COUNSELLING IN BRISTOL
My name is Claire Nunan and I am a friendly, approachable and highly qualified BACP Accredited counsellor based in central Bristol and close to Clifton. Throughout my ten years’ experience for charities and in private practice, I have seen just how difficult and pressured life can be and how counselling can help with this.
For me, the heart of counselling is a good relationship between client and counsellor. This is essential to create a safe, trusting and respectful setting for exploration, reflection and understanding of what is important to you.
As we are all individual and unique, people will naturally need different things from counselling. Because of this, I use an integrative, person-centred approach which means that we can work together in a way which suits you best, drawing from different techniques which will support you through the process of counselling. I will help you to reflect and explore to find your own solutions and your own methods of overcoming challenges.
I am an Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and I am on their Register of Practitioners. I adhere to their ethical framework for good practice, attend regular professional supervision and ensure I take part in continuing professional development training. I am also a Certified Cyber Therapist and a Profession Member of the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).
I believe that counselling should be completely non-discriminatory. As an essential part of this belief I work with a LGBTQ+/GSRD affirmative approach. I am also sensitive to issues surrounding BAME communities, race, ethnicity and culture as well as individuals’ religious beliefs.
