Olya SergeevaIntegrative psychotherapist
Thank your for visiting my therapy page. My name is Olya and I am a qualified psychotherapist. I welcome you to my online therapy practice.
I am licensed in the UK with 9 years of professional work experience. I have been helping and supporting clients to cope with addictions, relationship issues, trauma and abuse, & to process grief and loss and past unresolved issues. I believe that you are the expert of your story and that you have many strengths that will assist you in overcoming things that challenge you. Taking the steps to seeking a more fulfilling and happier life takes courage. I am here to support you in that process.
Are you here because you are in pain? I want to help and support you, providing a safe confidential space where you can talk and be as you are now. No need to hide, nor to pretend. I am available to listen to you for as long as you need me to. My patient, empathic understanding and active listening and reflective skills have no limits, because I trust I listen with my heart and soul to your heart and soul and pain.
please tell me what troubles and worries you? I am here to listen with attention and to understand deeply. Then I will reflect what you have shared with me. Sometimes by having your worries, pain and troubles recounted, mirrored and reflected back to you can bring some relief, clarity and insights because they are heard, recognised and acknowledged.
If not, I will ask you some clarifying questions to reflect further. I will stay attune with you, so any difficulty and pain you may be experiencing during a therapy session or in life, is shared with me, hopefully you may feel that you are not on your own. That is not a small thing. This can be comforting, nurturing and therefore healing.
Quite often a therapist takes a role of a mother/father, and helps a client’s inner child to be seen, heard and understood. This is called reparenting. The therapist is mothering an inner child of a client so eventually the client themselves can acquire the skill of mothering and mother themselves in life when they feel ignored, neglected and malnourished in life and there is no one to turned to only inwards.
I have been seeing clients one-to-one since the beginning of my training for 9 years. I am familiar with some of the 12 step programs such as AA - alcoholic anonymous, SLAA - sex and love addiction anonymous, ACA - adult child of an alcoholic and dysfunctional families, DA - debtor anonymous, OA - overeater anonymous.
My therapeutic approach is integrative transpersonal based on trauma. I can help with emotional trauma, depression, abandonment, neglect, unprocessed grief, suicidal thinking, numbing with sleep, sex, food, alcohol, any form of escape.
The Integrative approach includes:
Psychodynamic: childhood, the formation of a sense of self, an ego strength, family dynamics, unconscious.
Existential: 4 Existential givens of life: death, loneliness, responsibility and meaning.
Humanistic: authentic/ true/ false self, completing Gestalt of unresolved, repressed issues.
Transpersonal: soul, spirit, beyond personality and ego, dreams, potential without limitations, archetypes.
Talking pains out prevents acting them out.
At your pace, in a safe, stable, sensitive and warm manner I will listen to all your stories and pain as much as you need me to. You are welcome to repeat it, again and again, so you can hear yourself and be heard by another (me) to process and integrate what was silenced, repressed and denied in you and as a result numbed out as an attempt to protect yourself from pain and hurt.
The most important part in healing is to feel again and that could be difficult without help. My role as a psychotherapist will be to support you by containing and holding you through it all safely. I promise you that I will do that. I am very patient, grounded and stable. Please get in touch. I would be very glad to meet and get to know you. Thank you for reading.
