About me

Hello,
I have earned a BA degree in Philosophy at Boğaziçi University. Throughout my undergraduate education, I followed psychology courses as well as philosophy courses related to psychology. Afterward, I completed a pre-master year in psychology and completed psychology undergraduate courses at the University of Groningen, one of the top 100 universities in the world. I earned an MSc degree in clinical psychology from the same university. My master thesis topic was 'Effect of social interactions on self-esteem and negative affect in psychopathy and narcissism groups'. I worked in a clinic in the Netherlands after my graduation and then turned back to Turkey.

My approach

*I also offer a 15-minute free meeting. before starting therapy.*

I work in accordance with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I apply CBT therapy modalities to Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders, and other disorders in the DSM V. I also enjoy putting positive psychology elements into my therapy. I am a detail-oriented analytic thinker. So, besides the time I spend in sessions, I value background work, such as diagnostic reports, treatment plans, and routine outcome monitoring. I find the balance between evidence-based interventions -acting based on national guidelines and following treatment protocols- and creative spontaneity. Furthermore, I greatly value cooperation, sincere and open communication, and feedback.

CBT is scientifically the most effective therapy form for many disorders. It is an umbrella term for different therapy components/modalities like Prolonged Exposure, Behavioral Activation, Cognitive Restructuring, Exposure with Response Prevention, and Interoceptive Exposure. CBT is present-oriented, time-limited, goal-oriented, and structured. You can learn more about CBT through this link: https://beckinstitute.org/about/understanding-cbt/

I follow the national guidelines of the Netherlands. You can also access them through this link: https://www.ggzstandaarden.nl/

I believe real therapy takes focus, mental effort, and time dedicated to each individual. I don't believe seeing 40 patients a week does the trick. That's why I have a limit of 15 patients and take no more than that at a given time.
