My name's John Waller. Iím an experienced UKCP registered psychotherapist and counsellor working in private practice at Combe Down Branch Surgery and The Abbey Practice in Bath and Fulcrum House, Bristol.
I provide a professional, confidential and a comfortable place in which to discuss personal concerns and issues and provide support in times of crisis. I have a great deal of experience and expertise in helping people with depression, chronic low mood, symptoms of depression such as stress and anxiety, and stress and anxiety related conditions. I have experience working with young people as well as adults and welcome older adults too. I enjoy working with counselling students and offer a concessionary rate.
We can get a great deal of relief from distress and unhappiness by talking through problems with an understanding, experienced, supportive and non-judgemental counsellor. Often this can be enough to help gain perspective, relief, and resolution. Sometimes though, our difficulties are exacerbated by the way we sometimes think or view things. Discussing and exploring our thoughts and views can lead to seeing things differently and help alleviate difficulty and unhappiness. There may be a few or many factors involved in one's difficulties and unhappiness. Some factors may have deep rooted origins, some related to current circumstances. We can work together with what ever you bring to the counselling sessions.
The sessions cost £40.
For some years now I've been running mindfulness courses that are designed to prevent low mood/depression and components of depression such as anxiety and stress. This work and required training has helped me develop a particular expertise in the areas of depression and depression related conditions. Often it can be helpful to develop a mindfulness meditation practice alongside individual counselling or psychotherapy. If clients are interested in this there is the opportunity to enrol on the 8-week Mindfulness course. During courses participants are eligible for individual counselling sessions at a much reduced rate.
Confidentiality and Ethics
As a member of the UKCP I work within their strict Code of Ethics and Practice. This ensures good, safe and responsible practice. What client and therapist talk about during the consultation and any further sessions remains confidential.
Combe Down Branch Surgery is within easy reach of central Bath, Radstock, Midsomer Norton, Keynsham, Bradford on Avon and Frome. The Abbey Practice is next to the Abbey in Bath. The Bristol practice is easily accessible from most parts of Bristol. There is good public transport and free parking serving both the Bath and Bristol counselling practices (go to Contact & Directions to get a direct route/road directions from your home).
To make an appointment, or for advice about counselling, psychotherapy or courses please call or send an email.
