My Approach

I help those with trauma, dissociation or chronic conditions in order to move on with their life. Now doesn’t need to mean forever.
I am a trauma psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor. I tutor online counselling and supervision.

About Me

My name is Olivia Djouadi and I work with adults as an online integrative psychotherapist and counsellor. Due to training in a variety of places I have gained skills that will help clients in finding paths that will be useful towards healing.

I am a UKCP psychotherapist having trained at Birkbeck, CAPP (The John Bowlby Centre), Online Training Ltd and Regents University London. I have also taken courses in trauma and dissociative disorders with experts in the field within the UK. I continue to update my knowledge yearly with both experiential and academic courses. I also learn from the experience of life.

Over the years, I have worked online as a support person to those with special needs and also those with dissociative disorders. In the past I volunteered with refugees and those who found themselves homeless in London. In recent years I worked with special needs children and assisted their parents. I am knowledgeable about short term and long term disabilities. I have also been a type 1 diabetic for almost 50 years so some of my knowledge comes from experience.

I have also taken courses in trauma, psychopathology, integrative therapy, journal therapy, online counselling and humanistic therapy. I continue to update my knowledge on a yearly bases so I can be helpful to those I assist. You can see my education and skills here.

I have worked as a psychotherapist in private practice for over a decade and as a volunteer for RAFA.

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I work with trauma and have specialised training in dissociation. I can also give the SCID-D and DES to diagnose dissociative disorders. I have studied and worked in the area of trauma since 2007 and before that worked at refugee centres in London and Bromley. As someone familiar with disability I also worked as a key-worker at a special needs nursery for kids from 0 to when they started school. Presently Im not trained to work with children but in the past helped their parents with some of the stress that developed. I have also volunteered in a care unit with those that had severe dementia and sometimes needed emotional support for past trauma that came up. I have also worked with Veterans from the RAF for some years now. Trauma covers a wide range of topics and can occur before birth, during birth, during the preschool years, school years and anytime during the adult years. Some people may have one trauma they wish to work on and others have numerous incidents of harm that occurred. Sometimes the trauma can occur after seeing parents fight or abuse at home. You might of lived in a safe home but going outdoors was fraught with possibilities you had no control over. Circumstances can also cause unexpected adversities such as suddenly moving house or even to a new country. Health can also be a source of unease either from growing up with a caregiver that had an illness or having a diagnoses you weren't expecting. A new condition can either slide into family life or course a shift so their is an adjustment for everyone in the household. Reaction to family changes are normal and it can help to have someone with you that understands. I work with Stress, trauma, PTSD, Complex PTSD, dissociation, derealism, depersonalisation, Dissociative Identity Disorder DID also known as multiplicity and polyfragmented DID
