About us….

Lifespace counselling is a research clinic, based at the University of the West of England in Bristol. It offers a free or low cost service to members of the public living in the local area. Services are provided by staff and trainees at the University, who are qualified or trainee counsellors or counselling psychologists.

What do we offer?

If you are an individual or couple who feel that it might be useful to talk to people about issues and feelings you are finding difficult, then Lifespace may be able to help.  We can offer 1:1 sessions with our counsellors.  We have a number of research projects running at any time, and if you volunteer for these, the sessions are free.  In other cases, sessions may be available on a low cost basis.

How does it work?

Initially, you can contact us using one of the methods below. We will then get in touch, offering to see you for an initial assessment interview. At this session, we will try to get an initial overview of your situation and concerns, and discuss with you what options we can offer in terms of research projects or low cost sessions (note that currently, most people will meet the criteria for one of our research projects and thus sessions will be free).

Contact us.

To get in touch you can:

Phone 0117 32 83109 - if necessary please leave a message.

Or, use our online contact form here.

Or email the clinic manager: tony.wardATuwe.ac.uk  (replacing AT with @).

 

We also have a clinic line on which current clients can contact us to leave messages, e.g. if they cannot make a session. This number is:  0771 431 3579.

NB—this number is only active just before and during clinic hours.

Lifespace measures.

As part of our research and work with clients, Lifespace uses a number of standardised or research measures.  Current clients can access these on this link.

For further information about cognitive psychodynamic therapy, click here.

Cognitive psychodynamic therapy is an approach to counselling which combines insights from cognitive psychology, neuroscience and  psychodynamic therapy.  This results in an approach that recognises that each individual is unique, formed from their own rich tapestry of past experience and relationships.  It recognises that whilst people are often conscious of the things which are troubling them, the patterns which play out in their lives often do so without full awareness.  Cognitive psychodynamic therapy empowers people to  reflect  on their active thought processes, as well as the patterns which play out both at work and at home. The aim is to enable people to use their own inner resources and  experiences to  lead fulfilled and productive lives.
