Thank you for visiting my website.
My name is Jane Collingwood – I am a qualified psychotherapist running a general private practice offering support in all aspects of life – with specialist experience as a Bereavement Counsellor and an approved therapist for Anxiety UK.
I offer a confidential professional space – giving you the opportunity of exploring and understanding issues troubling you.
Currently I am offering online therapy using Zoom. I can also arrange ‘Walk and Talk’ on the Downs should you prefer.
I offer private counselling in two locations in Bristol which I hope to resume once current restrictions ease.
- Henleaze, BS9
- Montpelier, BS6 – Thursdays 9am – 3pm
I firmly believe that talking to someone about your difficulties – being heard and understood – can really help with a wide range of issues including:
- Anxiety and Stress
- Bereavement from suicide
- Emotional Abuse
- Low self -confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Personality issues & identity
- Relationship issues
- Work-related issues
Take the time to examine –
- Why YOU feel a certain way
- Why YOU react a certain way.
- Why perhaps you continue to repeat behaviours that leave you unhappy.
And gain a deeper personal understanding in:-
- who YOU are
- what YOU need to be able to function and cope successfully
- what YOU are capable of (and what your limitations are)
- what boundaries YOU need to keep in place to keep yourself safe and secure.
All of this will not only increase your own mental well being and ability to cope and function but it also increases your ability to convey this successfully to others – thereby improving the relationships you have with those around you.
Counselling is about helping you to find answers to your own unique issues and problems – Finding answers and solutions that make sense to you and that can fit in with your world.
You will not be judged or told what to do by me – but offered empathy and understanding.
Understanding, Accepting and Believing that we do have a choice of how and when we act – within our our limitations and boundaries – allows us to communicate and interact with others in the confidence that we are being true to ourselves and in turn true to those around us.
