Mastering emotional well-being helps create thriving workplaces, where teams perform at their best.

As a counseling psychologist specializing in the mental health and emotional well-being of high-performers, I empower leadership teams to cultivate thriving workplaces through mindfulness-based talks, workshops, and programs.

Why work with me?

Expert Knowledge + Evidence-Based Practices

All sessions are delivered by myself, Dr. Gökçe Bulgan, Counseling Psychologist & Adjunct Associate Professor with 20 years of both theoretical and applied experience in the field of psychology.

  • I received my Ph.D. degree in Counseling Psychology from Purdue University's American Psychological Association accredited program [so everything I do is based on science].
  • I have more than 15,000 hours of experience working with clients in the psychotherapy context [so I know what people struggle with the most when it comes to their mental health and well-being].
  • I continue to stay up-to-date with the latest research findings by conducting research studies on psychological well-being and work-life issues published in peer-reviewed journals. 

"I’m so delighted that I had a chance to learn a lot about mindfulness and emotional intelligence from Gökçe. I really enjoyed having Gökçe as a guest speaker in a company-wide webinar about Finding Balance in Mindfulness. Also, I’ve completed the Search Inside Yourself Program - Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence for Leaders that she led successfully. She created a very open dialogue and a warm and welcoming learning atmosphere for all participants from different practices and backgrounds. She is encouraging, supportive, authentic, and humble. She empowered us to develop leadership and emotional intelligence skills, intensify focus, manage stress, harness creativity, and improve resilience. She is exceptionally experienced in mental and emotional well-being topics and is always willing to share best practices. I highly recommend Gökçe’s trustworthy guidance to everyone who wants to change their perspective and attitude towards well-being and mindfulness at work. She is an outstanding facilitator and such a great professional."

Sevla, VP of People and Culture


"I met Gökçe Bulgan in Febuary 2022, while she facilitated the Mindfulness-Based Emotional Intelligence and Leadership Program. I would like to thank Gökçe for sharing the practices that we can easily adapt to our daily lives, creating a safe and genuine environment and raising the energy of the learning environment with all her warmth and smiling face. I wholeheartedly recommend the program to anyone who is in a busy rush, has difficulty in describing their own feelings, wants to experience "being" instead of "doing" for a period of time, and wants to take this training from an expert trainer online from the comfort of their own home."

Seda, HR Manager 


"SIY is a well-designed program to apply mindfulness to work and is a good way to start to know your mind and yourself. I’m a meditation and MBSR Teacher. In this program, I have learned how to apply meditation into daily life and work life practically with short versions. The program was highly instructive and enjoyable with the safe space supported by Gökçe. Gökçe is a smart, kind, competent and compassionate teacher. She listens very carefully and opens space to share. She manages time well. I highly recommend to work with Gökçe."
