Tanya Ratcliff Counselling

About Me

My name is Tanya Ratcliff, I'm a registered MBACP counsellor based here in East Bristol at Sycamore House, and in Central Bristol. I have been offering counselling support since 2011 within the mental health and substance misuse sector. I work as an Integrative Humanistic Counsellor which means I use a range of therapeutic approaches to best aid you, guiding and

supporting you towards the changes you want to make.

If you're considering Counselling, you're probably experiencing some emotional challenges. Perhaps you’re feeling stuck or your struggling with loss, relationships and uncertainty. Battling feelings of depression, worthlessness, anxiety, or stress, you may even be experiencing a variety of physical symptoms. I offer confidential private one to one counselling with adults of all ages on a variety

of issues and have highly specialist knowledge and experience within:

Alcohol/gambling addiction


Bereavement grief and loss

Depression and low mood

Feeling stuck - patterns of thinking and behaviours

Low self-confidence, self-esteem, belief

Life changes


Stress and burnout

I don’t believe there is a ‘one size fits all’ solution to counselling, everyone is unique,

and our bespoke one to one sessions of counselling will reflect this.
