Small but solid steps result in big transformations.
It's time to live the life you want.
Let’s make it happen.
Δ Are you struggling with stress and anxiety?
Δ Do you have a harsh inner critic?
Δ Are you easily overwhelmed by loud noise, bright lights or certain fabrics on your skin?
Δ Do you find yourself putting all your efforts into making others happy but not feeling it yourself?
Δ Are you holding on to your emotions only to find yourself eating snacks late at night or drinking to forget and then blame yourself for the tight jeans or the beer belly?
Unsatisfied with my life, anxious and stressed out all the time, and living the health consequences of that: killing migraines and gastritis followed by chronic fatigue and burnout.
Yes, I've done that and learned it the hard way.
I know you might even have difficulty asking for help and counting on others.
If you are up for it, I’d like to help you take the load off your shoulders and get you where you want.
Δ Where are you in the world? Picture that place in your mind and feel it in your body.
Δ You are happier and healthier.
Δ You are able to cope with anxiety.
Δ You feel confident.
Δ You take better care of yourself.
Δ You are kinder to yourself.
Δ You feel supported. You shine brightly.
Δ You are taking solid steps on your biggest goals.
Δ You are mentally and emotionally stronger.
Δ You feel more resilient.
Δ You are flexible to see things from different angles.
Δ You are more resourceful.
Δ You know what to do.
You just need to take that first step.
When we start working together, you will learn to quiet your inner critic, regulate difficult emotions, love and respect yourself more, and simply be happier in life.
Are you ready for that? I’m ready to help you get there.

Δ "I had the opportunity to discover my potential and my values, understand and process my traumas, learn to believe in, love and care for myself."
Δ "I started to powerfully express myself again and make decisions by valuing myself."
Δ "I can cope with my problems now. You’ve helped me overcome the most difficult days of my life."
Δ "We worked on the areas where my success was blocked and little by little they improved. Instead of feeling dissatisfied, I felt fulfilled; like I was focusing on what really mattered."
Δ "Starting from our very first session with Gökçe, I asked myself, ‘How in the world did I get by for so long without such a supportive professional by my side?’."
Δ "You don’t need to have major problems to benefit from Gökçe’s expertise. She is an expert in the areas of personal development and mental health."
Δ "Through our process together, my perception of my body, my communication skills, the love and respect I have for myself, my perspective on life and other people have completely changed and developed."
Δ "While I was asking myself, 'How can I trust people after all?' Gökçe reminded me of what trust is, with her presence and support."
Δ "I always felt that I was enlightened after each session. She gave me back my lost self."
Δ "I learned that I didn’t always have to take radical and huge steps to give direction to my life; I saw that one could come a long way by taking small steps as well."
Δ "When I think about my future with all its uncertainty, I don’t worry anymore. I think to myself ‘Let’s see what surprises life has for me,’ and my enthusiasm and excitement for life increases each day."
Δ "Gokce provided me with the confidence I needed."
Δ "You’ve helped me overcome the most difficult days of my life. I now take steps to fulfill my future goals and do things that I wanted to do for years."
Δ "My sessions with Gökçe brought a whole new perspective to my life. I now not only live, but I feel life with each breath I take."
Δ "The turning point of my life was the day that I started working with Gökçe. My outlook on life has changed, I learned to cope with my traumas, and most importantly, I learned to love myself."
