About Dr. Merih Bektas Fidan

Dear client, 

This is a basic information sheet about me and how i work. I believe that knowing what will happen and how we will be working together ill be helpful to you. So, wWe will have an open, honest, gentle yet structured conversations in our sessions. I work with both females and males and young people over 16. When a client presents complex mental health problems, I either organize a joint assessment session with the consultant psychiatrist whom I work with or signpost them. I might give you small tasks and scales to complete and some writing exercises for monitoring reasons. I offer my services through WhatsApp/ Skype calls or video sessions on zoom. If a client requires further guidance regarding their academic work, employment and career as part of their emotional and psychological well-being, I also support them through coaching and mentoring. I tend to accommodate my clients’ timetable, offering weekdays and weekends and morning and late evening sessions. Paying on time and punctuality are important. 

I try to work effectively with my clients as I am aware of their time, their commitment and cost for them. I believe that getting a sound grip of your difficulties is vital right in the beginning. Too soon or frequent breaks will reduce your concentration and thus motivation. For that reason, please expect that the first session may take longer than an hour as it will be about listening to you in detail and assessing your needs. Once we agree on working together with a sound commitment, you will quickly take the control of your life back again. 

Confidentiality is of paramount importance. You are welcome to use another name. I take short notes to remember but I discard them after some time. I do not keep any identifiable information. No information will be shared with anyone. I further inform my clients that I will not know you out there with your personal story you shared with me.  So, do not exchange your story with everyone if you don’t want to and when you are not ready to do so. 

Kind regards and with du’as,

I speak
English Turkish
