About Farah Lodi

To get to know me better please read the following description of my professional background and counseling approach. 

I am Farah Lodi, the owner and CEO of Moving Forward, a consulting service in Dubai. I have lived here for 11 years, and before that lived in the US. I have a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Seton Hall University in New Jersey, and am certified in Canada as a Cognitive Behavior Therapist (CBT). I am a Professional Certified Counselor with the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association and am a regularly featured writer for “Counseling Connect”, their online publication.

Some of my post-graduate training includes certifications in Strength-Based CBT, CBT for OCD, Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples, Integrative Treatment Approaches for Depression, Self-Regulation in Children with Autism and Building Resiliency.

Also, I currently hold a position as Adjunct Instructor of Psychology at Zayed University in Dubai and am frequently invited to deliver workshops on psychology-related topics both in Dubai and internationally. I am affiliated with North Central University in the US, as an Internship Supervisor for students enrolled in the Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy Degree.

In addition, I have created an online support group where professional psychological advice is offered as a free community service at

I’ve lived in 3 different continents, and through life-experience have developed multi-cultural sensitivity which enables me to understand my clients’ unique needs and perspectives. In counseling individuals my therapeutic approach focuses on identifying dysfunctional thinking patterns and replacing these with healthy adaptive thinking. We also focus on effective solution-focused problem-solving. Together with cognitive restructuring, I help my clients develop new behaviors and attitudes which result in better coping strategies. In marriage counseling I help couples learn how to communicate effectively, listen empathically, clarify their needs and expectations and build emotional closeness. This results in a more meaningful, authentic and satisfying relationship.

Do you need help resolving a personal relationship issue or with solving a stuck problem?

We are here to help you take the first step towards Moving Forward.
