About me

Hi my name is Patience. I presently work for the NHS in a Mental Health Crisis Team.

I am a qualified Person Centred Counsellor, working in Bristol, offering 1:1 Telephone, Watsapp and Zoom sessions. I am a registered member of BACP and work within the BACP ethical framework. I also receive regular supervision.
Counselling is a great way to explore and understand your thoughts and feelings. I am here to help you find your own way forward and overcome your problems and improve your well-being and mental health.

I came to therapy following the sudden deaths of a number of family members. Counselling helped me to cope with grief and I found a way to live and move forward with the loss.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at City of Bristol College obtaining a Level 5 diploma in Person Centred Counselling. After I completed my counselling training 5 years ago I began to volunteer for Cruse Bereavement Care. I also volunteered and had placements at

Nilaari - (worked with clients from BAME - Black and Asian Minority Ethnic) with mental health, substance misuse and reoffending behaviours.

Off the Record - Worked with young adults who were struggling with their feelings, depression, anxiety, stress, low mood, low self-esteem and loss.

I offer a safe and confidential space where you can explore your feelings, be listened to, without judgement and learn helpful strategies to overcome problems.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
