Gini Baber PG Dip Couple Counselling MBACP (Accredited)
I am a Relate-trained and BACP Accredited Counsellor with over 12 years’ experience of working with couples and individuals. I am based in Ashley Down, Bristol and offer daytime and evening appointments. My fees range from £30 to £50 and I offer an initial consultation for £25.
Life is challenging. It may be that you're finding it difficult to communicate with those closest to you and are feeling alienated and lonely. Or you may be experiencing difficulties in your couple relationship, such as frequent arguments, poor communication or the aftermath of an affair. Or perhaps you are looking for support to help you through a bereavement or strategies to cope with depression and anxiety.
Whatever your difficulty, my aim is to offer you a safe place in which you can explore your feelings and understand how certain behaviours and ways of thinking can affect your relationships. Counselling allows you to identify the changes you'd like to make and develop strategies to bring these about.
Initial contact can be by phone, text or email. We will agree a time to meet for an inital consultation so that we can discuss your needs and assess whether the work is likely to be short-term (typically up to 6 sessions) or long-term. If your needs would be better met by another counsellor or agency I will do my best to make a suitable referral.
