My name is Abiola Muhammed-Ogunfowora. I am a qualified Counselling Psychologist. I completed a Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology at Trinity College Dublin. I attended the University College of Dublin for my Masters in Psychological Sciences and Bachelor in Psychology.
As a counselling psychologist, my training is grounded in a client-centered approach. For me, this means offering an empowering professional relationship by incorporating best practices as well as respecting my clients’ needs and values. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and the client is central to the therapeutic process and I focus on the development of a meaningful therapeutic alliance.
As my client's needs are at the center of my approach, I use an integrated approach, combining different therapeutic modalities. My approach takes into consideration issues of diversity such as race, gender, disability, age, religion, sexuality, etc. I have experience working with a wide range of mental health difficulties, this includes anxiety, depression, loss, trauma, and self-esteem issues. I work primarily with adolescents, adults, and couples. I value individual differences, honesty, integrity, and the importance of finding your own path. I strongly believe people can be empowered to find their own answers.
Competent in carrying out psychological assessments, conceptualising, and implementing evidence-based psychological therapies across various modalities. These modalities include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Short Term Psychodynamic Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Humanistic and Integrative Therapy.
Developing meaningful and authentic therapeutic relationships with clients characterised by trust, respect, and integrity.
Providing culturally appropriate therapy that takes into consideration the phenomenological experience of the whole person.
