Trauma . EMDR . Complicated Grief . Loss

Barbara Bahtiar, International Psychologist & Author

Welcome to Barbara Bahtiar, International Psychologist and Author

The loss of a beloved person affects us all deep inside our heart. It stays with us for a longer period of time and we often need someone to talk to, to help us understand the losses we are going through or we experienced earlier in our lives. Barbara Bahtiar is there for you to trust your inner feelings, to help you cope with trauma, grief or loss, to help you to stay grounded and focussed in life. In individual sessions you learn how to accept the losses, how to cope with them and how to survive in a pleasant way. The loss or grief can be of all sorts, from the death of a beloved one to leaving one's home country, studying abroad or living as an expat or third culture kid in a new country, under new circumstances.
