During the lockdowns in 2019 and 2020 I ran regular Mindfulness Sessions and a small Practice group developed.  Now we are moving away from lockdowns these sessions are continuing, but not so frequently.  I am currently running 30-40m, free, zoom Mindfulness Sessions at 7.15am on Friday mornings.  Occasionally, this is changed to Friday evenings, for those who cannot join the sessions on Friday morning.  Notice is sent out when this happens.  The session is drop-in;  just turn up as and when you can make it, without needing to sign up.  The session is not an introduction to Meditation or Mindfulness.  You will need to know how to meditate or practice mindfulness and would like to know more, please  email, call 07904 741524 or use the Contact page for more information.


My name is Barry Hill.  I have had a private Counselling Practice in South Bristol, UK for over 22 years.  My Practice is supported and inspired by over 17,000 hours of Counselling experience

My Counselling draws inspiration from Breathworks Mindfulness for Stress and Health, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Relationship Coaching, Non-violent Communication (NVC), the Time to Think work of Nancy Cline, Bereavement Counselling, Meditation and Buddhism as well as Person-centred and Integrative Counselling.  This counselling website will give you information about my background and qualifications, how and where I work as a Counsellor, as well as the chance to download, some writing about Mindfulness and related topics.

As we emerge from a very long period of lockdown in the UK during which I worked exclusively by Zoom or Facetime with all clients, Counsellors and Therapists are needing to decide if, and how, we will return to face to face work.  When will it be safe enough?  How will we deal with Track and Trace which would require sharing of Client information?  How should we transition from one way of working to another?  I am still thinking about these questions and seeking Supervision support, as well as conferring with other Counsellors who are working through similar questions.  But, for now, I am still only offering Zoom and Facetime sessions.

My hourly fee for 2022 is £25ph (lncome Support) - £35ph (Low/Living Wage) or £45ph (Full Salary) depending on income. 

Relationship Counselling for couples is £35ph (Income Support) - £45ph (Low/Living Wage or £55ph (Full Salary), depending on income.
Fees can be discussed when we meet. 

After an initial period of weekly Counselling, it may be possible to offer an option to attend fortnightly to ease financial outlay.  The cost of fortnightly sessions would be negotiated.

Sometimes, lifting up the telephone or sending an enquiry email to a Counsellor is a major step toward caring for yourself and meeting your needs during upsetting or confusing times.  If you want to chat about Counselling or any of the other services you see here you can email, call 07904 741524 or use the Contact page.
