Hi, I'm Ayhan, thank you for visiting my profile page.


Embarking on the journey to find the right therapist can seem akin to traversing through unknown lands. I appreciate that such a venture is layered with doubts, potential hesitations, and a myriad of questions. In our duty-bound and demanding world, choosing to prioritise mental health is a commendable step, a representation of your courage, tenacity, and the quest for a more enriched life.

Our sessions will aim at highlighting your innate strengths and capabilities and structuring feasible steps to realise your objectives. Through thoughtful exploration, you will acquire the knowledge to forge rewarding and harmonious relationships with yourself and your surroundings.


I am devoted to establishing a therapeutic relationship grounded in mutual trust, esteem, and shared goals. Together, we will navigate through your current struggles, discover your potential, and work towards the changes you are aiming for.

About Me:

My pursuit of psychotherapy stems from a profound curiosity about the intricacies of human experiences and has evolved into a fervent dedication to aiding individuals to navigate the complexities of life. My distinctiveness is not just anchored in my extensive five-year MSc in psychotherapy but also in my unwavering commitment to understanding the unique narratives of each individual.


I embarked on my psychotherapeutic journey in 2014 with roles in the voluntary sector and the NHS, transitioning to private practice in 2017. A native of Germany, I relocated to London in 2010 and spent two years in Marbella, Spain, offering psychotherapy services to English and German-speaking communities.
