MNCS - Counsellor, Hypnotherapist and EMDR Trauma Therapist

About me

Hi, I’m Sian, a qualified counsellor, psychotherapist, hypnotherapist, EMDR trauma therapist and NLP practitioner based in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire.

A bit about me… After several years of working with domestic and sexual violence victims, I decided to qualify in NLP and hypnotherapy to be able to offer more support to my clients. I started Sian’s Purple Therapy shortly after and gained my qualifications in counselling and EMDR.

It is important to me to continue my learning and improve my skills.  I attend regular CPD courses to further my education.

I enjoy working with clients from all backgrounds. I work with adults and young people (13+) to explore how they are feeling and how we can work together to reach their desired goal. Therapy is not 'one size fits all'.  I will work with you to find the best solutions to reach your goals and improve your life.

Counselling, hypnotherapy, EMDR trauma therapy and NLP can be provided together or separately, depending on your preference. We can discuss this during your first session to enable you to make the decision that’s right for you.

If you are interested in pursuing therapy with me, please get in contact. Call or text 07708 497240, or email You can attend a session in my relaxing therapy room in Aylesbury (see photos below!), or via a telephone/online appointment.

In our first session, I will take some personal details from you and gain an understanding of what has brought you to therapy. This is an opportunity for us both to get to know each other and for you to determine if you are comfortable with me as your therapist.

If you feel comfortable and want to continue your sessions, we will discuss which therapy would suit you best and how often you would benefit from attending sessions. I will then book you in for your next appointment.

You don’t have to suffer in silence. Get in contact today and see how therapy can help improve your life.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am qualified in the following:

  • Diploma in Hypnotherapy and Counselling Skills Dip Hyp CS

As well as my qualifications, I have 13 years' experience in supporting victims of domestic and sexual abuse.
