Profile

Olivia Longe is a psychotherapist working with City Therapy and her approach to therapy is integrative and humanistic. This in effect means that she merges the styles from many different schools of psychotherapy into one that best suits the needs of each individual. Olivia works with many different issues that clients bring, such as feelings of anxiety, panic and/or stress, depression, bereavement, relationship problems and personal development.

Before training as a psychotherapist Olivia lectured in Cognitive Neuroscience and was also an RCUK Research Fellow, where she carried out research on how the brain processes emotions. Having a strong background in how the brain works during emotions, enables her to help in particular stressed/anxious clients to understand what is happening when they are feeling overly stressed and what relaxation techniques can be of great benefit.
