“When you learn strategies that help you to relax, focus and feel in control, life can change immeasurably.”

My story

Thats where I can support you! I am Daniel, a Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapist based in North Bristol.

“As a child I suffered with sight and hearing problems, often finding that some people struggled to understand and accept the difficulties I was facing. As is often the case, this affected me mentally leading to low self-confidence and anxiety issues. Without proper treatment, my mental health problems followed me through university and the first stages of my career. Since then, I’ve suffered numerous medical issues from osteoporosis to brain seizures and chronic pain – I even had to spend a six-month stint in a wheelchair and two months in hospital recuperating after an accident.

I’m not telling you this for sympathy, what I’m trying to say is, “I get it”. I understand how hard it is. The thing I’ve learned through all of this is the importance of not giving up, of finding the positives and focusing on the future. I believe whole-heartedly in the impact that solution focused hypnotherapy can have on the psychological effects of a chronic physical condition. If you feel you’re ready for something to change, then I believe I’m the person to help make that possible. I’d love to give you the tools and techniques to get you back in control and living your best life.”

Sharan Thiara

I am a qualified Psychotherapist counsellor who practices with a Humanistic & Integrative approach. This means I will focus on the needs of you, using techniques from different approaches.

Each and everyone of us are unique and therefore I do not feel I am the expert of you and can tell you what to do, my belief is to support and guide you, with my experience to help you work through your concerns. So that you can start to feel more complete within yourself.

The first step in starting counselling can feel overwhelming, bringing past thoughts to the surface and stirring up feelings of being judged, neglect, not trusting the other. My attitude is to value you for doing the best you can. It can be tough for us at times. Let us accept us for who and how we are right now at this moment.

I have personal experiences around being judged, mental health as well as trauma, so please do not feel you are alone. Once we allow ourselves to sit with the uncomfortable feelings, we will begin to flourish.

Your Mind Therapy

At a young age I’ve witnessed parental domestic abuse, bullied at primary and secondary school which created isolation, this triggered me to have low self esteem, anxiety and depression which went on to effect me in areas of relationships and confidence. As I went into adult life I suffered with post natal depression and mental health anxiety.As well as helping in my own recovery using CBT and holistic approaches All of the above has helped me to understand the conditions and how to help people better along side being able to relate to a persons experiences for the better. . This is one of the reasons why I chose this field of work although I did a law degree.

I offer therapy via Zoom or Whatts app or Telephone.

Sam Gibbons

I am a BACP registered and professionally trained and qualified counsellor. I offer a friendly and approachable counselling service to adults and young people (16yrs+) either online, via telephone, or face-to-face in Surbiton and Twickenham.

Making initial contact with a counsellor or psychotherapist can be difficult, and many people feel anxious in doing so. My aim is to make this process as supportive as possible for you; I offer a professional counselling service which is warm, empathic, non-judgemental, and flexible to your needs.

What has brought you here?

People come to counselling and psychotherapy for a variety of reasons. These may include feelings of distress, hopelessness, anxiety and/or unease, and often not knowing quite why you feel this way; a sense that ‘something just doesn’t feel quite right’. Maybe you are experiencing problematic thoughts and behaviours – thinking, feeling and/or behaving in ways which may lead to feelings of embarrassment, shame, or feeling a need to disappear. Or maybe you are experiencing feelings of low self-esteem, feeling depressed and unable to engage with life, feeling pessimistic, misunderstood and alienated.

Sometimes, people feel able to talk about their difficulties with a close friend or relative, but often these problems can feel too difficult, or too personal to discuss within a conventional relationship. Others may feel that they ‘should’ be able to work through such issues on their own, but they somehow feel that they are just too big.

How I can help

With the help of an objective and professional therapist, counselling allows you the opportunity to explore your thoughts and feelings in a safe and supportive environment, helping you make sense of the troubling conflicts between your emotions and your behaviour, and allowing the opportunity for positive change happen.

Sophie Barrett

I am a qualified Counselling Psychotherapist and an accredited member of the British Association for Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).  As an accredited member I am recognise as having achieved a high standard of knowledge, experience and development in counselling and psychotherapy.  I keep myself informed of up to date research and continue to develop my own skills and understanding through CPD courses and further training.

With a deep curiosity and desire to understand my own mind and experiences I have undertaken many processes of  personal and academic development.  I am interested in the variety of ways in which to understand how we function, interact and adapt as human beings.

Through my natural analytic way of thinking  I have sought (and continue to seek) to understand the different ways we perceive, understand and manage life experiences, both those of our mind and that of the external world.   This understanding is derived from intense and thorough vocational training; obtaining broad academic qualifications in psychotherapy, counselling and psychology; and from my own therapy and analysis.    I believe in the importance of relational work and see the foundation of any therapeutic healing to be grounded in the relationship with have with ourselves and with others.  This is complexly combined with our neurological, biological, cognitive and psychological composition, which all intertwine with our environmental experiences.

