Harriet O'Brien, Psychotherapist in Bristol ,

Harriet O'Brien
I am a psychotherapist in training and member of UKCP, offering low cost psychotherapy in central Bristol.

My style is warm, compassionate and collaborative and I provide a confidential space free from judgment. I believe you are the expert in your own experiences and I offer to be alongside you in whatever you choose to bring to our sessions - all feelings and experiences are welcome and valued. I will work with you collaboratively to build a strong therapeutic partnership so that you can feel safe to express yourself freely and in doing so gain self understanding, acceptance, increased resilience and more balance in your life.

I am trained in a wide range of psychotherapeutic theories so that I can work with you as an individual, drawing on different expertise to meet your needs. This is a creative and collaborative process and one that is unique to you and led by you.

I am consciously committed to anti-oppressive practice within my psychotherapy practice.

My fee is currently £25 per hour. Sessions are held weekly and are 50mins long. I practice from Arches Therapy Rooms on Cheltenham Road, Bristol.

I am in my third year of psychotherapy training at BCPC in Humanistic and Integrative psychotherapy. I am in regular clinical supervision with a highly experienced practitioner.

I have worked as a trainee psychotherapist at the SWAN project, supporting clients in addiction recovery.

For the last 8 years I have worked as a specialist case worker for vulnerable adults experiencing complex trauma across a number of public and voluntary sector services. These include St Mungo's, Bristol Mental Health (NHS) and The Icelandic and British Red Cross. As a result I have experience in working alongside individuals in active addiction and recovery, complex trauma, suicidal ideation, self harm, sexual abuse, domestic violence, childhood abuse, survival sex work, homelessness, human trafficking and modern slavery, eating disorders, chronic depression and anxiety.
