“In therapy, clients bring their entire individual and socioeconomic life. They deserve a therapist who can truly relate to their rich, intersectional existence.”
I am Zekiye Kartal, a qualified Intercultural Counsellor offering individual therapy. I aim to help you to overcome the challenges and distress you are facing in your life.
Working together in a safe space can give you a greater insight into the difficulties you are facing and help you understand why you act or react to them the way you do. From there, we can work towards healthier choices to move forward.
My clients have often experienced inequality and discrimination. Further might have faced challenges in self-expression at work. Others face educational institutions or relationships, within their own community and family as well. I provide a safe environment and empathy by listening to you or offering a different view to make sense of what is happening to you.
My approach is warm, yet with direct challenging. I always remain non-judgemental to help you find methods of coping.
Intercultural Therapy works cross-culturally. We will not avoid discussing inequality, race, and institutional discrimination and will work with you collaboratively to dismantle oppressive structures and help you to find your voice.
