Oliver O'DonohoeIntegrative counsellor
The possibility for healing and growth lies within; my job is to guide you there at a pace that suits. Building the trust to be seen for who we are, without fear of abandonment or rejection can be the most powerful of therapeutic experiences. Qualities I bring into the therapy room include kindness, curiosity, respect, humour and compassion.
Issues I can work with include: abuse, addiction, anger, assault, anxiety, avoidance, bereavement, criminality, depression, eating issues, existential crisis, exploitation, gender identity, ill health, isolation, life-on-street aka 'gangs', relationships, sex and sexuality, shame, social issues, stress, trauma.
As an integrative therapist, I draw on a multitude of approaches, depending on what best suits the needs of the client. I might use the therapeutic relationship to safely explore or 'test' potentially new or healthier ways of being-in-relationship. I may invite the client into their ever-present experience of bodily feelings and sensations, which can nurture autonomy and capacity for self-reflection and awareness.
Asking for help takes courage and can be the first step on firm ground when things just don't feel right anymore. Therapy can be a place where you get to share that stuff you may not feel safe taking anywhere else. The weight of life can be gently lifted and a positive transformation can occur.
