Nesli Karadeniz

Psychologist

Nesli practices a cognitive behavioural approach called Reality Therapy (ref: Dr William Glasser, USA) when working with her clients. She believes that a caring, empathic relationship lies at the heart of any kind of therapy and works with clients to offer insights into how making rational, effective choices can heal the mind and soul. She believes that we get into emotional binds like depression not because our standards are too high, but because our performance has been and is too low. Her objective is not to lower the aim, but to support her clients increase their accomplishments, by helping them fulfill their needs in the real world. Her method of strengthening her clients coping mechanisms involves honesty, concern, personal authenticity and confrontation.
