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.

I understand the fear, the misery and the obsession that can take over when you are controlled by food – when your self-worth becomes defined by what you did or didn't eat today. Binge eating is a complex problem because it can be driven by psychological, emotional, biological and social factors. Sometimes it might like you are acting against your own will when it comes to your eating. My stance is a hopeful one, I do believe it is possible to transform your relationship with food.

If you are interested in counselling sessions outdoors, then you may find talkwalkrun works for you. It can take the form of 'walk and talk' or, for those who would like to include some running, that is also an option. As a qualified counsellor I love combining being outside and moving with enabling people to find a way through difficulties in life. My counselling approach is an integrative one, although I place an emphasis on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). In particular I incorporate ideas from the most recent model which has been shown to have rapid and long-lasting impact for people suffering with anxiety or depression.

Mindfulness-Based (MBCT) Counsellors
For clients in Bristol with chronic pain, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and other health issues such as anxiety and depression, mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, or MBCT, is a two-part therapy that aims to reduce stress, manage pain, and embrace the freedom to respond to situations by choice. MCBT blends two disciplines--cognitive therapy and mindfulness. Mindfulness helps by reflecting on moments and thoughts without passing judgment. MBCT clients pay close attention to their feelings to reach an objective mindset, thus viewing and combating life's unpleasant occurrences.

Mindfulness Based counsellors in Bristol can help with issues like anxiety and depression in their role as Bristol MBCT counsellors.
