Luke Brownlee-Williams MBACP (Accred) - Integrative Counsellor
I am an experienced accredited BACP Counsellor and I practice in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. I currently work full time for the NHS and see private clients in evenings and weekends from Southville Clinic Bristol and Nailsworth Stroud.
My aim is to create a safe, confidential and warm space in which to explore the issues which you bring. Together with a focused and boundaried approach, I like to bring creativity, warmth and humour into the counselling room along with my passion for this area of work.
I believe that anxiety or depression can be a way of drawing our attention to what is currently inhibiting us from engaging fully in our life. I appreciate that it may be difficult initially to engage in the counselling process. However, I believe that living with these unexplored difficulties is even more distressing.
Each counselling relationship is unique and I value each client’s individuality when working together. I can work with you on a short term, long term or open-ended basis depending on your need. The therapy I offer will involve us developing clear boundaries in which to explore the past/present issues that are affecting your life and together discover a path to move forward.
The first step can be a daunting one, but identifying that there is an area of life that you would like to change is the biggest step of all. Our first session will be a chance for me to explore with you the reason for seeking counselling; a chance for you to ask any questions you may have about this process and for me to see if I would be the best person to help you at this time. If we choose to work together we can then arrange a regular time to meet.
If you would like to arrange an initial assessment please email, text or call to book a mutually convenient time.
