Hi, I'm Alex

I use she/her pronouns 

My name is Alex Ogando (pronounced 'oh-gan-doh') and I am a fully qualified Dramatherapist, who is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. 

I run my own private practice in which I offer online sessions to clients over the age of 18, as well as in-person sessions for pre-teens, adolescents, and adults, from The Old Rectory Clinic in Yate and a second venue in Chipping Sodbury.

​I also work part-time for local services such as Mind and Off The Record, as well as with educational institutions such as Bath Spa University, supporting artists and student wellbeing. 

For over a decade I have been using creativity as a powerful means of supporting people of all ages, who are struggling with ongoing challenges relating to their mental health and wellbeing.

 

In that time, I have worked with a vast array of institutions and organisations such as: Mind, Off The Record, the NHS CAMHS Crisis Intervention Team, 1625 Independent People, Next Link, The National Autistic Society, Milestones Trust, The Salvation Army, Bravo 22 Company, Cardboard Citizens, and numerous other local public health services and initatives.

I feel it is a great honour and privelige to work with people and sit beside them in some of their most vulnerable moments and I do not take that for granted. Integrity, transparency, and care, are three fundamental values that drive the way I work, and my wealth of experience with people underpins who I am and how I work as a therapist. 

I became a therapist because at one point in time, therapy changed my life for the better and I realised things really could be different if I wanted them to be.

 

​Life can be incredibly difficult, regardless of how often we are reminded to be grateful, and look for the silver linings. Regardless of how ‘fine’ our life might appear to other people, or perhaps actually is.

 

Sometimes you need non-judgmental, and compassionate support, from someone who isn’t a friend, family member, or colleague, to help you move through a challenging time.

 

Finding the right therapist, and right type of therapy, can make the world of difference.
