Dear Dr. Sungur,
I am writing on behalf of a friend, here in Turkey, suffering from obsession (neutral obsession, mostly, referring to sight and hearing). He has been in doctors misdiagnosed and mistreated for about 7-8 years.
I am trying to find a CBT therapist that give him therapy and not only medications, but they only thing they give is more and more medications. We asked for Skype sessions with a CBT doctor in NYC, but it didn’t work because my friend’s English. He’s been going to a CBT clinic in Istanbul since September but they only give him Anafranil, antipsychotic (he is not psychotic), benzodiazepines, and another atypical antidepressant. I am reading a book that an American doctor recommended me, “Freedom from OCD” and there they say that CBT, ERP and SSRIs are the best treatment, but so far no one has tried this with my friend. Well, in December his doctor tried some ERP, but without any previous CBT, only medication and my friend got into a crisis. Now he is very bad again, and seeing that the doctor keeps sending the same kind of medications, he is hopeless.
His main objection for hope ,right now, is that there is no other case like his case. I’ve tried to explain to him that it doesn’t matter if the obsession is with his eyesight or with his navel size, that the obsession mechanism is the same, but he doesn’t believe me (he thinks i say this just to make him feel better).
So, out of desperation, watching how someone that could have a normal life is sinking in misery, I am trying to reach you:
Do you have any recommendation? Is there any doctor in Turkey, if possible in the Trakya region, that can treat obsessions?
Thanks so much for your time,
You can give him/her my office phone number to get an appointment 0.216.3637134. I understand that s/he is Turkish and s/he can make appointment with my secretaries as they don’t speak English. By the way could you please tell me your link with the patient you are referring to?
Best to you and your friend.
Perhaps there might be someone in Edirne who can help the client called Yasemin but I am not sure of her surname. She works in Trakya University as far as I know.

He has an appointment for April with you,but he is very bad right now, so hopeless: The two CBT therapist we visited from September to this month say that he is not ready for therapy? what does that mean? does he have any chance? He is saying that why should even go to another therapist, you, if you will tell him like the other ones, that he is not ready. I would love that someone explained to him, in Turkish, how does his illness work and why is it possible to cure it because he seems not to understand me (i can’t speak Turkish). I have read so much about OCD that i believe it can he healed but he doesn’t, and i understand it after so many failed “therapies”. I really wish someone can do something to alleviate his suffering.
Thanks for your kind response. I called the number for an appointment, but the nearest appointment is for April 10th! wow! I will try to find Yasemin, Thanks so much
Well, he cancelled the appointment. He lost all hopes in doctors. I am about to lose it too… the hopes. Anyway, he is the one that should decide if to believe in doctors. It’s a really horrible illness 🙁
Hocam merhaba benim sizden bir isteğim olacak. Babam Ankara’da oturuyor. Antalya’da bir psikolog bulmuşlar 4 5 senedir şizofreni teşhisi ile ilaç kullanıyordu. Doktor bir ay önce bırak demiş. Şu anda alışveriş çılgınlığı ve çok konuşma gibi huyları peydah oldu. Kısacası sizin görmenizi isterim mümkünse. Yardımcı olabilir misiniz?
Hilmi bey hocamıza web adresinden ulaşamazsınız. Telefonla arayıp randevu almanız doğru olacaktır.
