Batu Erinc Oguz

PROVISIONAL PSYCHOLOGIST

Batu is a provisional psychologist who has been in private practice since 2019. Over the course of his training he has become experienced in treating depression and anxiety, relationship difficulties, post-traumatic stress disorder, and panic disorder, and has worked with individuals from a variety of backgrounds, from adolescents to older adults. He uses a variety of approaches and modalities, and works closely with his clients to tailor treatment appropriately and establish a warm therapeutic relationship and common language. His approach borrows from CBT, ACT, IPT and Schema Therapy to understand clients’ difficulties in context but address them in the present.

Having grown up in Australia, Turkey and Scotland, and interacted from a young age with a broad variety of people, Batu maintains an awareness of and curiosity towards individuals’ lives, backgrounds and worldviews, and how difficulties in mental health often occur within these contexts.

Outside of the therapeutic context, he has a longstanding interest in literature and the humanities, including fiction, folklore, history, and psychoanalysis. He also appreciates the importance of physical activity, and the intimate relation between physical and mental health. His activities of choice tend to be reading, rock climbing and hiking with friends.

Batu holds a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Glasgow (2016), and a Graduate Diploma in Psychology from Glasgow Caledonian University (2017).
