One-to-One Counselling

I work from a few venues.  One is Bristol Talking Therapies rooms, it is a light, airy space furnished to provide a tranquil, therapeutic space.  There is paid-for parking available just opposite, however its central location means that it is accessible using the bus or train.  There are bike racks beside Redcliffe Cathedral.  I am on the top floor (there is no lift unfortunately).  I currently have space available on a Monday morning and evening.  I also work from a lovely room in Orchard Street right in the city centre, and sometimes at Eastern Yoga in Greenbank.

When we meet we will discuss how many sessions we might work together for.  There are various factors which influence this decision, not least how affordable it is for you.  I am experienced in both short term and long term work.  We can also work on an open-ended basis with regular reviews built in to the process to check in on how the work is progressing.   

If counselling is new for you it can feel quite daunting, even making the initial contact can induce anxiety.  I will do my best to put you at ease, the assessment session is a full 50 minutes so that there is no rush and we can go at your pace.  Both initially and in subsequent sessions, I will listen to what you need.  Sometimes you may need a few minutes of quiet in the room to settle and think about what you would like to talk about, or a guided breathing or visualisation exercise can be helpful.

I take a whole-life approach and will sometimes explore the impact of sleeping patterns, physical wellbeing, health conditions, how we use technology and food/eating. My approach is always open-minded, curious and mindful of your needs, limits and resources.  I also keep in mind our wider context, how the messages and pressures from society effect us and how we can thrive within that as individuals and collectively.  Part of this may be thinking about our environment, the living world and how connected we are to nature.
