About me

Hello and welcome, my name is Philip Rowe and my background in Psychotherapy extends back to my training that started in 1998, whereby people have been coming to see me to enhance various aspects of their life. Over the years I have trained also and qualified as a therapeutic supervisor, shamanic practitioner and energy healing practitioner. I believe in weaving these practices together and coupled with transpersonal psychology that leans into spiritual aspects, provides a unique bespoke therapeutic wellbeing service.  

What I bring - in short

I have worked therapeutic since 1999 from the volunteer, public and private sectors. I have seen clients from various cultural backgrounds, different ethnic origins, religious and spiritual beliefs. You can rest assure that I will bring these many colourful years of experience with me to provide you a safe, sacred and confidential environment to optimise your overall wellbeing. 


Non talking and talking therapies, all forms of healing represent personal, spiritual and professional investments in yourself for you to seek the solitude and peace of mind you desire. 


My professional practice has been approved by the Professional Standards Agency and approved professional member of the National Counselling Society (NCS).

My approach in short

Being an integrative transpersonal psychotherapist allows me to develop a therapeutic approach to meet your needs. Through many years of 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 yourself.

Being an energy healer, holistic medicine holder and shamanic practitioner can naturally be woven into my psychotherapy work to create a more bespoke and unique service.

Having special interest in death and past life I took a specialist past life regression therapy course in 2024. I offer this profound service too.

The Professional Relationship

Regardless of the therapeutic approach, or helping modality it is highly important for you to choose the right therapist, as the key component for your treatment lays within the trust of the therapist. It could prove adventurous to look at my website to gain a deeper insight into me and my service.

A little bit about me

Through my own personal life 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 my own private practice.  My practice become recognised by an addiction rehab service in Bristol and I was commissioned as the lead counsellor and head clinical supervisor. I since gained further contracts both within both the public and the private sector.

My interest and study in shamanism and healing started in about 2012. This ongoing study and practice of shamanism and energy works deepens and complements both my psychotherapy and supervision service.
