Sometimes relationships can go through difficulties which may seem too big to deal with on your own or where you have reached an impasse and don’t know what to do next.  At those times it can be beneficial to seek the help of someone independent, who will support and guide you as you work through those difficulties together.  I will work with you in a non-judgmental and respectful way which enables both of you to express how you feel and ensures that you both are heard.


We will explore the different aspects of the relationship and come to a better understanding of how come the current state of the relationship is not what you would hope for, so that you can move forward towards greater awareness and intimacy.


In my experience some of the most common problems which couples undergo are:


▪ Money Matters

▪ Work-life Balance

▪ Trust

▪ Communication Problems

▪ Cultural Differences

▪ Blended Families

▪ Parenting

▪ End Of Relationship

▪ Sexual Issues

Whatever the issues you are facing in your relationship, counselling can help you come to a better understanding of yourselves and of each other, and discover new depths and connections.

Lesley Brentley: Relationship & Couples Counselling Bristol.


I have a great deal of experience working with children and teenagers, both in my roles within the teaching profession and as a counsellor. Since completing my initial training I have undergone studies in therapeutic play and attended many workshops which focus on children and young people.


In my work with this age group I involve parents/carers in the process, as it is important that all those concerned with the young person’s well-being have a good understanding of their needs and can support the counselling process. This means that I will be in touch with parents/carers at times agreed by all concerned – not least the young person her/himself.  The sessions remain confidential between the young person and myself unless I have cause for concern. All this will be explained at the first meeting. Sessions will involve talking and often play, drawing, writing or whatever activity I feel will help the young clients to express themselves and make meaning of their situations.



To make an enquiry or to request further information regarding either young adult or child counselling, please feel free to email via the website contact form or telephone direct on: 0778 6742 459.

ABOUT ME ― COUNSELLING BRISTOL

Before training to become a counsellor I taught for a number of years, primarily in secondary schools and worked also with years 5 and 6 in a primary school, where I had the pleasure of being able to develop positive relationships with children, young adults and their families. I particularly enjoyed my role as Head of Year, where I was able to work with the students, as individuals and in groups, who may be having difficulties in a whole variety of areas.


It was largely my experience of and interest in this type of work within the teaching context which led to my decision to train as a professional counsellor.  I undertook my training at the University West of England in south Bristol and began my counselling service in St Andrews in 2011.  I find it a great privilege to be able to accompany and therapeutically support my clients through new discoveries and changes in their lives.

I have also had experience of providing training to support staff in schools.
