I had regular sessions with Melike while she was based in London. I was very confused about a relationship I was in at the time, and had always suffered from anxiety. Melike is extremely kind, professional and perceptive. With her help I was able to identify some of the reasons that lay behind my feelings towards myself and others. While I wouldn't pretend this immediately 'cured' my anxiety, it felt liberating and helped cause a shift in my perspective. These insights helped me at the time and are still helping me now.
