Dr Jade West, Clinical Psychologist
Oak Tree Walk
Therapy in Keynsham
I am a fully qualified Clinical Psychologist, with a warm and patient approach. I offer one-to-one therapy in Keynsham, tailored to people’s individual needs. My practice is within easy reach of South Bristol, including Brislington, Stockwood, Hanham, and Kingswood. It is also commutable from Saltford, Bath, Warmley, Willsbridge, and Whitchurch.
I am experienced in drawing from a range of evidence-based approaches, including Attachment-Based Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness-informed therapy. These approaches can help people to make meaningful changes in their lives, as well as develop acceptance and self-compassion for what cannot be changed.
I am experienced in working with a range of difficulties, including:
- Anxiety, panic or obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Low mood, depression or lack of pleasure in life
- Anger or problems controlling anger
- Trauma, including Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
- Low self-esteem
- Difficulties around identity / sense of self
- Unhelpful or destructive relationship patterns
- Difficulties making or keeping relationships
- Loss, bereavement or grief
- Existential themes, such as loss of meaning in life, or fears about death
I listen deeply to what people bring to their therapy space. Many of the people that I have worked with have reported feeling comfortable with me, which has allowed them to open up about their most troubling thoughts and feelings. I provide a nurturing, non-judgmental space, where we can begin to build a trusting relationship.
I offer both short and long-term therapy in Keynsham, with regular reviews so we can make sure the therapy is suiting your needs.
I offer the first meeting at a reduced rate of £50. This initial meeting gives us the chance to talk about your needs and expectations, and to see whether I can help. It would give you a sense of how I work, with the opportunity to ask any questions.
Please feel free to contact me if you have a query about therapy or would like to arrange an initial meeting.

Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working in psychological services since 2005, and continue to work within the NHS alongside private practice. In this time, I have worked with adults with a wide range of difficulties such as depression, anxiety, anger, traumatic experiences, loss, low self-esteem, and difficult relationship patterns. I am experienced in drawing from evidence-based approaches.
Much of my experience has involved working with people who have had difficulties in relation to early trauma and/or emotional neglect. During my career, I have developed my interest in Attachment-Based Therapy and Mindfulness-informed approaches. I also have an interest in working through the existential themes that can emerge in therapy, such as fears about about mortality, responsibility, isolation, or meaninglessness.
