Counselling is for anyone and everyone. You might have a specific thing you want to work on – pain from your past or worries about the future. Or you might have a general sense that something is stuck, that this isn’t quite the life you’d expected. ​Counselling offers the opportunity for us to develop a creative partnership , where we can work together to explore both what is troubling you and your potential in life and to support you to find a sense of freedom to be your true self. Counselling is not an easy option, it can uncover painful feelings, but it can be a step on the way to feeling better and more at peace with yourself.

A welcoming integrative counsellor, I invite you to tell me your story. You might come to counselling through a desire to shape your future, to process experience, to discuss a long-term situation, because of stressful events, or perhaps you have no idea why you feel that there is something wrong. I trained as a counsellor for NHS staff, and I have worked as a volunteer counsellor for Bath Mind. I am ready to listen, to find out what you want from counselling, and to be alongside you while you contemplate changes to your life. I welcome your informal questions over email or telephone call.

You are probably feeling very upset, alone and confused, maybe even ashamed and wondering if counselling could help? Everyone who comes to therapy has a unique set of issues but the underlying need to share the distress and be understood, is true for everyone. If you are struggling with parenting, postnatal depression, miscarriage or your identity as a woman you are not alone. I have lots of experience working with women (and men) who are struggling with family life and want to feel better than they currently do. I also help young people with identity and self esteem issues, self harm, anxiety and sad feelings

There are various circumstances which might bring an individual to counselling. Some people may be aware of the cause of their distress e.g. bereavement or difficulties such as addiction that they would like to address. However others may have a feeling of unease but can't seem to put a finger on what might be wrong in their life. Whatever the reason you have chosen to seek help, I will provide you with a safe and confidential space where you will have the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings and we will work together to make sense of your experiences.

I can help if you are looking for a therapist because you are experiencing distress. This may have started with an event that left you feeling out-of-control; a loved-one dying, a great change happening in your life, or maybe illness striking you or somebody that you care for? Or, the problem may be just the opposite - nothing has happened. You feel stuck and unhappy, and you would like to understand the reasons why and make some changes in your life. Either way, you would like to find greater ease in your life, and right now this feels tough-going on your own.

Integrative Counsellors
Integrative therapy in Bristol refers to therapy in which elements from different types of therapy may be used. Therapists 'integrate' two or more therapeutic styles (e.g. Cognitive and Family Systems) to bring about a personalised and practical approach to healing. These Bristol integrative therapy Counsellors practice an integrative therapy style.

Integrative therapy (with a small 'i') may also refer to the process of 'integrating' the personality by taking disowned or unresolved aspects of the self and making them part of a cohesive personality whole. It reduces the use of defense mechanisms that inhibit spontaneity and allows flexibility in solving emotional problems.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
Counsellors and therapists in Bristol are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, you can find CBT Therapists in Bristol who focus on a specific issue, as well as DBT Therapists in Bristol who help clients with new skills to manage their emotions and relationships.
