Chris Michael Smith BSc (Hons), Dip, MBACP (Registered)
My therapeutic approach integrates a psychodynamic and person-centred framework with elements of mindfullness and coaching. I specialise in work related stress and work based conflict. This may involve anything from helping you find lasting strategies that will enable you to manage stress, more effectively, to dealing with deeper underlying issues.
This process involves helping you understand your personal view of the world and how this links to the way you relate to yourself and others. This is the starting point for regaining control of your life, and dealing with problems more effectively.
I am based in Central Bristol and offer both long and short-term therapy, either face to face or via Skype.
I am a registered BACP member, and abide by the BACP code of ethics.
