About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychological counselor and I completed my PhD degree in Guidance and Psychological Counselling at Middle East Technical University, Turkey. Besides my own private practice I also provide mental health services as a sessional counsellor at The MAYA Centre, which is a community-based charity in Islington providing free counselling service for women who have experienced mental health issues, trauma and gender-based violence, including domestic violence, physical abuse or childhood sexual abuse and harmful traditional practices. I also provided services at Imece Women's Center, set up in 1982, in London by offering culturally gender sensitive therapy and by supporting women who are affected by various forms of Violence Against Women and Girls (VAW&G) including Harmful Practices such as Forced Marriage, Honour Based Violence. I completed a three-year complementary education in Somatic Experiencing” which is a pyscho-biological approach for trauma resolution approved by SETI (Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute-USA) and EASE (European Association for Somatic Experiencing). I am authorised to use the title "Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP)" and to perform Somatic Experiencing trauma work according to Peter Levine Ph.D. I am also assisting in the teams of Somatic Experiencing in Scotland and United Kingdom. I am a Registered Member (MBACP) of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and the Turkish Psychological Counselling and Guidance Association (TPDR DER).
