Emel is an integrative child and adolescent psychotherapist and comes from a creative arts background, which enables her therapy practice to use creative methods when working with children, to help them make sense of their overwhelming feelings or difficult experiences. Emel believes that compassion, empathy and the alliance between the therapist and the client is key for therapeutic change.
While working with adult, Emel understands that our early experiences shape how we deal with today’s difficulties. The integrative element of Emel’s approach means she is able to use different therapy approaches and tailor those to each individual’s strengths and needs. Her framework will always include neuroscientific understanding of attachment and trauma, psychodynamic and humanistic therapies, and cognitive elements such as psycho-education.
In reflective parenting sessions, Emel will aim is to provide a non-judgemental space to help parents strengthen their skills in understanding the inner world of their child. The parents may need this support when their child is a baby or they are about to leave home, and anywhere in between.
