Hello, my name is Olcan and I am a qualified Counsellor and co-founder of Achieve Wellbeing Counselling Services.

I offer a professional, friendly and confidential service within the safe secure confines of “The Amber Room”. I work with both individuals and couples and use an integrative person-centred and cognitive behavioural based approach. I offer both short term and longer term counselling depending on the nature of your problem and have experience in working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, stress, low self esteem, suicidal ideation, bereavement, anger management, addiction and other general wellbeing issues. I can provide daytime, evening and weekend appointments.

1 hour sessions cost £35 (individuals) & £40 (couples)
Student rates are available on request.

I became interested in counselling when I decided to become a volunteer for Childline, NSPCC, then later when working for Cruse Bereavement. I realised if I give someone time, focussed attention and encouragement, they are given the space they need to understand what’s going on in their life. This then allows an individual or couple to move forward in the way they choose. I developed a desire in life to help others in whatever circumstances and situations they face and the natural path for me was to become a fully trained and skilled counsellor.

I work with adults and young people and either individuals or couples in any type of relationship. I feel I can best help by using an integrative humanistic with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach and I believe the therapeutic relationship is the core component of successful therapy.

Being a co founder of Achieve Wellbeing is an important part of my life; I feel privileged to work with people from the mid Ulster area and feedback along with evidence has demonstrated that I have the skills and experience to be a key part of its counselling team.

1 hour sessions cost £40 (individuals) & £40 (couples)
