I am an Istanbul-born Jungian Analyst in-training at ISAP Zurich.
I grew up in Istanbul, a city that literally and metaphorically bridges Europe and Asia. It is a place of transition where one can feel the unique blend of East and West, an aspect with which the stambouliotes closely identify.
I left home first for my bachelor studies in Upstate New York and then came to Lausanne for my master’s. Before settling with my husband and two cats in Biel/Bienne, I lived 7 years in Zürich.
Having started my career in the financial sector and corporate world, I gradually realized that my job was not fulfilling to me. This led me to seek Jungian analysis, which helped me navigate through a challenging but ultimately rewarding period of change, leading to a transformative experience.
The combination of a lack of suitable and meaningful work and my growing interest in the Jungian approach brought me to ISAP, where I have pursued my Jungian Analyst formation since 2015. I had a private practice in Zurich until 2023, and now I work online and in person in Biel/Bienne and Bern. I conduct my sessions in English, French, and Turkish.
