During 1997-2010 I organized group therapy sessions for cancer patients at the Cerrahpaşa Medical Faculty. At the end of these meetings which are held once a week, the quality of life of my patients improved markedly. The value of scientific data became better understood. Interestingly the patients’ sense of humour improved, and their levels of anxiety and depression decreased.

I now wish to organise group therapy sessions in my private clinic in order to share this experience. For cancer patients who wish to participate in the group sessions (cancer patients’ economic difficulties are taken into consideration), please contact Ms. Filiz on 0212 231 18 86 or 0553 216 74 23.
