Aysegul C. Gokalp BSc.(Hons), Dip. HC, P.Grad.Dip. GP, Registered MBACP
My approach is person centred with holistic view of Humanistic Counselling and Gestalt Psychotherapy. My focus is to provide a safe environment for you to be able to confide without fear or judgement and protecting your confidentiality and privacy. I have experience of working with individuals and couples on exploring emotional challenges including:
- relationship issues
- fertility problems
- dysfunctional family difficulties
- personality disorders
Counselling and Psychotherapy provide a framework that gives you opportunity to explore about yourself in a professional and confidential relationship. I offer you time and space to reflect on how you are and how you would like to respond what life throws at you, focusing on your needs according to where you are on your personal journey.If you are interested in exploring, we may discuss what you would like to achieve and how I may support you
Training, qualifications & experience
I have performed a variety of roles as both a professional and a volunteer that have given me opportunities to gain experience of managing, developing and supporting people for over 15 years.

I have an UKCP Accredited Post Graduate Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy, an Accredited BACP Diploma in Gestalt Counselling and qualification in Humanistic Counselling.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
