Dr. Ghazaleh Bailey

Thank you for your interest in working with me.
I’m Ghazaleh Bailey and I’m a certified therapist, couple therapist, life and career coach with a PhD in Psychology. 
I myself have a multicultural background, which is why I have a deep understanding of the unique challenges faced by members of the expat community as well as those in multicultural relationships. I help people to overcome childhood trauma by transforming lingering painful emotions into more powerful, adaptive emotions so they can use the power of their emotions to live a content, fulfilling life. 
Over the last several years I have focused my work and research on the power of emotions and self-compassion on our well-being.
I love seeing people to start shining because they start being kind and caring towards their feelings, get to know their needs and find the strength to stand up for themselves and set boundaries. 

I incorporate a variety of humanistic psychological approaches into my work. Each therapy or coaching is tailor-made to suit each individual client’s needs and way of being. I offer therapy in English, German and Farsi to people of a great many nationalities and backgrounds. 

Furthermore, I offer collegial supervision in Emotion Focused Therapy and Trainings in Intercultural and Systemic Therapy.
