At Orchard, Elif offers a safe and confidential space where you can work on any issue without being judged. By drawing on a range of therapeutic models, she works with her clients to move positively forward. She believes that “vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation, creativity and change” (Brené Brown). These changes lead to a better quality of life and liberation to reach your highest deserved potential, as well as a stronger Community.
Elif appreciates that true healing is mobilised by taking care of our Whole Person. Mental and emotional health represent only part of this Whole. Please explore the other modalities offered at Orchard to support you on your physical journey and find harmony at all levels.
