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.

Starting the journey to emotional well-being may seem daunting, but with the help of a kind, professional and deeply empathic therapist alongside you, it can become the most important undertaking you ever begin. Whatever issues you are struggling with right now, change is possible and inevitable as soon as you choose to explore exactly what you need and which parts of your life are not working as well as you hope right now. As a therapist I walk beside my clients and together we can explore exactly what it is you need to help you make the changes necessary to reclaim a full and balanced life.

Hi, I'm Sandra and I help people with high anxiety and low self esteem to feel BETTER! Having one or both of these inter-related conditions can be very frustrating. Perhaps you don't believe you are worthy of happiness, success or love. Low self worth can suck the colour from your life, leaving you feeling empty, disconnected and worthless. You might feel undervalued, lonely and disempowered. It does NOT have to be this way. What if you COULD feel better about who you are? Less anxious and more hopeful about the future? Hypnotherapy could help you to identify and change unhelpful subconscious beliefs and move on - FAST!

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.

"In the heart of difficulty we can find our deepest potential." Are you suffering or feeling blocked in certain areas of your life, somehow know or just hope that things could be different, yet fear opening up to explore that? This is not a sign of failure or weakness – it is simply part of what it means to be human. Living in a body in the world is not easy and we inevitably find ourselves hurt and injured. Counter-intuitively, if we attend to those inner wounds and difficulties we find that some of our deepest gifts and capacities are lying hidden or dormant in those places. That is the secret of the journey of healing in therapy.

We all have times in life when things seem to get on top of us. We may feel confused, anxious or depressed. Sometimes it feels like we are just going round in circles, getting nowhere in particular. Having someone to talk to can lighten the load and this is often easier with someone other than family or friends.

Self-Harming (Cutting) Counsellors
Self-harm (SH) or deliberate self-harm (DSH) is the deliberate infliction of damage to your own body. It includes cutting, burning, scratching, banging or hitting yourself, interfering with wound healing, and the ingestion of toxic substances or objects. While self injury (SI) can look like suicide, it's not; most people who mutilate themselves do it as a way to regulate mood. People who hurt themselves in this way may be motivated by a need to distract themselves from inner turmoil, or to quickly release anxiety that builds due to an inability to express intense emotions.

If you're looking for help with self-harming in Bristol or for someone who self harms, or cuts themselves, or bangs or hits themselves, these Bristol counsellors provide counselling for self harming in Bristol. They include counsellors, who understand self harming in Bristol, psychologists and therapists. They can provide self harming counselling in Bristol or treatment for self harming.

How can I tell if a counsellor is right for me?
