Sade Olaiya: Qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist

Sade Olaiya:  Qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist

Hello my name is Sade and I am an experienced and qualified Cognitive Behaviour Therapist.If you ignore your feelings they will get your attention in other ways! Are you feeling overwhelmed, struggling and don't know what to do, maybe you're anxious and energy levels are low. I offer a supportive environment to discuss whatever's troubling you. I tailor my counselling approach to each client dependent on the material presented. I'm an advocate for creativity and try to incorporate it into my sessions while helping you work towards your goals. I provide a safe, empathic, non judgemental space with a warmth often associated with the Humanistic Approach. I'm generally easy going and believe the key to any progress within the therapy room is the relationship between the counsellor and client. I specialise in relationship issues, anxiety, depression and bereavement. I truly believe there's strength in vulnerability! I understand the pressures people put on themselves which can lead to unhelpful coping strategies. I find a lot of the clients I work with struggle with boundaries, self- love and finding their voice. Your needs are just as important as anyone else and it's important to live the best version of your life.

Specialist Areas:
  • Stress management
  • Cognitive behaviour therapy
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mindfulness
Accreditations:
  • Life coach

Establishing the brain is a solutionist, which uses the accumulation of past emotional experiences to develop habitual and predictive patterns of behaviour, was the first step in a long journey of discovery from a state of mental illness to wellness, and the creation of my Dominant Thought Pattern technique to resolve the state of psychological suffering induced by anxiety, fear, depression and stress. Subsequent studies into emotional disorders and neuroscience confirmed our core beliefs play an impactful role in the determination between a life or death decision whilst in a state of suffering, and through the expansion of those beliefs we may distance ourselves from a decision for death. Identifying the brain as a solutionist has predetermined my life's work, research and study.

Specialist Areas:
  • Resolving anxiety, depression and stress through Dominant Thought Pattern technique
