Rhianan Lowes MNCS DipHE Therapeutic Counselling (also Supervision)
Southville Clinic Ltd
68 Coronation Road
Hello my name is Rhianan. I am a fully qualified Counsellor, working in private practice in South Bristol as well as volunteering as a counsellor for a charity and conducting home visits where appropriate. I also offer Counselling Supervision for both student and qualified Counsellors.
I work in an integrative, person centred way with a humanistic foundation, incorporating healthy challenge. I have worked with a variety of people who have brought a wide spectrum of issues into counselling. I treat each person equally and offer the same core conditions to everyone.
I use an integrative approach with a Humanistic foundation that is guided by self-development and recognises each person’s strengths and choices.
The end of one year and the beginning of a new year can bring up feelings in us that may be difficult to manage alone, maybe you need help put things in perspective-help to heal old wounds that no matter how much we try and bury them they keep cropping up in life- maybe in unhealthy ways.
Counselling really can help.

I offer one to one sessions for adults. I am able to work on a long term basis and will provide as many sessions as you need.
Accessing counselling is not the easiest thing to do for all. There may be many fears around opening up old wounds, or areas of life that have been buried. In my experience the very areas we want to avoid and bury are the very ones we need to face and work through, not try to go around or brush under the carpet. This survival technique can serve us for a while but eventually the things we think we have buried will pop up in unhealthy ways through out our lives and relationships.
Through therapy we can work through these issues in a compassionate and safe environment so a more emotionally healthy life can be lead and patterns and habits that prevent you from living to your full potential, being the best version of yourself can be steadily worked through.
