Cigdem Tas, Psychologist, Counselor&Psychotherapist, Supervisor, Reg.BACP
Life struggles are paradoxical and complex and it sometimes can be experienced very overwhelming. But it is also the opportunity to understand yourself better.
If you are looking for a highly confidential and supportive space to address your life issues that are holding you back, I am here to listen and help you to explore better options to respond them together.
Therapy helps you to observe your approach to your personal and professional relationships and regaining courage to connect them more creatively.
I provide individual and group therapy via face-to-face, telephone and online. It can be short-term or open ended.
I am a BACP registered and accredited Psychotherapist with long lasting experience. I am trained in Existential-Phenomenological Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, CBT and Third waves of CBT ( ACT- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
My therapeutic approach is to develop a good therapeutic relationship in which you can feel safe, empowered, ready to explore and reflect what life brings to you. Therapy is for asking some sensitive questions and finding better ways to feel contained and resilient in life. I am here to help you develop kindness and ease on your journey by reflecting, exploring and creative responses whatever you are going through. Isolation always makes it more difficult to tackle life challenges.
I am based in N4 two minutes from the Finsbury Park Station.
What to expect initially
You can contact me via counselling directory website to ask for initial session. This session is about to find out what you are looking for, your expectations, what I can offer, how I work and how to plan your therapy journey.
Once we agreed on regular sessions I usually see you once a week. Weekly sessions are the most common and more required frequency. However, I sometimes provide flexibility on that according to what you want.
