I’m a psychologist and psychotherapist from Turkey. I am a Ph.D. candidate in clinical psychology, trained in behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, and solution-focused approaches mainly. I also use EMDR for trauma treatment. I provide psychotherapy for individuals and couples both in Turkey and everywhere else via teletherapy.
I define my approach to psychotherapy as humanistic, client-focused, goal-oriented, and time-limited. Cognitive Behavioral techniques form the backbone of my intervention techniques. I also benefit from solution-focused approaches and techniques. I make extensive use of mindfulness and somatic interventions in my work. Compassion-Focused Therapy has been the basis of my approach lately, as it functions as a framework that allows me to combine all these techniques into a coherent whole.

My interest and training in CFT are rather recent. I did attend the intro and advanced workshops of Compassionate Mind Foundation online and the advanced one was facilitated by Prof. Paul Gilbert. I’m regularly attending peer consultation and supervision groups and have an ongoing individual supervision process. I had extensive training and supervision on behavioral and cognitive-behavioral approaches, especially during my Ph.D. studies.