In every individual there is the capacity to adapt, develop and evolve and I believe we all have the ability to create an environment which enables us to manage life’s challenges and continue to develop in the face of them.  We work within the boundaries of our unique psychological make-up using the resources we naturally have and obtaining those we don’t in order to function and grow.  This process begins with recognising that every individual has a choice and in every choice there is a consequence.  Ultimately, one’s choices will determine how one lives life.  Investing in yourself, believing that you are worth the same as another, and creating an internal and external environment which supports you in times of crisis or injury as well as those of development and growth is key to the therapeutic process.

Nicola Demetriou

“I wish had the courage to express my feelings. I wish that I had let myself be happier”. Hi I’m Nicola and I believe that having courage to seek help when we need it can change our lives. Making you feel safe and heard is my priority. Walking through your difficult feelings you will have the opportunity to explore a new perspective and find the tools needed to equip you to manage situations more effectively. I work with people who have depression, anxiety, bereavement, work stress, abuse, self-esteem and relationship difficulties. I am passionate in helping you to feel more fulfilled and understand more about yourself.

I have previously trained as a primary school teacher. However, after suffering a very close bereavement I reached out for support and saw the benefit and value of counselling which I also wanted to bring to other people.

I offer face to face and online counselling through video calls or telephone counselling. This allows flexibility for you to have a session wherever you feel comfortable without having to travel, especially in these unprecedented times. Furthermore, it offers similar benefits to face to face counselling as we are able to see each other and build the one to one relationship more effectively.

During our first session which is 50 minutes long, I believe building a trusting relationship with you is paramount and we will explore what has brought you to counselling and the experiences you are currently having as well as touching on your past experiences to gain a greater understanding of who you are as a person. I will then discuss with you what your goals of the therapy are which we will review in set intervals together, depending on whether you would like short term or long term counselling.

Tracy Dunning

When we go through life, our opinions alter and so do our thoughts on past and present experiences. Things we have been through previously can suddenly hit us like a ton of bricks and we don’t know where the thoughts came from. We can be watching tv, reading a book and all of a sudden, Anxiety we never had before rears its ugly head affecting us in ways we never thought of, disturbing our daily lives whether gradually or suddenly. We could be sitting in a cafe with friends, completing tasks at school/work and all of a sudden a huge wave of grief takes over us. I am here to help you explore these feelings learning ways to cope.

 

I am a qualified counsellor and have CBT as my core model of study. I have also had personal experience of mental & physical abuse, health issues, divorce, loss & bereavement, LGBT+ issues and many others from child, young person and adult perspectives therefore I am able to empathise with my clients issues and walk with them on their own path of life.

I am passionate in taking the stigma and taboo away from mental health and therapy.  I strive to make therapy as accessible as possible and to ensure that my clients can get the support they need.  I acknowledge that many clients come to therapy when they are worried, stressed, overwhelmed and some times frightened.  I work to improve mental well being and resilience and to work with clients to support them to feel that they can cope with issues and concerns and can work towards their goals at their own personal pace.

I work well with clients who find it difficult to talk about how they feel, or ask for what they need.  I help clients to build self esteem, be more self compassionate and build the tools they need to maintain mental wellness and resilience.

We are living in challenging times where fear, uncertainty and confusion are commonplace.

Many people I consult with are worried about not fitting in rather than what makes them unique and special. As well as what unites and connects them to others.

It’s easy to become used to over-relying on what others want from us, whilst losing sight of who we really are.

We’ve not been encouraged in many of our communities and establishments to practice self-inquiry and reflection. This is not good for personal autonomy or building courage or confidence to be ourselves.

It’s easy for us to lose touch with how we feel, and be vulnerable to manipulation by others. Perhaps because we are afraid of what others might think of us if we dare to express our differences.

Thankfully coming to counselling and coaching can be a way of learning to manage and cope with uncertainty and the fear of rejection. Helping us to get back in touch with what is important to us, and reconnect with our true feelings and senses.

From here we can grow both mentally and physically stronger and more confident of who we are, and what is right for us and our loved ones.

I always want my work to be first and foremost about being of service to others.

I’ve had an awareness for many years that much of the suffering and terrible things that happen in the world are fundamentally unnecessary and wrong. And that collectively we can help each other to grow stronger and more resourceful individuals and communities.

Self-development is not only an investment in ourselves, but it’s also an investment in society. In that, we are saying we are committed to becoming a better version of ourselves each day for the benefit of our community.

Maybe now is the perfect time to invest in yourself? More and more people are seeking to become more self-actualizing and to reach their true potential.

What would you like to understand better, react differently to, grow stronger in, or be more accepting of?

One of the ways we can do this is by, when possible, making use of the challenges and adversity we face in seeing them as opportunities to grow rather than negativity. Of course, this is not always easy, and we may need help along the way.

I have found through activities like ‘Wim Hof method’ cold therapy training, that doesn’t kill us can most definitely can make us stronger.

