Due to Covid-19, I have not started face to face sessions yet. I offer online therapy (via Zoom, Skype, or Google Meet) and socially distanced walking therapy (in Holland Park, Kensington).
I work with adults, couples, and families both in English and Turkish within an eclectic approach of psychodynamic and systemic therapies; and when needed use CBT, mindfulness, and solution focused techniques.
Also, adult playfulness is one of my specialties; I'm using the benefits of play to address the issues you want to get help for. You can get in touch with me if you want to learn more about the benefits and mechanism of playfulness.
Along the way, some life events can cause us to lose connection with our authentic selves. The decrease in connection might reveal itself on the surface as confusion, relationship issues, heightened anxiety, phobias, loss of motivation, sadness, numbness, and change in appetite, sleep, and attention.
During our sessions we aim to strengthen the connection by exploring and working on your early childhood, past traumas, extended family, relationship patterns, unmet expectations, and unresolved issues in a safe, non-judgmental space.
And don't forget; psychotherapy is also for exploring yourself and enhancing your psychological well-being.
Get in touch to see if this would be a good fit for you.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been active in my field since 2010 and been providing psychotherapy since 2016. After studying psychology, I completed my graduate studies in Clinical Psychology Master’s Program and specialised in couples and family therapy with an eclectic approach of psychodynamic and systemic theories.
Additionally, I completed a 3-year specialisation program, convened on Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy.
I am a registered member of BACP.
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

(One of the most important things about psychotherapy is that it should not be another burden for you, therefore I provide my services on a sliding scale. Please get in touch for more info.)
