Zerrin Simsek Dolen (BSc Hons, PgDip, MBACP accred.)
Welcome, I'm Zerrin.
My approach is in Integrative Psychotherapy, a more person-centered approach. I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues, providing services that span from therapy for depression and anxiety, addiction, grief counselling and beyond. In a safe and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalised approach tailored to each of my clients' individual needs to help attain the personal growth they are looking for. I will listen to your personal experience and walk with you, on your journey to change.
I also specialise in working with children and young people who are experiencing anxiety, depression, eating disorders and self-harming behaviours.
We experience anxiety, fear, sadness, depression or uncertainty at some point of our lives, these thoughts and feelings can become overwhelming and lead to psychological dysfunction. I believe counselling can help you begin to tolerate, accept, make lasting personal change, giving you a stronger sense of who you are and what you need, it can guide you through some of life’s major transitions.
Typically, we will have an initial session in which to explore what has brought you to counselling, we can explore if we think we are suited to working with each other. I offer both short-term and long-term therapy. The duration of therapy depends on a client's needs and concerns and this is discussed at the initial session.
Whether it is the first time you are considering counselling or have some experience of therapy in the past, please feel free to contact me for a brief chat on how therapy could help you and your problems.
Taking the initial step can be difficult, but stepping into a therapeutic journey is highly likely to be rewarding at the end.
