Are you working hard to hide your feelings? Too many thoughts in your head distracting you. Are you holding people away or at arms length? Do you feel alone while others appear to be getting along ok? Do you feel sad, worried, low or lacking in energy? Maybe you long to have your voice heard, to feel more real and honest with those around you. To not feel a need to put up barriers. Perhaps you want to feel able to trust yourself, have faith in your own judgement and accept or value yourself more.

I won't make assumptions about your reasons for considering therapy, what's led to this, or what things are like for you now (as I believe that everyone's story is unique). Would you like space to make sense of patterns of thoughts; feelings; behaviours; and physiological states, along with the circumstances from which they originate, and presently occur? Are you interested in the idea of carefully experimenting with meaningful change, at a pace which is set by you?

Hello, I'm Jenny, an accredited CBT/REBT therapist based in Bristol. I aim to offer my clients a combination of a compassionate, respectful and non-judgemental space in which to share their experiences and problems, and an approach to therapy that is focused on equipping them to achieve their goals. I'm a big believer in people’s ability to change their own situations and I see my work as being to help my clients see the power and agency they have over how they experience their lives, where many feel stuck, helpless, or like 'victims of circumstance'.

I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor working from home in Bristol. I know how hard it is to take those first steps when looking for a counsellor, trying to decide which counsellor sounds like they will be right for you while not feeling judged or that your concerns are not worthy of talking about. Through working together I can offer you a safe, confident space to explore your thoughts and feelings and talk through any issues you feel you need some help with. I believe it is important to feel listened to so you feel you are being heard. I can offer you this while relating to you on a human level with warmth and empathy.

With over 30 years professional experience as a systemic practitioner, I have worked with people from a range of cultures and backgrounds in the independent, voluntary, private and public sectors. Single consultations, short-term and longer work are all available.

There can come a time in anybody’s life when they feel that some support is required. Sometimes it feels difficult to know who to turn to. Do you feel challenged by life? Are you feeling bewildered about where your current path is taking you? Are you suffering following the loss of a relationship, be it through bereavement or relationship breakdown. Maybe you are struggling at work, home or university? Is life too confusing? Do you want to realise the power of your potential? I am here to offer support while you are working through life’s challenges - support which is confidential, open-minded, non-judgemental and consistent.

Clients of all ages come to me with a range of issues and experiences – family difficulties, loss, anxiety, low mood, trauma … and just as often with more general feelings of unease and isolation that can be hard to pin down with words. Clients often appreciate space to reflect on their identity and their place in the world. One of the greatest privileges in my work is to support families working through past and present hurts to heal relationships, through empathy and authentic communication. I am experienced in working with foster carers and children in care, using an approach informed by Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy (DDP).

You may have tried to find ways of coping with difficult feelings and events but still have not found the satisfaction you seek. If you have an issue that needs resolving, it may help having someone outside the situation. I work with people who want to explore further any sense of feeling stuck, dissatisfied, unhappy or being in repeated patterns. Together we work out what helps or does not so that you can support yourself to feel better and move on. I understand you want to choose the best person for you and I welcome enquiries. I work in Whitchurch, South Bristol, and currently work On-Line or by telephone in the UK.

At some point in life we all need some extra support. A caring and non-judgemental space to feel seen and heard in our experience. Someone to walk alongside us on our journey who is separate from our everyday lives, offering professional guidance & reflection. As a therapist, I aim to offer this in a way that feels congruent and helpful for you. I offer a space for you to process and understand your experience safely. When the world around us can often feel confusing and turbulent, the combination of Psychotherapy and creativity can offer containment, insight and the potential for positive change.

Each professional in Bristol then may specialise in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counselling, or anxiety.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Bristol, or Child Psychologists in Bristol.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Bristol psychologists specialising in EMDR.


What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues.

Finding a psychologist or counsellor who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs.

Can I afford counselling?
Yes. Most counsellors offer reasonable rates or will work on a sliding scale basis. Many accept health insurance. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the counsellor.
