Olivia Feehan, BAHCP
Holistic & Integrative
Counselling & Psychotherapy

About.

I'm Olivia, a counsellor and psychotherapist, and also a human who feels grateful to witness others in their journey.

It is human to feel depressed, anxious and stressed. It is human to struggle with your self-esteem, self-worth and body image. It is human to grieve after a loss or bereavement in your life. And just like the human experience, nothing is permanent, not even your biggest struggles. Through holistic and integrative approaches, I will support you in creating more compassion for yourself, understanding the stressors and challenges in your life and making more space for joy and presence.

My Approach

I practice as a holistic and integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.

This simply means I believe the mind-body-spirit connection is fundamental in understanding yourself as a whole person. I draw from several theories of practice, as what suits one person won’t suit another. However, at the core of them all is the importance of the therapeutic relationship; connection, a safe space and supporting you to feel seen and heard.

What therapy with me looks like.

Being human can be hard, wonderful and complicated. I invite you to show up as you are: anxious, depressed, lost, curious, grieving, heartbroken, unsure, frustrated, excited… and it is my job to hold a safe and non-judgemental space. When working together you will be met with empathy and compassion. Laughter, tears and silence are natural parts of your therapy journey. Wherever you are on your journey, I will meet you there, we will go at your pace and in the direction you want.

Do you have the disease to please?

Being a people pleaser probably means that you are good intentioned, caring and want everyone to be happy. However, pleasing everyone all the time can lead to emotional fatigue, sense of self issues and not authentically living your life for you.  Signs that you may be a people pleaser: – You...

What to do In Therapy

All you need to do is be there.

When you come to therapy you may know what challenge(s) or issue(s) that you need/want to bring, or you may not – that is also okay. It may be that you have a feeling something is off balance in your life or you want to give yourself this time to get explore more about yourself. There is no criteria for coming to therapy. Attending your first therapy appointment can be daunting and I am here to support you and answer any questions you may have

In my practice, I work with individuals of all genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and spiritual beliefs.
