About Bryn

I'm Bryn, an Integrative Counsellor based in Sheffield. Life throws challenges at us, we go through transitions and change, we experience loss, and our relationships can be troublesome. This can affect our confidence and self-esteem. I work in a non-judgemental and empathic way, led by you, to together understand your experiences and work collaboratively to overcome difficulties you may be facing. At the end of the day, you are the expert in your own experience. I aim to help you unlock your own potential, knowledge, and self-awareness. In our work together, hopefully you can also learn how to live with more self-acceptance.
Therapy isn't always easy, but the fact that you're here reading this shows you want change.

Get to Know Bryn

Why did you choose to become a therapist?

My journey to becoming a therapist started in my teen years when I had an interest in psychology and understanding people - as I studied this at A-Level, I realised I wanted to make a difference and help people (rather than use my new powers for evil!) I had also had my own experience of therapy around this time too, and it helped me to become a version of myself that I felt confident and positive towards. I wanted to be able to give this back to other people, and to do something with my life that meant I was putting positive things back into the world.

Why do you think integrative therapy is the most effective form of therapy?

I don't believe that one size fits all. Integrative Therapy allows me to tailor the work that we do, to pull in concepts from a variety of theories and build (together with you) a bespoke therapeutic relationship with your best interests at heart. It allows us to be curious, to try things out. If they don't work, that's fine! We can always try something else!

How would you describe your therapy session & approach?

I'd describe my approach as predominantly person-centred, integrating ideas from Transactional Analysis, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and more, but at the end of the day I believe that healing happens in the therapeutic relationship. Building a rapport with clients is crucial, whether that means having a bit of humour in sessions from time to time, or challenging and calling out things that might be a little uncomfortable to hear. My sessions are quite conversational and I will take the time to listen to you. But I'll also provide my own insights, link things together that you might not have noticed, and talk you through some theory to help you better understand what's going on for you.

What are your Top 3 professional achievements so far?

Firstly, I'd say completing my counselling training whilst working full-time in my old Data Analysis job was quite an coomplishment! I would say that starting up my private practice and starting the process of becoming my own boss has to be another. Lastly, I would say that remaining authentic and staying true to myself, rather than conforming to some of the stereotypes of therapists, has been incredibly important to me.
