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 both online and from The Old Rectory Clinic in Yate (Bristol).

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 student wellbeing. 

 For over a decade I have been using creativity as a powerful means of supporting people of all ages, with 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 local services supporting people re-engage with the community via social prescribing schemes. 

I have also worked closely with educational institutions,  arts organisations, museum and library services.  


I became a therapist because at one point in time, therapy changed my life for the better.

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. Sometimes you need non-judgmental, and compassionate support, from someone who isn’t a friend, family member, or colleague. Finding the right therapist, and right type of therapy, can make the world of difference.
