About Leyla Gulcur
If you struggle with loss of passion, are dissatisfied with your sex life, get stuck in repeated conflict, experience culture clashes or find it challenging to navigate a non-traditional relationship, I am here to provide you with culturally competent sex and relationship therapy. Whether you're in a committed relationship, dating casually or are single but want to enhance your relational skills, I will help you learn to communicate powerfully and clearly to ask for what you want, build emotional connection, access passion and build skills for optimal sex. Bi/multicultural, LGBTQ+, kink, open relationships welcome.
I use an integrative mind-body approach involving mindfulness, slow sex practices, cognitive-behavior therapy, Focusing, the Gottman Method, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Non-Violent Communication. Sessions may also at times incorporate movement and breathing techniques from Chinese martial arts, Qigong and Tantra.
I am multilingual in English, Turkish and French and often work with people who are bicultural, multicultural, travel frequently, or are expats. I make therapy accessible to you by also offering convenient video sessions you can do from the comfort of your home, office, hotel and even your car.
