Hi – My name is Aliye and my pronouns are she/her.
I have a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in Comparative Literature from Istanbul Bilgi University. I have over five years of experience working with individuals who are seeking support with trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges and personal growth.
I have a special interest in helping adult survivors of childhood trauma build resilience, feel safe and develop trust in themselves and others and create more fulfilling relationships in their lives.
My priority is to create a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental space where clients can explore and process their thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
My approach is primarily relational and client-centred, meaning that I prioritize building a strong therapeutic relationship with my clients, understanding their individual needs, and collaborating with them to develop personalized treatment plans.
My practice is grounded in the latest research in the field and integrates a range of evidence-based techniques to ensure that my clients receive an effective treatment that is tailored to their unique needs and experiences. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I also incorporate mindfulness and somatic approaches to help clients develop a deeper understanding and connection with their bodies.
I am committed to providing culturally sensitive and inclusive care to all clients, and I strive to create a safe and welcoming space for individuals of diverse backgrounds.
My goal is to help my clients cultivate a greater sense of safety, trust, and empowerment while also developing practical skills and tools to navigate challenges with greater ease and resilience. Together, we work towards moving beyond trauma and towards a more positive and fulfilling future.
Aliye sees clients in-person and online and offers therapy in both English and Turkish.
