İmge is a psychologist at OpenUp. During your conversations, she finds it important that a non-judgmental and safe atmosphere is provided to be able to share sensitive subjects and challenges. In addition, she guides you to explore your needs to help gain a better understanding of yourself.
With İmge, you will work together to raise awareness in terms of your needs, (mal)adaptive thoughts, and ways to implement problem-solving changes. You can contact İmge if you experience complaints related to stress, anxiety, self-confidence, interpersonal relationships, or any other similar areas.
İmge emphasises that you can observe together any areas of improvement in your life and take a solution-oriented and effective action plan. In your meetings, she will mainly use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness exercises. These will help you explore your thoughts, gain different perspectives, be compassionate towards yourself, and come up with more adaptive behavioural strategies.
To take care of her mental health, Imge takes long walks, exercises, cooks new recipes, travels to new places, and socialises with others. To stay mindful or recognise positive aspects, she tries to do these activities regularly, keeping in mind to be aware of her surroundings and her feelings.
İmge obtained her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at Leiden University. She has worked and provided psychological counselling in various settings such as NGOs and psychological counselling centres since 2019.
She speaks both Turkish and English.
