Cynthia BucklandCounselling & Therapy
Bristol & Weston-Super-Mare
Dip.Couns, MBACP Registered
Hi! My name is Cynthia …
I am a fully qualified integrative counsellor having obtained my diploma in 2004 at the University of the West of England.
I have worked within Avon & Wiltshire Partnership NHS Trust as a counsellor since 2004 and continue to work part time in the psychotherapy department at Callington Road Hospital.
During the early part of my training I worked for various voluntary agencies dealing with drug and alcohol addiction using a CBT approach which lends itself well to short term working.
I have also worked at St Peter’s Hospice and the Aled Richards Trust with people living with terminal illness.
Issues or concerns I deal with:
Post traumatic stress disorder
Individuation - Self Fulfilment
Anxiety and Panic Attacks
Individuation is not about individualism but has more to do with becoming everything one is capable of becoming. This is recognised as a process of growth in therapy and could be seen as “self realization” giving more depth of meaning to our lives.
“I want to unfold. I don’t want to stay folded anywhere
because where I am folded, there I am untrue.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
My training was based on the integrative model which means I prefer to integrate techniques and insights from a variety of therapeutic models.
As a mental health counsellor working for many years within a psychotherapy department I have developed a predominantly interpersonal model one which is underpinned by psychoanalysis.
This approach helps understand the way in which our early relationships live on within us, in silent invisible ways influencing our most intimate relationships in the present. A good definition of my approach would be one of relational depth – the primary focus of which is the idea that client – therapist relationship is central to the outcomes of therapy.
As a registered member of BACP I adhere closely to their ethical framework making regular use of good supervision and continuation of professional development.
Therapy sessions are 60 minutes in duration and can be booked most weeks.
Fees are £40 per session. Payments of cash, cheques or card payments accepted.
Introductory consultation of 1 hour at half price – this allows understanding of treatment & any questions
Please contact me for available dates & times.
