In Bristol & Online

I offer Face To Face Counselling in Bristol in The Practice Rooms centres (see Contact & Info), and Online Counselling via Skype for individuals from anywhere, either in English or in French.

We will have a weekly 50-minutes-session (or fortnightly or twice a week if we agree this could be appropriate for you).

Psychotherapy is a creative and spontaneous process shaped by each practitioner’s unique style and customized for each patient.
— Irvin D. Yallom

Rates & Payment

Weekdays - £50 / Weekends - £60

Concessions available under conditions.

Sessions need to be paid when booked or at least 5 days in advance.

The first session needs to be paid prior to the appointment via bank transfer. Once agreed to work together, the client can either pay by bank transfer for the next session or the monthly sessions, or pay by cash for the next session only. On the final pre-paid session no extra payment will be made.


Cancellation Policy

I have a 72-hour cancellation policy for Face To Face Counselling & 48-hour for Online Counselling.

Any missed session or session cancelled less than 72h/48h (online) before the session are chargeable at full rate.

Therefore, after such occurrence a new payment will need to be made in advance for the next session. All sessions paid in advance are non-refundable, but if you cancel on time the payment will be reported to the next session.

I try to be flexible and when possible to reschedule the cancelled session during the same week.


First Steps

You can contact me via email, phone or by filling the contact form.

If you wish we can have a short conversation over the phone to discuss briefly your situation & expectations, and address any question you might have.

If we come to an agreement, we will book our first session together, - so called Initial Assessment or Initial Interview.

The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.
— Carl Rogers



Our Initial Assessment will be the opportunity for both of us to assess if we can work together.

Ideally, I will send you beforehand my counselling and data protection agreement that you can address any concern you might have.

During the assessment, I will actively listen to what brings you to therapy, asking you notably what your therapeutic goals, expectations & fears are.

We will also discuss briefly your personal history & situation, your family structure, significant events & relationships in your life, your mental & emotional state, and any other information relevant to your presenting issues/matters. 

Afterward, I will ask you if you are willing to engage in a therapeutic process with me. You will be able to tell me right away or within few days, depending on your need for reflection.




The 6th session will be the opportunity for us to review our initial work together and whether or not we wish to continue, and if we do if we want to contract for a certain number of sessions or for an ongoing therapy.

If we contract for an open-ended therapy, then reviews will occur anytime either you or I feel one might be needed.

It is important to say that the therapeutic process is collaborative, and therefore you are entitled to express when you wish to review our work, what I have been provided to you, the focus of our sessions, or when you feel you would like to change one aspect of our contract or address a new concern, or simply when you are thinking of leaving therapy.




If we contract for a specific number of sessions, I will specify if one or several sessions will be dedicated to the completion of our work together. We might decide to renew for more sessions or start an open-ended therapy.

If we contract for an open-ended therapy, both you and I can at any point address the desire or wondering whether or not we are coming to an end.

In all cases, we will meet at least one more time to process a completion of our work together. Depending on the length of time therapy has lasted, we might have several sessions dedicated to this completion.

The purpose of this completion is to review one last time our work together, but also where you were when you started to where you are finishing, and what you might have learned that you can use in the future to your benefit to keep unfolding your self-development and nurturing your well-being, mental and emotional health.


Why seeking Therapy?

Having some psychotherapy is just about the most significant and interesting thing you could do to improve your chances of contentment - in relationships, at work, and with friends and family.

The Power Of Vulnerability

Brené Brown studies human connection -- our ability to empathize, belong, love. In a poignant, funny talk, she shares a deep insight from her research, one that sent her on a personal quest to know herself as well as to understand humanity. A talk to share.

The creative process must be explored not as the product of sickness, but as representing the highest degree of emotional health, as the expression of the normal people in the act of actualizing themselves.
— Rollo May
