Welcome to Isabel Bristowe Counselling

Supporting a positive way forward for individuals and couples

Please note that I am on sabbatical from regular client work until October 2024 and I do not keep a waiting list. I will have some availability for Intensives with couples in July and August.

Seeking counselling can be very daunting. You have taken the first step by looking at this website. Please take a moment to look around my site to learn a bit more about me and my approach, and then, if you would like to, contact me so you can ask any questions and see whether you would feel comfortable working together.

I am a BACP accredited counsellor and a certified Emotionally Focused Therapist and Supervisor (EFT – visit iceeft.com or beftcentre.org  for more information) working with individuals and couples. I work with adults and older teenagers. I offer private and confidential counselling in Sloane Square, London and in Haslemere, Surrey.

I have experience of working with people dealing with a wide range of issues including:

Depression – Anxiety – Stress
Cancer – Illnesses
Relationship Difficulties – Loneliness – Life Crisis
Bereavement – Loss
Work-related Stress – Redundancy – Retirement
Major Life Changes – Low Self-esteem
Abuse – Trauma

My role as a counsellor is to provide you with an opportunity to explore any personal difficulties you may be having in a non-judgmental, supportive and confidential environment. This may include expressing feelings that are painful and which many of us experience at certain times in our lives. When this happens it can be difficult to stay positive and cope with everyday life. I like to build a warm, respectful and collaborative partnership that helps you to find a positive way forward with personal issues or concerns.
