Craig Davies, Psychotherapist, MA, dipHIP, UKCP registered
Finding clarity from within.
My name is Craig Davies and I am a fully qualified and experienced Psychotherapist available for short and longer-term treatment. I hold full UKCP registration.
If you are experiencing emotional difficulties, problems in relationships or patterns in your life that you want to change, psychotherapy can be an effective way of addressing these issues from within. I offer a comfortable and confidential space in which to explore your feelings. I work in accordance with the code of ethics of UKCP.
I offer weekly therapy on a one-to-one basis from my private practice in Patchway (BS34). Free secure parking is available. For a number of years my professional background has been in the mental health field, both NHS and Private Sector, working with individuals who have experienced a range of difficulties that I feel are an understandable part of being human. I recognise that seeking therapy can sometimes feel somewhat anxiety provoking but I hope that my down to earth approach will leave you feeling more at ease.
To make an appointment with me please see my contact details or email here. After the initial consultation, you are under no obligation to continue.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I charge £50.00 per 50 minute session. I have made some low-cost sessions available to those facing financial hardship; please enquire if you think this applies to you. Sessions can be paid for in cash or bank transfer.
Daytime and evening sessions available.
Please note that I am only able to offer psychotherapy via online platforms such as Skype and Zoom at present due to the COVID-19 virus. I am hopeful that this will only need to be a temporary measure. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about this process.
