About us

We are experienced counsellors with a wide variety of backgrounds.

We start by offering Zoom, Skype, face time or phone sessions. Our qualified counsellors are also offering online or face to face and walk and talk sessions.

Those of our counsellors who have had both vaccine injections and will talk with you about moving from online sessions to face to face sessions, when that change feels right for both the counsellor and the client.

If the counsellor has not been able to take the vaccine the sessions will continue online.

If the client has not been able to receive the vaccine we will continue to offer online sessions.

We offer counselling with qualified counsellors in rooms in Bristol.  We work in rooms in Saltford BS31. These counsellors are offering us their concessionary spaces at £35.00 per session these sessions can be online or face to face or walk and talk.

Training, qualifications & experience

Our values are drawn from the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) ethical framework. These include working with integrity, honesty and courage. We hold confidentiality as central to our work

Our key theoretical model is drawn from humanistic theory where we believe that each person has the ability to take responsibility for themselves and to change and grow towards their own potential.

We also draw on other theories and theorists and in supervision consider the work from a psycho dynamic perspective.
