PSYCHOTHERAPY

  • Initially focusing on just psychological problems, psychotherapy has become a consultation service catering for the needs of people who wish to improve themselves and desire to make use of their optimal potential. You can also refer to psychotherapy when you feel helpless and in a vicious circle.
    The best and most indispensable prerequisites for achieving long-term success of such a service are receiving such a service voluntarily, cooperating with the counsellor for the solution of the problem and attending the sessions regularly.

    When Psychotherapy helps?


    People facing personal or psychological problems should seek counselling just as they seek medical advice when they need. Psychotherapy is a vital need especially when such problems last a long time and worsen. It is also a need to support personal development.
    The most basic prerequisite for people is to start treatment voluntarily for the therapy to be successful and to be ready to face challenges.

    People facing the following problems should have psychotherapy:

      Psychosomatic disorders (stomach and duodenal ulcer, migraine ....)
      Depression

      Functional disorders (headaches that could not be organic diagnosis, abdominal pain, breathing problems ...)
      Addictions (drugs, alcohol, drug dependence)
      Shyness
      Difficulties with parents

    In addition to the reasons listed above, there might be some other causes to start psychotherapy, some of which are listed below:

      Coping better with illness
      Deciding between the two partners
      Personal and professional development and change as needed

COACHING

  • BUSINESS COACHING


    Business-Coaching is the process structured by experts in order to help to increase the performance of managers. Business-Coaching generally aims to support in solving the problems which occur during the periods as internal restructuring, mergers and other difficult issues. In such cases, business coaching provides personal support to managers in applying the changes inside the company.

    PERSONAL BUSINESS-COACHING


    Additionally , Business-Coaching helps managers to balance work and private life of managers (Work-Life-Balance). Therefore Business-Coaching is usually done by psychologists. In this process, the business coach provides the support to the manager to solve the situation by using the managers’ personal abilities.
    Managers’ personal attitude is extremely important in solving the problems, which especially plays a decisive role in the future of the companies. In fact, high motivation and the ability to make the right decisions at the right time are requested in this process. Therefore, Business-Coaching helps to find effective solutions.

    Business-Coaching as Sparring-partners


    The Business-Coach has to be seen as a partner that supports the manager (sparring-partner). The task is to examine the problems to be resolved from another perspective. Many managers need an objective consultant in such matters.
    During this process, managers face the real sources of the problems, and align the attitudes for solving the problems. Additionally, business coaching helps them to experience self reflection.

    Business Coaching and Consulting


    Business coaching is not a kind of consultation. While the focus in consulting is the analysis of the workplace, business coaching requires a more holistic perspective. In such a case, the personality of the client is analyzed and he is supported through suitable methods to solve existing problems on his own.
    Nowadays the business coaching has become an important component for personal development. Therefore, each individual needs a business coach to have a consistent personal success.

FASTING

  • FASTING with ZAZA YURTSEVER


    Fasting is a non-religious healing method which purifies the body, soul and the mind. Although its history is as ancient as human history, fasting is not known by the vast majority of people.
    Towards the end of 19th century, Dr. Tanner and Dr. Deveys from US, rediscovered fasting as a healing method and after that, multiple doctors and specialists from US, Germany and Russia started to implement it to overcome various health problems.
    Applied in Turkey by clinical psychologist Zaza Yurtsever, this deep healing has been developed by Dr. Otto Buchinger (1878-1966), who played an important role in promoting this method in both Germany and many other countries. Fasting is type of group therapy (with approximately 10-15 people) which has to be done away from the chaotic city life, in the middle of isolated natural places.
    During the 7-day camps, participants basically consume only water and herbal tea. The daily calorie limit has to be 250 for a day because only in this way the body starts to feed itself by using the reserve which is the key point of fasting to work. Drinking a glass of fresh fruit juice in the morning and a hot bowl of vegetable juice in the evening is enough to take 250 calories.
    The programme of the camp includes meditations for body awareness, hypnotherapy sessions, group therapies, yoga sessions and long walks.
