Jill Edwards Counselling

18 Altringham Rd, Bristol BS5 7AS, UK – 0117 939 3240

Jill Edwards is a warm, kind and caring woman. I was at first sceptical of visiting a counsellor as I wasn’t sure about it and didn’t understand how it would work but I was desperate so I had to try something. 3 months on I am a different person, I feel stronger, confident and I am excited about what tomorrow brings. Although I still have some work to do Jill has helped me turn my life around, something which I never thought was possible. I would recommend Jill to anyone who is suffering from depression and anxiety.

Heart to Heart Bristol

Kingswood House, South Rd, Bristol BS15 8JF, UK – 07926 314739

Absolutely brilliant. I've been to my fair share of therapy with all different people and it never worked for me, never found someone who I contacted with enough to open up and be honest. Kerry was amazing, never pushed me, just let me go at my own pace. If I need help again I will only go here.

Affordable and good is a rare combination when it comes to this kind of thing but Heart to Heart definitely ticks both boxes! Great counseling service. Kerry is wonderful and I assume the rest of the team are as well. Highly recommend!