If we take sensible strategic risks and practice relaxing into our fight-flight responses, we can develop the resilience we need through gentle repetitive exposure to what we find challenging. This can help us to re-write our responses.

As well as reducing the need to over-rely on medication to function, which also risks putting harmful toxins into our bodies as well as having potentially negative side effects including addiction.

It’s far better to get back in touch with our true nature the way many of our ancestors were.

I help with:

• Anxiety • Self Esteem • Depression • Relationship Difficulties
• Trauma • Burnout • Loneliness and more…

Do you feel you put the needs of others ahead of your own, feeling overwhelmed, guilty or unable to say no to others?
Maybe it has gotten to the point where you don’t even consider yourself, putting everyone else’s needs before your own. I can help you to grow in confidence, speak your mind and establish healthy boundaries.

Do you feel anxious and worry a lot?
Perhaps you feel suffocated, or berate yourself and wish life didn’t have to be so hard, or maybe worry about what everyone else thinks about you. I can help you understand where all these thoughts and feelings are coming from so you can begin to have more peace in your life.

Do you feel stuck in the same old patterns?
Together, we can figure out why you feel this way, uncover the roots of your struggle and learn how to do things differently.

Do you feel like you need a partner to feel validated and loved?
You might even dread being alone or fear that they might leave you, to the point where you feel like you’re losing yourself. With my support, with or without a partner, you can be content or confident in yourself.

———————————————————————-

My aim is create a safe non-judgemental space where you get to explore your own thoughts and dilemmas, bringing awareness to your feelings and the thoughts that drive them.

I can help you to explore your issues, which can range anything from anxiety to depression, family conflict or relationship issues to general life stresses, work stresses, self esteem, exam stresses and more.

In therapy, the past inevitably does come up and I know the idea of looking into our past can be scary and overwhelming.

Therefore, I want you to know that I won’t force you to go deeply into anything you don’t feel comfortable with.

Therapy will be at your pace and will be guided by you and I will be ready to explore any areas of your life if and when you are ready.

Registered with the National Council of Psychotherapists, my therapeutic approach is experiential and incorporates a range of styles and perspectives including Transpersonal Psychology, Family Systems Theory, Person Centered and Gestalt Psychology.

If you find yourself in financial trouble, please do no hesitate to email, as everyone deserves to be accommodated.

Hal M.

Hello there dear reader, my name is Hal, short for Haldun Hüseyin Musazlioglu (just call me Hal, everyone does).

When people ask me how I got into psychotherapy, I usually say it got to me first:
I was 12 years old when I first had to see a therapist. People near me (ironically not my parents) noted already back then my permanent gloomy and melancholic outlook on life – even this in Germany where I was born, by all means not a country known for its ‘cheerio!’ attitude. Years later, I was diagnosed with dysthymic depression and finally had to be put on anti-depressants aged 30 after a preceding psychotic episode (my way of a mid-life crisis: not blowing a lot of money, but instead losing gradually touch with reality). It was also around this time when my aunt in Turkey shared that the entire matrilineal side of our family had prolonged battles with depression. Thanks, mum.

On top of this, our Muslim upbringing didn’t aid much to my family’s mental health. It also doesn’t do much for you if you realise you’re gay, and you eventually need to come out. As I had to. And did. My mum cried for three months, realised eventually her son will never be the imagined prim solicitor/doctor with wife and kids, so reverted instead to hate my tattoos.

By age 19, I had properly felt sick and tired of that kind of constrained upbringing, also of the Germans, so moved to London (though frankly, now I feel like that with the English, but this is for a different forum…)

After several more years bumbling through various underpaid customer service jobs,  I studied Art & Design/more or less useful degrees (Furniture Design. Yes, seriously.) and tried myself out among other things as a film extra and a Stand-up comedian (memorably, I died in a North-London pub in front of an audience that consisted of my ex-boyfriend and Russell Brand), I looked finally into how I could use my own experiences with depression, inter-cultural clashes, emerging kink-sexualities, an HIV+ status and a fanatical liking for Heavy Metal, so I eventually studied counselling.

By 2012 I started my counselling studies and after around 5 years, including one failed year of CBT (blowing finally a lot of money after all), I decided to stick with the humanistic school of therapy of Person-Centred counselling, developed by Carl Rogers. From the 1940ies on, already being a bit of a hippie and believing that everyone is innately ‘good’, he decided to emphasise the non-hierarchical alliance between client and therapist, while maintaining an “unconditional positive regard”.

And I soon found it worked for me – and for my other job, which is in mental health rehabilitation.

Then in August 2019, I also started my MSc degree in Psychology with Arden University. My plan after I finish in around three years’ time, is to fall into a very relaxing coma.

Until then, I genuinely find a lot of fulfilment through my work, so please don’t hesitate to ask me questions about whatever life has thrown at you.

Das alles übrigens gerne auch auf deutsch!  ; )
