About me and my therapy practice

Hello. Welcome, and thank you for considering my support. 

My name is Syl (Sylwia), and I am an experienced liberation practitioner offering integrated counselling and coaching for various 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 initially feel new, 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 I bring many psychological approaches (traditional and more progressive, too), all centred around your wellbeing, safety, choices and empowerment. Your comfort, psychological safety, and preferences are my priorities.

I am a qualified integrated counsellor and coach experienced in supporting people with the following challenges: self-esteem, low mood, anxiety, depression, bereavement, eco-anxiety, workplace and activist burnout, digital wellbeing challenges, technophobia, online abuse, sexual abuse, addictions, stigma, social exclusion and social isolation, identity-based violence and other forms of oppression or discrimination.

I support people healing from complex grief, trauma and PTSD, addictive behaviours, and individual relationship challenges such as neglect and abuse (please note: I am not a couples therapist). 

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-minute online consultation and discuss how I can assist you. 

Practice description

As a liberation practitioner, I am trained in many approaches to offer a way of working that empowers you and suits your needs. I can help you find the right therapeutic approach.

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 our lives 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 am passionate about good digital wellbeing. 

I am a certified Virtual Reality counsellor and a founder of a digital wellbeing startup, Voxel Hub. I am a certified and licensed Geek Therapist. 

I combine my experience in teaching, business, charity work, digital activism, and youth projects to offer an affirming view of good mental health in the digital age. I support people struggling with negative tech bias, technophobia, digital fatigue, online abuse, geek discrimination, and 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 settings online, via telephone, in person and in Nature. I deliver CPD courses for Iron Mill College of Counselling in Exeter. I'm a member and follow the ethical guidelines of the BACP (counselling), Institute of Leadership and Management and EMMC Global (coaching).

Like all ethical practitioners, I am in ongoing personal (liberation) therapy and have an experienced (somatic) supervisor.

Contact me to book a free 30-minute online consultation or ask any questions. 

My first session

The initial free 30-minute 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. 

I am here to support you.
