About me and my therapy practice
Hello. Welcome and thank you for considering my support. My name is Sylwia, and I am an experienced liberation practitioner offering integrated counselling and coaching for a wide range of life challenges.
Our life experiences, our social positioning and our current experience of the world can sometimes feel challenging. That's where counselling and coaching can help. Starting counselling or coaching can feel new at first, so my role is to create a calm space for you to feel comfortable, respected, and empowered to be your authentic self.
Liberation work means that I bring in a wide range of psychological approaches centred around your safety, choices and empowerment. Your comfort, psychological safety and preferences are my priority.
I am a qualified integrated counsellor and coach experienced in supporting people with the following challenges:
- relationship difficulties,
- self esteem,
- low mood,
- workplace and activist burnout,
- digital wellbeing challenges,
- online abuse,
- sexual abuse,
- stigma, social exclusion and social isolation,
- identity-based violence and other forms of oppression or discrimination.
I am a certified anti-oppressive practitioner. Whether this is your first experience with this type of support or the next step on your healing journey, I will privilege your preferences. As an inclusive practitioner, I respect all aspects of your identity.
Thank you for reading and taking this first step to seek support for your mental health and wellbeing.
Contact me to book a free 30 min online consultation and discuss how I can assist you.
As a liberation practitioner, I am trained in many approaches to offer you a way of working that empowers you and suits your needs.
In our sessions, we can explore and make meaning from your experience of the world through a safe, trusted, non-judgmental conversation.
We can create a calm, trusted space for your healing.
We can identify the roots of your challenges and find ways to move forward.
We can reflect on oppression and misuse of power in your life and identify safe and sustainable ways to resist it.
Together, we can identify opportunities for healing - some can be practical, and others may require deeper psychological exploration.
Finally, we can also explore liberation towards a healthier, happier life.
Additionally, I also specialise in counselling and coaching for digital wellbeing. I am a certified Virtual Reality counsellor and a founder of a digital wellbeing startup, Voxel Hub. I combine the experience of teaching, business, charity work, digital activism and youth projects to offer you an affirming view of good mental health in the digital age. I support people struggling with:
- negative tech bias,
- digital fatigue,
- online abuse,
- geek discrimination,
- addictive online behaviours.
I work with leaders, professionals, parents and mental health practitioners wishing to embrace digital age opportunities safely.
I worked for leading local and national counselling charities in one to one and group setting online, via telephone, in person and in Nature. I delivered a course on liberation psychologies for Iron Mill College of Counselling in Exeter. I'm a member and follow the ethical guidelines of the BACP, Institute of Leadership and Management and EMMC Global.
Like all ethical practitioners, I have been in ongoing personal therapy for many years and have an experienced supervisor.

My first session
The initial free 30 min online consultation session offers a non-committal space for you to decide how we could work together.
We can discuss the following:
- your challenges, needs and preferences so that I can support you effectively,
- general get to know each other - you can explore if you want my support and ask me any questions,
- contract details - regularity, length, cost of sessions, cancellations, and holidays, technical requirements for online work,
- starting date of your counselling/coaching.
Please note: it is natural to experience a certain level of anxiety before this first session. I recommend joining it and sharing your concerns so I can respond and support you. However, if you feel that working with me is not the right fit, I will do my best to advise how to find more support elsewhere.
Feel free to contact me to book this initial consultation or ask any questions.
