About Olesya

About Olesya
 – Hi, I am Olesya, a psychologist (MSc, PhD). I am mostly specialised in integrative body-oriented approaches. 

I have been active in the psychology field, therapy and group facilitation for 15 years. I have been lucky enough to work independently and to contribute to teams of a trauma clinic and a luxury rehab.

Areas of expertise

Many of the changes we seek to bring about in our professional and personal lives often seem beyond our conscious control. We may be aware of what needs changing, but often we do not know how to tackle the problems. Somatic therapy emphasizes that our being and deep behaviour patterns are held in the body. Thus, experiential work with movements, proprioception and interception can enhance verbal processing between client and therapist. This non-verbal part of body-oriented therapy allows the transformation of unconscious psychological patterns that were blocked, forgotten, or never integrated. The somatic approach goes beyond cognitive processing. It focuses on posture, movement, breathing, intention, and embodied self-awareness. It allows accessing unconscious resources and support in overcoming challenges.

Therefore, you may come to see me because past events marked your relationships with yourself and the world. Or your present life triggers difficult emotional reactions which pose interpersonal or professional challenges. Or simply because you want to improve your well-being and get out of life more than you currently do. I have experience resolving persistent mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, OCD, intrusive thoughts, anger management, self-harming, dissociation, difficulties with emotional regulation and addiction.

To conclude, with mixed ethnic heritage and varied expatriate experience, I consider the specific impact of multicultural, intergenerational and social factors on people’s lives. I feel comfortable working with issues of diversity, shame, and identity. My therapeutic stance is relational and experiential, offering a space for transformation and healing. I provide consultations in three languages: English, Russian, and Italian.

Every thought, feeling, and sensation within your body throughout the day offer you an opportunity to love. Good or bad, whatever you experience is a lesson or a reminder to connect with love.
