Lynn Ramsson

Lynn Ramsson

Lynn Ramsson MBACP (Accred) she/her

Lynn’s approach to therapy is integrative, which means that she draws from various theories and therapeutic ideas when working with her clients. The integrative approach also allows her to build on her foundation training in humanistic therapy and meet each individual’s needs in a specific and supportive way. She works with adults of all ages and offers a safe, non-judgmental, confidential space in which clients can talk openly and develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships.

By paying close attention to the language her clients use to tell their stories, Lynn encourages a shared process that enables her clients to gain insight into their motives, their patterns of behaviour and communication, and their contributions to various relationship dynamics. Lynn also understands how a sense of ‘otherness’ can influence life experiences and seeks to acknowledge the importance of intersectionality, diversity and identity both inside the therapy room and beyond.

Holly Roberts

Holly Roberts MBACP

Holly is a Relate-trained couples counsellor with extensive experience in helping people in all types of relationships navigate relational issues. For example, these problems could be communication difficulties, where she helps clients learn how to actively listen to their partners and understand what it means to feel heard.

She offers a space where you can work practically to help improve communication quickly, which eases the tension and reduces arguments. This then enables more emotional conversations to be possible, tackling issues together that haven’t been possible on your own.

Common issues that Holly works with are:  communication breakdowns, affairs, excessive arguing, becoming new parents, long term relationship apathy, consensual non-monogamy, relationship breakdowns and endings. Holly sees both couples and individuals with relationship issues.

Vivian Leong

Vivian Leong COSRT

Vivian is a psychosexual and relationship therapist who sees individuals and couples. She works with relationship issues such as arguments, communication problems, infidelity, separation and navigating non-monogamous relationships. She also specialises in sexual issues such as problems with penetration or consummation, erectile and ejaculation difficulties, low libido and differences in desire, and sexually addictive behaviours. These issues are often seen alongside struggles with anxiety, depression and trauma, which Vivian is experienced in working with.

She is passionate about working with couples and it can be valuable for these clients to have an experienced third person in the room to mediate and guide conversations that are too difficult to have alone or that have become charged over time.

In the therapy room, Vivian supports couples and individuals to gain a better understanding of themselves and each other, and helps clients develop the intrinsic skills that can enable them to navigate their relationships and lives more fluidly.

Your questions answered

Starting therapy can feel confusing. We have put together some commonly-asked questions about counselling, along with our answers.

Frequently-asked questions

"I learned a lot about myself and about the relationships I make with other people. I was able to see where I was going wrong and I now make better personal choices. Thank you, again."

"I was able to confront many issues which I had so far chosen to ignore despite their negative effects on my personal relationships and happiness. I would have no hesitation in recommending (One Therapy) to anyone looking to improve their relationships and self-esteem."

My therapist was completely non-judgemental which allowed me to be totally honest in the sessions and say how I was feeling without reservation. I felt comfortable talking with him and it was a really valuable experience that I would thoroughly recommend.

Therapy helped me through a difficult time. I gained so much insight into myself and my life. My first experience of therapy was excellent. I am so grateful to One Therapy for this.
