  • How would you describe your coaching style and methodology as an integrative nutrition and health coach?
    My coaching style is deeply rooted in the belief that each individual is unique, and so are their health and nutritional needs. I adopt an integrative approach that combines the fundamentals of dietetics with holistic wellness strategies. This means focusing on the food my clients eat and understanding their lifestyle, stress levels, emotional health, and other environmental factors. My method is collaborative – I work alongside my clients to create personalized plans that are realistic, sustainable, and tailored to their individual goals.
  • What are some key principles or philosophies that guide your health coaching practice?
    One of the core principles of my practice is the concept of bio-individuality – the idea that there's no one-size-fits-all solution to health and wellness. Another key philosophy is integrating mental and emotional health with physical nutrition. I believe in empowering clients helping them to become more mindful of their bodies and their choices, leading to a healthier and more balanced lifestyle.
  • How do you address common challenges clients face, such as weight management or lifestyle changes?
    Addressing challenges like weight management or lifestyle changes begins with understanding the underlying causes. It’s not just about dieting or exercising; it's about identifying and modifying behaviors and habits. I use a combination of nutritional education, behavioral change strategies, and continuous support to help clients make and maintain meaningful changes. Regular check-ins, goal-setting, and motivational techniques are also key components of my approach.
  • Can you share how you incorporate your experiences from different cultural and healthcare backgrounds into your coaching?
    My diverse experiences across different cultures and healthcare systems allow me to bring a rich perspective to my coaching. I understand the nuances of various dietary habits and health perceptions that differ from one culture to another. This helps me in creating more inclusive and empathetic nutrition plans. My time in American hospitals, in particular, has given me insights into various health issues prevalent in Western societies, which I integrate into my coaching for a more comprehensive approach.

  • How did your academic pursuits, particularly your master's thesis on eating disorders, influence your professional approach?
    My master's thesis on eating disorders was a turning point in my career. It brought to light the complex relationship between mental health and eating habits. This research profoundly influenced my approach, underscoring the need for a holistic perspective in nutrition and health coaching that considers not just the physical aspects of eating but also the psychological and emotional factors.
  • What inspired you to transition from a hospital dietitian to opening your clinic in Istanbul?
    After several years in the hospital, I realized that my passion for nutrition extended beyond clinical dietetics. I wanted to explore a more holistic approach to health. Opening my clinic in Istanbul allowed me to integrate traditional dietary principles with psychological and emotional aspects of well-being. It was about creating a space where all facets of health could be addressed in unison.
