Hello, there! My name is Jeremy and I am a person centred counsellor, working in St George, Bristol, BS5 offering evening and weekend counselling slots to fit in around your working week. I'd like to become a partner with you, in helping you to manage your concerns more effectively.
"Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak,
knits up the over wrought heart and bids it break."
William Shakespeare, Macbeth
I enjoy helping people to make sense of what they are going through; helping them to access their own undiscovered inner resources, to live happier, more fulfilling lives.
I work with: Loss, grief and bereavment, relationship break ups, life stage changes, anxiety, addictions and existential crisis.
Modern life can be pretty stressful. Work, family and relationships can all be challenging. "Who am I? Where am I going? I am not where I want to be in life. I have a great job, but am I still unhappy. Something is wrong, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. We broke up a year ago, but I just can’t move on. My drinking is getting out of hand. My life has no meaning. Why am I here?"
If any of the above statements resonate with you, and you feel you want to talk to someone, I can offer a safe, non-judgemental, confidential environment where you can work through what is troubling you. After an initial meeting we can discuss the option of both short or long term counselling, but at the end of the day, you are the expert in your own life, so only you will know when you have done enough.
"It is important to appreciate that a meaningful conversation
can in itself be experienced as very helpful"
(John McLeod, 2011, Counselling Skills)
To fit in around your working day, I can offer weekend sessions (9am – 6pm) and also Sunday early evenings as well. So if you don’t fancy slogging across town at the end of a busy day, why not take the pressure off by choosing a weekend slot instead?
The cost of counselling can vary between practitioners, so I would advise you to shop around and maybe contact a few different counsellors before you find one that you feel comfortable to work with. I personally charge £35 for a FULL HOUR and offer an initial consultation meeting for just £20. This consultation lasts about 50 minutes, time enough so we can have an informal chat and decide if your needs are compatible with my skills, and that we would like to work together.
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and attend regular, continuing professional development to ensure I am working in accordance with my associations best practice guidelines.
