My Practice. 

Whether facing major or minor life issues, I provide everyone with the same safe and non-judgemental space, where my clients are free to explore anything and everything they want. 

I know from my own experience how valuable counselling can be but it takes a fair bit of courage to find and come to a complete stranger and even more to open your heart. To help you, I offer all my prospective clients an introductory session for £20 where you can meet me and together we can work out what works best for you. I have no fixed timescales and clients are free to see me as little or as much as they like. 

My standard fee is £45 per session but I operate a flexible system which is geared to helping those with tighter budgets and/or are eligible for concessionary rates, students for example. If you are unable to travel, I offer Skype sessions for a reduced rate. Please send your questions, comments and inquiries using the form here; by text at: 07831 155791 and email: [email protected]


I have spaces available on Monday afternoons; 14:00 to 18:00 and Wednesday mornings; 10:00 to 14:00 at: Enso Healing Rooms, [ENSO MARTIAL ARTS] 190 Cheltenham Rd. Bristol. BS6 5RB. 


               Thank you for visiting my site today.                                                                             Patrick.

If I have learned anything from my 57 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 and every so often I still like to see a counsellor myself. 

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.

Thought for Now.

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