About me

Hello my name is Rhianan. I am a fully qualified Counsellor & Supervisor, working in private practice in Southville clinic BS3 area. The clinic is also easily accessible from centre of Bristol , located a short distance from the M-shed.

I offer face to face sessions for £40 per session with some concessions available for single parents and student counsellors. I offer Skype and/or phone counselling sessions at a reduced cost of £25. My face to face sessions are at Southville clinic and are day time appointments but skype /phone can be on an evenings.

I also offer Counselling Supervision for both student and qualified Counsellors.(please see fees below)

I am also able to offer couples/relationship/family/friendship/work based Counselling.(please contact me for fees tailored to your therapy requirements)

I work in an integrative, person centred way with a humanistic foundation, incorporating healthy challenge. This means I draw on a variety of approaches and models to best facilitate a safe and healthy space for you to bring in to the room whatever you would like to-with out judgment.

I have worked with a variety of people who have brought a wide spectrum of issues into counselling, including anxiety, relationship and family issues, low self esteem and depression. As well as emotional abuse and narcissistic abuse.I treat each person equally and offer the same core conditions to everyone.

Further information

Accessing counselling is not the easiest thing to do. 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.

Counsellors are trained to be able to safely hold you as a client with some areas of life you may feel painful, uncomfortable, in shame over, vulnerable or broken. Seeking counselling is the first step to allowing yourself to look at the things buried deep inside- while growing and freeing yourself of the weight of them through the therapeutic process.

Some times there can be scepticism about counselling and whether it works and many factors can feed into this perception, including our own readiness for therapy and our finding the right fit as a client/counsellor.

I encourage you to take the leap or step, depending on how big that step looks at the moment- and give it a try, a real genuine try and begin to explore, heal and grow to the healthiest version of yourself- because its all in there!
