Isabelita Oliveira BSc (Hons), MSc, MA, PgDip, MBACP, COSRT
Hello and Welcome.
Please note, due to COVID19, all sessions are being carried out online until government guidelines change.
My name is Isabelita Oliveira. I am a fully qualified and experienced integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I provide professional and confidential counselling to individuals, couples and families. I specialise in Relationship Counselling and Sexual Therapy.
My initial training was as an Occupational Psychologist and in addition to my couple work I have a lot of experience working with work relationships and self-esteem as well as on impact of stress, anxiety and depression on individual's well-being.
At times in our lives we can experience life being very challenging and difficult. We can become stuck in patterns of behaviours and thoughts that are no longer helpful and these patterns can hinder our personal, relational and professional growth. At times like this psychotherapy can provide a calm, warm, non-judgemental and confidential space to explore your difficulties whatever they might be.
I offer both short-term and long-term therapy. The duration of therapy depends on a client's needs and concerns and is discussed at the initial session.
Issues people bring to counselling include
- I feel overwhelmed
- I can't cope with the pressure at work
- I feel anxious all the time
- Home issues are impacting on my work
- Work is impacting on my relationship
- I feel lonely in my relationship
- I can't form relationships
- We have drifted apart
- We are not having sex
- I can’t stop watching porn and it is impacting on my relationship/work
