Aylin is a Registered Psychologist who focuses on helping clients work through challenges to experience more positive emotions and self-acceptance. She believes inspiring relationships and nurturing connections are key to living a rich and flourishing life.
“If you’re struggling in your relationships, the key is to be more aware of the part you’re playing in it - are you living according to your values, are you communicating clearly about what you want and what thinking style are you having?”
Using a range of techniques and tools, including coaching, positive psychology, mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy and a strengths-based approach, Aylin has helped clients work through relationships and communication issues, anxiety, stress and trauma.
Her approach is grounded in warmth, empathy and support and her passion lies in helping her clients work with their minds and emotions so they can live their fullest and most engaging life.

AYLIN’S TIP ON HOW TO CREATE A LIFE MOST WORTH LIVING
Spend some time understanding what matters to you most - it could be your values, what you want to stand for, how you want to be remembered, your strengths, or the person that you want to be in relationships with friends, intimate partners, or children.
Remember that a meaningful life is a rich tapestry of experience that will include the whole gamut of emotions; joy, guilt, anger, awe, sadness, gratitude, regret, and more.
Develop awareness of your thoughts and feelings so that you are aware of their impact on your behaviour, and whether your behaviour moves you away or towards taking action that is aligned to your values.
Finally, prioritise practising appreciation for what you do have in your life. Keeping a gratitude journal helps you notice the positive things in your life and appreciate the life you are living.
WHEN NOT IN THE THERAPY ROOM…
