups for anger management, anxiety, parenting, eating disorders, depression, and cognitive behavioral therapy. We also offer specialized programs for children with developmental delays, autism, Down’s syndrome, and AD/HD.

Alongside these psychological services, the Soor Center offers training courses for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy led by US licensed psychologist Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa.
