We are available and want to hear from you during the Covid-19 pandemic. We offer sessions over the telephone or online via Zoom.
If you live in Bristol or surrounding areas and any of the following statements apply to you, please contact us for more information about how to access our service:
Your counselling sessions provide a time and a place where you can explore how you are feeling about what is happening and speak about things that maybe difficult to share with others. You will also be supported to consider the impact of previous experiences, which may help you to make more sense of what is happening now.
If we can’t offer counselling ourselves, we will do our best to direct you to other agencies who may be able to help.
We hope you enjoy our videos below and find them useful. We did them ourselves so they are not professional quality and you may need to turn the volume up or down!
This therapy is on a 1-1 basis and is weekly. Clients can use counselling sessions to discuss whatever they wish. Regular themes include:
Exploring the impact of death, dying and bereavement.
Talking about fears and concerns about loss.
Discussing relationships with family and friends.
Paying attention to how clients think and feel about their medical treatment.
When one or both members of a couple is facing death, dying or bereavement, it can create all sorts of changes to the relationship.
Coming for counselling together can help to make sense of these, and to find ways to cope and to strengthen your relationship.
We know that couples can draw enormous support from one another at difficult times, but it can be a huge challenge to know how to do this. Illness may require different ways of being with one another, and the roles you have become accustomed to taking in the relationship can change.
Regular weekly therapy helps to understand what is happening, and to make changes that can help.
The Harbour Therapy Groups invite people affected by life-threatening illness in Bristol to come together to speak openly and honestly about the realities of their experiences.
We have an ongoing group for people living with life-threatening illnesses which meets weekly. We are also welcoming clients for a new group for individuals who have lost a close friend, family member or partner following life-threatening illness. People who join our groups might feel very isolated or alone with their feelings.
In group therapy, you can build a mutually supportive community with other people who share similar experiences while guided by an experienced therapist.
Paul North, Clinical Manager at The Harbour talks about the importance of bereavement counselling and hte particular challenges people are facing during the Covid-19 pandemic.
We have a ‘care pathway’ that starts from the moment you contact us.
