Gabrielle Oliver MSc. UKCP reg. Psychotherapist, HCPC reg. Art Therapist, MBACP
I am an approachable, experienced psychotherapist and art therapist.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy in a relaxed and safe setting of trust and confidentiality where you are free to talk openly and honestly about the things that are troubling you.
I work with clients who have a range of issues from anxiety. panic and depression to issues around anger management, addictive behaviours, difficult work situations, relationship issues, bereavement, illness and other experiences.
These difficulties may take the form of:
- Anxiety, panic or depression
- Seeing no future
- Unexplained feelings in daily life
- Overwhelming emotions
- Relationships that go wrong
- Repeated patterns of self destructive behaviour
- Situations where others are affected
The therapeutic space ensures that what you say will be treated non-judgementally, and with thoughtful respect, and sensivity.
In counselling I offer you the opportunity to make sense of your experiences, to reflect on your current life, and to consider your thoughts, feelings, behaviours and responses to situations and events that are making you the person you are today.
Gaining a perspective on our lives gives us an awareness and understanding of ourselves from which choices towards change can occur. Sometimes this process is painful and I will support you with this. Sometimes knowing who you are, gives you the compassion, and the freedom to accept yourself and open up a more emotionally healthy future.
Integrative Psychotherapy is a talking therapy that takes account of theories of psychology, therapeutic methods, and current developmental theory.
When words are difficult Art offers a means to access feelings and emotions non-verbally. I work as an art therapist with individuals when specifically requested and also with groups with special needs.
