I am a qualified Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and am in advanced training at Metanoia Institute/ Middlesex University to complete a master’s degree in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy. I am a Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy in English and Turkish. I work face to face and online via Zoom / Skype/FaceTime.
When we heal ourselves, we heal the next generation that follows. Pain is passed through the family line until someone is ready to feel it, heal it, and let go
I previously worked in retail management for 8 years; through this I provided training for people with disabilities and developed my own listening skills. This is where I discovered my interest in studies of human psychology and how we relate to one another.
Over the last 13 years, I have worked with children and their families within an early year setting, supporting both the child and parents’ emotional needs as well as providing psychoeducation to anxious parents. Through my own observations, which are backed by longitudinal studies carried out by numerous theorists, I have come to realise that when children grow up in a safe and secure environment they tend to thrive in their adult life, going through life hurdles more smoothly. In comparison, coming from a disadvantaged background or less supportive environment may shape how one thinks about the world and oneself; it can particularly impact how a person relates to others.
An area of particular interest to me is developmental trauma – relating to the development of a mother-baby bond or the disruption of this bond through devastating life events such as poverty, divorce, unemployment etc., which can have a profound impact, shaping a person’s life and where they are today.
