About me and my therapy practice

Welcome to my page.

You may be looking for a therapist to:

- improve your relationships

- help you not to feel anxious or depressed anymore

- help managing your stress

- get relief from your suffering

- have a better understanding of yourself

These are some examples and all important reasons to be reaching out to a therapist. Humans are complex beings and therefore require a safe space, time, willingness and patience to bring an understanding to their complexity. Sometimes we need to stop and think why we do what we do, especially if this feels wrong or unhealthy to us.

Practice description

My work is psychoanalytically oriented. This mainly means that I believe our past has an impact on our present. It may often be difficult to recognise what is behind our difficulties. You may experience difficulty in making/keeping your relationships, or feeling lost, stuck, depressed, etc. Or something or someone you encounter may trigger an unexpected response in you that you may not know what it is at the time. Or you are feeling anxious and you do not know why. The therapeutic work can help you to understand why you have these difficulties and enable deeper changes.

I offer short and long term counselling and psychotherapy. I have over eight years of experience working with children, mental health and providing long term therapy for adults with various difficulties in a mental health charity.

Training and qualifications:

- BA in Psychology, Istanbul Bilgi University

- MA in Counselling Children and Young People, University of Nottingham

- Postgraduate Diploma in Psychotherapy for Practitioners Working in Therapeutic Environments, Middlesex University

- Psychoanalyst in Training, CFAR (Centre for Freudian Analysis and Research)

Currently evening appointments on weekdays after 5pm and Friday day appointments available.

I speak English and Turkish.
