Empathy is the remedy for shame

“What I am is good enough if I would only be it openly.” 
― Carl R. Rogers

About Me 

My name is Jon and I offer counselling and supervision to young and older adults and trainee or qualified counsellors respectively.  

I specialise in anxiety including panic-attacks and I can offer you a safe and non-judgemental space, where you can talk in confidence openly about anything. I am a warm, kind and approachable counsellor and have a passion for helping people like you to develop a healthier self and to live the life you want to live.  

I work using the person-centred therapy also known as client-centred therapy model which emphasises:  

  • unconditional positive regard (UPR) – accepting and valuing you
  • congruence - being honest and transparent in how I experience you and your world
  • empathic understanding – seeing your viewpoint as if I were you

Person-centred therapy is client-led instead of directive and I will encourage you to bring whatever you wish to talk about to each session. The goal is for you to explore your own thoughts, feelings and behaviours enabling you to become self-actualised and have a greater level of self-acceptance. 

The duration of therapy is up to you. Therapy sessions are weekly, and some people like to have short-term therapy (6-12 weeks) whereas others prefer to have therapy over a longer duration usually up to 2-years.  

Here is a list of areas where I specialise:  

  • Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Autism
  • Bereavement
  • Depression
  • Panic Attacks
  • Relationship
  • Sexual abuse
  • Stalking 
 
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and abide by their code of ethics and conduct. 

I also, hold full professional indemnity and personal liability insurance.

Supervision:  

As well as being an experienced counsellor I am also an experienced relational supervisor, and as your supervisor I will fully support your personal and professional development. I have an open and honest approach to supervision, and I will encourage you to be open in your supervision work with me. Together we will look at your therapeutic client work and your own personal growth as a counsellor.  

The emphasis for relational supervision is that in order for the supervision to be effective from the supervisee's perspective then there must be a robust working relationship between the supervisor and the supervisee. To enable this, I believe that building a trusting and open working relationship is the foundation of good supervision.   

I have limited spaces for supervisee’s and please feel free to call me to discuss availability and suitability.  

Note: I offer concessions for trainee counsellors (see above fees). I have supervised trainee counsellors working at various counselling organisations in Bristol such as: 

  • Affordable Talk
  • Heart to Heart
  • Knowle West Health Association
  • Mothers for Mothers
  • Second Step
