About me

I have been working as a therapist in Bristol for over 18 years. I specialise in working with a range of issues including:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • bereavement
  • finding meaning in the second half of life / mid-life crisis
  • relationship issues
  • life purpose
  • family issues

I also offer Counselling for Fathers and am increasingly working with Highly Sensitive People (HSP).

Where appropriate I use a variety of creative techniques including:

  • therapeutic writing
  • creative visualisation
  • mindmaps, time lines & drawing


I offer an initial free session. This is a chance for us to meet and make sure we are comfortable with each other.

Daytime - £50 per session

If you are at a key stage in your life then counselling can help you move forward in a positive way. I bring energy, compassion and commitment to my work and have a proven track record of helping people get more out of their lives.

I also work as a counselling supervisor and visiting lecturer.


I work just off Whiteladies Road in Clifton, Bristol and online.

Daytime on Tuesday and Thursday.

Client Testimonial

“When I came to Arieh, my mind and life were in a complete mess. I felt like every aspect of my usually controlled life was unravelling. Arieh taught me to stop, think and accept – three things I’ve never been any good at.

Without him, I would never have realised that the superficial problems I was complaining about in our first session were in fact a by-product of much deeper feelings, which I learned to recognise and, more importantly, accept.

I came to Arieh hoping my relationship with my partner would improve. I left with an improvement in my relationship with my partner, my parents, my sibling, my friends and my colleagues. And with myself!

My time with Arieh has undoubtedly changed my life for the better.”

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
