About the therapist
Hana Al-Mahari (Trainee Psychotherapist (UPCA student member))
My name is Hana Al-Mahari. I am a trainee psychotherapist working in the low-cost therapy and counselling service at the Existential Academy in Istanbul, Turkey.
I’m currently in my second year of Doctorate (DCPsych) in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling, which is based on an existential approach to therapy. My background is in Psychology, Training and Development, HR and Project Management.
As human beings, we are full of flaws, full of hope, desires and fear. Our souls are full of sorrow, full of love, happiness, madness and angst.
In these difficult times, we are living different emotions in an accelerated manner.
Therapy can be of benefit to all of us to ease what we are going through and regulate our emotions.
I’m a passionate individual and I’m here to offer a welcoming and warm environment where respect and unconditional positive regard are at the core of my ethos.
I come from a background where suffering is not shared but hidden, where wearing a brave facade is the only thing they know. Embracing vulnerability and accepting help and support is something I learned after going through many trials.
Hence, my commitment and devotion toward raising awareness of the importance of therapy in society.
I’m keen to listen to you and share your journey of exploration, my aim is to assist you in finding the tools you need to feel empowered and to make the changes you deem necessary in your life.
I’m interested and honoured to work with individuals from any background. My interests are in the following areas:
