Counselling, couples counselling & sex-therapy in Bristol and North Somerset


Counselling, psychotherapy and couples therapy in Bristol and North Somerset

Welcome to Therapy Place, my North Somerset and Bristol-based counselling and psychotherapy practice website for individuals and couples.

As an experienced, fully qualified, accredited and BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) registered counsellor / psychotherapist, I work with individuals, couples and groups (including working with a wide range of sexual issues, problems and difficulties). I always seek to provide a relaxed, comfortable and individual approach to therapy allowing you to talk in confidence about any troubling issues.

Through my main general practice based in Cambridge, UK, I offer a thriving telephone, Skype and Facetime service to individuals and couples in Bristol and North Somerset. You can email me at or text or call me on 07871 257457. (All my points of contact are confidential. Please state Bristol or North Somerset in your message.)

Common reasons women and men seek help from me at my counselling and psychotherapy practice include:

  • stress, anxiety, depression, rumination, self-blame
  • issues around relationships, sex, sexuality, gender
  • past sexual trauma and abuse
  • low self-confidence and negative life events
  • bereavement
  • trauma and childhood abuse (female and male)
  • psychosomatic illnesses
  • issues concerning personal development and fulfilment
  • work-related difficulties
  • looking for meaning in life.

If you are an individual or couple looking for sex therapy, relationship help, couples counselling or help with sexuality issues you might like to look at the relevant pages in the therapies section of this site.

I have particular experience of working in the areas of:
  • couples therapy
  • working with women who prefer to see a male counsellor/psychotherapist
  • pornography addictions and issues; read my book?
  • working with men
  • workplace performance anxiety and stress management
  • mentoring and facilitation for individuals, groups and organisations
  • working with risky sexual behaviours of all natures.

I also offer supervision to other practitioners as well as working with organisations that require the services of a supervisor, therapist for staff members and/or a mentor/facilitator on wider organisational issues.

In addition to counselling, psychotherapy and couples therapy, Therapy Place Bristol and North Somerset runs mindfulness, meditation and deep relaxation groups for couples. Sandra Stafford, a Zen practitioner and experienced and qualified meditation teacher, runs these sessions.

Before you make the decision to begin counselling or therapy you may have some questions about what the process might entail or how it might help you. Since evidence suggests it is the relationship between you and your therapist that has one of the greatest impacts on the success of the work you do in counselling or psychotherapy, please feel welcome to contact me via email to arrange a short telephone conversation prior to booking a session.
