Hello and thank you for visiting my web site. I hope to be by your side while you are making your own very personal journey to finding fulfilment and joy in your life.
I’ve graduated from IICP College in Dublin with a BA Level 8 (Hons) Degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy. I also hold Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and BSc in Chemistry Degrees along with a Diploma in Nursing and also Life Coaching. I have a strong background in business, worked in Direct Medical Ltd. (www.directmedical.ie) as co-founder and Commercial Director for 17 years. I directed the Home Care Department that is looking after thousands of patients in the community for their medical equipment needs. I also worked as a General Nurse for five years prior to moving into the commercial sector. I’m a Board Member in Safe Ireland National Social Change Agency (www.safeireland.ie), working towards making Ireland the safest country in the world for women and children.
Integrative counselling and psychotherapy is an established and respected movement that is based on merging the best of differing therapy orientations so that more comprehensive and effective therapy models can be developed. My work is Evidence-Based, which is backed by scientific evidence where studies have been conducted and extensive research has been documented on a particular treatment, and it has proven to be successful. My goal is to use safe and effective treatments that are likely to achieve results and lessen the use of unproven, potentially unsafe treatments. Every client is unique therefore requires a unique approach tailored specifically for them. My approach is to treat every individual as a whole being with their heart, mind, body and spirit working harmoniously. I work under the Ethical Guidelines of the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP, www.iacp.ie) and strictly adhere to the rules and regulations in client privacy and confidentiality. I work in a multi-cultural framework, provide therapy in both English and Turkish.
I provide general counselling and psychotherapy service, specifically dealing with depression, anxiety disorders, developmental and attachment issues, addiction and concerned significant others, grief, loss and bereavement, self-esteem and self-worth issues, relationship problems, suicidal ideation, intimate partner violence (domestic violence), Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), gender based violence, trauma, complex-trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), LGBTQ+, existential issues, meaninglessness, stress related issues, future planning and setting goals.
Attending counselling and psychotherapy is a deeply personal experience. I look forward to witnessing and accompanying your journey in being the best possible version of yourself.
