Dilek Bozan

Integrative Therapist

I am a qualified and experienced BACP registered therapeutic counsellor with number of years’ experience in NHS and Private settings. It is my belief that counselling is not about seeking perfection, but is, rather a process towards acceptance of the whole self. To this end we explore the influence of your past, the realities of your present and the significant events impacted your life and the way you react to world. We all have our own unique stories to tell. Our stories hold significant clues about the struggles we experience in the present with our own needs and relationships. By exploring these things through therapy, we may open up new possibilities and maybe even re-write our stories.


Although my approach is drawn from several different theoretical perspectives which are Existential, Humanistic, with Person-centred theory as its foundation. I deeply believe that the quality of our relationship is key to progress. I meet you as an individual with your unique way of experiencing the world and your troubles and seek to gain insight into how you experience your confusion, worry, discomfort, distress, or whatever it is that brings you to therapy.


The first session comprises an assessment to hear your story, get a sense of who you are and give you the opportunity to meet me, learn about my approach in order to decide whether you would like to engage with therapy and whether I am the right counsellor for you.


I am an integrative Relational counsellor, which means I combine a variety of therapeutic approaches (Gestalt, Humanistic, Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic, Internal Family Systems Therapy) so that as we work together, I can adapt to your needs.
