Dr. Ghazaleh Bailey

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. As a Therapist and Life Coach, I facilitate an exploration into a more resourceful way of living by discovering new insights into how the choices you make could help you cope with the obstacles you encounter in your daily 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. In addition, I am interested in Buddhism and mindfulness.

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

I offer completely confidential individual psychotherapy, couples therapy and counseling, and life and career coaching to the local Berlin community as well as to clients around the world.
