Hello, I am Meral. You may have arrived at this page because you are wanting to feel different. Reaching out and taking the step to support ourselves in times of need is an act of compassion. Sometimes in times of difficulty the impact of our thoughts, feelings and behaviours can create and maintain cycles that can show up as depression, anxiety or other mental health and wellbeing issues. Together we can explore and make sense of what you may be experiencing and work towards acquiring a deeper understanding as well as adopting tools and techniques to promote self-empowerment, choice and change. Using evidence-based interventions I can work with you to adapt treatments to suit your needs. I am skilled at drawing upon my expertise and experience, primarily in CBT, but often complemented by the other therapeutic approaches. I believe in working with what clients bring and creating a plan together geared towards the change that is wanted. I also endeavour to enable our sessions to inspire you beyond our work to continue to use what has been learned to continue progress and to maintain wellbeing. I aim to create a safe, supportive and judgement free environment in this journey together.
