About us

Leaders in child and family mental health.

We are a not for profit organisation and charity offering psychotherapy and counselling for families, young people, children, adults and couples.  We charge a fee of £65 - £85 for our self-referral counselling services but we also provide free services for children in schools and via social services.

Established in 1984 and Bristol based, we have a strong commitment to providing accessible, high quality clinical services to a wide range of people.

We are now working in person and on Zoom.

All counsellors and psychotherapists at The Bridge Foundation are qualified and experienced professionals. All receive regular supervision and work to a professional code of ethics such as British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy, British Psychoanalytic Council, United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy and Association of Child Psychotherapists.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
