The Practice Rooms
7a Catherine Street
Hello, my name is Philip Rowe and people come to see me to enhance various aspects of their life. I am a fully qualified, registered and insured integrative psychotherapist, addiction specialist and clinical supervisor, who believes in weaving these practices together with a transpersonal approach.
What I bring - in short
I have worked therapeutically for over 15 years and seen clients from various cultural backgrounds, differing ethnic origins, religious and spiritual beliefs. I have worked in a broad range of therapeutic and clinical settings, and you can rest assured that I will bring this experience with me to treat you non-judgementally, and with the utmost respect and confidentiality that will underpin our work together.
Counselling, psychotherapy and supervision represent personal and professional investments that will enable you to optimise the quality of your life, and help you achieve your desired outcome. I want to help you to obtain this and have a better overall quality of life and wellbeing.
Having over 15 years counselling and psychotherapy experience has got me recognised to be an approved practitioner by the Professional Standards Agency and referred on to the accreditation register by the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists.
My approach in short
Being an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist allows me to develop a therapeutic approach to meet your needs. Through many years experience I have adopted this approach as I believe "one shoe does not fit all" and with influences of the transpersonal model “psychology of the soul” will invite you (if you choose) to explore deeper spiritual aspects of your self.
Symptoms I deal with
I have over 15 years experience treating people in the following areas:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Bereavement and Loss
- Childhood Traumas
- Eating Disorders
- Low Self Esteem and Confidence Building
- Personal and Professional Development
- Relationship Issues
- Self Harm
- Sexual Issues
- Spiritual Trauma
The Professional Relationship
Regardless of the therapeutic approach it is highly important for you to choose the right therapist, as the key component for your treatment lays within the therapeutic relationship. I therefore ask you to have a good look at my profile to gain an impression to see if I am going to be the right therapist for you. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
A little bit about me
Through my own personal challenges and with the fantastic help gained from counselling and psychotherapy I soon found a passion in this career. This led me to train as a counsellor in 1998 to help others (as I was helped). Initially I was trained in addiction group psychotherapy which followed on to train in one to one counselling. By 2008 I became the founder and manager of Through and Beyond Counselling Services. My professionalism become recognised and I was commissioned as a lead counsellor and head supervisor for an addiction treatment rehab in Bristol. I since gained further contracts both within the public and the private sectors, in various counties of the UK
