Psychotherapy is a process that should be shaped according to the needs of the person and the effectiveness of it is based on a strong relationship of trust between the therapist and the client. Therefore, as a therapist, I use an integrative approach that includes psychodynamic/humanistic and behavioral. In the first session we will make a general assessment, where I will ask you questions about your past, present and future expectations. Vice verca, you can ask any questions you have about the path of this, my working approach, and anything else that is on your mind to start our journey together. Our sessions will last 50 minutes and we will meet on a weekly basis. I am providing in-depth long-term psychotherapy or short-term work depending on your needs.

As a registered member of the British Psychological Society, I worked at the Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust Ferryview Health Centre, French Hospital La Paix and Arkedia Counselling & Psychotherapy Centre Turkey. Now, I am seeing my clients both in person and online. I hold a Master’s degree in Clinical and Community Psychology and Bachelor's degree in Psychology. Additionally, I completed several programmes from the British Psychological Association, UC Berkeley and the Mindfulness Institute, among others.
