Psychotherapy for individuals and couples in North Bristol.
Working with individuals
My approach is to trust that, with the help of a supportive relationship, everyone has the capacity to find his own way. My belief is that there is real value in having someone who is impartial who can also provide a confidential space for open inquiry and the sharing of feelings. Someone who can simply be there to listen to you when you feel like things are getting too much but will also be there to challenge you and offer a new perspective when you feel ready for further exploration. I hope that I will bring some of my own humanity and vulnerability into the room and that we may work together in a co-creative way to find a way forward. This is what I aim to bring as a therapist in the hope that this will lead to a greater awareness of your own potential and the blocks that get in the way to achieving it.
Working with couples
Being in a couple relationship is often very challenging. It may be that a sudden event has caused a rift to open up between you both and this has compromised your ability to trust and communicate. Or perhaps there has been a growing distance and there is a desire for one or both of you to reconnect and become more intimate. Perhaps you are wanting different things and it is hard to see a future together. In the process of couples counselling, I will work with you both to find a way forward that honours your individual needs, whilst exploring whether there is a way that you can better connect as a couple.
