Bilgen Terapi Enstitüsü

“Psychotherapy deals with any adversity in life that people cannot overcome using their own personal or social resources, or which causes psychological distress. Deciding to seek psychotherapy is a brave step in which people dare to confront the most painful and vulnerable sides of themselves.”

How does change occur in psychotherapy? Is it possible to change just by talking? It should be understood from the outset that nobody gets better just by talking. But psychotherapy is never just about talking. Change has to manifest in actions. Thus, the goal is always to change actual real-life behavior, which serves as the litmus test for the effectiveness of any psychotherapy. At Bilgen Terapi Enstitüsü, this service is provided by specialized therapists in both Turkish and English.
