Lenora Olivier-Lovett. M.A. MBACP(Accred.), PG. DIP., CBT-IAPT, BABCP (Accred).
Find your life when you explore it and discover your own internal stability.
I am a Relational Integrative Counsellor and a registered accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP Accred.). I am passionate about the work I do and I have an M.A. in my theoretical approach which integrates ideas shared in Humanistic, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapies (C.B.T).
The focus of this form of therapy links your past experiences, your present situation and how this may impact on your future, as well as linking your personal meaning to generate insight into your situation. As such, at every stage my aim is that we work together to influence a personal future that is useful and helpful to you. I believe that your experiences and perceptions are unique and significant. Therefore, I work from a position where I guard against making assumptions about you or your issues by remaining curious and attentive, while always checking your meaning rather than imposing mine. In the neutral space I provide, all that you express is valued and respected.
I offer both brief and long term therapy, but at a pace that is most helpful to you; you are always in control (Please note, change can be challenging, and often brings sadness and confusion before perceived benefits are experienced).
Equally, I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Evidence-Based Psychological Therapies for Children, Young People and Families (Children and Young People, Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CYP-IAPT-CBT), and I am an accredited member with the BABCP in this area of work. As such, I can provide specific evidence-based interventions for young people and their families with presentations of anxiety and depression.
I am also a qualified IAPT Supervisor in High and Low Intensity CBT and can work with supervisees who desire to sustain the IAPT protocol and principles. In addition, I can work with supervisees who would like external support with their counselling or general CBT therapeutic interventions.
Currently I work out off Monmouth in Wales and Newent in Gloucestershire.
For more about me and my profile, please check out my website or visit me on LinkedIn. You can then call me to arrange a confidential initial meeting. You would be charged for the first session, but you are not then obligated to commit to future sessions unless you wish to do so. In our initial meeting we shall discuss your situation and you can also discern if I am the best person to work with you. It is very important for you to test out if you can work with me. We cannot ignore the fact that a good working alliance is crucial to what we can achieve together.
