My name is Rue, I am a very compassionate person with a strong desire to help people along their journey to becoming the best versions of themselves. I am a qualified & experienced integrative counsellor and adhere to the BACP ethical framework, I work primarily with a person-centred approach to counselling which means I can offer a non-judgmental approach whilst drawing from other models such as Transactional analysis (TA) & cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). I am a co-owner of one of Bristol’s most highly respected affordable counselling organisations where I have gained experience working with Adults, relationships, young people and children.
After receiving therapy myself I could see first hand how much it can truly help a person to gain a healthier & happier perspective and to understand themselves and their behaviour better. As your counsellor, I am there to see your struggles from your point of view and provide a safe, non-judgmental space which will enable you to feel at ease and accepted. This will allow you to explore and utilise your own strengths and personal identity.
Working together, I can aim to help you reach goals you set out for yourself, help to Recognise any unhealthy behaviours and aim to guide you to becoming the best version of yourself.

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.
