About me and my therapy practice

Hello and welcome. I’m Ingrid. I am an experienced BACP registered counsellor in my 50s offering both daytime and evening appointments in Portishead and in central Bristol. I work face to face as well as by phone and skype. Areas of special interest include identity and loss, mixed heritage and the impact of boarding school and other forms of family separation.

Sometimes we do not understand why we are feeling rageful, fearful, low, lost and lacking in meaning and self esteem. We may feel very unsure. Sometimes we know that there are things in our past or in our family life that we need to come to terms with in order to move forward. But coming to counselling takes courage. The process of counselling can help hidden parts of you to find a voice, a voice that may have been lost long ago to bravery and silence - through shame, guilt and fear.

What does this mean for you I wonder? What is your soul calling for?

I know from personal experience both as a client and as a therapist that talking therapy helps very many of us to feel more connected, more alive, more at one with ourselves, and more able to make choices that take us in the direction we want to be going.

Paradoxically it is often only by dropping down into the darker realms that we can start to feel more whole and more integrated. I pay attention to all the ways in which the subconscious speaks - through imagery, metaphor and dreams, as well as through the body where trauma may be lodged. I also work relationally, with what may arise between us.

Get in touch: An initial session offers the chance to explore what your difficulties are, what type of help will best meet your needs and whether you’d like to work with me.
