About Me


Burčak Emel Alav

Psychologist & Dietitian

In high school, I always dreamed of working in healthcare. That’s why I chose Nutrition and Dietetics as my bachelor’s. After completing my first year with high grades, I found the opportunity for doing a double major in Psychology. So, I completed both B.A. Psychology, and B.Sc. Nutrition-Dietetics at Yeditepe University, both with high honors. Then, I went to Montreal, Canada, to get my graduate degree. I earned my master’s degree in Human Nutrition from McGill University. During this journey, I had the opportunity to delve deep into the impact of clinical nutrition science on human well-being.
In addition to my academic achievements, I have pursued several professional trainings. I completed foundational Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) certifications from the BECK Institute and the Enhanced Cognitive Behavior Therapy for Eating Disorders (CBT-E) training offered by The Center for Research on Eating Disorders at Oxford University. Both of them make the foundation of my current practice. In addition to them, I have also completed various trainings such as family counseling, psychological first aid, trauma-focused therapies, grief and bereavement counseling, and more. These trainings have strengthened my ability to provide support during difficult periods in people’s lives. Moreover, I also have a background in psycho-oncology, having completed training in working with individuals in the cancer journey using trauma-focused cognitive therapy, accredited by the International Psycho-oncology Society (IPOS). This experience has equipped me with a deeper understanding of psychotherapeutic processes and the skills to guide individuals with chronic health problems.
With this wealth of experience, I’m eager to stand by your side on your path to well-being. Each individual is unique, and I’m dedicated to providing a personalized approach to help you achieve your physical and mental health goals. Let’s embark on this journey together, where experience meets expertise.

I have active memberships in professional boards both in Czech Republic and in Turkey.
