A Happy You,

a Happy World.

Are you ready for that?

It all starts with you deciding to take that first step.

Small but solid steps result in big transformations.

You know that you're more than ready to overcome what's keeping you stuck. Let’s make it happen.

You're an overachiever who sets high standards for yourself. You’re smart, kind, and have a big purpose in life. From the outside, it seems like you have it all.

But it comes with a price.

Δ Are you struggling with stress and anxiety?

Δ Do you have a harsh inner critic?

Δ Are you a highly sensitive person (HSP), who is a deep thinker, very observant, and easily overwhelmed by bright lights, loud noise 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 regretting it afterward?

Δ Are you an expat looking for an online therapist with international experience?

You might be prioritizing your work and the people in your life over your own wellbeing.

It's okay if you do, I understand what you’re going through.

I’ve been there.

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.

There is a better way though.

If you are up for it, I’d like to help you take the load off your shoulders and get you where you want.

Imagine yourself in your ideal future

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 feel confident. 

Δ You take better care of yourself.

Δ You are kinder to yourself.

Δ You feel supported.

Δ You perform at your best.

Δ You are taking solid steps on your biggest goals.

And whenever you face life’s challenges

(let’s accept it, we all will at some point),

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.

All of this is possible for you.

You just need to take that first step.

When we start working together, you will learn to quiet the inner critic, regulate difficult emotions, love and respect yourself more, and simply be confident, resilient and happier in life.

It's time to stop saying yes to what keeps you stuck and start saying YES to YOURSELF.

Are you ready for that? I’m ready to help you get there.

Would you like to hear from my previous clients?

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."

I know you might be thinking that you're too far from reaching your goals. I'm here to tell you that small steps will get you there faster than no step at all.

You can go from feeling overwhelmed with life to feeling confident and getting fueled by the joy of living your life.

It breaks my heart to see kind and compassionate fellow highly sensitive leaders suffering when a little shift can bring about their immense potential.

This could be you. I can facilitate that shift.

Would you like to bring back a gentle, childlike innocence to life that sometimes gets lost in an often complicated and demanding world?

I’d be happy to guide you in this transformative journey in the direction that you want to go and make sure that you stay on track.

Whatever it is that you want for yourself when it comes to your own happiness and life goals, I’m here to support you with my whole being.
