Christopher Stanley - Confidential, experienced Therapy



About me

I offer humanistic psychotherapy and counselling in the very centre of Bristol, in an environment and relationship which offers safety, challenge, connection and support. It is my belief and experience that, difficult as life may be at times, therapy can bring about lasting change and resolution in our lives, offering satisfaction and fulfilment. Sessions consist of conversations and exercises designed to equip clients with increased resources to bring about desired change in their own lives. I bring to my practice thirty years experience of psychotherapy and thirty-five years experience of teaching Drama in universities - I see much similarity in the two fields.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been involved in psychotherapy work since 1979, spending thousands of hours on courses, in individual, group, facilitating, training and counselling situations. I have been training with specific focus on practice and accreditation since 2002 at Spectrum in North London, perhaps the foremost organisation for integrative humanistic and formative psychology in the UK, where I have completed the following courses, amongst many others:

Spectrum Postgraduate Certificate in Psychotherapy, 2005

Oxford Cambridge and RSA Certificate in Counselling Skills, 2006

Anger Programme, Self-Esteem, Gestalt, Formative Psychology, Childhood Sexual Abuse, Sexuality Programme, Reparenting, Clinical Skills...

Spectrum Certificate in Counselling and Psychotherapy 2011

I continue my personal and professional development at Spectrum, and undertake all my work under the supervision of a UKCP accredited psychotherapist.

I am associated with Cruse Bereavement Care, where I work and am accredited.


My full fee is £55, and I offer lower cost therapy for people whose circumstances would otherwise prevent them from having access to therapy.
