Individual and Couples / Marriage Counsellor
Olena Baeva (MA, MBACP) is a counselling psychologist specialising in individual and couples therapy.
As a practitioner, she is warm, compassionate and diversity affirming, allowing for all the qualities and unexplored aspects of her clients to emerge and be validated.
Olena has trained with Relate in couple and relationship counselling.
She developed an early interest in physics and maths, studied psychology and business administration as an undergraduate. Later, she studied creativity and innovation in children through to adulthood for her Master’s degree, continuing her academic focus into relationship counselling and autism.
Most of her work is with people dealing with trauma, life changes and relationship issues.
Olena has a strong interest in helping those who are themselves autistic or a partner of an autistic/neurodivergent person.
She has extensive academic training in various therapeutic modalities and tailors her approach to each individual. Through her experience with a vast array of individuals she has developed her ethos with one important lesson among many; as the psychoanalyst Harry Stack Sullivan said, “We are all more human than otherwise.”
Olena can also offer counselling in Russian.
