About me

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.
