Overview

Rana Kökçinar is a PACFA registered psychotherapist, and works with children and families, using expressive modalities to create opportunities for a safe, engaging and enthusiastic experience of therapy. She especially likes working with children who enjoy movement based play, narrative-style play, and using creative metaphors to facilitate dialogue with teenage clients. An important aspect of Rana’s work involves working collaboratively with families in a way that validates power injustices and systemic oppression, while striving to create opportunities for families’ strengths and important values to also come forward. She strives continuously toward cultural democracy and humility in her work. She is a passionate member of the LGBTQIATS+ community, and welcomes clients from all walks of life. Rana has experience in providing counselling to young adults at the University of Adelaide College, and provided psychotherapy for adults and children in distress at the Humane Clinic, and is currently a volunteer at the Just Listening Community. Rana is passionate around subjects of critical psychology, climate change related distress, decolonising and anti-oppressive methods and qualitative research in psychotherapy. Rana has a background in medical science and public health research. She completed her Master of Counselling and Psychotherapy from The University of Adelaide. Here, she received the Adelaide Graduate Award for her co-curricular work and volunteering, and was the MCP representative on the School of Public Health Board. Outside of her work, she enjoys yoga, bike riding and dancing.
