Total Experience (Years): 10+
I am a BACP Registered counsellor/psychotherapist working with adults, couples, and adult families in Turkish and English languages.
My clinical interests are centred around trauma, depression, anxiety, loss/mourning, immigration as well as intimacy, relationship injuries, and family of origin issues
My personal, clinical, and researcher background taught me the necessity of realizing our own wounded parts and reaching out to our clients from a place of compassion and understanding. We all have unique life experiences that bring us joy, happiness, or sadness, anger, and fear upon remembering them. In the therapeutic process, I witness each clients’ wounded parts and their courage to share them with me. Opening up one’s to another person and exploring all these wounded parts require a nurturing, compassionate, and of course safe environment. If you’d like to explore your inner wounds and improve your relationship with yourself and others, I would like to hear from you.
