About me and my therapy practice
Hello, my name is Dilek.
I offer weekly therapy, combining clinical knowledge with a down to earth and straightforward approach and I am able to help with a wide array of issues that are difficult to tackle alone.
There are many reasons why people decide to come to therapy. You might be feeling overwhelmed and anxious or stuck and frustrated and you’d like to get clearer about what it is that is bothering you. Or, perhaps, you know what you want to explore and you’d like some help to address those thoughts, feelings and behaviors that you find challenging.
There is something both supportive and practical about taking some time each week to sift through the complexity of your life, and come to understand yourself more fully. What therapy provides is a space to be really heard, with the kind of attention that is deeper and more focused than that available in everyday conversations.
It is my belief that counselling is not about seeking perfection, but is, rather, a process towards acceptance of the whole self. To this end you are invited to explore the influence of your past, the realities of your present and the significance of those aspects of life that exist beyond the everyday and purely rational, such as the realm of the imagination and connection with the natural world.
I am a member of the BACP and practice within the Ethical Framework and I am committed to providing therapy in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment.
If you think you might be interested in working with me you are very welcome to contact me to arrange an initial meeting. I offer a free 30 minute zoom call so we can meet and see if we might work well together.
Please email, text or phone and leave a message and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
We work together to explore the transition you are experiencing: relationship issues, intimacy, relocating to a new country, adjusting to a new job or changing careers, dealing with grief or loss, coping with changes in life as we age, or dealing with traumas or worries that seem stuck. We will develop a plan for therapy, that feels safe, supportive and personalized to your hopes from the therapy.
My first session
Seeking support can feel very daunting so I take great care in the initial session to explain the counselling process, explore your expectations and needs, and ensure that you really feel I am the right person to help you. After this we can commit to a further 6-12 sessions if you have a specific issue you want to work on or longer open ended work if appropriate.
