Pelin Turgut

Pelin Turgut was a writer for publications such as TIME magazine and The Independent and co-founder of the !F Istanbul International Independent Film Festival before training with The International School of Storytelling in Sussex.


She works with adults of all backgrounds drawing on the healing qualities of fairytale and stories to enable a felt sense of the mythic nature of a life journey. She has a particular interest in the richness of ancestor stories; her own background is Turkish-British and her grandparents came from a vast and varied geography.

She has trained in family constellation work with Svagito Liebermeister for several years and is studying with Daan van Kampenhout, creator of Systemic Ritual. She is a film mentor, storyteller and a facilitator of group workshops that include ritual, stories, meditation and constellation work to allow awareness of the deeper movements of life, and also new possibilities.

She leads groups in the UK and Turkey.
