About me

I'm Bryn, I'm an Integrative Counsellor based in Sheffield. Life throws challenges at us, and sometimes these are difficult. We go through transitions and change, we experience loss, and our relationships can be troublesome. This can affect our confidence and self-esteem. I work in a non-judgemental and empathic way, led by you, to together understand your experiences and work collaboratively to overcome difficulties you may be facing. At the end of the day, you are the expert in your own experience. I aim to help you unlock your own potential, knowledge, and coping skills so that you can learn more about yourself. In our work together, hopefully, you can also learn how to live with more self-acceptance.

Counselling isn't always easy - in fact, it's rarely easy - but the fact that you're here and reading this shows you want to change. It shows you have the strength and willpower to influence your life, and that maybe you'd like a little help doing a bit more of that.

I have experience in the charitable sector with a variety of issues, from stress, depression and anxiety, to domestic abuse and bereavement. Those labels might apply to some of you, but they might not for others. You might just have "some stuff" you want to talk about, and there might not be a label attached to it, but I'm happy to lend an ear to you regardless.

If you'd like to ask me any questions, or if you'd like to work with me, please get in touch via email or phone. I'm typically free for sessions on weekday evenings and throughout the day on Fridays at the moment. Getting in touch doesn't mean any kind of commitment on your behalf, and won't cost you a penny, and I offer the first session at half rate.

I'm also open to offering walk & talk or outdoor therapy in and around Sheffield.
