About me and my therapy practice

 Hello, and welcome. I’m Chris and I’m a qualified humanistic psychotherapeutic counsellor with specialist training in bereavement, identity and working within the ASD & LGBTQ+ community. (I am an LGBTQ+ affirmative counsellor)

Additionally, I have experience working with addictions, relationships, and self esteem. I also work with people affected by suicide through the charity Suicide &Co.

Whatever life’s throwing your way, be it anxiety or an overwhelming feeling, I believe in treating the individual, and my approach focuses on exploring concepts such as growth, choice, understanding and meaning making.

Practice description

Typically, you can expect a gentle beginning as we start to find your therapeutic needs via a person-centred approach which can then be built upon depending on those needs. I also draw from other schools within the humanistic tradition such as Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, and Existential therapies to aid and support you in the here-and-now.

Together, we can help you on a journey to find meaning behind what life is like for you with empathy, non-judgement, and warmth to find your true potential.

I am currently offering sessions online on a 1-1 basis for adults. I can also provide telephone sessions for those would like this. I do see clients face-to-face also in Bristol  -please contact me about this as places are limited. Rates remain the same unless via Bristol Councelling & Psychotherapy - see my website for more details on this.
