Hi, I'm Sandra. I help women with chronic anxiety to feel better quickly. Anxiety can suck the colour from your life, leaving you feeling empty, fearful and trapped. You might also be feeling lonely and unfulfilled, unable to see a way forward. But what if there was a way? A way that helps you move toward a more positive and hopeful future? Hypnotherapy can change stubborn and unhelpful beliefs such as believing you aren't good enough, not confident enough or not deserving enough. Imagine how different your life would be if you DID believe you were enough, and that you could cope with anything at all? Don't wait....
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor offering counselling to individuals in the Bristol area. I have experience of working with anxiety, depression, low confidence/self esteem, relationship issues, bereavement and domestic abuse. Through offering a safe, confidential space and building a trusting relationship, I will work with you to help you gain an understanding of yourself and how you experience life, allowing you to gain self awareness and clarity. Counselling gives you a chance to pause from the chaotic world, reflect and be heard, this may be a rare opportunity and can help gain insight and compassion for yourself.
Are you feeling overwhelmed, afraid, stuck, anxious, unheard? Counselling can help us to deal with experiences such as difficult family relationships or friendships, trauma, bereavement, and long term illness, and to process emotions such as anxiety, stress, fear, anger and guilt. I work in a non-judgmental way and provide support for a range of situations and mental health issues. If integrative counselling suits you, my special interests are recovery from abusive family relationships and managing long-term illness. I can help with anxiety, self-esteem, depression, abuse, suicidal thoughts, bereavement, carers' issues & catfishing.
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.
Do you feel you have issues in your life that are hard to understand or explain? Do you feel like you are struggling with trauma or PTSD? How would you like to be able to peel back the covers of your problems, find the causes and put them right? Whilst therapy isn't quite as easy as that, with care and really strong support you may be suprised at how much change is possible!

You maybe seeking support/help when things have become tough, difficult, or overwhelming that could be having an impact on health, mental health, on work, family, partner or affecting other relationships.

I am a compassionate, warm and approachable therapist and we will work together in a collaborative way to find what works best for you
It’s when you sense, or realise, that things can’t remain the same and yet you feel frozen, unable to act, and you don’t know what to do. A personal crisis might leave you feeling powerless and anxious. Then you find that the ways in which you generally deal with problems aren’t working: the people you’d usually turn to for support aren’t enough, they might be too involved with the issues you’re facing. You might also feel unwell. It’s not uncommon to feel anxious, depressed or emotionally fragile. This is when counselling can help. I offer Face to Face, Walk and Talk, Online and Telephone Counselling.
You are welcome to bring a wide variety of life stories and events into or time together . I hear and work with adults who have difficult childhood experiences, complex issues, traumas, and behaviours which cause them distress. I have worked with addictions, eating disorders and OCD. I work with couples and relationships. It is a supportive space which helps to clarify the problems and reduces the anxiety and depression. . I work via a Cliniko video system for medical and counselling services, Whatsapp video, Skype, telephone and via text or e-mails
We all experience difficulties at one time or another. It could be that our relationships aren’t all we'd like them to be. Or perhaps we feel anxious, depressed, lonely, or we’re grieving a loss. Perhaps we behave in ways that we'd rather not, or that we don't understand. Or maybe life has lost its meaning, we've lost our sense of direction, feel stuck, or just don't know who we are any more. Counselling offers a safe, confidential space in which to explore such issues in relationship with someone who is skilled, non-judgemental, and really there for you. A space in which to come to terms with things, and allow them to change.
