Training & Experience
I am a qualified Psychotherapist. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy (British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists registered) from a well established training course at University of East London, and previously a degree in Psychology BSc (British Psychological Society) from Brunel University. I also completed relevant short-courses in Counselling Skills at Goldsmiths University, and other established bodies.
I have completed a range of additional training in third wave Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, mindfulness based practice, attachment in practice, and I have a wide range of experience in counselling & psychotherapy both working with children & young people, families and adults.
I have worked within the NHS over many years in different areas including, forensic mental health services, addiction problems and talking therapies, and currently working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, as well as practising privately.
My approach is in Integrative Psychotherapy, a more person-centered approach. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing services that span from therapy for depression and anxiety, addiction, grief counselling and beyond. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalised approach tailored to each of my clients’ individual needs to help attain the personal growth they are looking for.
I also specialise in working with children and young people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harming behaviours.
Typically, we will have an initial session in which to explore what has brought you to counselling, what it is you’re looking for from counselling. This session will last up to 50 minutes, where we can explore if we think we are suited to working with each other and then make a therapeutic agreement.
Length of Therapy
I offer both short-term and long-term psychotherapy. The duration of therapy depends on a client’s needs and concerns and this is discussed at the initial session.
Short term therapy typically lasts between 6 – 12 weeks, with a review closer to end of the therapeutic plan.
I’m a bilingual Psychotherapist, I provide therapy in both English & Turkish. I welcome everyone, from all backgrounds and ethnicities, genders and sexual orientations, classes, religions, and ages.
I aim to be sensitive to all issues, both individual and cultural. I have an awareness of cultural implications in the way certain issues are encountered, so I strive to provide a service that takes all matters into consideration.
