Growing up in Syria, Dr. Bahjat had a real curiosity that he realised would be of great value in the field of psychiatry. With more than 25 years’ of experience, he is one the UAE’s most experienced specialist Psychiatrists. He received his medical degree from Kharkov State Medical Institute in Ukraine in 1981, after which he specialized in Psychiatry from the same university, and then went on to earn a Ph.D from the Moscow Research Institute of Psychiatry in 1989.

Amongst Dr. Bahjat’s several qualifications, he has earned the Certificate in “QEEG and Neurofeedback”. The pioneering Neurofeedback therapy is a non-invasive procedure, which involves the direct training of brain function, helping the brain learn to self-regulate and function more efficiently. Research has shown neurofeedback to be useful in the treatment of many psychiatric disorders, including Anxiety, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, Substance abuse, Depression, Autism spectrum disorder and learning disabilities.

Having helped thousands of patients throughout his distinguished career, Dr Bahjat is committed to always be there for somebody who needs his help. Naturally patient and optimistic, Dr Bahjat’s favourite treatment is psychotherapy as he believes it can change people’s lives.
