About me and my therapy practice

I am a licenced psychodynamic psychotherapist from Turkey and registered member of BACP. I offer psychotherapy in Turkish and English.

I'm interested in therapeutic interventions that range from deep psychological interventions based on the client's history and experiences to a focus on the therapist-client relationship, as well as their cultural context and systems. In the therapeutic setting, I'm also passionate about using symbolic representations and meanings to help clients with self-awareness and introspection.

My aim is to create a supportive, nonjudgmental, and confidential environment for my clients to express themselves.

Practice description

Psychotherapy is a collaborative process in which the individual observes their thoughts and feelings, understands them, and broaden their perspective on how our past plays a key part in how we interact and negotiate the world in the present. Each symptom is a invitation of a cure. Being “seen” constitutes the very basis of healing. Therefore, I invite my clients to associate as freely as possible in our sessions. My therapeutic approach is mainly relational with a psychoanalytic theoretical base. I am particularly concerned with migration, life-transition, attachment and identity issues. I am here to help you to gain an understanding of deeper patterns and processes in your life.

My first session

Working on trust and exploring the reasons that brought you to psychotherapy are what to expect in the first few sessions.

The initial session helps both of us to determine whether I am the proper therapist for you. If you believe I am, we may set up a day and time for the sessions, which will last 45 minutes.

I also offer an online initial consultation which last 45-minute and is £60.
