MENTAL HEALTH INTERNATIONAL
English and Turkish speaking Psychologist, providing evidence-based therapeutic care tailored to your request for help.
"The attempt to escape from pain, is what creates more pain"
I am an English/Turkish speaking psychologist based in Maastricht. I am a registered psychologist in The Netherlands and a member of the Nederlands Institute of Psychologists (NIP), working with individuals with psychological complaints and difficult personal circumstances.
Within my work I utilize a holistic approach to treatment, taking into account each individual's life circumstances and goals for treatment.
Overall, I bring an empathic, colloborative, non-judgemental approach to my work and I am highly committed to helping my clients overcome challenges and begin to heal from psychological distress.
I graduated from Australia with a bachelor in Psychology and Anthropology, before undertaking a master program in Neuropsychology at University of Maastricht.
For 5 years, i have worked at an international clinic in Limburg where I provided adults from international community (expats, military personnel) with psychological support for a wide range of clinical disorders (depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction), as well as insight-oriented therapy for personality disorders. Currently, I am working at Maastricht University as a student psychologist, offering guidance to students.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT AND MY SERVICES
We start with a 30 min introduction session where we get to know each other and discuss your request for help. Therapy starts with an intake session where we colloboratively explore and discuss the problem(s) or life circumstances you wish to focus on. Based on the information, we will then formulate a treatment plan, outlining specific treatment strategies in order to support you in achieving your goals.
We will work on the agreed treatment goals in subsequent sessions, using a range of psychological interventions in order to promote a reduction in symptoms and / or improved insight into underlying complaints. Moreover, we will regularly evaluate treatment to ensure treatment progress.
I implement a wide range of evidence-based therapeutic interventions;
Mentalization Based Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment therapy
