Henriette O’ Bryan (MNCS)

Membership Number: 463
Description:

Hello. My name is Henriette.  I help people who feel overwhelmed, emotionally distressed, anxious or stressed out by relentless life pressures.   Do your relationships with family or colleagues usually result in drama or chaos?

I am an integrative psychotherapeutic counsellor providing person-centred therapy on one-to-one basis. This means we can explore your emotional distress in a flexible way at your own pace from different viewpoints and find ways to manage:

• anger
• anxiety
• burn-out
• depression
• feeling sad due to life changes like menopause, bereavement/grief
• hurt or other worries.
• loss of health, or terminal illness like cancer, loneliness,
• low mood
• low self-confidence
• low self-esteem
• panic disorder
• relationship problems due to affairs and betrayals or separation and divorce
• relaxation
• self-care
• stress
• traumatic experiences

It can be nerve-wracking to open-up emotionally about intimate and private issues that are holding you back in life. Long term emotional suffering from anxiety and stress also affect your physical body. So, well done on taking the first courageous step to take more control over your circumstances.

I am an Accredited Registrant with the National Counselling Society and can provide you with a safe confidential space where you can explore your personal dilemmas. For online counselling work I am registered with the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO).

I support local clients in person in Bridgwater, Somerset, UK and online clients via Zoom. We can work in real time via video/webcam, voice only (like telephone counselling) or instant chat (IM). Or if you prefer a delayed response time I offer email counselling via ProtonMail. Some clients find it helpful to switch between the different mediums whereas others prefer to stick to their preferred way of communication. The way of communication is your choice where you feel safest to:

• explore and make sense of curious, sad, anger-provoking, embarrassing, shameful or traumatic experiences;
• learn how automatic negative thoughts cause negative feelings and unhelpful behaviours including how to change these thoughts to experience more positive emotions and helpful behaviours;
• learn coping strategies or relaxation techniques to improve your mental well-being and manage anger , anxiety or stress;
• understand how you relate to yourself and others. This might explain distress or conflict situations with loved ones, friends or colleagues.

I am here to support you. Either indirectly, if you need to talk at your own pace or come to terms with a sad or difficult experience.  Alternatively, a more directive approach using psychoeducation and cognitive behavioural therapy (cbt) tools might be more appropriate if you want to change an unhelpful behaviour or learn to cope with anxiety and stress. Such approach may involve keeping journals, diary notes or working on goals between sessions.

Your problem is never too small and I shall always give you my full non-judgmental attention.

I look forward to hearing from you and until then, treat yourself how you would treat a good friend.

Counselling with me can help you to make better sense of where you are, where you have been, and where you are going in your life. It can help you to understand yourself and your life better, and can therefore lead you to find better, more positive ways of continuing with it.
Counselling with me offers a safe, non-judgemental space which can enable you to be open and vulnerable about the aspects of your life which feel as if they’re getting in the way of the person you would like to be. You are always in control of what you say, how much and when.
My counselling training is integrative, which just means that I integrate more than one school of thought in my work. I tend to tailor the way I work to the particular needs of the client. You can find out more about the types of training and the approaches I use in the jargon-free descriptions on my website (listed above).

Hi, and a warm welcome.

Perhaps you're here because you're confused, down or frustrated.. Or maybe something just doesn't feel right but you don't know what. Either way, I'd be happy to help.

For nearly a decade I've worked with individuals; and since 2014, couples and groups too. I'm privileged to have worked with socially, economically, and culturally diverse clients, particularly having lived and worked in The Netherlands for two years (2014-16). In the UK, where I'm now based, I've worked in a range of settings: public, private, and specialist (for example in domestic abuse).

I hope the below information is useful to you. Please get in touch if you would like to explore whether we may work well together.

All the best, Rakhi
