Working integratively, Bola Ogundeji can use different approaches depending on the needs of her clients. She believes that no two people are the same, and everyone responds to difficulties in uniquely different ways. Therefore she carefully and sensitively works with individuals and couples to determine which approach(es) may be most suitable for them.
In spite of us living in the 21st Century, People struggle to talk frankly about their sexual lives and relationships. Although difficulties arising from sex and relationships are much more prevalent than most people think, many are still unable to share their struggles with others. Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy with Bola, therefore, offers a unique and confidential space to have those conversations, which means clients can reach out for support in these areas. Besides, Bola’s background lends a unique perspective to her work as a therapist. Having been raised in a Black African family with strong faith values, she has first-hand experience and understanding in dealing with cultural and religious barriers to therapy, especially psychosexual and relationship therapy.
She balances her role as an HR Consultant alongside her therapeutic work. With over ten years’ experience in managing people, and managing complex organisational changes, she understands the effects of life, relationship and work transitions on people. She has an interest in and experience with working with difficult family and intimate relationships, psychosexual issues, couples, as well as workplace issues.
Having completed her psychotherapy training, Bola is completing a Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy, including registration with the BACP.
