Are you experiencing feelings of anxiety, depression, isolation or low self-esteem? Do you feel overwhelmed, like your life is lacking direction or you feel trapped? Sharing your experiences and feelings with someone safe who will empathise with you rather than judge you is one of the ways to start shifting these very feelings that feel so hard to share.
As a trauma informed therapist, I strive to provide a safe and non-judgemental space where you can share thoughts & feelings that make you feel not good enough. Working with Shame, Guilt and Anxiety we can gently explore and safely re-process some of your most challenging experiences and what they have meant for you in your life. Shame can often present as similar to feeling depressed and it can be so hard to get out of, especially alone. It thrives on isolation, silence and judgement. The antidote to shame is empathy. If we reach out and share our experiences with someone who provides understanding and empathy, shame dissipates.

I've been conducting therapies with adults and adolescents both Turkish and English. I mostly use CBT and Mindfulness to help my clients. I work on anxiety, depression, anger management, social anxiety, health anxiety, relationship problems as well as other mental health problems. When necessary, I use Solution Focused Therapy techniques which help patients to see their strong sides to achieve the desired goals and some Art Therapy techniques so that my clients can open up easier and see the things they are not aware of.
