Established in 1992 by psychotherapist Jill Brown, The Harbour provides free, professional counselling and psychotherapy to people facing emotional and psychological crisis as a result of life-threatening illness. Clients include those suffering from life-threatening illness, loved ones, carers and those who have been bereaved due to illness.
Regular counselling provides a time and space where you can explore how you feel about what is happening, and also consider the impact that the past life experiences may be having now. It is a time when you can speak about things that are difficult to share with people close to you, and begin to make sense of experiences.
They work in a comfortable location in central Bristol. The services are unique, accessible and confidential, delivered by a qualified, experienced team who adhere to the BACP Code of Ethics and Practice.
They support around 300 people each year, offering 1:1 counselling, couples counselling, or group therapy depending on the needs of each client. This support can be a lifeline that for people who feel isolated, worried, in fear and/or at a loss in their relationships. It can help them to find the strength to manage their lives.
