Philippa Guereca, Registered MBACP, MSc Counselling, MEd, BA.
Depression, anxiety and isolation can prevent us from living life as fully or as happily as we wish. I am based in the Bishopston/Horfield area and I offer counselling to people who need some help to work through their difficulties within a sensitive and confidential relationship.
I am a qualified counsellor with an MSc in Counselling which incorporates the Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling. I am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I work in accordance with the BACP code of ethics. My background is in Psychology, Counselling and Special Education.
Upon completing my degree in Psychology I spent three years living and working as a therapist in a residential therapeutic community for young people with emotional difficulties. This experience underpins my subsequent 25 year commitment to working with adults and young people with differing needs and from diverse backgrounds. I have been a counsellor in a community based counselling service, a registered charity and in private practice
I offer short or longer term counselling, with daytime and evening appointments.
