Naz Altinok works mainly with a psychodynamic approach but believes that every client is unique thus therapy should be tailored individually. She supports her clients by helping them find the link between their past experiences from childhood and the present difficulties they may be facing with. Naz aims to help her clients understand their feelings, which she believes will give rise to the inner positive change and resolution. She believes a strong therapeutic relationship is crucial for counselling to be beneficial. Sometimes relationships may be enacted in the therapeutic space and Naz aims to create a safe environment for this transference to take place. Naz strongly believes that every person’s story is important, and everyone deserves a space to talk. She provides a warm, empathetic and non-judgmental space for their clients to share their story and feel heard and seen for who they are.
Naz has experience supporting people with a wide range of issues including stress, anxiety, panic attacks, sleeping problems, anger management, self-esteem, depression, racial identity, psychosexual issues, abuse, relationship and family difficulties. She is currently working with adults and children. Naz lived in different countries and came across many cultures, and she understands the difficulties of adapting to a new environment or situations and can also support you with these transitions.
Naz is a psychodynamic counsellor and is a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS). She works within The Awareness Centre’s low cost counselling service in Tooting. She holds a BSc (Hons) in Psychology and is working towards her Masters in Counselling.
