Dilek Nakiboglu (MBACP Reg.) Psychotherapist/Counsellor
2 Shelburne Road
I am a qualified, BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) registered, person-centered counsellor and psychoterapist. I offer empathy, nonjudgemental safe space and genuine encounter to my clients.
I believe in equal therapeutic relationship in counselling, respecting and accepting you as who you are and to accompany you in your journey where you want to go in your life.
How I work?
Counselling is about understanding where we are now, where did we come from and what type of changes we want to make in our life. The relationship between counsellor and the client is the real one; reflective, genuine, authentic and congruent. Therapy can help you to gain more awareness about yourself, your identity, and your patterns in life, encouraging you to remove the obstacles in front of you to achieve your potential through personal growth.
Some people may know where they want to go in their life, but somehow they may still feel stuck. My aim is to encourage my clients to get more self awareness about themselves, to fully accept who they are and to explore what is going on for them in their life.
The difficulty could be very hard to bear but there is always hope and doing something about it is better than doing nothing. Loving life starts with loving ourselves as respecting others starts with respecting ourselves. It is easy to shift to unhappy way of being, but also happiness could be inches away.
We all make choices in life and some choices are better than others. Counselling can help individuals with learning from the choices they make and to work on how they can make better choices in the future.
