Health psychology is one of the 10 areas of psychology as specified by the Turkish Psychological Association (TPD). It is about the connections between physical health conditions and the psychology of the person.
Finding a psychologist who understands the unique emotional challenges associated with having a chronic health condition is really important. OZ Psychological Consultancy understands how challenging it can be to maintain healthy behaviours and a healthy mindset when dealing with health problems. Through counselling, practitioners in the OZ Psychological Consultancy can help you to overcome set-backs that are an inevitable part of managing a long-term health condition. Together, you will work to understand how past and present issues are preventing you from achieving your health-related goals, while also managing any psychological problems. Some of the concerns that OZ Psychological Consultancy may help with include:
- Coping with cancer/Psycho-oncology
- - Insomnia and other sleep issues
- Adjustment issues
- Depression and anxiety
- Grief and loss

Therapy may be short-term (6 – 10 sessions) or for some problems, may be longer-term.

- Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT)
- Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
