    Welcome ...

    I’m not a great fan of long words & fancy titles, i think it can be even more confusing and distressing. It’s much simpler to say that I’ve been helping people heal from Trauma, Depression & Anxiety, I’ve been doing it for over 25 years & I’m qualified and accredited to do it! I have two practices one in Bristol & one in Bridgwater.

    My specialism is working with people who have experienced childhood trauma. That said i also support people with a wide range of mental health issues.

    Its daunting reaching out to a stranger, especially if you experience anxiety. I offer a free initial consultation for exactly that reason. No obligation, no pressure just a chat to see if i’m someone you can work with. You can make your own free appointment using the “ready to start?” button.

    I’d be really happy to meet you.

    Some background

    Arkesie began life in 2004 as a provider for therapeutic support for people in crisis. Our vision was to build a centre of excellence offering people from all walks of life access to a complete treatment facility. Over the many years, we have streamlined our treatment to focus on Childhood Trauma, Complex Trauma, Depression & Anxiety. We also offer subsidised therapy for vulnerable groups.

    We focused on developing and adapting the various treatments for these issues including C.B.T – D.B.T – I.P.T, as well as a fully integrative Psychotherapeutic approach. We are constantly evaluating new ways of approaching mental health issues in the light of research and new methods so we always remain current.

    We work with people on a one-to-one basis & we also hold group days & training events & workshops throughout the year offering specific training as well as an opportunity to network & gain support.

    Our mission is to provide open & transparent psychotherapeutic care using the best up-to-date treatments through a valuable, relationship-based alliance. As such we always welcome feedback & suggestions.
