ask louiseQuestionHi, I am from South Africa, and hoping to move to Dubai to teach.

I am currently teaching at a nursery school in South Africa and have experience in teaching swimming (Learn to Swim).  I have a passion for teaching and absolutely love teaching children of all ages. I have taught from ages 3-21 between swimming and nursery school.  I would like to move to Dubai and carry on teaching and doing what I love.  Could you please advise me of where and how I can apply for a swimming teaching position?

Many centres also offer assessments for ADHD, Learning Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders and other neurological or neurodevelopmental disorders.

Tell us a little about yourself:
I am a licensed psychologist practicing at the Cognitive Behavior Clinic, Dubai with one counselor.

I am also a psychodynamic therapist, psychodynamic therapy is for long standing problems. Unfortunately psychological problems don’t get better with time, in fact often they can get worse, we do not ’grow out’ of these. Read more

don't-transport-pets-in-summerPet owners are being advised to keep their animals in the country instead of putting them through the stress and potential hazards of air travel during the hot summer months.

“I would like to emphasise that there is no need to transport pets during the summer holidays,” said Margit Muller, a veterinarian and director of the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital, which also manages an animal shelter and pet-care centre.

“It is much better for the pet to stay in a pet hotel like the pet hotel of the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital Pet Care Centre where the animal is very well cared for. This considerably reduces the stress for the pet caused by transporting them.”

Abhi Chhetri, pet-relocation adviser for the American Veterinary Clinic (AVC) in Abu Dhabi, also recommends waiting until autumn to transport pets overseas. Read more
