I have reluctantly taken the decision to close my practice for the duration of the Pandemic. As with everything, this is temporary and I look forward to opening again. Keep well and stay safe. Patrick.
If I have learned anything from my 58 years on this planet it's that life can be tough for all of us at times and we all go through our own trials and tribulations. My own life certainly hasn't been smooth and I will always be grateful for the counselling I received during a difficult time. I also know how valuable counselling can be in assisting with our everyday, daily living and I make sure I see my own counsellor every so often.
In addition to my counselling work, I care for patients with extreme cognitive impairment at the Bristol Royal Infirmary. I am fascinated by the human mind and believe that understanding our minds is the key to living our lives well. I am a Vipassana meditator and keen cyclist.
Genuineness, integrity, honesty and the ability to be non-judgemental are what you need from a counsellor and what you can expect from me. I look forward to welcoming you to Anicca* Counselling. Patrick.
