RHIANNA BLACKWELL

Co-Founder 
Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist

Hi my name is Rhianna, and I’m one of the founders of The Online Therapy Room. I value a compassionate and warm approach within sessions, and aim to create an environment where you will feel calm and at ease. Collaboration is very important to me, and I endeavour to make sure that your individual goals are at the centre of the work we do together. 


I have a special interest in working with low self-esteem, trauma and parents who are experiencing mental health difficulties during the perinatal period. Due to these interests I have been an active member of the perinatal team within my NHS role, and have attended further training to enable me to provide specialised support. 


I’m a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and currently work as a Senior CBT Therapist within a busy NHS service. I have been working in the field of mental health for 13 years, including 10 years in the NHS and 2 years in private practice.

I have significant experience and skill in working with clients experiencing depression, generalised anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, health anxiety, social phobia, panic disorder, specific phobias, agoraphobia, body dysmorphic disorder, habit disorders, PTSD and low self-esteem. 

I am able to offer Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

MONICA DINIS

Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist

Hello! My name is Monica and I am one of the therapists of The Online Therapy Room. I place great importance in building a genuine therapeutic relationship with my clients in order to develop a sense of safeness, feelings of trust and mutual respect within sessions. The key features within my sessions include kindness, courage and empathy,  which is completed through a series of CBT and compassion-focused therapy skills. I value a person-centred approach and believe in working as a team in order to meet your needs and expectations. This all supports the journey of reclaiming your life in addition to maintaining a healthy and balanced wellbeing.

Therapy is a personal and unique crossing of self-awareness and self-mastery. I believe in empowering and motivating my clients to purposefully connect with themselves in order to make intentional (and beneficial) changes to their lives, therefore allowing this opportunity to lessen their suffering and mental health difficulties.  


I am a BABCP accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist and currently work as a Senior CBT therapist within the NHS. I have worked in both Children's and Adult Mental Health during my 2 years of training as a therapist. I have been working within the realm of mental health for 9 years, but presently working with adults for 5 years in NHS Talking Therapies.

I have experience in working with presentations such as depression and anxiety disorders; this includes generalised anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, health anxiety, social phobia, panic disorder, specific phobias and agoraphobia. I am also adept in working with body dysmorphic disorder, habit disorders, PTSD, Childhood and Adult Trauma and low self-esteem.
