I am Zekiye qualified Counsellor and Intercultural Psychotherapist here to help you to overcome challenges and distress you are facing in your life. I am an English, German and Kurdish ( Kurmanji) speaking therapist and work with clients from a wide diverse background.
Your concern will be the focus during the session while other issues can be explored too. I have years of experience working with individuals of all ages to increase wellbeing and mental health.
My expertise is working with clients from cultural and linguistic diverse backgrounds and I offer counselling in German and Kurmanji language ( Kurdish dialect). To find more about the areas I work please visit my page How Can Counselling Help.
Alongside my private practice in East Finchley, Central London and online therapy I continuously work with mental health charities offering individual counselling and general wellbeing services to Black and ethnical marginalised communities.
I have been trained at Nafsiyat Intercultural Therapy Centre where I run ongoing psycho-educational support groups for adults. I have an integrative therapy approach embedding therapeutic theories such as person-centred, psychoanalyses, relational and mindfulness which I will utilise depending on your presenting issue to support you. In order to meet your needs, I regularly undertake training regarding safeguarding, data protection, confidentiality and supervision to keep up with the evolving environment.

"I have however had the most wonderful time with you. You have helped me in unimaginable ways that I can't even put into words. Even though I have a long way to go, I am a completely different person than the one who walked into your office some time ago and I really don't even know how to thank you for it"
"I would like to say that the therapy with you was the best thing I’ve done to myself in my life. In the future if I need more sessions I would love to contact you and I hope you will be able to find time for me."
"Zekiye is a kind, reliable and caring therapist who helped me unearth the roots of my adult patterns and behaviour. Thanks to our sessions I was also able to greatly improve the previously difficult relationship with my family. I’m really grateful for that."
