Cheryl Henson-Tsang - (FdSC MBACP)
Hello my name is Cheryl and I am a qualified, experienced therapist working private practice in Mangotsfield, Bristol. I offer a friendly, calm and relaxed space. My therapeutic focus is on helping people being challenged by low self-esteem, anxiety, life transitions, relationship issues, depression, bereavement, abuse, addiction, and loss and grief. Working together we can explore your thoughts, feelings and behaviours and work toward finding healthy perspectives and meaning.
The aim of our sessions is to have a better understanding of yourself and support you alongside your counselling journey, gaining strength and exploring coping strategies if needed.
I recognise that every individual is different and I am able to draw on my skills as a therapist and use a range of theories which might be suitable. This will enable an individual therapeutic relationship to develop according to your own needs, moving at a pace that suits you.
'I believe changes that come from within can be empowering and profoundly life changing'
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and work within the BACP Ethical Framework.
